While I find the Stuff White People Like blog pretty funny, I feel the need to start this post with one of those "don't read if you're easily offended" disclaimers. Got it? OK, good. Those of us with an appreciation for lowbrow-yet-biting satire can now sit back and enjoy today's topic: the reasons white people like the Toyota Prius.
- The Prius might be the most perfect white product ever. It's expensive, gives the idea that you are helping the environment, and requires no commitment/changes other than money.
- The Toyota Prius gets 45 miles per gallon. That's right, you can drive 45 miles and burn only one gallon of gasoline. So somehow, through marketing or perception, the Prius lets people think that driving their car is GOOD for the environment.
- It's a pretty sweet deal for white people. You can buy a car, continue to drive to work and Barak Obama rallies and feel like you are helping the environment!
