Life in the Fast Lane
Some Donald dude has been yanked as the official pace car driver in the 2011 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. I suppose the raceway folks are looking for a replacement. They need a skilled driver--fearless and sure-pawed at high speeds--with the looks to make the digital cameras flash like a thunderstorm.

Even though I would only be driving the pace lap at the beginning of the race, my deft handling of the powerful racing machine would undoubtedly dispirit the other drivers, who would then concede to moi, making me the winner of the event. So wave the checkered flag and drop the balloons, already! This race is already in my pocket, if I had any, of course.
Do they drop balloons in the winner's circle? They must drop something. Hey, I'm positive they have a HUGE container of MILK--maybe the winner's trophy filled to the brim?
Hey, You Big Dope! That's for DRINKING, Not Hair-Washing

I think I'm going to like this winner's circle stuff.
Ready to be a Pole-Sitter,
