— LauraW. Conspicuous consumption for the very, very wealthy.
The model used at the 2004 wedding of the Crown Prince of Brunei, Al-Muhtadee Billah Bolkiah, was modified to resemble a horse drawn carriage with solid gold decorations.
His family is reputed to own 500 Rolls-Royces - the world's biggest private collection. Meanwhile Nelly, the American rapper, had the interior of his Rolls-Royce redesigned in mink fur.
Eww. I bet that mink doesn't smell or feel so nice after a few parties.
--What? Too much? Be honest.
Anybody else want to take this baby out for a ripping good time through some mud and saplings? Can't imagine it handles quite as well with the weight of solid gold all over it, but I bet she can do OK. After all, that's still a Rolls Royce under there, somewhere.
Thanks to eddiebear.

Solid gold hubcap-blossoms flying off into the woods....the bride and groom shrieking as tree branches tear across their little tent back there...

Or as most Morons know it as, "Scissor Me Xerxes!"

But, can it be used for runnin' down hobos?
Oh...BTW...The answer is "yes"...Yes, Holmgren DID substitute the Girl Scouts, Western Division, for the regular team, in the game against the Falcons.

Aw Come on -it's just a matter of taste, more or less, and this is clearly on the less side of the equation!

Tends to get a bit matted from the puke and...other bodily fluids.

Maybe if your were super ghey cool like them, you'd be a level 72 night hobbit.
Me, personally, I loath WoW. Takes away from hetero activities, like playing Star Craft.

I'm reminded of automotive editor David E. Davis, Jr., visiting a West Texas rancher about 1980. The guy's idea of a good time was to pile into a Buick Electra 225 with drinks, a Q-beam spotlight, and a 20-gauge shotgun, and to go out harassing the jackrabbits.
I'm thinkin' the Sultan's car would yield a better vantage point.

That limo needs a big "TRUMP" plastered in the side.

See, that's what happens when you give power to a select few and outlaw ridicule. Hiring Liberace's uber-gay cousin to "do" the wedding didn't help either.
