Size comparison with Sideshow Iron ManBefore I tell you who this statue will be, a bit of story on a funny afternoon.

On our way to the Mall of the Emirates this afternoon, I was driving peacefully at 100 kph in a 6 lane highway. Two lanes to my right was a hot red Ferrari sportscar also peacefully driving at the same speed.

I don't know about you, but all three of us were lined up so perfectly that I thought i was part of the challenge and that the logical thing to do was to floor the gas pedal immediately. The glory lasted less than 2 seconds and the bastards were gone from my sight in 10. I was left enduring a hysterically screaming angry wife the rest of the trip. Twas fun though....
