Yep. The Q tip.

You've got to wonder, then, about the BMW 'Z' Series.

(That's Zed, by the way.)

I have often wondered about "Z" series cars. And the 300-M, and other such letters. It makes me wonder, is a Z-series better than an A-series? Because A's are top grades. But then Z sounds so cool. But if you get a Z in school...well... we're not allowed to give lower than the letter F. So is Z especially bad? Should we start giving Zs for good work, because they sound so futuristic and accomplished?

...These are the things that plague me.

Are E's ever given out in school? We just skip that letter, don't we? A scathing indictment, it would seem, of the literary prowess of the education system...

Yeah, I'm not a fan of meaningless number names for vehicles. Some of them have meanings, though, and I like those - like the Cherokee 120, has a 120 horsepower engine.

I would like to be given a Z on a report card. When you get a teaching job you'll need to notify me, so I can enroll, and get an official Z in the class.

...locusts are the things that plague me. And Egypt.

Of course, our inventor hero earned his name from this, and went on in later years to develop technology for British Intelligence.

Wait...John Cleese invented the Q-tip? Awesome!
