A Brazilian can be a resident of that South American country, a nut, or maybe a painful bikini wax. It's also the nationality of today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe VW, but is its price carnival-worthy?
A wedge issue is one that divides a group, usually splintering it into smaller, less powerful blocks. Fortunately, yesterday's wedge car - the 1985 Lotus Esprit Turbo - didn't require such a divisive plot as it walked away with a decisive 75% Nice Price win, the second of the week. Another kind of wedge, however, is when your undies get all in a bunch trying to merge onto the Hershey highway. That uncomfortable situation is more accurately a wedgie, to use the medical vernacular, and is not something anybody usually aspires to have happen to them. Despite that, a whole bunch of the beach-goers in Rio de Janeiro purposefully do that to themselves in the name of fashion by wearing thong bikinis. And, for that great sacrifice, I salute them.
