Try as they might, The Onion got the typical stonewall response from GM, Ford, and Toyota when pressing the automakers about their flying car programs. All these companies do is deny, deny, deny. Even when the Onion called them out, pointing to their secret labs where engineers fly around gleefully like Charlie Bucket and his grandfather all hopped up on hotrod soda, flat denial was the order of the day. We can expect these programs to be pushed further underground, now that their cover was nearly blown by The Onion, so we'll have to deal with more talk of hybrids and wheel motors instead of airspeed and tailrotors. Please note: The Onion is pure satire. Usually screamingly hilarious. Satire doesn't tend to work unless the presentation is dry. They really aren't serious.

      So according to that picture, GM is still asleep? When will they wake up?

      OK, I know many of you are going to say GM is dead.

      Toyota looks very uncomfortable as if something has been shoved up his ass... recall notice could it be?

      Ford running its mouth as always... Blah blah blah...

      Very Funny. Could've been even funnier if they had spliced together interviews with real auto execs (Lutz, Wagoner, Mulally, etc.) to make it appear that they were responding to questions about flying cars.

      "I do not have a secret lab."

      Instant classic.
