They call me... MISTER Stig

If you don't know who The Stig is, I'm not sure you know me as well as you think you do.  But not knowing The Stig makes it almost impossible to explain why this recent gift makes me so giddy.

I'll include some links in this post, but the short answer is that The Stig is a character created for BBC television's  Top Gear.  He is a professional driver who races all the reviewed vehicles.  The Stig's costume, a nomex racing suit and helmet, naturally obscures his identity which has been the source of endless speculation and series features about who - or what - The Stig is.  

Since The Stig can be anyone, there is no reason The Stig could not be me.  Therefore I ask that you kindly refer to me as Mister Stig.  (You get brownie points if you catch the famous movie reference.)
