This is awesome—reminiscent of Judge Reinhold having to wear the pirate costume in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Who's the schmuck that has to drive this Quality Shoes Inc. boot/car around? Not that any employee who drives this is actually a schmuck (we all gotta make a living), but, jeez, why make anyone drive around in a clown car—except, that is, the clowns? Then again, perhaps, it's solely the owner's ride, and, if that's the case, it's only upsetting our aesthetic sensibility. [RackedWire]
