Posted by on Mar 25th, 2010

Just to make things clear we are talking about the Queen Mary 2 the boat and not the woman.

I took a drive past to get a closer look ,but they wouldn’t let me even remotely nearby. When i said i’m the editor of Life is Savage, the woman said i was lying because she heard  the editor is ridiculously good looking. Go figure.

Let me tell you though ..even from a distance that thing is huge.

I took a couple of pics, but they pale in comparison to this image i found on twitpic taken by user washer77.
