Magicians Penn and Teller have a series on Showtime called "Bullsh*t!" in which they debunk myths. Last night they reran an episode about alternative medicine. Penn (the tall, loud one) sat at the wheel of a red and black MC
while Teller (the short, silent one) tapped with a hammer on one of the tires. Penn did a spiel about reflexology and explained that Teller was changing the spark plugs.
I went to the P&T fan board and asked if it were Penn's car. The moderator, who knows the guys, said that it was. Doesn't surprise me. He has an offbeat sense of style, and I'm sure the MINI appealed to him on that basis. Penn is 6'5", so I'm glad he tried one on for size and found that it fit.
