Comment Of The Day: Hurtful Stereotypes Edition

Photo credit: João Paulo

Earlier today, nefarious miscreant and Jalopnik “writer” Kristen Lee slandered the good, hard working, salt-of-the-earth people who happen to own BMWs. Apparently there is a stereotype out there that they are not the kind, courteous drivers that they really are. Many of you agreed with her, as you are all unwashed peasants who do not understand greatness.

Kristen even did a Google search to prove it, but I had my sneaking suspicion it was not correct. Clearly, us thinking scholars know that this is not true. Why, just look at the BMW X5 in the top photo. That civilized human being very nearly made it into the parking lines! If that is not the hallmark of a good – nay, a great – driver, I do not know what is.


Luckily, some readers are philosophers of a higher plane, like ape_ck:

Looks legit to me. I see absolutely nothing wrong there.

I stand with ape_ck. Why are you so BIAS, Jaloponet?

Congratulations, ape_ck, on your COTD win. May you forever avoid every single BMW, and their drivers.
