A Beast by Any Other Name

What's larger and more obnoxious than a Ford Excursion?

1. Rosie O'Donnell.

II. A Unimog--The 20-foot long, six-ton gargantuan sport utility that DaimlerChrysler recently announced.

C. Both 1 and II.

If you answered C, you'd be wrong. (Rosie's a few kilos short--or so her agent claims.)

The answer is II: the Unimog--a 20-foot-long, six-ton gargantuansport utility vehicle that DaimlerChrysler announced this week.

The UNIMOG?! Surely, among our six listeners, we can find a more fitting name for this ultimate behemoth!

So, we asked for your suggestions. Boy, did we get 'em. We got enough to fill a veritable fleet of Unimogs. And, with the help of our statistician Marge Innovera, and using a top secret technique involving incantations, a Ouija board and three dozen cannoli... we selected the finalists, had a contest, and tabulated the results.

Here they are.

Yours in putting the Unimog in its rightful place,
