Mazda Recalls 67,000 Cars Because of.....What?
News flash - the only thing officially not blamed in the auto industry for a recall is now literally the kitchen sink. Mazda is blaming Yellow Sac SPIDERS for the reason it's recalling 67,000 cars. The fear is the spiders could weave a web (who knew they did that) and cause a vent to get clogged potentially damaging a hose causing the car to miraculously burst into flames and potentially explode.
Seriously? I mean.... c'mon.....c'mon.... Seriously? This is all you've got? Apparently spiders represent a greater threat than Allstate's mayhem. What I want to know is what got Mazda tipped off to the fact that spiders could be causing internal hose problems. Was there a problem where a car blew up and some schmoe with a gun and a flapjack proclaimed "ahhhhh, the yellow sac spider did it in the den with the tire iron" or did a bored entemologist garner the interest of Mazda surfing the web one late night. Seriously... what makes a multi-billion dollar car company immediately get an "ah-ha moment" and point to spiders?
Seriously Mazda..... why even bother....Tomorrow morning when you start your car, be very afraid if you hear a faint "eeeeeeep" in the engine because you just might have incinerated "old 8 legs."
On another side note... how did the spiders get there anyways? Doesn't Mazda have better places to park their cars than highly populated Yellow sac spider breeding grounds or at least halfway maintain their plants to be rodent/insect free.

That is all.....
