Stands to Reason II: "Apparently, President Lincoln was antislavery but pro-bondage." (Conan O'Brien)

We Expect Nothing Less: Rolls-Royce gave a sneak preview of its new Silver Shadow model, a hand-sculpted touring car that will retail for $300,000. "This car is so exclusive that its cup holder is an Englishman named Farnsworth." (Argus Hamilton)
