Million-Dollar Fender Bender
YAHOO ^ | 7/27/2011 | Marco R. della Cava

Nothing in Monte Carlo is understated, from the baubles to the yachts to the bank accounts. Now add traffic pile-ups to that list.

The Hope Diamond of fender benders unfolded yesterday in possibly the most conspicuous stretch of asphalt in the .75-square-mile principality — the round-about in front of the James Bond-worthy casino — when three blondes in a jelly-bean blue Bentley Azure ($363,000) scraped the rear of a white Mercedes-Benz S-Class (a paltry $91,000). And that was merely the appetizer

Served up for the main course were a hapless black Ferrari F430 ($186,000), which was hit nose-first by the 2.7-ton Bentley. Then, like two tankers mashing in the fog, a four-door Aston Martin Rapide ($228,000) crunched into the Azure’s passenger door. The cherry on this metal, plastic and carbon-fiber shattering souffle: a stray Porsche 911 ($77,000).

So, the total value of the cars involved approached a million dollars, but in reality, far, far less than a million dollars-worth of damage was done.

Ah but then the interlocked cars slowly toppled over the edge of a cliff into Monaco’s famous marina, where they landed on the 3 billion-dollar Gold-plated Cruiser we were all discussing last week.

Then the Bond theme started playing ...

Three blondes? How many million times did they say “Like oh my god” after immediately gluing a cellphone to their ear?

Easy dodge. Just get out of the Bentley and say “No English, no insurance”.

even minor repairs on high end cars are ridiculously expensive....though your correct, I doubt that there is million dollars in damage.

Or maybe - yeah, it was only a slight fender bender, but the blonde driver turned out to be the head of the IMF. The loss of her no-claims bonus is the last incremental straw of debt on the German taxpayer’s back and now we are all dooooomed.

Trust me, this apparently minor incident has ‘Archduke Ferdinand’ written all over it. In two weeks the world will be in flames!

I guess it’s a good thing there was not a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport $2,400,000) parked in front of the Ferrari...

Two alleged blondes and a brunette - although the brunette could be a blonde with a little help.

If this is the hairpin I’m thinking of, in front of the casino I’m thinking of, they can beat that total with a single-car incident in the GP of Monaco...

Dumb Blonde!
Dumb Dumb Dumb.

Management wishes to express that, contrary to the above posting, we not think all blondes are dumb, nor do we think all dumbs are blonde.

One of the comments in the comment section was priceless.

“guys it wasn’t her fault there was like totally a pine tree in the road and she swerved to miss it then there was like totally another pine tree and she swerved to miss that one too and when she hit the cars that damn pine tree was there again......then the air freshener fell off the rear view mirror”

Sheesh. Thus proving the point on not all dumbs being blonde - mine's brown with a tinge of grey.

okay, okay, I confess, grey with a tinge of brown.
