Who knew an art car (made by two Canadians) made from a Mini Cooper (a British brand name made by a German company) covered in one million Swarovski crystals (a German-founded, Swiss-owned brand) housed at a Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum (in London) could be such an Amerigasm?

Apparently there's a part of the Toby Keith "Ford truck man" song we must have missed. It's a part of the song that must not have reached the commercials, where Keith pulls out a pocket protector and a tablet PC — and then says » 11/10/06 2:19pm 11/10/06 2:19pm
