Proof that Pixar should have hired me to draw Lightning McQueen

This is me standing next to the Lamborghini that I happened upon while in Philadelphia this past weekend. As you can see, I had my camera with me … which was fortuitous, as it allowed me to capture a fabulous photograph of this kick-ass automobile. And I had fully intended to show you that photograph. However, despite going out of my way last night to make sure that I would be able to access from my work computer today the photograph in question, the Internet has chosen to instead flip me the digital bird.

(I’m flipping the Internet the digital bird right back.)

(The Internet doesn’t care.)

(I’m doing it anyway.)

Now, you might be saying to yourself, “Jon, why on earth would you take a picture of someone else’s car?” And I get that … because, normally, I wouldn’t do any such thing. Unless, of course, the car was a Lamborghini, an earlier version of which I fell in love with at the tender age of 11 (thank you, “Cannonball Run“), and every version of which I’ve coveted madly ever since. And given the automobile’s roughly $300,000 price tag, I can say with great certainty that I wish I had instead fallen deeply in love with something more in my price range … like, you know, a roller skate.

So, let’s review: Not only can I not get my hands on an actual Lamborghini of my own … I can’t even get my hands on the picture I took of someone else’s Lamborghini.

This about sums up how my Monday is going.

    I totally get it. I covet a black Range Rover with a sound system that will put a crack in my driveway. But I’ll never get it. And I can’t even draw a picture of it.

    I am constantly flipping the bird at the Internet/my computer/other drivers/co-workers and none of them care either…..but I do it anyway. It makes me feel better.

        Don’t worry, I’ve been stressing on when to get my car detailed with the Groupon I purchased. These are real problems, you know.

    I’m guessing you didn’t draw fluid leaking out of the Lamborghini, because there wasn’t any.

    I have never had a Lamborghini, Porsche, Range Rover, or any other car make me laugh like reading you blog does. However, the time my father lost his false teeth while roller skating made me and my sisters seize up. Ha! (and true)
