that is a disgusting display of vandalism, that's for sure. It reminds me of the little tiger tails Esso (remember back when Exxon used to be Esso?) used to give away at their gas stations.

Tom was close. This actually is a Mercedes option. Seems to be preferred by defense ministers in developing African nations. Allows them to look good in town and provides for a discrete retreat across the plains once they've looted the treasury or the present leader is, ahem, retired.

He must be getting a lot of tail with that thing..?
