So we went by an RV dealership today, and there was a big banner advertising Onan generators.

My first thought - "What's the point of a generator that just dumps gas on the ground?"

Current Mood: amused amused

i've always wondered about that brand myself... where does the output current go, anyway?

As long as you don't get any on you, where's the harm?

heh.

In Australia, one of the more popular SUVs is the Mitsubishi Pajero.

Apparently fewer people over here learn Spanish compared to the USA...

OK, I'm Spanish deprived....

And yes, I've wondered about the brand name Onan for a while. Did someone somewhere actually name their kid Onan? (Not as surprising as you might think ... a lot of people pick Biblical names for their kids, not necessarily thinking about what the name means or represents....)

in some Spanish-speaking countries, pajero is slang for a habitual masturbator, with pretty much the same extended meanings as "wanker" - loser, lazy person, jerk (which comes from "jerk off", btw), fool, ne'er-do-well, generally worthless person. however, in Spanish, the sexual meaning is primary, and implies that he's so sexually backward (an unforgivable character flaw for a Spanish male!) that he can't get a woman, so all he does is sit around and milk the lizard...

I know someone who has a Pajero (imported from Japan, it's normally called the Shogun over here). I'll have to tell him that :-)

Hahahahaha....Dorothy Parker had a pet caged bird she named Onan because he spilled his seed.

*LAUGH* Oh, if I ever get a bird, that's exactly what I'd name him!

So, joking aside, what were you doing at an RV dealership?
