Have you noticed the Mini just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Like we took a nice little British car and slowly made big sluggish and stupid like every other American car.

I'm kind of ashamed that I think they look so cool.

Because they're not, right?

I feel the same, Squid - I think they're pleasing to the eye. And hell, by the time you hit your 40s, you can quit caring about what is and what isn't hip.

I haven't! Does that make me lame?

I have reduced the number of areas of hip-ness that I manage, but I still have several lines-in-the-sand of hipness. Things like, "No mini-vans" and such.

Mine kind of stops at "no Duran Duran or wearing cardigans".

We took a friend's Honda mini-van to the beach last year. That shit was nice.

Those big Minis (ha) look terrible. Little toasters.

I like the new Minis.

Also always had a soft spot for Hondas. Had an old Honda CX500 for a bike, a 2000 Civic and now a 2009 Honda scooter. All great.

I want a mini cooper so bad! However since I am tall, I have this feeling I should be coming out of the mini with a bid red nose, clown shoes and circus music...

There are just some things one should not google, but I digress.

I like the minis too, they're cute!

Smart cars might be too mini though.
