The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Finally a reason to live

You may remember this from last month:

Close to nine in 10 women (88 percent) say they'd rather chat up someone with the latest fuel-efficient car versus the latest sports car.

Fortunately, there's one out of ten:

If I had to choose between a man who drove a Prius and a man who, say, just signed the lease to a brand new, 4.2 liter, V8 2008 Audi R8, I'm going to pick the Audi R8 every time, as is every other woman on the face of the planet, except those crunchy ones that carry around copies of the Little Red Book in their organic hip pouches, and trust me, while those ladies might be a little easier in the long run, you'll like me better. You might be more interesting to talk to a cocktail party, environmentally conscious automobile owners, but you can't do 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds.

Of course, if I could afford to lease a car that sells for half again as much as I paid for my house — well, I'm sure she's worth it, but damn.
