The Lorax hates Vipers
The Lorax is an animated movie that tries to deliver the message that it is bad to cut down trees for short-term personal gain, which is a nice message, I suppose. But then it turns its attention to the evils of big business and successful entrepreneurs. People should leave the environment alone, renounce large corporations and money, and live in a perfect utopia of cottony trees and adorable forest creatures under sun-drenched skies. Danny DeVito voices the Lorax, protector of the forest.
No doubt about it, they were doing everything the Lorax warned us about—raping the environment of precious fuel to feed inefficient vehicles for personal indulgence. They probably killed a bunch of live teddy bears and animated fish just to be able to afford these evil machines.
One thing’s for sure; these cars do draw a crowd. There were all kinds of people taking pictures, letting their grubby little kids touch things, and otherwise acting like the cast of Glee made a stop at Russell Stovers. I’m still more of an old Chevy truck kind of guy, but I can’t deny the power of exotic cars.
So anyway, here it is, a little surprise coverage of a fancy car show. I also took a couple of pictures of the cool Walter P. Chrysler statue at the Legends, all of which is in the little slideshow below. Everybody seemed to be having a good time—but it was definitely not Lorax-approved.
