Well, it's been a while since we've had a comparison between librarians and cars. Thankfully, John Matras of the Phoenix Examiner has ended the hiatus, albeit in a sideways manner; I suspect most of us wouldn't mind being compared to a Mercedes-Benz!
In his "Road Test: 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4Matic car review; Mercedes' naughty librarian" he brings up the "dowdy librarian type", and then says Mercedes has kind of been like that lately... "Good, solid, well-built and dependable, but with the sex appeal of a German banker in a dark-blue double-breasted pin-striped suit. With a watch fob." The rest of the article goes on to laud the changes in design and engineering that appear in the car.
I'd rather be a Mercedes than a Honda, you know.
