Quasi-automotive imagery

Mark Stevenson, contributing half of an Infiniti JX35 QX60 review to The Truth About Cars:

The JX seems to be able to hit that middle ground sweet spot: not terribly forgettable like the Audi Q7 but it won’t make your kids lose their government approved school lunches when you pull up to the front door at the end of the day like the Lincoln MKT. While I would be remiss to call the JX sexy, it definitely has the right curves in the proper places, like an over-sexed female biology teacher with a strict workout regimen and a winky eye. You know it is wrong to like her, but you still do, even 15 years after she taught you the reproductive rituals of chimpanzees.

For the record, I took my high-school biology classes from a nun — a Sister of Saints Cyril and Methodius, if I remember correctly. She looked like she might have worked out, to the extent that you could tell, but you may be assured that her eye wasn’t the least bit winky.

The other half of this review, incidentally, contains this remark by Matthew Guy: “I think it looks like a Murano with breasts, and well developed co-ed ones at that.” I guess a two-person review is easier when both persons are single-minded.

    As a biology teacher (well, professor), I am making a horrified face right now.

    I will observe the only time I have a “winky” eye is when I start to get the old Chief-Inspector Dreyfus twitch when yet another person tries to use a beaker when the lab specifies a graduated cylinder.

    I studied those pictures for hours and the only rack I saw was on the roof. (The fact it doesn’t have a roof rack is no reason to ruin a good snark.)
