First Hubcap of the Year


I live on 24th Avenue West, which gets a lot of traffic. Every year I find a few of these by the side of the street. Any suggestions on good uses for stray hubcaps?

I say start nailing them to your house, and in 4 or 5 years you'll gain a reputation among the neighborhood kids as "crazy hubcab lady."

I think you should make a giant clock necklace for your flava-flav costume.

That's no hubcap, that's a portion of the circoleum steel pan unit from the music-o-matic drives on my spaceship--we always disguise our advanced technology as rusty, irrelevant accoutrements to polluting, primitive transportation so you Terrans don't figure out the musical secrets to interstellar travel. 

Just leave it on your roof--i'll drop in to retrieve it--thanks!

"Detroit sombrero":  good for spring hail storms, textile-free days, and general hatlessness.

1. Pan for gold in Lester River.
2. Anal shield (a must for any trip to Iowa these days).
3. Lightweight camping toilet.
4. Replacement for the missing hubcap on your shitty car.
