Default Toyota Prii confirmed

On Jan. 10, the Prius Goes Plural voting campaign asked the public to help Toyota decided what the plural nomenclature of Prius should be. Well, the votes are in and the general public has selected ‘Prii’ as the preferred plural term for Prius.
“With 25 percent of the votes, Prii becomes the word not only endorsed by the public who chose it, but also as the term recognized by Toyota,” Toyota said in a statement. “As such, Dictionary.com has updated its entry for the word ‘Prius’ to reflect this.”
Over the course of the 6-week campaign, ‘Prii’ gathered more than 1.8 million votes. Prii ended up beating out four competitors including Prius, Priuses, Prium and Prien.
“Community has always been a big part of the Prius brand, so it was only fitting that we invite the online communities to participate in the plural discussion,” said Colin Morisako, advertising manager for Toyota. “The people have spoken—Prii will be the accepted term used to describe multiple Prius vehicles going forward.”

25% is not a majority! They need a runoff or this will not be sanctioned by the world democratic society. Toyota will be ostracized from NATO.

I think I need to recalibrate my sarcasm meter, it almost sounds as if you could be serious with this statement.

The Supreme Court just ruled 7-2 that unless a runoff can be completed by Feb. 28th and the results certified, the current state of affairs must stand.

Which is ironic, because a similar decision, made by the same august body, by the same number of votes, occurred in 2000 and the Prius lover lost as a result.
