Look. Up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a...bus???

So what brilliant overpaid consultant came up with the name "Airbus" anyhow? I've always thought that's one of the more bonehead product names of recent times. "Hey, I know," said some hotshot ad guy,"Let's call it Airbus! It's like a bus, but up in the air! A flying bus! Everybody loves to travel by bus, don't they? So now they can do it up in the sky!"

Those crafty Europeans.

That's right up there with the Ford Probe. Who wants to buy that?!

Sort of like the bumble bee, you can make anything fly if you put enough effort (money) into it. Do you really want to send to Paris for the parts when you need them? Who knows what snit the French will be in at that point.

Thanks, Twanger, for making me whence whenever I see a Ford Probe for the rest of my life...I hadn't thought of that!
