I love when companies have a sense of humor. Tonight, I registered for an account on the MINI Cooper USA website (droooool), and at the end, the following disclaimer came up:

I understand that by signing up I agree to the following: For the sole purpose of giving me the best service possible, I agree to let MINI share the information I provide with other groups in the immediate MINI network, such as MINI dealers.  MINI will never sell the information I have given.  Nor will they share it with any 3rd parties that have no clear and direct link to MINI.  Furthermore, even other groups within the immediate MINI network will never contact me in any way shape or form until I have explicitly granted them permission. I also agree to avoid ruts. And I agree to change my locker combination to include the numbers 1964 (the year we won our first Monte Carlo rally). I agree to chase squirrels around the park every now and then and giggle like a madman while doing it. I agree to be more adventurous and try to avoid homogenized restaurant chains. I agree to name my first-born Cooper. I agree to bare the soles of my feet to the earth and feel grass, sand, stones, and streams. I agree to watch the movie "The Italian Job" as soon as I can. I agree to at least think strongly about learning to play a musical instrument. I agree to consider painting the roof of my house in contrasting colors. I agree to the terms.  Sign me up.

Now that’s funny shit.


I want a ride in your mini

Ah, The Italian Job… There’s nothing better than a young, smart, sexy Michael Caine!
