Saturday Afternoon Fun! What Happened to My Neighbor's Car? (Just in time for Christmas)
Elk Grove Dan's Cul de Sac | 12/1/06 | ElkGroveDan

Posted on 12/02/2006 12:12:04 PM PST by ElkGroveDan

So I got home from cutting down a Chrsitmas tree this morning with my entire tribe of Elk Grovians. As we piled out of our gas guzzling Excursion, there was my neighbor (whom I'll call ElkGrove Mike) across the street examining his son's old Ford Ranger Truck.

What a mess!

Here's the picture I took after he began to clean it up. So for a bit of Saturday entertainment I'll take guesses as to what happened to the truck last night.

I'll post the answer in the form of earlier photos after we see about a dozen or so guesses. Let's have some fun with this, Freepers!

I'll go put the tree in water and then check back to see how far we've gotten.

a guy with a ladder on his truck backed into it.

I lived in Wooddale for about a year when I was a teen. Worked on Devon Avenue. First cars, first dates...ahhh...

Looks like a big icicle fell off the garage and broke the glass, just like what "happened" to Ralphie!

The Christmas tree was standing quietly by the side of the road when it suddenly made a dash for the other side?

That looks like my Ranger did after I caught a falling limb in a thunderstorm.

It made a real nice ride home at 2 AM with no wipers.

Someone who doesn't like your neighbor, took an axe to his windshield. Then, for good measure, he bent the radio antenae.

Nah---those are blue (the "flush liquid"/disinfectant is blue). That's why they call'em ICBM's (ICy Blue Missiles).

Icicles in Elk Grove? There are no icicles in Elk Grove (no elk either for that matter).

Not seeing the front grill, I would suspect Deer, as someone else has ascertained. Quite common here in the Hill Country of Texas.

He was driving behind someone with stuff in the back of a truck and it flew off and hit him?

I'm probably wrong, but I'm sure that's how I died in a former life.

It's pretty clear that this was caused by a combination of rainforest deforestation, global warming, GWB, golf prices in Scottsdale, steriods and the BCS. It was inevitable.

When I saw that first picture, I was trying to figure out what kind of a leg/hoof that was, until I finally saw the second picture. Fowl weather recently?
