The Dude and his Car
« on: April 10, 2013, 02:02:22 PM »
Dudes,

Many of you probably know the story of the Taoist farmer.  It's fabulous stuff, man.  So, I got to thinking:  shouldn't we Dudeists have our own parable concerning the Dude's ability to weather the vicissitudes of everyday life?  I present to you:



The Dude and His Car

One day, the Dude’s car was stolen (AND the briefcase) while parked in the handicapped spot.  Brandt consoled the Dude, saying, “This is some terrible news.”

The Dude replied, “Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.”
And Walter said, “Aww, fuck it, Dude, let’s go bowling.”

The next day, the Dude’s car (and the Creedence) was found, smelling of a vagrant, but with a clue to the whereabouts of the money.  Walter congratulated the Dude, saying “Our fucking troubles are over, Dude.”

The Dude replied, “Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.”
And Walter, seeing the Dude's point, said, “Aww, fuck it, Dude, let’s go bowling.”

That night, the Dude, Walter, and Donny pursued the clue, which took them to Little Larry, the brat.  The mang next door took a crowbar to the Dude’s car, breaking several windows, headlights, and denting its rust-colorated exterior in several places.  Brandt consoled the Dude saying, “This is some terrible news.”

The Dude replied, “Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.”
And Walter said, “Aww, fuck it, Dude, let’s go bowling.”

A little later, Bunny returned to The Big Lebowski after visiting friends of hers in Palm Springs.  The Dude and his Johnson were temporarily off the hook.  And the Dude’s car, ever faithful, was parked at the bowling alley. Jesus and Quintana were still assholes, but all things considered, life was looking up.  Walter congratulated the Dude, saying “Our fucking troubles are over, Dude.”

The Dude replied, “Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.”
And Walter, seeing the Dude's point said, “Aww, fuck it, Dude, let’s go bowling.”

A few minutes later, the Dude, Walter, and Donny left the bowling alley, only to find Nihilists awaiting them in the parking lot.  They finally did it.  They finally killed the car; it stood burning in the background.  A brouhaha ensued.  One Nihilist (was it the one with the nine-toed woman?) lost his ear, and Donny died of a heart attack.  Brandt consoled the Dude saying, “This is some terrible news.”

The Dude replied, “Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.”
And Walter said, “Aww, fuck it, Dude, let’s go bowling.”

The breeze in the courtyard departs and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can keep us from celebrating?

Excellent idea for a Dudespaper article. Don't suppose you have a version without all the weird characters in place of quotation marks? If so, please send to the email listed at www.dudeism.com/contact.
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...

Thanks, Dudes.  Sorry about the weird quotation thing -- it looks normal on my computer.

Forumdude, I sent something your way.

I smile when I see that car because my high school senior godson has one almost like it and doesn't get what I see so funny about it.
