Does anyone else think the purrin-as-pirate images look sort of like Maddox?

I have gotten the sh!tty end of the stick in every car purchase we have made since we got together. Before we were married, I was driving an RX-7. My next car was a Mazda B2200 pickup because our first house was a fixer and I spent every weekend doing runs to Home Depot. My wife's next car was a Nissan Maxima (5 speed SE version - that was a fun car), and I continued to drive the pick-up until the block cracked and the clutch was gone. Then she got a another Nissan Maxima SE (automatic, but still fun) and I got her old Maxima (which was now a wore out POS). Then she got an Infinity I30 (just like the Maxima, only with very nice leather seats), and I got her old Maxima (which was now a wore out POS - seeing a trend here?). Then she got a BMW 530 (great car), and I got her old Infinity (you guessed it - it was a wore out POS). The only reason I got the Hyundai was that the I30 had 185K miles and the transmission was shot and could no longer be trusted to do 130 miles a day.
Isn't it time for me to get a car *I* want?? Every car I have been handed has already lived a hard life of wife, kids & dog - and then I drove it into the ground and said a prayer over its dead rotting corpse.
But I'm not bitter...
Get that Renault mini-van then, you know, the one with the F1 engine. See what she says about that - and if it's too expensive, I'm sure Magick could pay to rent it for you for a weekend JUST FOR THE REACTION VIDEO LOLS and no other reason.
And yeah I hear what you're saying otherwise - I vote you get something outrageous like the TERRAFIRMINATOR and see what she says...and I mean as a rental, I think Hertz still rents H2s; just rent that for a weekend, bring it home like Friday night, and see what she does - and then tell her you flipped it doing 90 on the freeway on Monday and want something less ridiculous but still acceptable for your driving. Might or might not work...

I thought it was a joke when some of my friend started playing "Eye of the tiger" as we walked out of the house; little did I know, they were serious. I have no idea how this women is so close to weighing in at 3 bills. We had to cover somewhere around 15 miles in the 9 hours she sent shopping at the Mall of Dubai, the Wafi Mall, and Mall of the Emirates. If US soldiers could clear a room like the this women can clear a shoe store, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars would have be over in 3 months with 0 combat deaths. She racked up $127,000 bill without batting a eye.
As may coworker put it "that was my Ranger School...... and I went to Ranger School". I agreed.
I laughed, I cried, and then I laughed more.
