Buh-bye to the Hummer.
I never got to ride to prom or my wedding in a Hummer limo.
I never got to compensate for inferiority complexes and/or small genitals by steering a Hummer through traffic on Hollywood Boulevard.
I never got to play out macho warfare fantasies by renting a Hummer and driving through the mean dessert roads of Palm Springs.
I never even got to test drive a Hummer. Mostly because the idea of sitting in one made me a little bit queasy.
But for all the good times I had making fun of Hummers, Hummer drivers, and everything Hummer-related, I thank GM and bid the grand ole automotive American symbol of excess and greed a fond farewell.
