Hatchbacks For Humanity Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Hatchbacks for Humanity, a volunteer organization that builds bland and uninspiring cars for the less fortunate, celebrated its 10th anniversary at its headquarters yesterday with plenty of cake and Diet Squirt to go around.
“Our vision is a community in which everyone–regardless of their income or legal driving status–can own a mundane, underpowered hatchback with sticky brakes and lifeless steering,” Hatchbacks for Humanity President Paco Lumpkin told an attentive crowd of nine, all of whom appeared to be there just for the cake.

Mayor Kissie Canaveral was on hand to read a proclamation that included a seemingly endless litany of “whereas’s” before thankfully getting to the “thereby,” and christened a new bright red hatchback by smashing a bottle of Night Train Express against the car’s right front fender.
“We’re going to keep churning these things out until everyone has a hatchback,” vowed Lumpkin as Canaveral crouched on her hands and knees licking the wine that was dripping off the car.
