Some time in December I walked out of my favorite pizza place in Provo and found the Law Firm Hummer of Death parked intimidatingly next to a pitifully undersized normal car. I don’t know if you’ll find this funny, but there on the back of the Hummer is the classic ambulance chaser pitch: “Injured? call 888-…” Several thoughts go through my head as I see this. The first is, why on earth does a law firm need a Hummer to conduct business?! One possibility is that by affixing an ad for the law firm to the Hummer, the over-sized intimidating gas hog of the highway becomes a tax write-off. Getting closer. But then it dawned on me. “Injured? Call Us. If we can’t help you legally, we will personally hunt down the perpetrator and make him suffer. Contact the Law Firm Hummer of Death for more information.”
[Legal disclaimer: I have deliberately obscured the law firm name, the contact phone number, and the license plate from the Law Firm Hummer of Death. Heaven knows I don’t want to see this vehicle in the rear view mirror of my Hyundai any time soon.]
One might also construe this as a taunt. Perhaps an evil derivative of “How’s my driving?”
“Oh, did I perchance injure you in that pitiful excuse for a vehicle? Why don’t you call us and see if your lawyers are any match for ours!” (evil laugh)
You had better be careful. It seems that the government agencies have determined a way to unobscure details hidden like this. You would not want this information falling into the wrong hands. You might get sued for not using an obstruction algorithm strong enough to avoid unobstruction.
Also, I hope the law firm or its number was not “Justice,” for you would not want to get jailed for obstruction of justice.

Yeah, I saw something similar in Vegas, only it was one of those new huge Internationals. I thought why on earth do you need that hog doing business?
