Remember that time you asked your parents for something? Something really reasonable, like a castle or a dinosaur or a spaceship or a Lamborghini? It would have been so easy for your Mom or Dad to snap their fingers and — snap! — make it appear but noooooo, they didn’t do it. The injustice!
‘You Won’t Buy Me a Lamborghini?!’
A five-year-old boy in Utah asked his mother to buy him a Lamborghini. He just wasn’t satisfied with the family’s entirely sensible Dodge Journey. Mom said — brace yourself — “no.” But that five-year-old was not hearing it; he was not taking no for an answer. What to do?
As every kid in Utah knows, if you want a Lamborghini, you need to go to California. The Sunshine State (California) is only 770 miles from the Beehive State (Utah), a distance easily traveled by a five-year-old in a Dodge Journey in about 12 hours. So, off went our intrepid young Utahn.
A Life of Crime
In May 2020, the boy stole Mom’s Journey and headed west. Eventually (and by eventually, we mean three miles later), he was nabbed by the Utah Highway Patrol in Weber County. He’d made it onto the freeway but was swerving in the left lane so badly that a trooper thought he was impaired.
One of our Troopers in Weber Co. initiated a traffic stop on what he thought was an impaired driver. Turns out it was this young man, age 5, somehow made his way up onto the freeway in his parents’ car. Made it from 17th and Lincoln in Ogden down to the 25th St off-ramp SB I-15. pic.twitter.com/3aF1g22jRB

Thankfully, the story ended happily with the lad safely returned home. Having said that, he was probably greeted with a modest mixture of glee, relief, and fury from Mom and Dad.
As it turns out, that is not the end of the story.
Cruel and Unusual Punishment
Exactly what is the penalty for underage driving, automobile theft, driving without a license, and driving without insurance in Utah, anyway? Somehow, we think this young driver may have gotten off a little easy.
The day after our highway hero was nabbed by the Utah Highway Patrol, a man named Jeremy Neves paid him and his family a visit in Utah. Who, you may ask, is Jeremy Neves? He’s the owner of a matte black Lamborghini Huracan V10 supercar. He took our five-year-old car thief for a spin…in the passenger seat. What a thrill!
drive a Lambo himself! Presumably, that test drive won’t happen on the freeway.
Oh, one more thing. When our young Utahn driver was nabbed on the freeway, he had a grand total of $3 in his pockets, just $573,963 short of the MSRP of $573,966 for a 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster. No word on how he planned to make up the difference or whether he intended to “borrow” that car, too.
Hidden Photos Reveals The Secret Double Life Of Beloved Grandmother After She Dies
All his life, Johnny had treasured his musically-inclined grandmother, Teresa Leung. But as much as he thought he knew her through and through, there was one photo album of her past that remained strictly off-limits to him and the rest of his family. Upon her passing, these hidden photos at last came to light. And the scale of the unbelievable double life Johnny’s grandmother had once led was nothing short of electrifying.
Go Big Or Go Home! These Are The Top Party Schools In America
For the past several years, The Princeton Review has conducted an annual survey of the top party schools in the United States, which prompted a very important question: how can a bunch of Ivy League nerds accurately name the schools that party the hardest? While some of these schools are renowned for their academics in their own right, they’ve got a reputation of a wilder kind to maintain. Does your alma mater make the cut?
It’s Yoshi’s World And We Just Live In It
Cats are famous for claiming their owners' chairs, beds, desktops, boxes, and even sweaters laying on the floor for their very own selves. There is probably no cat more famous — or persistent — when it comes to claiming her chair from her rude human owner than five-year-old Yoshitsune. Yoshitsune — Yoshi to those she lets into her inner circle...
