markie_farkie: Big deal..In other parts of the world, the Mitsubishi Montero is sold as the Pajero. Apparently in South American Spanish slang, Pajero is a term for 'One who masturbates constantly'
Chakro: While not a racial slur, Chevy had the famous "Nova", which translates in Spanish to "doesn't go" when spoken.
elffster: Does it come w/ a Hoodie?
Ed Finnerty: Still better than the AMC Niglet.
BronyMedic: So you want an Ace of Spades?
maachubo: Oneofthesedays: Rufus Lee King: Oneofthesedays: That's what I thought but someone else said they learned about "Monday" on Fark previously.Well, that's got me stumped, as well.First google hitOK I read that and now I'm even more . . . confused isn't the right word. . . amazed, I guess.I shouldn't be though. I didn't even know about "monkey" until a few years ago.If I may make a csb:The funniest joke I had ever heard was a two-parter. "Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? Because it was dead." For some reason, that touched some twisted corner of my brain so that I would laugh so hard I could barely spit out the second part, "Why did the frog fall out of the tree? It was stapled to the monkey." Anyway, a group of us were telling jokes in crew's mess one day and I told that one, and after the first part one of the ELTs says, "HA! N***** got what was comin' to him!" which stopped me in my tracks. I stood with my mouth open for a minute before I could ask what the f*** he was talking about. One of the other guys there (who I already knew was a total racist) finally explained to me that "monkey" was a racial slur. At that point I just walked away. And I haven't been able to laugh at that joke since, which is too bad because it really was the funniest thing I had ever heard.Anyway I'm not sure where I'm going with this, except that there's a whole world of meanings to things that I've never even conceived of. It's a little troubling to think that I might be using derogatory language and not even realizing it.
maachubo: I am realizing that I must be incredibly naive. I had no idea "spade" was a racial epithet
RabidJade: I can't wait for the politically correctness fad to fade away. Every word can offend someone so lets just get rid of them all.

PhiloeBedoe: Will it be attractive? Successful?
Chakro: It's a joke,. lighten up Francis.
James F. Campbell: John Buck 41: Ask Chevy how well the Nova sold in Mexico when it debuted.Why don't you do some research yourself, first?
Fabric_Man: Supposedly, Honda tried to market the Fit in Sweden as the "Fita." It's slang for vagina.
Archimedes' Principal: Trust me. I know a guy who knows a guy at Toyota Japan. The 'Spade' was named after DAVID Spade./He's very popular in Japan.
