Cloverific Grade School Primer

clover lead

The following is interesting on several levels: First, contemplate the atrocious – borderline illiterate – construction of this instruction; the Cloverific short-bus cadences: “That means you are a member of our country.” “How can you be a part of giving back for the freedom you have?” “Good citizens take part in their community… that you show…

Half My Sticker Stack – Plus Winter Clover!

clover lead

Is gone! Anyone else out there want an EPautos sticker (or two) for their car or toolbox? Many more need homes! Will you help? Meanwhile, a very special thank you to one of EPautos’ regular supporters – “MB” – who just made a very generous donation. It’s supporters like MB who keep me from living in a van by…

Dump Truck Clover

dancing Clover

Here’s today’s Clover – the dump truck (or farm tractor) Clover: This is the Clover who (a) refuses to pass a lumbering/slow-moving vehicle traveling 20 MPH below the (under)posted speed limit. And (b) makes it hard if not impossible for anyone else to pass the lumbering/slow-moving vehicle. I encountered this Clover earlier today. He’s the one…

Dear Clover…

A woman walks past a building decorated with eyes in Crimean city of Sevastopol

EPautos’ resident authoritarian apologist – Clover – let fly with the following intellectually (and grammatically) palsied, ethically crippled commentary in defense of dragnet-style, random and arbitrary “safety” checkpoints: Eric asking you to stop and talk for 10 seconds is in no way injurious to you. If you believe it is violence to be stopped then…

The Won’t Pull Forward Clover

clover2

Here’s a Clover who won’t pull forward: Clover left more than a full car length between herself and the car ahead. This artifically extends traffic logjams and also means some people won’t make it to – or through – a green light because they’re stuck behind a Clover who for reasons of myopia or otherwise…

BMW Clover

EPautoslogo

Rolled up behind a BMW Clover the other day. Despite his “ultimate driving machine,” this “driver” apparently fears driving the speed limit – or even within 5 MPH of the speed limit: Which boggles me. I mean, why bother? Why buy a BMW? Or any vehicle with similar power/capability? Is there anything more absurd than…

Scooter Clover

dancing Clover

Actually, it’s the Clover behind the scooter. The scooter can’t help that it’s slow. Its rider is given’ ‘er all she’s got, cap’n! But the SUV behind the Clover – ahead of me – is 180 proof. The scooter outran the Clover. Ramping up to the impossible speed of 45 in a 55… too speedy…

Time Bandit Clover

Here’s a Clover encounter of the second kind – the Clover who likes to take his time… and yours, too: First, the Clover comes to a complete and extended stop at a stop sign even when it’s abundantly clear there’s no traffic coming. The video begins with him eventually creeping forward. After having stopped for…

Fuuhhhhhhhtttball Clover

dancing Clover

Here’s a fuhhhhhhhhhttttttball Clover. Guy in a truck doing 36 in 45, braking abruptly for no apparent reason: The back of his vehicle was festooned with two huge oversize representations of his favorite team – which everyone stuck behind him is forced to view. Fuuuuuhhhhhttttball worship and Cloverism are tandem sicknesses that derive from the…
