Those who don't get the last one, look up the story of the Honda Fit name change!
Or don't.

I did. Kind of what I expected. Thank you since I learned things having never heard of a Honda Jazz as a car or a motorcycle.

On the naming of cars, I was always amused by the decision at General Motors to name a car the Chevy Nova since anyone who made it through the first couple of weeks of Spanish class knows no va means "does not go".

Next one is something I found in net in finnish - my translation.

WARNING - appetite destructing content !



First year medicine students had first anatomy class. They were assembled around dissection desk. There was a corpse under white sheet. Professor starts : “ In medicine you will need two things. FIRST one is that you do not abhor anything in human body.”


He showed example. He lifted the sheet, stuck his finger in rectum and then put his finger in his mouth. “Now you do it!” Students were alarmed, but after two minutes of hesitating they each stuck their finger first into corpses rectum, then into their mouth. When they were done, the professor gazed at them and continued:


SECOND most important is to observe carefully. I stuck my MIDDLE finger into rectum - and my INDEX finger into mouth. From now on - OBSERVE CAREFULLY !”

Is that used for raking the Finnish forests? :tiger:

This particular example dwells in urban garden, but since it is adjustable both in length and width, I see no reason, why it would not suit in forest, too. :watermelon:
