I'm sure you've seen the "you are what you drive" list that's spread to every corner of the Internet. One example is at

Some of the items are quite obvious, such as a Buick Park Avenue stating that you're older than 34 of the 50 states.

Some of the others make me say "Huh?":
Acura Integra: I have always wanted to own the Buick of sports cars.
Why is this the BUICK of sports cars? What's the similarity? Does this make the Ford Mustang the Oldsmobile of sports cars? The Lincoln of sports cars? The Cadillac of sports cars?

Acura Legend: I'm too bland for German cars.
I thought that's what the Honda Accord is for. I thought the Legend is supposed to be a premium luxury performance car, not a regular car.

Mercedes 560SEL: I have a daughter named Bitsy and a son named Cole.
Huh? I don't know anyone named Bitsy or Cole.

Plymouth Neon: I wish they'd bring back the Macarena.
Huh? I think a better tagline is, "Consumer Reports is for the birds." Then again, that tagline can just as easily apply to most products from Chrysler, Ford, GM, Audi, and Volkswagen.
