Russia markets in everything

AndrewG points us to the following:

A Russian armoured-car builder is boasting that its latest vehicle has seats covered with “whale-penis leather”.

That is not all:

The bulletproof windows are gold-plated, the exhaust is made of
tungsten, the gauges are encrusted with diamonds and rubies and the
exterior has a Kevlar coating.

The car also comes
with three bottles of the world’s most expensive Vodka, RussoBaltique,
although the website does warn prospective buyers not to drink and
drive.

It is supposed to be the world's most expensive…whatever it deserves to be called.  Here is more information.

The expensive equivalent of a T-shirt saying “I’m pathetic”? Wait, that T-shirt would be kinda cool. Ok, I got nothing.

I guess the builder really wanted people to think, “Now that’s a dick move!”

It is not only bullet-proof, it is “rocket-grenade-proof”. I wonder what it would take to penetrate this vehicle?

This is sick. Nouveau riche are killing off species and major reason for lots of biodiversity loss. Behavioural economists should come up with a smart plan to stop this madness. Something simple, like the very successful Australian anti-speeding campaign to stop the crazy drivers – “Speeding. No-one Thinks Big of You” (a.k.a fast drivers have small penis).
