One of these days I'm going to invent a way for a muffler to make use out of bearings just so I never again have to hear that sarcastic phrase.

no, no, its all wrong, the thingamajig goes into the thingamabob first, then the muffler bearings are welded in place to the universal hinge connected to the drive shaft shock absorber......make sure the timing hose is clamped tightly to the fan spring because otherwise the car will overheat....

Don't forget to change the air filter in the tires. Can't have dirty air inside tires you know.

Also look out for leaking hydraulic fluid caps on the tail lights.

You say that but some loser is going to invent some, sell them on e-Bay and make a killing. I can already hear the selling points:

-Dirty air can degrade your tires from the inside causing a blow-out
-Prevent moisture from getting in your tires.
-Dust and grime can collect in your tires throwing your balance off

He is going to install some spent cigarette filters into valve stems and and charge you 19.95 for them. You watch.

Well better get back to work, trying to get quotes for a thousand valve stems.
