Mercedes-Benz corkscrew

A friend sent me this Mercedes-Benz corkscrew. When not in functional use it might double as hanging-from-the-rearview-mirror crucifex.

Opps...I guess it doesn't qualify as a crucifix as there is no one on it.

Many Thais hang dolls from their bumber....to keep away spirits who have 'inherited' people who have been killed in road accidensts on the road... it is to keep the ghosts happy.

This is very similar to the Christian belief that Saint Chistopher medals will keep them safe while driving.

I go for airbags!
