…Is the Mitsubishi Toppo BJ Wide. In this case, BJ means “Big Joy“. Toppo is apparently some sort of chocolate-filled, bread-based snack. Neat.

I’ve always appreciated the Japanese and their ability to name cars. I don’t blush at the thought of a Daihatsu Naked or think the Isuzu M.U. (Mysterious Utility) sounds silly. Even the Mitsubishi Mum 500 Shall We Join Us is brilliant compared to bland North American car names. TL. Altima. Echo. CX-9. Routan. Sportage.

Oh well. Time to bitch about something else.
