I'm pretty sure most of you guys have heard the old “if programming languages were cars” joke, right? No? Well, let's try it on websites!

YouTube: is a car that is reliable and worthwhile that everyone uses, yet everyone has their own opinion on it and has to state it no matter how stupid it may be.

DrunkDuck: is not really a car, more like a frame. You'd be able to build and modify this frame to create a car. The car would range in quality depending on the driver. If your car sucked or looked ugly, no one would tell you.

Google: is an awesome car that runs well and could go on and on for miles. The downside would be that it knows everything about you, including your deepest darkest secret and social security number. The car would share this information with everyone.

ComicGenesis: is a car that you'd buy at the dealer since the deal was too good to pass up yet you'd have to wait two weeks to be able to drive it; When you finally receive the car, either you'd forgotten about it or would be too complicated to drive.

Any more?

Myspace:Is the largest people carrier going and will pick up every hitch hiker on its way. Then would share its information on all people in the car to anyone who asked.

Read the Author, its good i promise.

Facebook: is the hippie van of cars. You can fit at least 20 of your friends in the cab alone and it's where everyone talks about all the illegal things they have done in code. The van itself is stolen and it's something you can't really put behind you because the dealer doesn't want it back. They want you to have it forever. It ends up on your mom's back lawn.

Newgrounds: A car that took you months and months to build. You think you built a masterpiece. Until people around you think it's a piece of trash and kick it until it's no more. The people only like cars that are expensive and more shiney. Now, the car that you built before is weighing you down. When you walk down the street, people see you and say, “Oh. You're the guy that built THAT car.” You turn in shame. Weeks later, after recovering from a state of mental disorganization, you decide to try building a new one. You begin with different strategies. Different ways of experimenting. You finally finish, making this as beautiful as possible. It's the first day of its new life, and you are finally going to ride it. You put that new face into reverse, and slowly drive it out of the garage. The same garage you built that very car. You go onto the street and put it in drive. The wheels roll so smoothly. You love the feel. You put on that radio. Nice sound. You see the people. Oh no. They have an even better car. In comparison, your car doesn't even match this car. The people, again, spit on your car. You see that all of your tries are inevitable. You just keep going, but the people don't appreciate your attempts. They always say “Your car is getting better, but it may never beat the car of the owner down the street. You should just keep trying for another 50 years, or stop completely. Maybe that'll teach you to gain more talent for what you do. Go back into that garage and learn something that will possibly impress people.” You turn around, hurt and depressed, and you walk to your garage. You sit down on your working chair. That same working chair you built that broken car. You rest your elbow on your knee and think. Think. Think.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

Wikipedia: Everyone brings a piece of the car to you. These pieces would range in quality and unless they came with a footnote, they weren't reliable. From time to time, some people would remove the dashboard, windows, or the doors and either make them better or simply put “lol penis.” Months later, it would get deleted since no one could agree on whether it was worthy of being on the streets.

MapQuest: is the car that has a fancy exterior and interior and has a bulit in GPS system. You would tell the GPS system the location you wanted to go and it would suggest a location close to it. After you'd gotten the exact location you've wanted to go to, the car would drive itself to a location miles away from the original desired location.

Escapist Magazine:
You don't own this car, someone shows you this car. You hop in on occasion and experience it, rubbing your hands over the furnishings like you'd just taken a cocktail of illicit substances, the permanent new car smell overwhelms you, it's cocoon like interior makes the next sunrise seem that little bit easier to grasp.
And then it's over.

He who can.'

No, it wasn't mean at all! I actually fancied it! You and I both share the same reason to hate myspace for.

Dammit, Ozone. That's gonna bother me for the rest of the day now. ;)

Bohemian Trash's website (which includes my main site) is going to end up being a beat up ‘78 Camaro. It’s got that class, stance and style but something is always breaking on it. XD

My site is an '89 Shelby Daytona. But anyone could have guessed that. XD


MySpace is a Geo Metro. After the squirrel. Nuff said.

It's like a swap meet! Heehee - genius.

Any site with a bad virus on it is a giant semi about to crash into your computer!!

I don't know…perhaps Rainbow Carousel is a Gremlin. Smallish (the comic pages) yet oh so cute and stylish. I dunno, I just wanted to mention a Gremlin because I've always wanted one. XD

I don't know enough about cars. =P What would my site be?

What would my site be?

Vampire Phantasm Site: It'd be a car with a stylish interior and exterior that runs pretty well on streets and highways. Though using many of the features like the radio or the windshield wipers cause them to pop off the car and appear outside, where you'll have to step out of the car to use them for some reason. Also, when you're getting comfortable with the car, it gets recalled.

I hope that wasn't mean. :D

An old van that can fit a lot of people in it. Even if it's old, it's still respected by the public, and everyone loves to ride it. It's an old friend.

X-Entertainment

An old junker the driver got since he first got his license. Sure, all the “cool” kids with their expensive SUVs and sports cars point and laugh, but the driver loves the car, and he's gotten everything he could get out of the car with many more happy years to come. Oh yeah, and it's loaded with bobbleheads and dice and junk.

Runescape.com: people would choose whether to pay to play or just go in free. most people would choose free. and most people would see: swearing, scamming, idiots.
those who chose to pay would be treated like luxury.

Cheese.com:Cheese lovers unite in this car.

uh… what else…

even though it's already been done…

Myspace.com: A piece-of-crap car.
