(STRAY THOUGHTS) Topic: Measure Of A Man

I saw a car commercial this morning that sort of surprised me.
In it, a man is at a supermarket checkout counter with his veggies and tofu regarding, with a mix of embarassment and jealousy the man behind him in line and his big stack of steaks. Upon leaving the store, however, tofu guy reasserts his manhood by climbing into his Hummer and driving off.
What surprised me is that in the commercials not too subtle subtext, it would appear that a car company is actually admitting what many critics of SUVs have asserted for several years now: That one of the main motivations for a man to drive of these big honking gas wasting monsters is as an attempt to compensate for having a small penis.
