Pink Thing of The Day: ‘Drive Pink’ Vanity License Plate

OK, so the vanity plate on the front of this Toyota truck could be translated a couple different ways, I suppose. “DRV PNK” could also be “Drive Punk,” but I think that the pinkish-hued Delicate Arch that you see on the Utah State license plates indicates that this message is meant to read as “Drive Pink.” As in, Drive Pink, Bitches!

Joss Paper is burned by the Chinese to honor the deceased. Traditional Joss Paper, or ghost money, is commonly found in the form of squares of rough bamboo paper printed with seals and rectangles of gold or silver. More contemporary forms of Joss Paper include hell notes, often with denominations of $10,000 to $5,000,000,000. There are also elaborate, faithful paper reproductions of everyday objects such as suits of clothes, shirts and ties, high heel shoes, cell phones, cameras, computers, packs of cigarettes, bottles of alcohol, toothpaste, false teeth and makeup kits. Larger Joss objects include television sets, jet planes and Mercedes Benz automobiles.

These items represent the favorite objects of the dead, and when they are burned the items are sent along with the dead into the hereafter. They are made of papier mache and waste paper from packaging, and the backs and undersides of the objects sometimes reveal the logos of the various products they originally packaged.  The Joss Paper objects themselves sometime feature parodies of familiar logos, such as Kekou Cola and Halloro Lights cigarettes.

On Sunday, May 17th I attended the first annual Great Big Bacon Picnic, held out at the old Pfizer building in Williamsburg, where I ate Bacon until I wished to seen no more Bacon. It was a crazy fun time! My full report of the event complete with tons of pictures, is up now at Skulls and Bacon. Please check it out and feel free to re-post and tweet the link to all of your Bacon Loving Friends!

Here is a car that you definitely have to hand wash (or should we say ‘hand shampoo’?) only. No clue as to whether the fur covering keeps the car’s interior warmer.
