FUH2 !



Yes...That's me giving the finger to the Hummer 2 (H2).

Go to

Then click on "submissions"...

This site is dedicated to "flipping the bird" to this gas-guzzling monstrosity (The H2 Salute).

Here's the lowdown (in their words):
The H2 is the ultimate poseur vehicle. It has the chassis of a Chevy Tahoe and a body that looks like the original Hummer; i.e. it's a Chevy Tahoe in disguise.

The H2 is a gas guzzler. Because it has a gross vehicle weight rating over 8500 lbs, the US government does not require it to meet federal fuel efficiency regulations. Hummer isn't even required to publish its fuel economy (owners indicate that they get around 10 mpg for normal use). So while our brothers and sisters are off in the Middle East risking their lives to secure America's fossil fuel future, H2 drivers are pissing away our "spoils of victory" during each trip to the grocery store.

The H2 is a polluter. Based on G.M.'s optimistic claim that it gets13 mpg, an H2 will produce 3.4 metric tons of carbon emissions in a typical year, nearly double that of G.M.'s Chevrolet Malibu sedan.

The H2 is a death machine. You'd better hope that you don't collide with an H2 in your economy car. You can kiss your ass goodbye thanks to the H2's massive weight and raised bumpers. Too bad you couldn't afford an urban assault vehicle of your own. Or could you...?

The H2 is a tax loophole. Under Bush's new tax plan, business owners can deduct the entire cost of their $55,000 H2. If you are in the highest tax bracket, that's a tax savings of nearly $20,000! The government rewards you more savings for buying an H2 than you'd get for buying an electric car.

So, if you see it our way, tell a Hummer owner what you think and show 'em the bird. If you do, send us a picture--we'd love to post it on our site.


I completely agree. This "urban assault vehicle" aggravates the hell out of me.
So, seeing as how we have loads of them in Kuwait, I decided to go out H2 hunting (I submitted these images). They should be posted on their site soon.

I hope that this provides a little "environmental-awareness" and a little humor...

Enjoy!

I'm sure as hell that I commented here but it just doesn't show. So here it goes again ...

I like the fact you changed positions every time you finger a hummer.
By the way, Nice Wristband.
 
hydrogen is the solution to all these problems
 
why travel a hummer if you can travel in time
 
hmm thats for me only!!! no one else is allowed to travel in time.

I saw one today, maroon colored, on the other side of the road, so I could not take a picture, since i was in traffic.
 
It Sucks, I mean if you can't give a finger in the middle of the street where else are you going to finger then.
 
I saw one today in Jabriyah, black one with hmm I do not know what plates they would be, but I think they are for commercial cars
 
I saw another one today, unless it is the same black one I saw ames going from Ahmadi to kuwait city on the high way.
 
I saw another one, this time near Shamya, beige one.
