Legal Notice

I just learned that Man Van is how Chrysler is actually referring to their new mini van. I was using it to be ironic, and now it can no longer be that, so I herewith denounce and deny all Man Van references made in this blog or by me in other public places. From now on that beautiful thing of Asian descent I drive is to be known as the Manivan. It's a clean title. I googled it.

I also claim the term Manivan as my own juvenile creation this 23rd day of September in the year of oh Lord, Two Thousand and Ten. You can use it, but you must to do so with knowledge of my superior sophomoric wit.

If you are serious about ownership of this most excellent new noun, I strongly suggest registering it as a .com and .org url immediately. That's the only way to own any bit of language any more.
