That's gonna stain.

How horrible it must’ve been to be Bonnie Riach, an Australian woman apparently given to riding with a carton of wine on her car’s roof, when the contents of said container poured out onto the car’s windscreen. It’s as if someone landed on top of the car and just exploded, the wine flooding down in a bloody rush like something out of a Quentin Tarantino flick.

Fortunately, the wine was the only casualty; Riach immediately stopped her car and used her windshield wipers to get rid of it all. 

Moral of the story? Don’t drive with liquids on your car roof, because chances are they’ll somehow open and lead to an unexpected driving problem that could’ve been solved if, you know, you did what the average person does and put your groceries inside the car.
