National Geographic's "Ultimate Factory" series took its cameras to the Bentley plant in Crewe, to show how the wood-trimmed interior of the Mulsanne comes together through a combination of diligent craftsmen and robotic mills.

GreenN_Gold also showed off some fine craftsmanship, in a comment on the inanity of calling office equipment "the Dale Earnhardt of shredders:"

I recently purchased the Billy Ray Cyrus of Camaros, but it had the Abe Vigoda of engines, the Joan Rivers of body work, the Bruce Willis of tires, the Michael J. Fox of suspensions, the Nicole Richie of frames, and the Michael Jackson of batteries.

It turned out to be the Bernie Madoff of investments.
