"You Don't Really Want A Prius", says Dave Barry

Instead, says his blog, you want this: a 1957 Chevy whose entire passenger compartment is a built-in hot tub.

I have to admit, for sheer environmental chutzpah, this is pretty much where it's at. Although I'm unclear on how the pedals work. Sure, a rollover would first eject you and then drown you, but how in heaven's name could you get it to roll over in the first place? I visualize this unstoppable behemoth flattening Tahoes, punching through brick walls, removing entire buildings from the face of the earth in the event of an accident. But roll over? Never.

Hmm. There's probably a really good riff on the Republican Party in there somewhere.
