So you say, your cart (Tiger) brokedown let
me tell you Albert, how many times I've been kicked by Bruno(His Tiger in the background).


My crew Conrad, Eric, Ernest and Klaus keep
getting a sticky feeling Bruno is a rebuild everything slapped together, and out the door.


Everything has gone wrong with it, Bruno has eight forward gears, but Klaus can only get six out of it. Reverse! with luck he can back
up, without hitting the gear shift with a hammer.
Bruno burns to much fuel and oil. I'll tell you, I think Bruno was a test vehicle, that had too many bugs, and they pushed him on us... so you think you have problems. Every army, has its motorpool Kings & Queens believe me, I've seen them.
