The satiric Web site lists the Prius as #60 among stuff white people like, along with Barack Obama, Facebook, San Francisco and Asian girls.
Why the Prius, instead of past favorites like Saabs, Volvos, Jettas or Subaru wagons?
"The Prius might be the most perfect white product ever," the site says. "It’s expensive, gives the idea that you are helping the environment, and requires no commitment/changes other than money...You can buy a car, continue to drive to work and Barak Obama rallies and feel like you are helping the environment!" The ultimate Prius for the man, they add, sports an Apple sticker and a Democratic bumper sticker.
You don't have to prove it any more to us--we like the Prius so much we showed you those shots of the 2010 Toyota Prius we expect to show up at the 2009 Detroit auto show. But what is it with San Francisco, anyway?
