Was that a Lincoln we saw hauling deceased North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il's coffin? Indeed it was. As a matter of fact, the Communist funeral procession included
two three of the gas-guzzling Ford products.
Just to make sure we weren't seeing some crude third-world copy, we checked with an actual automotive expert. Bradford Wernle confirms our observation:
As mourners wailed hysterically by the road, a procession of unmistakable luxury limos rolled past. First came the Lincoln bearing Kim's flag-draped coffin on the roof. A second Lincoln limousine bore a giant poster with a likeness of the Dear Leader; and a third, an enormous funeral wreath.
The hearses bore Lincoln's unique vertical cross design on the hood, so the cars were not knockoffs.
