    Just had to post this. My husband's department had these Honda Civics wrapped and the article calls them Priuses. I'm a little offended.

    The first project attendees encountered sat outside the front doors of the borough building, as three Priuses from the Penn State Transportation Department were wrapped in green designs and lettering highlighting their compressed natural gas fuel systems.

    Nice looking Priuses! :)

    Rather than being offended, you should feel good.
    The fact that Priuses are normally associated with the tree-hugging thing is really GOOD.

    The writer was not going to be fooled by little green stripes and the big "H" in the front grills! :D

    Our last "Prius" looked just like those, I don't see the problem. :ROFLMAO:

    I don't know what this means but I can say this. When I owned my Honda Fit? People were always mistaking it for either being a hybrid or being a Prius. So I had to explain it wasn't a hybrid and sometimes explain it wasn't a Prius.

    This never has happened in reverse.

    Well, it's not funny for me. I'm alarmed how the American society is progressively dumb down and lives detached from reality in the pop culture/celebrity worship state. The current election cycle is a good example. The "Idiocracy" movie nailed it.
