So at first glance, when we got this, we said, JEEEEZUZ look how close that car is following the truck.  If the truck stops, the driver’s gonna get a mouthful of bumper.

Then, being prompted by a follow-up tweet, we see the REAL reason this is an AWESOME Jagoff catch.

WHATEVER it is that is being used to tow this car along I-70 near the Yukon Exit doesn’t look very safe!  But the sign on the back of the truck says, “Now Hiring Safe Drivers Owners and Operators.”

Hiring safe drivers?  Maybe there’s an upcoming opening, at GT Trans Inc, (who’s phone number just in case you want to call it is 855-488-0008), for when THIS DRIVER gets promoted to Chief Safety Officer for his INGENIOUS MacGyver-type towing thingy device. (Be nice if you DO call to tell them their driver’s now famous on our website.)

What do we say?  What in theeeeee world do we say on this one?

Here’s a plausible explanation, maybe the guy driving the car had a bunch of text messages to get caught up on and, at the last rest stop, without the truck driver knowing, he secretly hooked his car to the truck!!!  Maybe??

Hey “Safe Driver” not sure what you paid for the “towing kit” at Tractor Supply but we’re pretty sure it wouldn’t tow a Tonka Truck!!!  All we’re saying is, please hurry up and get out of our State before that yellow bungee cord, piece of clothes line, electrical extension cord, grandma’s knitting spool, piece of chewing gum, tobacco slobber line or WHATEVER that is attached to your bumper, snaps and sends that car all “Clark Griswald-ing” down I-70, Ya Jagoff!

Thanks to longtime Twitter follower Aaron Sworden for being our Jagoff Catcher today.

  1. to the person that made the Tractor supply comment..you are running your mouth about something you obviously know nothing about. The Bungee cord as you called it is rated strong enough to pick that car up off the ground. The trucker is being kind enough to help the out of a trouble to the nearest exit. i doubt you would have enough brains to know how to use the strap. Ya Jagoff

  2. Juat FYI I followed this guy for over 15 miles down I70 and eventually onto the limited access Pennsylvania Turnpike, so nope he was not just pulling the guy to the nearest exit, and the strap that was in use was the kind you would use for securing a static load with a metal hook and a ratchet… Even the best $50+ 2″
    wide 4×4 and equipment tow and recovery straps are only rated for single short duration pulls, not a long dynamic pull like the one associated with pulling a car 15-30 miles down the highway! plus if the truck slammed on its brakes this guy would go under the back end getting decapitated!
