My Prius is polite because it doesn't make rude noises when I lock and unlock the doors with the remote.

My Prius is polite because: it waits QUIETLY for the light to turn green.

My Prius is Polite because it's so quiet when I pull in the garage that our Minature
snauzer does not bark. However, he barks like crazy when people walk down the sidewalk in front of the house.

Our Preii are polite because they are made by folks in Japan - a country which is known for politeness - and because Preii respectfully bow to the environmental goddess by taking a baby step toward reducing the impact of using fossil fuel.

Are you going all the way back and reading every post from the beginning? :lol:
Go for it! It is fun to see some of the old classic prius threads from the early adopters.

"Preii" is the plural form of "Prius" in the vernacular.
And here's an haiku for you~

Planet X'd

Proud, puny Pluto
Shunned by Earthlings smaller still
Brightening, she moons

... Well, I might say "Pree-u-sizz" in referring to a plethora of them, but I'm not from wherever lame ducks are from~

And I could say we drive "Priora", but lawyers might think I'm getting ahead of myself~

Or I could claim a higher conscience by virtue of my Pre-eye...

But Wikipedia says "(The word) "Prius" is a not a verb but a Latin comparative adjective or adverb, the neuter nominative singular form of the adjective whose corresponding masculine and feminine nominative singular forms are "prior"... "~

Moreover, the very polite folks at Toyota herself graciously said that owners are welcome to use whatever they like~

... And besides, I don't speak Latin, and don't plan to visit Vatican City anytime soon~

I like Prii as the plural. There is the double benefit of being totally understood and getting extra attention at the same time.

Before "Flight Attendants" became the politically correct term, I liked calling stewardesses "stewardii".
