I usually give ***** a wide berth and sure wouldn't put my finger in one; and I haven't seen teenaged years in many, MANY moons.[8D]

Ashlee Simpson (sister of Jessica Simpson) on the MTV bulletin board :

"I don't know what I'm going to get in the VMA basket. But I really wanted a Mercedes-Benz G-Class [SUV], so I bought one yesterday. Maybe one will be in there. That would be the most ridiculous thing I could think of."

Just how big does Ashlee think the VMA gift basket is? There's no luxury SUV being given away this year, but hopefully she'll be satisfied cruising around on another set of wheels: a $200 skateboard from Zoo York. And she can pilot her board while wearing her complimentary pair of Lady Lanell's Swarovski Crystal sandals ($150).

More of the same : The New York Post reported that a Mercedes G-Wagon sport utility vehicle taken by hotel heiress Paris Hilton during Sundance was not returned on the day it was promised.

According to the Post, Mercedes “sent out search parties� and finally got the SUV back the following day.

Mercedes spokesman Geno Effler didn’t confirm or deny the report but said such problems are “incredibly rare.�

Some vehicle loans bring unexpected results.

Did you know that MB does not own 99% of the dealers in the USA? This is a dealer decision, not MB. I'm not saying the situation is ideal, but find another dealer. My dealer gives me a C or ML everytime, I didn't even buy my G from them.

This one's from Frisco :

Taking the kids to school this morning, I caught a glimpse of Robin Williams (a fellow Convent parent) heading south on Fillmore after dropping off his son. Anyone who was paying attention couldn't miss him in his schnazzy, black Mercedes G-Class SUV.

On the Mercedes site, they tout this vehicle as one that offers "Classic Lines & Rock Star Status." Well, I've always thought Robin looked like Bono.

that highlights the work of the dramatic and documentary filmmakers.

According to Dave Schembri, vice president of marketing for MBUSA,
"Mercedes-Benz is very proud to be continuing its partnership with the
Sundance Film Festival as a presenting sponsor of this premiere cultural
event," said Dave Schembri, vice president of marketing for MBUSA. "Our
alliance with the Sundance Film Festival provides us with a platform to a
reach new people through various lifestyle events such as this. We are
pleased to play a part in enabling the very best in creativity, innovation,
aspiration and accomplishment."
As part of the its support of the Festival, MBUSA also provides a fleet of
its popular M-Class sport utility vehicles and its versatile E320 4MATIC
wagons and sedans to transport filmmakers, celebrities and other VIPs to and
from Festival events. Joining the lineup in 2002 is the new G-Class sport
utility vehicle, which will make its debut at the Festival as part of this
esteemed transportation fleet.
Throughout the week a handful of celebrities will be test driving the
G500, a V8-powered high-end luxury SUV. Celebrities such as Ray Liotta, Andie
MacDowell, Benicio Del Toro, Patricia Arquette, John Corbett, Kyle MacLachlan,
Andy Garcia and John Leguizamo have been transversing the snow-covered roads
of Park City in this rugged, yet luxurious sport utility vehicle.
In addition, the 2001 M-Class, Mercedes' top-selling sport-utility
vehicle, has a starring role in two Sundance Premiere films: "The Man From
Elysian Fields," which is a fanciful tale of a struggling novelist (Andy
Garcia) who, in desperation, takes work at an escort service run by an elegant
hustler (Mick Jagger) and becomes involved in the lives of a legendary writer
(James Coburn) and his beautiful young wife (Olivia Williams); and "One Hour
Photo," starring Robin Williams, who plays a photo developer that becomes
obsessed with a suburban family whose film he has developed through the years.

Carrot Top is a very bad comedian. There is a running joke in the U.S., that no woman would have sex with him becasue he is so unattractive and has hair like Bozo the Clown.

Funny, the G used to be owned by A-list celeb's like Brad Pitt, now it is owned by Ashley Simpson and Carrot Top ... [xx(]
