Car for sale

For Sale: Batmobile
One of the four original Batmobiles will be auctioned off this February in London. I can't believe it's expected to sell for only $150,000.


Scenario: Civil war breaks out in parts of the Middle East and things look pretty hopeless. Suddenly, the Batmobile busts in, with its cigarette lighter jet engine and sweet tail fins. POW, BAM, ZAP! Everything is better.


I beg of you, richer-than-me people: someone good and just must purchase this super vehicle. If it were to fall into the wrong hands...we would be doomed. What is $150,000 when weighed against world peace?
