OK, so you're wondering WHAT is so funny about this...
You might have to click the picture to see it full-sized to get what made me giggle so much. Perhaps a bit of back story would help. In all of Germany I bet there are 300 such trucks on the road, thus it is strange to see them at all. Let alone a Dodge Truck, normally they are Nissan. Then compound that with flat black paint (no shiny stuff). Heck, I can't even remember seeing flat black on ANY cars without counting 70's American muscle cars.
But what is so cute about this HUGE truck (something we don't see too much here in Germany) is the license plate. The "B" is seen on every car registered in Berlin, but the "IG" is just classic.
Oh, and the guy who slid out of this thing... he was all of about 5'2"(160 cm) tall, weighing 100 lbs (45 kg) and had a chip on his shoulder like he had something to prove.
(common sense says that if I have to explain the joke, it probably wasn't funny anyway... but DAMMIT, I giggled for half an hour... maybe it was a location joke... you know... you had to BE there)
And just because it is SOOO KEWL:
