I don't know if its their arrogant design or their drivers' smarmy look when they are overtaken, I just don't know.
I'm fine with Honda's Civic half battery and half petrol engine car. I'm even looking forward to owning a battery powered Land Rover Discovery one time in the (very, very) distant future. Looking at the Prius just makes me clench my fist in preparation for smashing someone in the nose
Unlike some bloggers I know, I do, however, frown on peeing on the door handles of ANY vehicle!
My wife doesn't like me to swear, especially when I'm driving, so I try not to. But those Priuses do test me.
So I came up with an idea.
I'll convince the wife that my swearing is actually something else, so here goes;
The process that Priuses / Prii use to turn their movement into battery power and then back into
car movement? Well it was named after Proffessor Fark of Hinkyflinky, Sweden. The process that is named after him is called farking.
So now, whenever I pass a Prius, I say in an amicable, cheery voice, "look there's a farking Prius'.
And everyone smiles.
