When I was a kid in Newfoundland we did those same water crossings but we were in one of these:









My sister (who still lives in Nfld) recently posted a photo to FB of her stuck in traffic to which I replied "When did Newfoundland discover pavement?"

Nice safe but a bit overkill for Coors Light.

Yeah that's been making the rounds today.

Not sure how it ended....


And no telling exactly what precipitated all this, but at the 28 second mark, the asshat squid on the white bike intentionally slows down in front of the Rover in an effort to get hit. After the traffic came to a stop and the Range Rover gus was surrounded, I'm guessing he panicked and got the hell out of there......regardless of who or what was parked in front of him.
