Redneck Trend: Pollution porn for anyone with a pickup

HOUSTON, TX – If you think “truck nuts” are in bad taste, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

With hesitation, we introduce the newest way rednecks are getting their knee-slapping laugh on.

“Rolling Coal” (Or “Hybrid Repellent” as its come to be known on the on-line) is essentially pollution porn for anyone with a pickup. Rolling Coal is the act of spraying a huge plume of exhaust smoke onto anyone within reach. Pedestrians, motorcycle riders, and especially anyone with a little tiny hybrid, or smart car makes a perfect target.

While filling someone’s lungs with a cloud of exhaust smoke may be funny to some, let’s not forget that stuff’s hazardous. Oh, and really bad for the environment, too! You may ask yourself why anyone would do such a thing.

Some rolling coal proponents say this is a way for truck-loving, gas-guzzling conservatives to protest agencies like the EPA, who are shoving clean-air down our throats (which is some circles is, apparently, seen as a bad thing.)

We ask, wouldn’t the only way to protest clean air be to stop breathing? Anyways, it’s the guys behind the gas pumps who are really getting the last laugh.
