Some People Have No Sense of Humor

Car and Driver caught some serious flack earlier today for an April Fools joke they posted on their website. And in an apparent effort to prove they were a bunch of pansy ass wusses, they apologized and took the story down.

According to their gag item, President Obama had ordered Chevrolet and Dodge to end their affiliation with NASCAR as a prerequisite for keeping their federal bailout money. The story caused an uproar among racing fans even though it was clearly marked as an April Fools' joke.

On the other hand, maybe the story wasn't that far-fetched. After all, when's the last you saw a black NASCAR fan?
