    everytime he sees a hummer or h2 he has to make sure to point them out.
    he's 7yrs old, and my sister and brother in law bought one a couple years back, gave my boy a cheezy r/c H2 and some kinda micro machine thing that comes packed up in a H2 looking carring case.

    he even gives them the thumbs up when they go buy(good thing for tinted windows)
    do i break his thumbs so he can't use them or what?

    any ideas would be helpful. :confused:

    this is an easy fix....

    My mother use to SMACK me on the leg every time she caught me not wearing my seat belt - this was in the late 80's/early90's when the whole "seatbelt revolution" was coming about....

    I look back and i am thankfull she beat the s*** out of me...hindsight is 20/20.....saved my life twice.... :)

    Thank God he isn't into cycling....

    Go wheelin' with a hummer and show him how pathetic they are. If you can find one with enough balls to wheel with you.

    Start the brainwashing earlier. My buddy's kid was learning the alphabet with a book that had pics for every letter:

    A is for "apple" that grows in the trees, B is for "bird" that floats on the breeze....
    For "J" it had a pic of a generic looking J**P.

    When his kid read the book to me, he would say "J is for Land Cruiser bouncing over the land."

    That joke works better when you imply the punchline.

    What's the difference between a porcupine and a Hummer?


    The porcupine has pricks on the outside. :D

    I started pointing out Land Cruisers to my kids on long drives even when I didn't have one. Always made a point of how big a POS and GM car was.


    Brainwashing be good.

    Your kid hasn't even started to piss you off yet.


    Mine is 15. Might not make it to 16. Hell, might not make it to August.

    My kid liked H2's until he saw that video that was all over the web of one breaking their steering. Try finding and showing the youth that.

    Now my kid wants a Samuri.

    I have a 6 year old that is already trying to test the waters of "what it takes to piss pops off"

    Does anyone know any good military schools?

    Mine is 2yrs old and all he mentions are Hondas. Dadda Honda civic, Dadda Honda Ridgeline. I can't seem to get the word Landcruiser or Toyota in there. A good cure for Hummer love is indoctirnate him with pictures of f'd up hummers like this one

    [​IMG]

    keep showing it to him and repeat, "You will hate this POS you will hate this POS"

    1. sneak in and break hummer.
    2. When he notices, explain to him that it's just like the real ones and doesn't hold up
    3. Get him one of these instead

    Disclaimer: This isn't mine, I just liked the picture which came from rccrawler.com

    a good end to an H2...

    keep an eye out this month or August on MTV for the show "Viva La Bam"... if any of ya a familiar with the show...then you know what I'm talking about... if not... this crew was the reason Jackass came to be... Locals near me...anywho... the ring leader (Bam)... launches his H2 off some Moto-x kickers... kills the truck!! lots of fun to watch... you'll see... just filmed here like a month and a half ago...so about time to air...

    Yes, so show him the H2 getting destroyed on TV, then search this forum for the "Indestructible Hilux" segment from that British TV show and see what impresses him more.

    Next time your family comes with the H2, don't be surprised if he says "Uncle, your truck sucks."

    It's funny, but it's a true story. I did s*** like that when I was kid. "Uncle Tom? You need to get a real car like a Porsche and get rid of your trailer park Maserati Firebird...." When I was 4 years old and said that to my uncle, my dad had this very sheepish grin on his face....

    I hate to say it, but I don't think it's the kid that's the issue, it's the bad parenting. How is it that you even let him be exposed to the Hummer in the first place? As soon as the toys were given as presents, you should have destroyed them on the spot. As for the uncle who bought one, haven't you ever heard of a family feud? You could have protected your child from these terrible influences, but noooo, you just let them in, didn't you?

    Young minds are very easy to shape, and if you don't spend the time doing it, someone else will. Time to pick up the slack, Jim, and help this boy out! Let's just hope it's not too late for the lad!

    AMEN to that.



    I like the alphabet deal, too.......


    "A" is for "A Cruiser"
    "B" is for "Badass Cruiser"
    "C" is for "Cool Cruiser"
    "D" is for "Dayum nice Cruiser"
    etc, etc
