Default White Van Man

Alright, who is the perpetrator?

Someone mentioned “White Van Man” and I looked it up.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_van_man
But there is also a sitcom on YouTube. Now I’m most of the way through Season!

I believe it’s a Transit, but series (about a 2nd generation handyman in an English village) is too funny.

Turns out there was an attempt to make a US version.

We have enjoyed watching the Canadian sitcom "Schitt's Creek" starring Eugene Levy:

Schitt's Creek is awesome. Great dysfunctional family comedy.

Yeah, and Eugene Levy is one of those guys that everything he does is funny. His deadpan delivery just makes it funnier. I always thought Chris Elliott was funny, but he is tremendously overshadowed by Eugene Levy in this series.

I also like a lot of the other characters and their relationships. I especially like Emily Hampshire's role as Stevie Budd. Her character's sarcasm really strikes a chord with me.

Back to the subject of 'white vans' that is why I painted my arctic white van another color(s) Plus I thought it wise to repaint it while the original paint was in reasonably good shape.

You could've (or did) fool me. The Wikipedia thing in post 1 was about white vans.

Somehow I am not embarrassed to not know that, ha! I enjoy your motorcycling posts, I still own my '81 BMW R80G/S. Have close to 300K miles riding since 1955. Never raced.
