Hope this thread is not being read by PETA or any other activist group, else they would sue you for cruelty to fly's.

Default Birds,flies and animals in cars..

Why are birds,flies and animals found in cars?The reason is simple.They love cars and like to go for an occassional spin.!!!
On a serious note, its the assembly and the QC departments who have to be blamed.I feel its the negligence on part of the auto companies to check the car minutely before despatch, which results in such strange 'passengers' entering into the car.
And yes, this thread made my day..

What are the chances that its a firefly, and designed to stay illuminated even when the car is parked. A new Honda safety feature perhaps

Dude how fast did you drive your car? Now look what you have done, you gave the poor roach a heart attack ? or could it be the case where the roach took his/her own life because you were driving too slow ??.. a case for sherlock holmes to crack now.

I got this as a second hand car, possibly due to the previous owner trying to rotate number backwards in the meter.

@Rotorhead, very hilarious

Imagine what if these insects start re-producing in the cars!! I once broke my windshield as i tried to squat a mosquito in my car! Moral: Consequences can be expensive. Wash your car regularly and spray nice deodizers inside!

Default Monty goes to Honda Service

It happened one morning.

Monty was cleaning the tail lamp much as he always did, nonchalantly and absent-mindedly when he heard it again.

Bzz....plonk.

Now he KNEW he wasn't imagining it. But it made no sense... perhaps a safety feature...

And he saw it. Their eyes met and he realised, he had a fly in his tail lamp. The implications of it left him baffled.

His car was his life. Had he been sharing his life with someone else? Had his car been cheating on him by sharing its rear with another?
He peered in again, through the clear area provided for the reverse lights.

Seeing the fly in his lights triggered off a million unhappy nerves and Monty decided that very instant he would fly off to the Honda A/S/S.

Good morning Sir, how many I help you.
Makhi!!
Makhi?
Makhi! Fly!

The receptionist looks around confused.
Ramu zara hit le aana.
Hit! Monty Bellows. Wahan nahi hai. Gaadi mein hai.
Aapki gaadi mein hit hai?
Nahi. Meri gaadi mein Makhi hai.
Makhi?
Makhi. You know. Fly!
Fly?
Fly!!

Aapki gaadi...
Fly!
Monty Bellows.
Kahan??
Peeche. Tail lamp.
Tel me makhi? Fly in the oil?
No not Tel. Tail!! Poonch!!
Monty waves a tail behind him, angry and frustrated. Tail, tail, you know, like a dog. Woof Woof.
Tail?
Lamp. Tail-Lamp has a fly.

Fly?
Makhi!!


I see.

Of course she doesn't see.

She picks up the phone.
Mishraji yahan ek customer hai joh keh rahen hai ki... bzzbzzbzz (she speaks softly)
No Mishraji yahin khadi hai his car is very much on the ground, it's parked outside she says loudly.
Pata nahi. He's saying that the tail of the car is flying around.

Softer now, she cups the phone a little - Aur pata nahi kissi oil lamp mein makhi daal rahein hai. Aur keh rahe hain ki gaadi ki peeche se poonch nikal aayi hai kutton ki tarah. Bhonk rahen hai zor zor se, Mishraji customer is barking. Jaldi aaiye.

The plot thickens.
