He’s Got A Lot On His Plate
A license plate with nothing but the number "1" on it went for a record $13.5 million at a charity auction in the United Arab Emirates on the weekend. Saeed Khouri said: “I bought it because it's the best number. I bought it because I want to be the best in the world." The record sale surpassed the $6.8 million that was paid for an Emirati licence plate at an earlier auction with the number "5" on it.
FOOTNOTE: Number one on the hit parade.
