Yep, it's a pretty common problem

Lemme juuuuuust take a look here. General Chiptractor sent me—said you needed some help. Yeppers, I can see why. Simple case of thee uh, crank shaft disconnecting from the fetzer valve. Those valves are, uh, notorious in these here '76 Jimmys. Yepp-per. Now, you prepare that Fetzer valve with some, uh, 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads, and she should be good to er, go there.

He's just lifting the truck up a bit so the mechanic can shimmy under there.

No way to add to Meg's commentary. This is *hilarious*. Why can't I have a kitty mechanic?

This is definitely one for the cute caption contest.

Good idea, Beckio! Added!

Hahaha!! A super-smaht kitty here...

Makes me think of when the accelerator kept getting stuck on my old Honda. Verry unpredictable, till my mechanic found a hickory nut that kept rolling around and getting caught in the mechanism. Uh-huh, General Chiptractor should clean up after himself better, maybe...!!

awww cute little mechanic kitty.

or is his head stuck inbetween the pipes? that would be a revolting development. would probably cost the car owner a few extra hundred bucks

I think people who force their pets to do chores are mean.

You have to watch out for mecatnics. They're all a bunch of crooks.

Don't you mean "cat-rate" feline mechanics, jackie?

AuntieMame

I thought she meant "cute-rate" feline mechanics...

Elizabeth

I think this mechanic should (errrr) pick up the tabby for this job.

Seriously now, maybe he could be a correspondent for Car Talk! (At very least, their mascot.)

E. Collison
 |  May 07, 2006 at 07:33 PM

Maybe it's a problem with the flux capacitor.

I keep thinking that my tabby needs a job, she's at the elbow of any workman who comes into my place. "What're you doing? Can I help? *Now* what're you doing?"

KNOW YOUR NORSE MYTHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS
(part 6 in a 34-part series)

Nearly forgotten among the lesser Norse deities is Geirgaardsenjansvaaldul, a helpful household imp often depicted with the body of a kitten and the head of a 1967 Buick Skylark.

Never depicted without his tools, including his mighty HaammurSchlankenKlaff (Hammer of Very Urgent Banging), Geirgaardsenjansvaaldul was the God of Household Repairs, said to intercede when appliances that had mysteriously stopped working mysteriously started working again at almost the most convenient time, like when your DVD player won't eject the disc for three days, even when you try unplugging it and waiting for thirty minutes before plugging it in, like it says to do in the manual, and it still doesn't work and so you have to go to Blockbuster and pay for another week, and then when you get home and try pushing the button one more time and the disc comes out just like it's supposed to.

Thanks for the laugh Other Mike - I needed that tonight!

arbed
 |  May 07, 2006 at 08:26 PM

Arbed: You're welcome, but why are you so in need of a laugh tonight? What's the matter -- Windows won't boot? TV on the fritz? Just leave a door or window cracked open before you go to bed tonight, wide enough for a '67 Skylark to fit through, and in the morning, your troubles will be over!

 |  May 07, 2006 at 08:42 PM

Mike, I'm so relieved I wasn't drinking when I read that. Otherwise you'd be footing the bill for a new shirt, new shorts, kew keyboard, new monitor...and a replacement sheet for the drywall behind my computer!

pheral

NTMTOM----Lol--Love your comparison to the stuck dvd. I had that happen and was ready to unplug the player and take it to Blockbuster with me! I hate paying those late fees.

This pic is so funny.

Meg----What's a fetzer valve do?

Michele
 |  May 08, 2006 at 06:36 AM

This is GENIUS. I love this! The pic composition, the captioning, the fact that it's a dreary Monday morning & yet I have this to soften the blow.

I'll try to be clever later. Cheers, all.

Theo
 |  May 08, 2006 at 07:13 AM

That sort of bothers me. I'd hate to hear about another kitty getting hurt by sneaking inside of the car parts.

Pheral -- mabe we need to start a glee club. And if we're gonna do the Billy Joel thing, then *this* one's a definitive a-capella standard:

(dum dum dum)
"Wooooh-oh-oh-oh, for the longest time..."

Hmm, except maybe this should go under the lovebirds' post, eh?

Theo
 |  May 08, 2006 at 09:25 AM

[teeth sucking sound, head-scratch, removal of wedgie in coveralls, and sucking on hand-rolled cig]
Well, I can see what the problem is - you've blown your felangie rod here, see, and when it blew it sent bits of the 3rd fetzer valve down into the fatonk case. So we're looking at a complete strip down and rebuild.
Cost? Do me a favour, luv - it's these foreign cars, you know, it's not the labour but we have to have the part shipped from Azurbaijan. I reckon it'll cost at least [mental calculation, based on current tab at OTB, how cute the owner is, and whether or not he/she looks like she'll take it somewhere else for the estimate]...Oi! Sid! What's a new felangie rod on a 73 Pythagaros cost? (A 73? That's one of the old ones, innit? Lemme see if it's in the book...no, Vince, it's not in the book, have to call them direct). Tell you what, luv - leave it with us for a day or 2 and we'll get back to you with the price, awwight?

GDA/LDCH/whatever your screen-name is now... I'm of the Billy Joel era (more or less). Our 13-yr-old is of the Green Day era.
'sall good.

Other Mike - well, it was just too darn cold last night to leave the window open. I'll await the Skylark tonight....
