World’s Most Indestructible Limo Breaks Down, Again

In an incident symbolic of America’s decline, President Obama’s limo — nicknamed the Beast because of its supposed indestructibility — broke down in Jerusalem earlier today after some very smart person (an American, according to an Israeli news station) mistakenly filled it up with regular gasoline instead of diesel. (Many reports have this reversed, but the Beast runs on diesel, so filling it with diesel would, you know, not be an issue.) Luckily, Obama wasn’t in the vehicle at the time, and a backup was brought in from Jordan, so it wasn’t really a big deal. But it’s not great that we’re getting used to this sort of thing
