I think I know the answer to this simple stupid question, but I obviously frequent Prius Chat and and other automotive websites. I know again obviously that the internet spans the globe and so you get different people with different languages and cultural perspectives. You know, someone from the UK is likely to say they are going to have their "Lid" repainted while someone from New Jersey is likely to say "Hood". But I admit, when I noticed some people saying "Bumber" for bumper...at first I thought it was just a random misspelling. But it happens regularly and repeatedly. So I just came to the conclusion that in other parts of the world...beyond my sheltered horizons some people call Bumpers..Bumbers... I just wondered if anyone could add insight, as locally in the Pacific NW of The United States nobody calls a Bumper a Bumber. And not that I really care...Hood...Lid...Bumper..or Bumber...but I always figured you called a bumper a bumper because ideally it's function is to prevent or cushion the vehicle from "bumps". I know what a bump is, but what is a "bumb"? At least with "Lid" I can see the logic...but Bumber? Just sounds wrong.
