little help here

March 24th, 2009 | 13 Comments

I’m asking for a favor with this post. I would like to know if anyone can think of a kind of truck that begins with the letters K, Q or N. For instance, a Firetruck would be a letter F, a Moving truck is M, Elephant truck would be E. You get the idea. I need K, Q and N trucks. This can be a type of truck, like Pick-up truck. Or it can be what the truck transports, like Milk.
Just leave your idea in the comments. Much appreciated. You shall be thanked heartily.

    Noisy truck (like a rusty, old one that’s backfiring)?

    King cab truck?

  2. Hey, Brian! Great sketch!

    A Kei Truck is a small Japanese pickup truck ( Or maybe a Kite Truck that transports kites? Or a Knife Truck that has different things coming out of it like a Swiss Army Knife?

    How about a ‘Quick Fix Truck’ (like for a repair shop), a Quack-up truck of full of ducks (a Quack-up Duck Truck), or a Quick Sand Truck (maybe that spilled all it’s contents to the road and now it’s sinking?).

    And maybe a Noodle Truck, a Ninja Transport Truck, a Naked Truck (not sure what that’ll deliver), or a Numbers truck.

    That’s all I got for now. Looking forward to see what this is for!

    Newspaper truck. Nougat truck (a tanker truck). Quicksilver (also a tanker). Quarter-ton pickup (doesn’t actually exist as far as I can tell, but maybe a tiny pickup would be funny). Ketchup truck (again, tanker). Kerosene. Kiwi. That’s all I have right now.

  4. Sarah R says:

    Nitrogen truck (tanker). Nut truck…okay, there probably aren’t trucks that only deliver nuts but it’s fun to say…..and perhaps it delivers lunatics.

    A truck full of ducks could be a quacker truck. I think you’d want that near your milk truck.

    A questionable truck. Is it a truck or isn’t it? (One of those weird half-truck, half-car thingies.)

    King-cab truck?

  5. brian says:

    Adam’s Newspaper Truck takes the ‘N’ category. So we can focus on K and Q now. Ketchup is pretty good. “Quarter-ton” is pretty oblique for the audience. Hmm.

  6. Joe says:

    When does the illustration come out? Will there still be newspapers by then?

  7. brian says:

    It will make it “classic.” Kids will run up to their parents and ask “what’s a ‘Newspaper?'” and parents will sit the kids down on their flying chair and say “back in the day, before we were all robots…”
    And warmth will reign.

  8. Adam says:

    A quarry truck? You know…a truck that carries stuff away from a quarry?

    A really quaint truck? With like, drapes and shit?

    A Quebecois truck?

    Kamikaze truck?

    A truck that’s kaput?

    A kennel truck, full of dogs?

    A kidnapper’s truck? Like, an unmarked white van?

    A knife-sharperner?

    Kosher hot dogs?

    Yes, I’m just skimming through the dictionary now.
