Jensenism
-noun
the somewhat flawed belief that a Birmingham factory in the 1970s could produce a proper muscle car. Instead what they produced was a porous steel-based pile of rust which would eventually drop its Chrysler V8 out of the car and onto the A44 just outside Chipping Norton, creating a tailback of Austin Cambridges, Wolseley Sixes, and three-wheeled invalid carriages.

"One should not believe everything one reads on the internet." ~ Abraham Lincoln.
"If you're making a political point wearing a balaclava, you're a c***. It was true for the IRA and it's true now." ~ daftbeaker.
