Teen crashes car into house, brags on Internet

Import and domestic drivers call truce, join forces to flame asshat.

Just in case you haven’t heard about Panache yet, feel free to check out the photos he posted after crashing into a house. Long story short, he claimed that his throttle cable stuck which caused him to crash into a house. Eye witnesses and the house owner have registered on the forum and posted saying they’ve seen him speeding through the neighborhood before. That, combined with the fact that he’s had two other major accidents in as many months, has caused the surrounding Internet community to call BS on his story. You be the judge.

Tell R/West to Pull “Trunk Monkey” Ads

PETA issued the following alert regarding their protest against the Trunk Monkey ad campaign:

This advertising agency in Portland, Oregon, created a commercial called “Trunk Monkey” that portrays a tire iron wielding chimpanzee, stored in a car’s trunk, who can be summoned whenever the operator of the vehicle is harassed by another driver. The commercial is sold to car dealerships all over the country. Please write to R/West officials to ask that they retire the commercial and establish a policy against using live primates in their ads:
