Man-oh-man...now that we're in California, we've gots to do some edumacatin' here to our brilliant-but-automotively-challenged brother Defamer. He's sorta like the inverse of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. Or something. We've totally forgotten the plot of that movie, except that it had something to do with Lambos coming off a ship. And DH was autistic and Tom Cruise was slimy. That's about it. Well, we can fake it. It's LA, right?
Of course, because he's more popular than us, he gets all the fresh celeb-auto-spotting tips the latest being George Clooney cruising Greater LA near some secret makeout spot in his fast, ugly, electric Tango. But yo, Mark, we know this hand-wringing about the spelling of nicknames for Bavarian automobiles is all geeky of us and stuff, but a Beemer is a BMW motorcycle. A Bimmer is a car manufactured by the selfsame Bayrische Motoren Werke. Yes, we know that's lame. And no, we don't get it either. Any
propeller-roundel-heads care to explain the discrepancy to us?
