News, but not the serious kind

Be as classy as a drug lord!

March 13, 2009

Quick quiz: Business is good, you have a lot of extra cash, so you use it to…

a) make a major donation to Doctors Without Borders

b) build a new homeless kitchen in your city

c) establish a scholarship fund for Katrina victims

d) cover your gun, your cellphone, your patio furniture and your grandma in gold and diamonds.

If you chose that last one, you may be a drug lord.

This museum in Mexico City shows what these clowns spend their money on after they’ve corrupted as many officials as possible and killed everybody they know.

What I don’t get is, where do you go for stuff like this? I checked at my local Tiffany, and they don’t sell gold guns, or even diamond-encrusted phones.

So for now, I’ve spray-painted my old Luger and stuck some rhinestones on the handle with Elmer’s, but frankly I don’t think it’s going to fool anybody. Crap, the paint is already coming off on my hand!
