I thought this was appropriate, considering what it was like when I left the house

A "pogonip" is a heavy winter fog containing ice crystals.

I hate having to leave dark and early...

In Bakersfield, California, anyone having intercourse with Satan
must use a condom.

It is illegal for any member of the Nevada Legislature to conduct
official business wearing a penis costume while the legislature is in session.

(Just imagine a bunch of guys in penis costumes around a water cooler)

I don't even know how it sounds.

Besides, I've forgotten all of the Welsh I'd ever learned.

Are you sure about that one? He may have been the guitarist that toured with NIN during that album, but I believe that at that point Trent Reznor did all the studio work himself. He only used other musicians when he went out on live shows.


M&Ms turned down an offer to be the sponsor for Spielberg's "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial", thus allowing the sudden rise in popularity of another, then new, candy-shelled delight...Reeses' Pieces.

I'll have a smoked turkey and swiss on thick-sliced Devil's fart, please...hold the mayo. Speaking of gas...



The layer of gas that spreads out from a nova explosion can be traveling at speeds of 5 million miles per hour.

*skeptical look* How do you figure? I've taken German for four years & neither I, nor my German dictionary find anything interesting about the words 'pumper' 'nickel' or 'pumpernickel'.

But if you want to talk about awkward translations, Pickel is the German word for ZIT.

And for all of you who know Spanish, you can just imagine what happened when a car called the 'Nova' was introduced to the global market . . . [For those who DON'T know Spanish, no va would mean no go.]

Then, of course, there was that whole thing with Coca Cola 'It will add life to your years' went to be translated into Chinese & ended up saying something like 'It will bring your ancestors back from the grave'.

*BUZZ!* Wrong answer.

Actually, you're thinking of Pepsi.

However, if you take the name Coca-cola and translate it phonetically into Chinese, then you're drinking the softdrink known as "Bite The Wax Tadpole".

I was repeatedly told Coca Cola, but perhaps, and this is the bottom of the pile answer, I was WRONG.

Such nonsense . . .

I don't care what you were told...it was Pepsi, it was their slogan, and you were wrong. :p

Stick that in your Funk & Wagnalls...
