So what if a female professor says "I like to eat semen" in class? That's my numerical method professor, she meant "salmon".
maybe she mean:
Made in Japan, destroyed in Sulz im Wienerwald.

I remember an anecdote on a university:


One professor said that semen was full of sugar.
Then one woman, attendant, said: then, why it tastes salty?
Just after this she realized and blushed. While she was getting off class embarrased professor said: that's because swweet papilas are in front of tongue and salty ones are in the back....

That whole "taste zones on the tongue" theory has been discredited since hasn't it?

Fluke Transportation Group.  Their slogan is, "If it's on-time... it's a Fluke!"

fluke
flo͞ok/
noun
unlikely chance occurrence, especially a surprising piece of luck.

Yeah...

Today we got to know that the notorious Cambridge Analytica of the recent Facebook controversy has shutdown...
only to reborn again with a new name: Emerdata.

That tells at least one thing: in their marketing/branding team they don't have any French or Italian staff, or somebody would have cautioned them against using a company name that sounds like Itsshitty  :-DD

And lends itself naturally to calling them EnemaData...
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

Honda planned to release the Honda Fit/Jazz with a different name. They changed their mind when the promotional materials they sent out was met with protests from Sweden.

Have an old invoice from a jeweller in Hong Kong airport, Fook jewellers. Was for a ring my father bought in 1981 during a trip to Japan.

Reminds me of joke I read some 20 years ago:

Quote
Micro soft: It needs Viagra


Now looking at the Windows logo, I wonder if it's going to be a diamond shape in the next iteration.

Mitsubishi called one of their cars "Pajero" from the Leopardus pajeros (south american mountain cat).

Needless to say that this model was not exactly a high runner in Spain  :-DD

Dictionary says:
Pajero [persona] Que se masturba con frecuencia.
Pajero [person] That masturbates frequently.

Pajero [person] That masturbates frequently.
That car seems to have a different name in each market - Pajero, Montera, Shogun. etc.

Dandong is a city in northeast China, boarder with North Korea.
Thus it is a hub city for NK defectors and escapees. They cross the river to Dandong, then move to the closest province capital Shenyang (which happens to be my hometown), and seek political asylum from SK consulate in Shenyang.

The first of many times i drove through France, i passed a hotel after a vandal;with a sense of humour.
the huge sign on the side said ' Hotel Premier ass '  he smashed the C off the front and the E off the end.(Hotel Premier Classe)
In tenerife we saw coffee called 'chitti' (shitty)..AND IT WAS!
we had a parcel delivered (badly) by a company called TransHit; their sticky tape around the mangled box read 'TRANSHIT'
my ex-wife went to school with a girl called Theresa Green; spoken in her 100mph Liverpool accent 'treesa-green'.
my son noticed a T-Shirt in a supermarket trying to copy the group 'backstreet boys' logo...unfortunately 'Back Side Boys'...?
that's what happens when someone who 'thinks' they can speak english orders crap from china!
