    1334674800

    There's an old newspaper adage that dictates: "Dog bites man" is not news. "Man bites dog," now that's news. In other words, the subversion of the usual order of things is what sells papers.

    Well well well, what have we hear? Looks to us like a Lamborghini Aventador prototype wearing the wheels from a Bugatti Veyron.
