sort of shimmy at high speeds

A Blonde ran over a mattress on the highway,
and decided not to worry -- and kept on driving.

It caught on the undercarriage of her Ford.

The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough
to tear a hole in the fuel tank.

The Subsequent Lack Of Fuel Is What Finally
Brought Her Vehicle To Its Knees..

She Had Still Managed To Drive 30 More Miles
With A 60-Pound Tangle of Stuff Wrapped Around Her Drive Shaft.

She Had it Towed To Her Ford Dealership And Complained
That The Vehicle Had A "Sort Of Shimmy"
When She Was Driving At High Speeds.


Below Are The Photos Of What They
Found At Her Ford Dealership....................

The Last Photo Is By Far The Best.

Is This Just The Best Or What?
They Still Can't Believe Their Eyes.
And Still Wondering How To Remove It!
