Коллега продает машину

Есть у нас в соседнем отделе темнокожий парень просто огромных размеров. Когда он проходит через двери - он заполняет собой весь проем, при том что высота проема здесь больше, чем стандартные европейские 2 метра. Упитан он тоже неплохо - так что в ширину он как раз помещается в 90-сантиметровый проход, если будет идти боком, то еще место и для меня останется.

Пару дней назад ходил раздавал объявления о продаже машины. И хотя стиль и смысл объявления немного спорные, в целом оно может служить иммигрантам примером, как надо владеть языком, чтобы быть на одном уровне с местными канадцами. Эдакий разлив мыслью по древу :)
(орфография сохранена).

OK, let me start off by saying this Impreza is only available for purchase by the manliest of men (or women). My friend, if it was possible for a vehicle to sprout chest hair and a five o'clock shadow, this Subaru would look like Tom Selleck. It is just that manly.

It was never intended to drive to the mall so you can pick up this adorable shirt at Abercrombie & Fitch that you had your eye on. It wasn't meant to transport you to yoga class or Bed Bath and Beyond. No, that's what your Prius  is for. If that's the kind of car you're looking for, then just do us all a favor and stop reading right now. This car has been to hell and back, twice, and has the scars to prove it. So if you can't handle being seen behind the wheel of this biblical, fire breathing, dragon slaying, nazi killing hero because it has a few purle hearts, move on.

This wagon was engineered by 3rd degree ninja pirate super-warriors in the highest mountains of Japan to serve the needs of the man that cheats death on a daily basis. They didn't even consider superfluous nancy boy amenities like navigation systems (real men don't get lost), heated leather seats (a real man doesn't let anything warm his butt), or On Star (real men don't even know what On Star is).

No, this brute comes with the things us testosterone-fueled super action junkies need. It has 137 HP engine to outrun the cops and a 5 speed transmission so you know grandma wont be taking off with it when your not looking. It's saved my bacon more than once. It's got special blood/gore resistant upholstery. It even has a first-aid kit in the back. You  know what the first aid kit has in it? A pint of whiskey, a stitch-your-wound kit and a hunk of leather to bite down on when you're operating on yourself.

My price on this bad boy is an incredibly low $2500 but I'll entertain reasonable offers. And by reasonable, I mean don't walk up and tell me you'll give me $500 for it. That's liable to earn you a Burmese-roundhouse-sphincter-kick with a follow up three fingered eye-jab. Would it hurt? Hell yeah. Let's just say you won't be the prettiest guy at the Coldplay concert anymore.

There's only 183 000 km's on this all-wheel drive hellcat from Planet Kickass. Trust me, it will outlive you and the offspring that will carry your name. It will live on as a monument to your machismo.

Now, go look in the mirror and tell me what you see. If it's a rugged, no holds barred, super brute he-man mucho Chuck Norris stunt double, then reply to this ad.  I might be out hang-gliding or BASE jumping or just chilling with my lady, but leave a message and I'll get back to you. And when I do, we'll talk about a price over a nice glass of Schmidt while we listen to Johnny Cash.

To sweeten the deal a little, I'll throw in a second set of 17" summer rims so you can impress all your friend with their honda civics. This car has no problems what so ever. It passed its last e-test and safety with flying colours but is being sold as-is.

God bless

Ух ти, ну реально прикольно! Це, мабуть найродзинкуватіший текст який я читав за останній час.
І правду ти кажеш - чергове підтвердження, що ESL - це конкретний бар'єр.

Не то, чтобы это был непреодолимый барьер.
У нас тут приятельница есть - 7 лет живет в Торонто. Ей уже бывает проще по-английски говорить. Пишет тоже с выкрутасами, если нужно. Особенно во всяких там кавер-леттерах.

Но у нее муж канадец, ну и работает не с русскими :)

Вот это полет мысли!!! Он не маркетологом случайно работает? Так классно подобрал имидж такой старенькой и судя по всему побитенькой машинке :)

Нет, он в каком-то саппорте.
