In the small, northern town of Hopedale, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, lives one of my closest friends: a school teacher named Jon Garland. Jon is not very happy. He’s not very happy because, on March 25th, 2008, Jon Garland’s Bombardier 2006 Expedition 550 Ski-Doo Exploded. And here’s the best part: when Jon first called Bombardier, they responded that it wasn’t a warranty issue. That’s right, spontaneous explosion of a motorized vehicle is not a warranty issue. What the fuck is it then? Oh, oh! I know! How about a criminal negligence issue! How does that sound Bombardier?
Here are the pics.
Not only does Bombardier seem to make exploding Ski-Doos, apparently their warranties suck. Look for this in the upcoming books: Chicken Soup for the Evil Capitalist’s Soul and The Audacity of Douchebaggery.
