DETROIT - A buyer has finally been found for the fledgling Hummer brand. Spokesperson Billiard Magneto said that after several days of back and forth deliberations, debates, and dinners, the Hummer has been unloaded.

Chinese representatives said that what really convinced them to buy the Hummer brand was when the head sales representative for Hummer Lucy Digglefitt informed them that the Hummer would average about 57 miles to the gallon.
When asked if she was sure. Ms. Digglefitt replied that he was pretty sure. She then stressed that the mileage may vary according to how fast one drives, the number of stops and starts, and if the vehicle is actually on.
