Is it just me and my schoolboy humour, but surely they could come up with a better name for this product?

I was pleased to read that "Its fascinating possibilities allow you to get the best results out of your equipment."

One of the controls is 'bypass period' which makes sense, especially for married men.




etc etc etc

Instant gratification is actually pretty good. It's fast as well.

Probably take their inspiration from a UK company that always describes itself as "The master bakers".

I'm guessing that the next model will be the 'T' series and our mirth will be complete!

While we're down here anyway...

(Variation on a theme by Dave B)

My first thought was "a clever marketing ploy for techy types", next I thought "direct translation from the Chinese".

Whatever the truth it's only likely to resonate to childish types (like me) during series 1-7. After that it goes mainstream.

I can't see what's so funny - this is a serious piece of kit! All the parts were thoroughly tested on this component analyser from Wayne Kerr Electronics:

Have *you* passed the Wayne Kerr Test??

Fascinating!! here's an extract from CCs link.
''This excess wankiness is signalled by an overload of the wankometer (compare bogometer). When the wankometer overloads, the conversation's subject must be changed, or all non-wanks will leave.''

Now, I have heard that the colonials are a bit odd ..

Wang is not a good name for a PC. Discuss.

Years ago a guitarist over here had a fan letter from the USA telling him he was a whang king , meaning master of the whammy bar .

I work in the telecoms industry. A commonly used acronym is "WAN" (for Wide Area Network). Guess what we call the resident WAN expert? Yep... the WAN King.

Keeps us amused...
