Today, Limousines are the perogative of the celebrity, schoolies formal clan, the crass, the cheap, the wannabes and the has-beens. The're the ostentation that good taste forbids and the wanky swank of those who have champagne tastes on beer budgets. They're the bling fling for rappers and knicker-less feast for the Papparazi.
The classic Lincoln, Mercedes or Cadillac have been replaced by the overly stretched the pink swank wank or the gold and stone encrusted. Sleek lines give way to that almighty pariah of the road - the stretch hummer . . more arse than class . . .
I hired a limousine once because at $50 an hour and able to take 8 of us from the airport to our holiday flat on the Gold Coast, it was cheaper than a taxi . . what's the world come to? A limo is cheaper than a taxi . . speaks volumes really. I wouldn't be caught dead in one. I have as much class as arse thank you! You know the word comes from the long cloaks worn by Limousin cattle herders . . now they herd cows of a different kind.
