The All Silver Rolls Royce: Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Welcome to the 1st winner of our Darwin Awards: Recession Edition:
The only way this could get better is if the owner of dies of starvation, since then we could give them a true Darwin award. Somebody staying at the Westin in Dubai decided "Why take the jet? I just got this sweet new Rolls Royce dipped in silver." And off they went.

Hey, if you've never had to succeed for your money, and you've never seen a downturn, why would getting a sterling silver Rolls Royce be a bad idea? I, for one, have my fingers crossed that somebody gets blinded by the reflection off of this car and accidentilly swerves into it on a sideroad somewhere. I doubt there are many car body shops in Dubai that can fix this guy.

In the meantime, we'll keep our eye out for more winners - I suspect it's going to be a long awards season :)

Keep your eyes open - there's got to be a gold-plated one out there somewhere.

I couldn't resist photographing that monstrosity too. Abu Dhabi plates and the doorman said it belonged to a VVVIP.
