    Don’t forget that the thing industry center also translates the area…

    Decades ago, Volkswagen did manufacture a utility car known as “The Thing” (in the USA anyway) for a couple of years. It was based on the World War Two Kubelwagen.

    As warnings go, this one’s a bit Grimm.

    Well. I guess an autonomously operating “THING” beats a dildo hands down.

    Assistant: “Hello. Customer Service here.”

    Cust: “Look gentlemen, I’d like to change my “Thing” for a newer model. The present one I have, doesn’t seem to work anymore.”

    A: “Well sir. The model you describe has been obsolete for over fifty years.”

    C: “Oh! What can I do?”

    A: “Well sir. You would have to upgrade the complete assembly. I don’t wish to be rude, but do you think you would get enough service out of a newer model, to make it worth the time and expense?”

    C. “Let me be the judge of that, my good fellow. What is available in the newer models?”

    A: “I think you will find our range quite extensive sir.. We have named them quite poetically.
    #1. Much ado about nothing model.
    #2. As you like it model”
    #3. The taming of the shrew model.
    #4. Our top of the range; A Midsummer Night’s Dream model.

    I can assure you sir, that our secretary road tests every newly installed model, before it leaves the factory. Unfortunately, due to lack of equipment of suitable capacity, she is unable to test model #4. However, she can run it up by hand.”

    C. “Ok! I will ask my wife and get back to you.”
