Some people say that the type of car you drive is directly proportional to the amount of action you get. The folks over at Honda Motor Company took that a little too literally when they printed up manuals for 18,000 Honda Fits and 8,000 units of the company's 2007 motorcycles. In an attempt to provide customers the number for a government hotline, the manual actually quotes the digits of an even "hotter" line at which a woman -- not the kind of girl you'd bring home to Mom, by the way -- lets callers know that they're welcome to talk at a rate of just 99 cents per minute. Jokes aside, the misprint has irritated enough customers to get the attention of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and affected customers should be receiving a correction in the form of a postcard in the mail somewhat soon.

      I LOLed when Canon gave me a phone number...only to hear "Hey sexy, you looking to talk to some hot women..."

      It was a in-print phone number, so I know I was not the only one to call it.

      Whilst it may be an honest mistake, has anyone considered it could be the result of a disgruntled employee? Just about to be laid off and wanted revenge.

      One way for Honda to tell the owner to get f**ked and make a buck in the process. Will help to cover the costs of recallls and TSB's.

      The "trollop" in the accompanying photo is SMOKIN HOT!!! I'm guessing she gets a lot of aerobic exercise. I'd be her trainer any day.
