Yes indeed, to be found on eBay, item 4501319285. While all your
buddies are waiting in line for the way more common Lotus Elise, YOU
could own the much rarer 2005 Lotus ELIZE! Bidding is starting at
only $1,000, a steal... or you can snag this rarity for the buy it
now price of ONLY $57,499.00.

You would think if someone was asking nearly $60K for a car they
could at least spell the model name correctly!

ouch. I'll pass the Blame to Noah Webster for that...

and speaking of dictionaries:

"yank"
NOUN: A sudden vigorous pull; a jerk.

"jerk"
NOUN: 1. A sudden abrupt motion, such as a yank or twist. 2. A
jolting or lurching motion. 3. Physiology A sudden reflexive or
spasmodic muscular movement. 4. jerks Involuntary convulsive twitching
often resulting from excitement. Often used with the. 5. Slang A
foolish, rude, or contemptible person.

Anyway you cut that definition, none are complementary, the brit's
have been calling us jerks for 300 years... and we seem to "ok" with
it, even taking the title on as if it was something cool! They being
the "yank"ers we being the "yank"ees.

What's up with that?
