Man Buries His $500K Bentley to drive In afterlife

count1

A RICH businessman has decided to bury his £310,000 Bentley in his back yard so he can drive it in the afterlife.…

The Brazilian entrepreneur, known as Count Scarpa, surprised many after revealing he was going through with the bizarre ritual in Sao Paulo in order to mimic the pharaohs of Egypt who took their riches with them when they died.

‘I decided to do as the pharaohs: this week I will bury my favourite car, the Bentley here in the home garden! Bury my treasure in my palace rssss !!!’, the enigmatic 62-year-old wrote on his Facebook page.

But he now claims he was actually trying to bring to attention the problem of people not donating their organs.

He later wrote on the social network: ‘I buried my car, but everyone thought it was absurd when I said I was going to do that.

‘Absurd is bury their organs, which could save many lives. Nothing is more valuable. Be a donor, tell your family.’

  1. This bloke’s obviously an example of the work of the Intelligent Designer.
    ….mind you, a Bentley would stick it right up Billy Graham in his scungy yellow Cadillac, when they’re driving down the gold-paved streets for (or parked in god’s driveway during ) their regular orgies with god. —>

    “…… Graham was ebulliently specific about the world to come. Heaven, he said, was a place “as real as Los Angeles, London, Algiers or Boston.” It was “1,600 miles long, 1,600 miles wide and 1,600 miles high.” Once there, “we are going to sit around the fireplace and have parties, and the angels will wait on us, and we’ll drive down the golden streets in a yellow Cadillac convertible.”

    • Interesting,

      Talking of ‘Heaven’, I recall a visiting preacher at a local Presbyterian Church meeting I was invited to a few years back here. He was seriously informing the assembly present that the following is the sort of experience one will have in the Christian after-world.

      You will see a figure coming towards you; and as he gets closer, you will recognize that it is Jesus. You will sink to your knees; but when he reaches you, he will stretch out his hands and lift you up and then embrace you in his arms. (Presumably one must have been ‘walking’ around in this Heaven.)

      I’m curious to know if that is a scenario that would make sense to the Christians on this blog. Or is it a rather too romanticised and materialised an image to be generally accepted? I must say that in just about any other context other than an actual Church meeting, I could not have taken him as speaking seriousy.

      Coming back to the Billy Graham images quoted above… (And if you will pardon an awful bit of word play here.) Is it to be taken from his quote that he might expect to be re-inCARnated in Heaven?

      Rian.
