Euro Trashing

So, some European guy creates a car rally from London to Athens, with cars powered by freedom fry oil. He calls it the "Grease to Greece." (So clever!)
"I think we can safely say that this is the first long-distance car journey in Europe that has relied on restaurants and burger bars as an informal network of filling stations," he told the fawning Euro-media. (Clearly, he was inspired by the Greasy Rider mania raging here across the pond.) But let's get something straight: those cars only went 2,500 miles! (For all of you overseas and Canadian readers, I think that works out to be 1,293,274,249,342,800 kilometers.) Iggy and I drove 3,900 miles across THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on our adventure, way before your car rally. Dude, talk about a day late and a franc short.
