My Other Car is a Diamond-Encrusted Mercedes...
Just opened up my email this morning to find a forwarded message about "Prince Waleed of Saudi Arabia's" diamond-covered Mercedes. Supposedly it is his 38th car. It cost $4.8 million and you can pay $1000 to touch it.
There was a little note at the bottom saying, "Remember this when gasoline costs $5.00 a gallon. You paid for this one." I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to mean. That I should stop driving so that Prince Waleed can't afford to buy a matching Mercedes covered with emeralds? That I should ruminate on this car when I am filling up my tank at the gas station and become insanely jealous?
