    Has any anti-Prius conspiracy theorist noted the (totally irrelevant) fact that "Prius" looks a lot like "prion"--those sub-virus size (I think) things which are hypothesized (I think) to be disease agents of some sort?
    (E.g., this proves the Prius is another environmentalist plot to sap the American dream of automotive strength and power.)

    Also "Toyota Prius" is an anagram for "Auto spy riot". Hmmm...

    Only drunk cows are a concern for MADD.

    Maybe they should have named the car "Prion" instead of "Prius". Perhaps other drivers would be more hesitant to tailgate a Prion. :madgrin:

    Oh, no, if they did that the hicks would just be making comments like: "look, they left out the 's'."
