Government Motors Reintroduces The Trans-Am
In a nostalgic move, GM has announced it’s bringing back the Trans-Am, as an all-inclusive automobile with the advanced, leading-edge “Pedal-Electro” propulsion system that will bring Pride to everyone. “This is not your average EV,” said Arden Hoffman, Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer for GM*, who is in charge of peddling the new pedal car. “Pedaling this baby charges the batteries and your cardiovascular system at the same time!”
Besides a revolutionary drive-train powered by pedaling, a generator attached to the drive-train helps charge the batteries that supply power to lights, computers, and a 200-watt Bose® audio system with a super sub-woofer that provides an inspiring booma booma booma to sync your pedaling. “The new Trans-Am will keep you in shape,” commented a short-of-breath Mark Tatum, GM board member, and Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer of the NBA, after taking the 3000-pound Trans-Am for a test pedal. “It weighs much more than it looks with that compact body.”
Other innovative features include a no-roof, open cockpit-style interior that provides natural airflow to keep you cool while pedaling with pride.
*Arden Hoffman’s real position and titles.
After my more serious post with a protest song yesterday, I figured a chaser of satire with photos of trees and clouds was in order for today.

Beautiful cloudscapes! I’m incredulous that Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer for GM is a real job title, even after I looked it up. Reminds me of a former colleague who referred to her boss as the “Mulit-site Potato Baker.”
I couldn’t have made that one up. I laughed out loud when I first read that title. It was so perfect of my little piece of satire. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Clouds and trees are always favorites of mine. You have some of the best skies, day or night, anywhere in the west.
Yanno… I think lots of people could benefit from this new car 😉 What a crazy title!
Beautiful cloud images, my friend.
Thanks, Dale. Pedal power!
Yabba Dabba Dooooo!
Someone needs to introduce a Flinstones pedi-powered stoneage stoner car. They could call it the 420 BC model.
You know it!
Excellent satire! You kept a straight faced tone throughout the piece. This could easily have been written for The Onion.
Just the facts! Thanks, JYP.
A ha ha haaa…. they could also consider these alterations: https://anmarcreative.com/2022/01/08/paraphernalia-19-%cf%80%ce%b1%cf%81%ce%b1%cf%86%ce%b5%cf%81%ce%bd%ce%ac%ce%bb%ce%b9%ce%b1-19/
Satire and paintings make my week start off on the right side!
So happy to see my Incognito Tree reaching to the sky!
Thanks, Marina. The flower power propulsion system would be perfect. You tree has been wanting more atention.
I think it would! 🤣
Lol. Only you. Great post. Made me laugh.
I’m happy you got a laugh out of it. We need more laughter these days. Thanks, Shey.
We sure do.
Hilarious satire piece!!! 😉 And, love the lovely cloud photographs! So dreamy.
I’m so happy you found humor in the satire. Thanks, Samantha.
Very funny post with fabulous photos!
Thanks, Dawn. Im happy you found it funny.
Does it come with a USB plug in every seat like those new fangled, revolutionary yellow buses being touted by this administration!?! Hilarious by the way.
Lol, that Trans Am doesn’t look like one. The V8 isn’t sticking out high enough. 😂 I’m thinking you did some art magic. Funny post, Tim!
I sure like laughing. Thank you!
I added a bit of color to it. I’m happy you liked it and got a laugh. We need more laughter. Thanks, Resa.
