After a tough day at work, I headed home, following another 4WD. Eventually I made out the white letters at the top of the rear window - "NISSAN RECOVERY VEHICLE". I thought, didn't realise Nissan was so service-minded that they provided this sort of 'after sales service'! A few Kms later,(now you know it really was a tough day!), I realised that the vehicle ahead was a Landcruiser! Cheeky, but funny and it lifted my mood before I reached home.

Several of your 'signature blocks' did much the same thing when I began visiting this forum. Angle parked in a parallel universe, interesting definitions of auditors (esp as we were being externally audited at work that week!), normal being a cycle on a washing machine - all memorable. I'm going to have to come up with something good before I member up too.

Who else has met some humour worth sharing?

Many Nissans have a sticker near that big steel loop on the back that says "Attach Buggered Toyota here". Also quite funny.

Works both ways and usually taken in very good humour. Occasionally somebody takes it a bit far but they soon get ignored!

I have seen similar bumper stickers for Nissan's that say "Attach buggered Toyota here".

I came across a memorable "signature" on another forum recently and thought it was good enough to copy down. Apologies if I am stealing someone else's thunder.

"Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely with an attractive preserved body but rather to skid in sideways champagne in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming Wooohoooo - what a ride!"

As I said, sorry if it is your line I am quoting but I thought it was a good one.

Cheers

Hi there,

I have always liked:

"Half a loaf is better than no rest at all".

However, on the beach north of Newsa last weekend, I did see a hot Zuke with a "Prado Recovery Team" sticker on it.

Have seen one that say’s (This car is insured with the mafia, You hit us we hit you!)

Have also seen one on the back of a HI-LUX paying out on ford, and the funny thing was when I almost had to rescue him in my Ford.

Then if I had got bogged a Nissan properly would of come along and we both would have had Red Facers.

Maybe not so much as a joke but I love the irony. When we go to Landcruiser Park - their recovery vehicles are Nissans. (Not that we have ever needed them you just gotta ask)

P.S. I do own a Toyota too.

I used to see a guy in traffic years ago in Sydney. He was riding a rather large motorcycle and had printed on his leathers "Volvo Aware Rider" each of his motocross boots had written on it "Volvo Repellant" .

As I was also riding a bike at the time and had had a number of near misses with said "safest car in the world" I could easily identify with him.

On a 13 truck tag-a-long, 5 LCs, 5 Patrols incl. One of the LC drivers did a fantastic job in producing Toyota driver menus (cavier, t-bone, champagne, single malt, etc), and Nissan menus (rump, scrambled eggs, cordial, etc). Also great Nissan Recovery Vehicle banners for the Toyotas to wear.

They don't share our vision on what is funny!

If the shoe was on the other foot, they would have no consern for delivering the upward thrust to our groins, so why not enjoy the humour while we are able.
