    I have yet to see a Prius doing more than 60, for real. And that was in a 65mph zone.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    That's a problem with the drivers, not the vehicle.

    I am aware of that. That's the joke.

    I had to drive my nephew's Prius when helping him move. The experience wasn't my favorite, but that had more to do with a great many more things than the nameplate. There has to be a better implementation of some of those systems. Also, the engine turning off when stopped at a traffic light was horribly wrong. When you'd start to move again, it feels like you're dropping the clutch on a manual transmission.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.
