This qualifies for more than an “OOPS!”

On Wednesday, a man drove a Bugatti Veyron into a lagoon in Texas after avoiding a low-flying pelican.

According to The Galveston County Daily News, the driver was checking out real estate in La Marque, Tex., when the pelican swooped into view:

The man jerked the wheel, dropped his cellphone and the car’s front tire left the frontage road and entered a muddy patch, which foiled his attempt to maneuver away from the lagoon…

The man was uninjured, physically, though after drowning the Veyron, which is priced at around $2 million, his ego might be a little damaged.

I’d be hard-pressed to feel sorry for someone dunking his $2million car in a salt-water lagoon. Distracted by a fracking pelican. And trying to pick up his cell phone.

    This is precisely the sort of situation that falls into my own personal category of tragedies called:

    “Gee, mister, that’s too bad.”

    This just makes me cry. I now hate all pelicans. And cell phones. And people with the money to purchase vehicles like this, but with no talent behind the wheel.

    That poor car.
