Flabbergasted is probably the only word that just about sums up our reaction to the news that an Indian businessman in Dubai spent AED 33 million on a number plate with the number 5 on it. 

Yep, you read that right. AED 33 million. On a number plate. With the number 5 on it. And nope, the number plate has no special powers....but maybe businessman Balwinder Sahani knows something we don't.

You can pay AED 33 million for a number plate...but you can't stop others from making their own

We're as shocked as you are

Understatement of the century

The memes have been pretty hilarious too
