Great point about the wing! Sad thing is one million would have been a great deal I haven't seen one for under 1.8 yet.

A wonderful bird is the Pelican

who can hold more in his beak than his belly can

he can hold in his beak enough food for a week

and I'll be damned if I can see how the hell he can.

What's the difference between a bird and a man?

The bird can eat with his pecker.

Yeah but two male birds touching peckers isn't called a sword fight :p

.................wait until the insurance company :eek: tracks down who he was texting - 200 feet off the road in a salt marsh is a long way. Pelican - yeah, right. That puppy is low enough in the water for those 2 air intakes to have eaten a significant amount of salt water.

For another funny/sad accident, my California cousin knew a guy who, while driving his Porsche on the LA Freeway at rush hour, reached out to wipe the driver's rear view mirror and the buckle pin in his 18K gold Rolex popped and the watch disappeared under a hundred cars............

Looks like someone caught the crash on video. There is a suspicious lack of pelican (and some swearing, so watch the kiddies) in this video. (http://jalopnik.com/5404403/exclusive-video-of-bugatti-veyron-actually-crashing-into-texas-lake)

"Man what is that?"

"I'm pretty sure that's a Lambo dude"

And the idiot deserved it for worrying about a phone while piloting a $1.6 million dollar car.

I smell a quick insurance liquidation of an asset here! Bet his insurance company does too! Amazing how quickly cars in this price range depreciate in the "used" market in this economy.

Business owner buys a car that's too expensive, and when the business starts to tank because of the economy he tries to destroy his greatest asset for money to help his business.

I liked some of the comments on the video webpage:

"Yeah, there's a huge conspiracy going on between the Facebook video kids and the rich Veyron driver. Turns out, the kids are actually CIA moles working with the owner of the Veyron, a prominent Swedish mobster going by the name "Dietrich," in an attempt to bring down Jalopnik, because Ray Wert knows too much about the Kennedy assassination."


VEYRON GUY: "Yeah, so I'm down here in Galveston checking out real estate... and damn I gotta find about ten houses to flip right now or I'm not gonna be able to afford the next insurance payment on this Lambo - ERR... Veyron."
BUDDY ON PHONE: "Oh? Any luck?"
VEYRON GUY: "Hell naaa, the market's not as soft as I thought it would be... damn Texans - resiliant bastards, they are."
BUDDY: "Well, wh-t're y- g-nna do?"
VEYRON GUY: "What, my cell signal's breaking up?"
BUDDY: "I said what're you gonna do, then?"
V.G.: "Hell I dunno."
BUDDY: "Dude, just dump the Veyron - I told you the upkeep & insurance would kick your ass."
V.G.: "How can I dump it? I overpaid for it... I can't get out clean."
BUDDY: "Well, y- c-d alw-ys...gmph-gblcx"
V.G.: "WHAT?"
BUDDY: "I said you could always ...gmph-gblcx -strchhckcjhck. Ha-ha, ha."
V.G.: "Seriously I can't hear you..."
BUDDY: "I said: YOU CAN ALWAYS DRIVE IT INTO A LAKE & COLLECT THE INSURANCE MONEY, HAHAHA!"
V.G.: "Dude, let me try to change batteries on this phone, I think it's going dea.... WOOOOOAHH!!!"
(***kersplash***)
BUDDY: "WTF was that?"
V.G.: "Dude, I just drove into a freakin' lake!"
BUDDY: "Hey, I was just kidding."
V.G.: "No really, I just did!"
BUDDY: "Well, problem solved... make sure you leave the engine running."
