sc 62 Thog Want More.

April 13, 2010

Toppie’s car has developed a muffler problem so he has to take it in to the garage and get it fixed.  Yes, it’s another rip-off story!  Toppie goes into a rant about the whole world of car mechanics and car salesmen who are constantly poised to rip off the unaware consumer (Unaware consumer = Toppie Smellie).

“Let the buyer beware.”  Toppie describes his relationship with his car mechanic.  Can you say “screw job?”  It’s a bullshit screw-the-other-guy-because-he’s-too-stupid-to-know-better mentality that has existed since the beginning of time.

Listen to Ugh Toppie and Thog play out the world’s first salesman screw job.  Of course, the fact that Toppie is a big fat loser is evident when you learn what the mechanics discover when they go to work on his jalopy.

How’s Your Outstanding Debt?  Toppie receives a letter about the Consumer Debt Initiative.  Is it a scam or is it real? Even though 2010 is the year that Toppie will be completely out of debt, he wonders if he should have declared bankruptcy years ago.  Toppie describes his old hidey-hole apartment he spent ten years of his life living in.  Suddenly Toppie explodes and goes into a rant about his ex-lover, explaining why he signed away his future.  Let the consumer beware!  BEWARE CONSUMER!!!!!  BEEEEEEEEEEEEWAARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Moral of the story? Read the fine print, especially when it comes to relationships.
