Moonalice poster by Christopher Peterson
According to Moonalice legend, there is a wee bit of tension between Volkswagen and the owners of clean diesel vehicles made by Volkswagen. It seems that Volkswagen installed a bit of software that made the engine run really clean – but very slowly – when regulators drove one, but turned it into a high performance pollution factory when driven by a civilian. Everything about this story is awful. First, 11 million cars are affected. Second, the fix will basically give the cars the performance characteristics of a baby stroller. And finally, everyone has another big reason not to trust large companies. The Moonalice tribe would like to offer a modest proposal: we’d like Volkswagen to give all 11 million owners a pound of weed from this year’s harvest … that way no one will mind a car that only goes 40 miles per hour. And as depicted in today’s poster by our new artist Christopher Peterson, VW should also give everyone a fancy new hood ornament that lets everyone know … “be nice to the driver of this car, he or she has a pound of weed!”
