Street scene

How do
you interpret this photograph?


  1. I'm guessing that to be a roughly 1995 BMW E36, Bluebook value not a cent north of $5000.

    With that information, how do you interpret that photograph?

  2. It doesn't change anything, since I asked because I don't know how to interpret it.

    I also asked the question on Facebook. Answers were split between shameless/"jacking the system" (although I noted it was not in a restricted space) and shmiles.

    A woman who said it was shmiles said she knows the driver.

    But I don't know what shmiles means.

  3. It doesn't change anything, since I asked because I don't know how to interpret it.

    Given how much bunking you do here, and the implied pejorative (since you omitted "I don't know how to interpret it") is that you were going for the elitists who need to be shamed angle.

    So I assumed that, since this is Restating the Obvious, that you triggered on BMW, and had no earthly idea that what you were looking at was, in fact, a very cheap car.

    After all, why are you asking the question in the first place?

  4. Because of the handicapped placard.

  5. Oh, that thing that didn't jump right out of the picture, and that thing that is irrelevant to where the car is parked?

    One way to interpret that picture is that whoever the shameless person driving is, they didn't take advantage of the handicapped placard, which means they may be shameless, but they are honest.

    Contains all the facts, but I doubt that is where you are going with this.

  6. I find 'shmiles' unpersuasive but it's possible.

    The owner paid $20 to communicate something, but what?

    I am not going anywhere. I can get as far as 'shameless,' then I'm stuck
