Report: Perfect Parking Spot Right Up Front! UPDATE: Gah Friggin Motorcycle
Life · Apr 28, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A new report filed by the U.S. Department of Transportation finds that each and every time a motorist gets excited about a perfect parking spot at the front of a parking lot it turns out to be a "friggin' motorcycle."

"Hey, here's one - GAH! A FRIGGIN' MOTORCYCLE!" shouted Norman Dodgson, a volunteer who agreed to drive with researchers for six months. "I hate this! I DON'T WANT TO LIVE ANYMORE!"

The phenomenon - dubbed "Interstitial Motor Mirage" by researchers - occurs in crowded parking lots when drivers are most desperate for a space. Because motorcycles don't sit back in a space as far as full-sized vehicles the spot can appear empty and ripe for the taking.

In a majority of cases, the driver will not notice the space is occupied until after they've bragged to other vehicle occupants about how they just found a perfect spot before realizing their mistake and exclaiming: "GAH! A FRIGGIN' MOTORCYCLE!"

According to researchers, Interstitial Motor Mirage affects all drivers, even other motorcycle owners.

"UGGGGGGH!" wailed Charlie "Dasher" Bowman, a tough guy on a Harley Davidson who often shopped at Bed Bath & Beyond. "Another friggin' motorcycle! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!"

Drivers who think they see a great parking spot and have their hopes immediately crushed are susceptible to fits of road rage, heart arrhythmia, and even death, say experts. In fact, DoT has filed a supplemental report on the researchers who died during the study.

In some rare cases, smaller vehicles can also cause Interstitial Motor Mirage - particularly the 1997 Geo Metro.


It's a serious medical emergency: you're minding your own business when you hear an opinion you slightly disagree with.
