But How Many Feet Does It Get Per Gallon?: A Giant Shoe Car (Don't Tell The Clowns!)

March 22, 2011


Jealous Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe is jealous.

It actually gets zero feet per gallon because it's electric. It does get 250 miles to a single charge at speeds up to 30MPH though, which isn't bad. Still no word if it comes equipped with modern safety features like ankle socks.

Ten feet long and more than three feet high, the leather bodywork of the electric shoe car is made in the same fashion as a normal shoe, but on a much larger scale. The hide of five bulls was needed and that's...no bull at all.

"It took six months to design and build the car at a cost of around £4,000... The company plans to make 40 of these vehicles for stores around the country," said Wang Zhengtao, Kang Company president.

Somewhere in heaven, five bulls are shaking their heads and blowing smoke out their ringed noses, disappointed. I can see it now:

"Dammit, I wanted to gore a bullfighter!"

"I wanted to be a rockstar's pants!"
"I wanted to run with my brethren in Pamplona!"
"I'd have rather been a gimp mask."
"I had dreams of becoming an expensive Italian sofa one day."
"I was kind of hoping to just f*** cows all day".

"Uh, GW? That was actually six bulls." Haha, no that last one was Old MacDonald. The dude's sick.
