Honda’s Insight: Sucking Worse Than Anything Has Ever Sucked

More Schadenfreude, this time directed at teh ghey Eco-hippies who plunk down big bucks for a Honda Insight Hybrids. A few choice phrases from the review

The Honda’s petrol engine is a much-shaved, built-for-economy, low-friction 1.3 that, at full chat, makes a noise worse than someone else’s crying baby on an airliner. It’s worse than the sound of your parachute failing to open. Really, to get an idea of how awful it is, you’d have to sit a dog on a ham slicer.

The nickel for the battery has to come from somewhere. Canada, usually. It has to be shipped to Japan, not on a sailing boat, I presume. And then it must be converted, not in a tree house, into a battery, and then that battery must be transported, not on an ox cart, to the Insight production plant in Suzuka. And then the finished car has to be shipped, not by Thor Heyerdahl, to Britain, where it can be transported, not by wind, to the home of a man with a beard who thinks he’s doing the world a favour.

Good for Ewe!

    Whoa! Watch out for that smug cloud! Knowing facts isn’t good enough. Do you feel like you’re right? Are you preying on everyone’s fears? Do your friends ‘feel’ the same? What the consensus?

    Just like George Clooney took credit for the Civil Rights Movement (on behalf of the Enlightened Ones) the ”hybrid movement” uses it’s own hyperbole.
