The Name of the Beast

As most of you know, my excellent Pontiac Grand Am has had a name since the first days after I bought it in 2003: Jean Claude.

That name pretty much happened because it was so easy and clever. In September I bought new Nissan Rogue, and have been pondering a name for it ever since. It’s been six months and nothing obvious has occurred to me, so I am finally giving in and calling it the SLAWD. The reason? It’s written on the hatch in handsome chrome letters.

My Rogue is an SL, and had All Wheel Drive, thus SLAWD

  1. I think that Dennis should put a claim on his intellectual property for the Subaroogle. That’s a cute name for a Subaru search engine or something. I’m sure Subaru could find a use for it cause it’s cute. I’m just sayin.
