What does a green, creative, flat-headed monster do on his weekends?
Aside from monster gardening and respectfully attending monster-morning-prayer there’s not much left.

Our suave shambler likes to croon about his favourite gal.

This was from a vid done for songwritin,’ pickin,’ strummin’ and wailin’ country dude Chas Williams. (see

Even everyone’s favourite wolfman finds his hairline receding… you know when it’s time for that “50 plus” close shave!

You’re driving it, dude! The Kiwi perfection of petrol moderation.

Even by World War I the motorcar was a thirsty contraption.

The 12 step program at “Gasoholics Anonymous” is for HOBBY DRINKERS compared to the SUV’s guzzlin’ greatgrandaddies.
