Pimp My Rolls
— 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.

1 I havr the immense satisfaction of knowing how tacky that is and that I would never own such a monstrosity, even if it were in my budget.

2 Seriously, I can see myself grinning from ear-to-ear and doing stream crossings in that thing.

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

What?

3 Is Brunei an outpost of Puerto Rico?

Reminds me of South Park's D-Yikes episode with Xerxes.


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

Yes


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!

Their geek-fu/crazy-fu is strong.

10 Sorry for going OT.

11 I would flat-out refuse to get in that car. It's ridiculously hideous & gaudy. Like what Honey said about white limousines in Cecil B. Demented, "What do I look like, Liberace’s boyfriend?!”"

Nom,


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.

13 But when you have that much money, does it matter what other people think of you?

14 Pffft. Show it to me in Platinum and then we'll talk.

15 At a convention for visiting potentates held in Miami Beach the Crown Prince was asked about his income.
His reply?
"I'm comfortable."

16 What's that get? About 30feet to the gallon?

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.

18 I wonder if you could get one converted into a pick-up truck and painted electric blue.  Name it Miss Agnes, of course.

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

20 Why not just paint, "I have a very, very small penis," on the side of your car?

21 The hub caps may be a little much; but only a little.

Nom,


Well, I couldn't let that pass. Too funny.

XOXOXOX

24 What a coincidence - my car looks just like that.

Except that the wheels are different.

25 A little club soda will take that right out.

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.

27 I wish I could've rolled that to my prom.

28 I'd like to be the sales guy on that one. Undercoat in diamonds to protect your investment Sultan? Pop up hooker dispenser? Frickin laser beams? Sir your taste is excellent!

29 How many do you recon AL GORE and JOHN EDWARDS has in their garages how many do you recon the liberal hollywood eco-wacko tree huggers ride to in their awards shows in?
