    Recent EU regulations may mean that all new cars sold in Europe now look like krill-grazing whales, but at least the approved curvy shapes give any pedestrian coming into contact with the front of the vehicle merely a comprehensive selection of bruises and fractured bones, rather than the spectacular evisceration that one of these strategically-located hood ornaments could cause.

    I noticed that Jaguars in the U.S. still tend to have the meathook-like prancing Jaguar on their hoods, as opposed to a rather more epidermis-friendly button badge supplied on Euro-versions of the same car.

    Let’s not voluntarily equip our vehicles with butchery equipment ok?

    relax, they all will be stolen in the first five minutes

    I think I’d be worried about these getting stolen if they were installed on a car. (Unless, of course, you have one of those Rolls-Royce style pop-up hood ornament mounts.)

    I agree about the meathook aspect.

    However, I am inspired to seek out the most overwrought ornament I can find for at least one of my bicycles…
