the damage was done


Y’know, you really shouldn’t be surprised when your automobugg becomes a byword for failure when you give it wheels that look like that.


Mr Bugg is sitting in a convertible car, antennae on its hood. He looks ever so sad, and I’m guessing that’s because the car will never drive: It has square wheels. Mrs Bugg is holding a pen and a clipboard, having undoubtedly just drawn a decisive line through “Buggsel” on her production schedule.

The text reads: “Bugvember 19, 1959: Bugg Motor Company discontinues the unpopular Buggsel.”
