2010 Honda Insight: No Laughing Allowed
January 22, 2010
"A blue hybrid, eh? So, does your wife laugh at you?"
This was the query of a friend of mine when I pulled up in the Inside Line long-term 2010 Honda Insight to take him out to lunch.
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"You ever heard Jeff Dunham's comedy bit about driving his wife's blue Prius?"
I hadn't. Didn't even know who Jeff Dunham was.
"Well, he does this skit talking about going from driving his Hummer H1 to his wife's Toyota Prius."
After lunch, I went home and looked it up. The clip has some amusing bits, but it's also kind of offensive, so I'll leave you to your own devices if you want to track it down. But suffice it to say, I think our Honda Insight is sufficiently macho, even if it is blue. And, no, my wife doesn't laugh at me when I'm driving it. If anything, she's probably more amused when I'm in the Corvette.
