Embarrassed Lincoln MKZ Concept Goes Up In Smoke In Detroit

I've done a horrible thing. Sometimes I forget my words have power. My words can hurt. I said a few critical things about the Lincoln MKZ Concept and now the damn thing set itself on fire.

This scene happened earlier today at the Detroit Auto Show when, for unexplained reasons, smoke began to emanate from the window like it was Ghostface Killah's tour bus.

We know the reasons. The MKZ decided it would be better off self-immolating than facing a future in the hands of Lincoln. It locked its doors and hoped, like the buddhist monks who set fire to themselves to protest government oppression, it would be reincarnated as a higher being.

Maybe a European Ford Ranger.
