Good News Hippies: Toyota Has Announced the Official Plural Form of the Word “Prius”

Posted in Pictures, Video, Commercials, Media by wolferadio11 on February 24, 2011


You’re on the way to the raw food commune in your Prius. And when you get to the parking lot, most people rode bicycles of course, but everyone who drove came in a Prius. And you want to take a picture for your tweet about the Prius-filled lot. But you don’t know the plural form of the word Priuses. And that stops you. Toyota is finally here to help. They ran a six-week poll asking people to vote on the preferred plural form of the word Prius, and the winner is . . . Prii. (–It’s pronounced Pree-eye.) Prii beat out Priuses, Prium, and Prien. “Prii”? Really? Apparently voting for “Pri-tentious” was too on-the-nose.
