A dozen??

You know I love to write about the excesses of American culture. I was amused that this luxury SUV has the option of 12 (twelve) cup holders!

That means 5 of the 7 or 8 passengers can all have one hot and one cold drink by their elbows.

For the record, the model shown (the Buick Enclave) also has a navigation system that costs an extra $3,025. That is mind-boggling to me. You can get a cheap after-market GPS for maybe $200 these days.

The very very cheapest you can buy an Enclave for is about $33,000 - before the inevitable factory discounts, even though it's a relatively new model.

Well, while we're talking about (read: making fun of) American culture, the extra cup holders are simply because our exponentially-expanding girth can no longer be satiated by a mere Big Gulp. No. Now we must have two. More is better, but two will do.

And didn't you mean 7 or 8 thighs?

We don't have any cup holders in our eight seater car!
