Asians

I realized that I hardly ever see Asians driving pickup trucks or semi's. Why is this?

See Pat it's because Asians like our dear Nancy are too smart to drive trucks. They drive nice luxury cars that flaunt their hard-working over acheiverness. But let us dispell this phenomenon: Nancy, quick, go get a truck!!

Because the Mexicans and the hicks bought them all up.

It's true. We Mexicans do enjoy our pick up trucks.

Nancy said...

Well first of all, trucks are often driven by farmers and..there's no such thing as an asian farmer in America. Plus, asians always try to be thrifty, so you'll often see them in minivans and the like. We used to own one, but now we don't. We do have a Family Wagon though.

Oh and semis? Are you kidding me? You don't want asians driving semis. They'd be ten times slower than they already are and a lot of asians (ahemjapanese) wouldn't even be able to see over the wheel, so that wouldn't be good.

Ok, so I just asked my mom why asians don't drive trucks (no my mother does not sleep) and she said, "Because they don't do that kind of business, they do intellectual things." I'm not really sure what business she is referring to, but by 'things' she means engineering/medical jobs. I'd also like to add that there are no asian farmers in America because asian families don't empty out their life savings to send their kid to the US only to be a farmer. I mean, Mexicans can just scurry over the border whenever they please, but believe it or not, there's an ocean that separates Asia from America. Asian parents are pretty much investing in their kids when they ship them off and they expect a hefty return.

So yeah, that's why asians don't drive trucks.

I already told you that my cousin drives a truck, but on the way home today I saw an asian in a white pickup truck....

And now for a shameless plug...

Am I the first junior to comment on this blog?

First of all, I do believe it's true that currently Asians generally do not drive trucks. There are many reasons for this, but I do not care to go into detail, as many have been expressed previously. However I would like to point out that the current Asian generation is what I like to call the "auto-phile generation". That is, as they grow up, this generation of Asians (including myself) are growing ever more enthralled with cars.

What's my point? Well, I think there will be more Asians driving trucks in about 10-20 years. Me? I'll be driving a Nissan Titan. I like those better than Ford F-150's 'cause they tend to fit me better. I don't know why.
