Yahoo won't allow "Allah" in email addresses, but "God" is fine ... Of course, if you're called Callahan, you're screwed: Yahoo bans Allah

 

Reminds me of the unfortunate citizens of Scunthorpe, England, who could't put their address in AOL messages because of the four-letter word detected inside the town name :P

I had the same problem with a public-sector firewall/proxy once: we couldnt get hold of ethernet drivers because they were "9xxx series" & the 3 xes were blocked.. Also our collaboration with a project in sweden was severely hampered by the fact that "swedish" was blocked too... :P

You're not allowed to have your new iPod engraved

If your name is Nigel.

I wonder how many austrians have gotten an iPod engraved:

And, of course, in the UK they have Timothy Bottoms and Tony Woodcock..

 

Compared to that, Husband and McCool (SS Columbia) sounds almost sane.

 

Almost..

 

 

Ah yes, i almost forgot:

The (likely) next city to host LinuxWorldExpo:

But, as you can see, this forum does the same, breaking

an otherwise perfectly good URL.

Beringer, that's brilliant! I laughed so much over those... :)

 

PS I used my moderator powers to fix the link in your post so you can now go to the f***ing website by clicking on it. I didn't attempt to fix the visible part because no doubt Mash would get a PM saying I was a Bad Girl :(

I think the term "wanker" is lost on many Americans, though - it doesn't mean much over here, which is great, if I call someone a wanker they're not sure if it's an insult or a compliment!

 

They even have an American 'Wanker' beer, believe it or not, and the rest of the English speaking world thinks it's hysterical! Wanker Beer 'Rude foods website' - There's plenty more inappropriate names on that site!

 

I particularly like the name of that sushi restaurant in Singapore, see below. Oh, dear.

Wonder how many American tourists away "on business" went there... :)

Ah, yes, Spotted {censored}! A really tasty English pudding which I love to serve to my American guests :) There's also a steamed suet-based pudding called 'Boiled Baby'...
