There’s always something to howl about

“Pardon me sir, but have you seen the special on Grey Poupon at Wal Mart?”


UPDATE: Buy the T-Shirt at Cafe Press!

Yep, that’s a Rolls Royce Phantom (2008 MSRP $340,000) in the parking lot of the Newport RI Wal Mart captured with my phone on Saturday.

The headline is my best shot at a caption (YouTube has the old Grey Poupon commercial). What’s yours?

    I don’t have a quote, John. I am just so impressed that you *knew* it was a 2008 Phantom. 🙂

    Haha. Shouldn’t this owner of the rolls be having someone do his shopping for him, which would be a better return on his investment?

    Maybe they were inline to get new tires.

    You are SO RICH, why do you shop at Wal-Mart?

    How do you think I got to be SO RICH?
