I was driving my truck the three blocks to the harbor this morning, and I had to stop at a traffic light (There are four in three freaking blocks). Ahead of me was a new Lamborghini.
The heat pouring off the engine created light distortion in a ~160 degree arc. The nitwit driver roared off a whole block to the next red light, while I arrived seconds later- still in second gear. I realized the Lamborghini had never left first gear.
That is why, in my town we only see new Lamborghinis. (About the same story with the Maserati, but they seem to last at least a year or two longer). We locals call them "penis substitutes."
