Not so much a product, but a tv Cookery programme on SBS called "Simply Ming"...having lived many years in Scotland, this made me chuckle, I still use the term 'mingin' instead for example 'awful'! - incidentally, he's an asian chef

I liked the electrical plugs here - when rewiring UK elec devices, I found that you have the choice of plugs with cables labeled 'side entry' & 'bottom entry' (when I actually wanted 'back entry', which they didn't seem to have eek: ). :scared:

This had me weak with laughter in Bunnings the other week.... whoever thought buying electrical equipment could be so entertaining?

'coon cheese' I've never been able to figure that one out. QUOTE]

The name Coon came from Edward William Coon who patented a process for the accelerated ripening of natural, unprocessed cheese in 1926.

Aussie brand names aren't weird - just different. It's like a yank saying 'oh you drive on the wrong side of the road.' Not wrong - just different. BUT in saying that... I came across "Dr. Brains Famous Meaty Faggots" in a Belfast Sainsbury's that made me look twice and laugh. NO WAY I'd ever put one of them in my mouth! But I have some gay friends who would!
