Ahhh. The Hummer H2. It has all the pretension without any sophistication.

There's a party in my ears and everyone's invited. Great phrasing, T!

I tend to think of Hummers as autoposermobiles: if you see someone driving one, you automatically know he (and let's face it, 99.9% of them are men) is a poser.

They remind me of my old toy tonka trucks except I think my toys had more metal in the body.

Truer words have seldom been spoken, everyone. It highlights the very real difference between truly successful people - who typically prefer to fly below the radar - and people who THINK they're successful, or the nouveau riche, or others of that ilk, who do everything in their power to draw attention to themselves.

These are the people who get the chrome on their cars painted gold, who max out their credit so they can make the payments on that BMW, and who talk the talk more than they walk the walk. They WANT you to turn your head as they drive by in their posermobile.

And what of the truly successful folks? I believe it was Forbes Magazine a couple of years back that did a survey of what millionaires drive. The overwhelmingly popular choice among this set: the Ford F-150 pickup.

What is a Hummer?

Yeah, it's best just to ignore them, don't give them the satisfaction.

The only thing worse than an H2 is the toy H2 those poseurs can purchase for their children. Yuck. Teaching kids at such an early age that gas-guzzling pseudo-militarism is A-OK.
