It's actually brake fluid not brake fluid.

Is your establishment by any chance affiliated with this fine center of learning as endorsed by the renowned Dr. Boli?

Darrick Lim said...

Brilliant stuff Mr Jago. Duly shared and disseminated (with credit to you naturally).

Rob said...

Wonderful. This is going to be a classic.

They weren't getting the custom they thought they 'orta, so they consulted a brand consultant. Consequently, they ditched the name "The New Age Vehicle Well-Running Centre" and have relaunched as "Karma Kanics"

Ah darn - I was going to use the same idea as part of our inaugural Cork Skeptics in the Castle meeting next week. Great minds thinking alike and all the rest of it.

I love it by the way.

@anon

Thanks for the new title suggestion. I've knicked it.

It really drives home the point!

Interestingly, a mate of mine lived next door to a Wiccan who had a rather elderly Renault. He was often seen in the street making strange gestures in front of the car in an attempt to get the thing to start.

I'm surprised there is no mention of homeopathic horsepower - the aincient art of diluting petrol with water in order to save money on fuel (and enhance the potency of the fuel, thereby improving performance whilst simultaneously reducing emissions harmful to our environment).

Some say that this is now why bottled water is the same cost per litre as fuel when brought from a service station.

Brilliantly clever!
I had a god belly-laugh throughout.
How on earth did you think of the VW Yin/Yang symbol?
Lots of really good puns as well.

Fantastic.

Don't forget "Faith Fixing", perhaps the most common form of CAM - you don't actually do anything, you just really really want the car to start, and if it seems to be having trouble, you mutter "start you stupid bastard" until it does?

Laughed a lot.

Nice CAM-shaft Mr Jago.

"Dennis" aka David Mabus is on a bit of spamming spree at the moment.

Markuze is back on his meds. At least enough to locate the Nurse's computer in his ward.

Why is there no mention of Rubropuncture Therapy here?
