    Mercedes/Motorola prototype Gullwing door fail.

    They're a lot better since Mercedes decided to produce the product on their own. ;)

    Ring ring ring goes the telephone
    The lights are on but there's no-one home
    Tick tick tock it's a quarter to two
    And I'm done
    I'm hanging up on you

    Indeed - did your invitation to the ceremony not arrive? :dk: Sorry, I sometimes keep odd hours...

    But, I'm pleased to announce we have a result.

    I liked the various contributions that played on size - particularly tpwuk's "'Oh Bo||ocks,' said Gulliver. He was always dropping his mobile." and corned's "I always said that Dom Joly didn't deserve a driving licence." - and would probably have gone for something along those lines myself had I participated.

    Notable mentions go to ringway's "Mercedes/Motorola prototype Gullwing door fail." and trapperjohn's "Does this mean we are officially 'engaged'."

    The runner-up is tiff's "Mercedes Mobilo. Piece of mind should the unthinkable happen.", which may also have included an unintentional pun. ;)

    But without further ado, the winner for its resigned succinctness is EDZ649's: "The flip side of Mercedes ownership..."

    EDZ649 - the mantle is yours!
