Forget the Jesus Phone, here's the Rude Phone
A grubby little handset
NSFW It costs $78, it is available in black, red or white and it is called the WANK E5.
No, not an personalised number plate, but the name of a Nokia handset on sale at SoloMobi, a Chinese retailer.
Going Solo? That sounds about right.
We guess the name will change soon enough; and before sniggering too hard, we happily acknowledge that SoloMobi or Nokia's English is a helluva lot better than our Chinese. Or Finnish, now we think of it.
Meanwhile, raise your wrists to another hilarious language misunderstanding. And let's fondly recall Mount Wank in Bavaria, the picturesque town of Fucking in Austria. and our favourite football team Deportivo Wanka, of Peru.
[Hat tip to Tony Armstrong.]
NSFW? We know some employers frown on sweary stuff.
Somewhere near the Wank berg is a campsite, run by the "Hell" family. (Hell is German for light or bright.) There is a roadsign to their campsite, it uses typical German efficiency and has only 2 words :
CAMPING HELL ->
Makes me laugh more than the photo somewhere of me and a mate pretending to pleasure ourselves in front of the Wank Bahn cable car station sign.
At the local office..
we always drove past before the sales force were out on the road, so the carpark was full of WANG cars
Remember the WANG HQ building?
It was fairly nondescript except for the large word 'WANG' in the center of the top of each side, and whenever we drove past it my brother and I would snicker -- "heh, heh, it says wang!", "look, its wang is showing!", "does that mean it's full of wang?", &c. We were unparalleled wits, I tell you.
Am I the only one
old enough to remember Wang (funny on this side of the pond) computers, especially mainframes?
Running reports on "The Wang"
Of course, since it was a mainframe-
"Is the Wang Up?"
"Is the Wang down?"
"Is the Wang working?"
I'll get me coat, the one with the "Wang Operator's Manual" in the pockets...
Don't forget that the swiss team "Youg Boys" are based in Wankdorf...
