This obviously does not mean the same thing in the US, but I thought our British members might appreciate this. Check out 5 down, 5 across- http://www.electraisd.net/alumni/1993_seniors.htm

I was reading SI and came across an article by their senior writer Michael Hunt... One of my better friends last name is Hunt and I was like "well it's a good thing your parents didn't name one of your brothers Mike" and she was like "well obviously" I guess some people think about it at least

I am trying to formulate an answer that is worksafe. Lets just say it is not dissimilar to Mr Hunt in meaning. Heard another one recently, a new cider manufacturer called "Dickens". Order one at the bar for that special lady in your life.

Well it certainly is, but regardless, I imagine Mr. Hunt received his fair share of ribbing over the name.

One of my classmates always seemed to say the contexually wrong things when it came to English and colonial peoples. She was in the UK and in some cirumstance asked a older gentleman for a ride (lift), to which he disdainfully replied that he was married... Later she was speaking to someone from New Zealand and since he was looking for somewhere to put his keys as they were going to play soccer she asked if he would like to put them in her fanny (hip pack) to which he was extremely offended, apparently it has an anatomical meaning in their context.

Like virtually every British serviceman who has ever served in Germany, I have a picture of me standing beside the townsign, in the little Bavarian village of "Wank". I thought it was hilarious when I was 21.

LOL. That's just cruel. NB: I've seen a town in the US called 'Intercourse' before. Bearing in mind it means the same there as it does here, I was a bit surprised.

In UK, 'minge' is a slang term for part of the female anatomy. It is widely held that the possession of a ginger example is somewhat unfortunate, bringing as it does the additional burden of the smell of badger's urine. People afflicted with ginger hair are known as 'gwar'.
