My visual cortex inserted an “h” into the name.

Wonderful thing, visual preprocessing.

Maybe nobody reads them, but it costs a lot of money to get your name on a car.

Still considered one of the best advertizing values there are out there. A contending team can charge many millions for a primary sponsorship.

My nephew is Chief Mechanic for a big name driver at Joe Gibbs Racing. A few years back we got the grand tour of their Charlotte shop.

There’s a lot, and I mean a LOT, of money in the business.

That's mighty nice.

Not much the gay lobby can do to try to incite a media frenzy over that company.

"I'd like to buy a replacement battery for my partner's personal pleasure device. I need at least 900 cold-cranking amps please."

I was thinking it was banned because they thought that was how Christ is spelled, and the morons at Freedom from Religion threatened a lawsuit funded by Richard Dorkins.
