Proof That Them Duke Boys Make Just About Everything In Life At Least 1% More Awesome

The driver--and brace yourself for a shocker--had been drinking.  But she still had her wits about her; according to the police report, she told the reporting officer that the car had been damaged when she was rear-ended, and that, quote, she "tried to get back into her car after it caught fire."

Oh yeah, that's why the 1% is only a minimum. Like if you're in a rocket-powered car in Monaco with Michael Buble fondling your leg, the Dukes horn isn't going to do much to improve on that. But add it to, say, a a tour of a greenhouse, and the awesomeness quotient shoots straight through the roof.
