The Subris of Some Drivers

From: Walt Webert

Dear Click and Clack,

While slowly driving home one recent, snowy day (in my car with the broken radio) I came up with a few new words:

subris (n) (rhymes with hubris) - the excessive pride which causes one to drive their Subaru off the road on a snowy day, thinking they could drive as fast as they want since they have all wheel drive. Victims of subris generally lose any respect they had earned among passersby for having a great car.

see also:
Out-back - (adj) describes where tow-hooks should be attached for victims of Subris.

SUVris - (n) generic version of Subris.
