The Hummer H8 website (NSFW due to profanity) is a parody* of all those 'manly-man' characteristics attributed to the brand's customer base like physical bravado, sexual prowess and the ability to eliminate the ozone layer in one fell swoop. It's also the perfect vehicle for the woman who can drive an entire soccer team to practice while applying make up, chatting on her cell and stradling two lanes on the highway.

Shirts with slogans like "I'm a full 3" with my H8" and the handout, "My Hummer H8 can kick your SUV's ass!" are available on the website.

*The alphanumeric "H8" is a well-know acronym for the word 'hate'.

      THIS is what the politically correct next Hummer should look like.

      nice idea, but the impact of the site is diluted a bit by the fact that ads for real hummers (placed by google) are festooned around the parody...

      Yeah right...
      The way hummers are changing an h8 will be the size of a shoe box, thats why I stick with an H1. And to spite popular belif, an H1 gets around 16 mpg cruising which is pretty good compared to some new SUV's that get around 10. The only diffrents is Diesel which is neing replaced with Biodeisel. In short HUMVEE's kick ass!

      Finally, someone willing to satirize the SUV! So very creative! I hadn't heard this idea about SUVs harming the environment before; I'll have to look into it.

      Also, it's brilliant of them to notice that the word Hummer is also a slang term for a sex act! This is the funniest and most insightful website of 1999.

      You can't sue if it's a parody...

      Of course, if you really hate Hummers you could click on a bunch of the links and not buy anything, thereby costing the advertisers a nickel a click or so.

      BAN SUVS! WE HATE HUMMERS! WE HATE SUVS! Click here for a quote on your next Hummer. When dealers compete, you win! - Ads by Goooooogle WE HATE HUMMERS! WE HATE SUVS! BAN SUVS!

      I'm all for parody. I'm even all for parody when its sole purpose is to generate ad clicks. But for the love of Hephaestus at least tailor your ads so they are in sync with the rest of the "content."

      I actually thought it was pretty damn funny that Hummer retailers are still paying to put their ads there... that is, assuming anyone's clicking through and charging them. I hope they are.

      I'm not a big fan of Hummer's "play soldier in your H2 while actual soldiers are dying in actual Humvees in Iraq" schtick. It's such blatant pandering to the insecure. That said, I think it's going a bit too far to single out the H3 as an automotive abomination (not that the H8 site is, but most people who share my dislike for Hummers do). It's no worse than a V8 Ford Explorer, except in terms of acceleration, handling, and interior space.

      the really funny thing is that hummer would actually SELL!
