How Many Miles Per Gallon do YOU Get?

Second Post of the day...that is a wonderment to be sure...does anyone use the word wonderment anymore? Well if they do then I did a wonderment kind of thing...

Man-Made Global Warming has me laughing all the way to Al Gore's fake Nobel Award. But Man-Made Gas Prices have me warming up to my new scooter! They call it an Aprilia Scarabeo 200--Italian Juice but Dutch Prices. I was going to go for the Kymco People 200 but Italy saved me another 100 bucks! I'm a fan of the Italians. Plus the Aprilia comes in blue and since I'm a Dodger fan I have to think about such things don't you know? It's not the same color blue...take off your glasses and it all looks the same!

To me it's a shiny blue fun-filled savings account...non-interest bearing of course.

Now, scooters don't cost very much and that's one reason to go for one of those rather than looking at a motor cycle or something...but 70-100 MILES PER GALLON OF GAS doesn't hurt my cause either. My Cause? Well...the Dutch blood that runs through my veins tell me that it's better to achieve quadruple mileage and save a bundle at the pump...besides it seems to me that even those who don't claim Dutch-ness will agree it's might be the smart solution. Either that or use Netflix and STAY HOME! But that's no fun.

Here's what I bought! Isn't it a wonderment?

It IS a wonderment. Nice. Do you think you could attach a carseat to one of those? I'm sure Lucas would enjoy it :).
