Umm … wow. Alright, so what does this bad boy cost?

Price - £139,995.00

Alright, I live in America, which means that I don’t understand that fancy foreigner language. That and I’m fat and married to my cousin. Let’s see, over to Google to translate and … $209,642.513?! Well then I suppose I’ll just put that on my Christmas list, right next to Lindsay Lohan circa 2004, and a copy of Detective Comics #27 encased in a diamond poly bag.

Seriously, people buy this crap?
