Studly Vladimir Putin Not Afraid to Drive Girly Car

Russia's manliest man, prime minister Vladimir Putin today test drove New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov's ugly new hybrid car, the Yo-mobile. Unsure about the car, he drove it to the president's house for a Security Council meeting and to get a second opinion, according to Russia's RIA Nostovi:

"I am not ready to make any conclusions," Putin told a high-tech commission meeting. "I want to drive this Yo-mobile of yours to Dmitry Anatolyevich [Medvedev] and show it to him."

You can bet that the workers who assembled that car are sweating bullets.
