A ginormous vehicle
This article in the LA Times is a fascinating look at the Warthog that 343 commissioned from marketing company Antenna. Stop by for behind-the-scenes details, a great photogallery, and the tantalizing tidbit that "buyers with deep pockets may even be able to take home a version of their own"... whoa. Thanks to BS Angel for highlighting this on Waypoint. (Louis Wu 20:32:13 UTC) (permalink)

Update: While you're there, check out the Master Chief (Midori, Jack Daniels, Jager) and the Master Chief Mojito (Bacardi and Mountain Dew). (Louis Wu 20:12:52 UTC) (permalink)
