    Not exactly the same format as the rest of the jokes, but over in Iraq we unofficially named our Hummve "Kevorkian...." [}:)]

    Not exactly relevant, but this made me think of it.
    The BMW emblem (looks like a checkerboard, but round) actually symbolizes a spinning propeller, because of the aircraft heritage.
    Same with Mitsubishi....Theirs is a 3-blade propeller.
    And of course, that logo on your Husqvarna chainsaw (and your vintage MXer) simulates a gunsight because they produced rifles.

    My favorite has always been the Ford, Pinto!

    Shortly after Ford began to export the Pinto to South America they
    began to notice a rather steep sales trend in Brazil. Shortly, they
    were selling them almost as soon as the little cars were rolled off
    the boats! Their dealerships were pleading for more cars! "Send more
    Pintos, immediately!" was heard everywhere!

    Ford investigated.

    Ford soon discovered the reason why ...

    Pinto in Portuguese means pen`is!

    ... the name of the export cars to Brazil were changed!

    ... sales dropped proportionally/radically!

    Once again the prudish Americans had found their level ... and once again
    the Brazilians were out of a good laugh at our expense!

    This is a no shter! In the early 70's Nova sales in Latin America would not take off from the ground. After countless meetings and thousands of dollars worth doing research, top management finally came with a reason.
    NOVA (no va) in Spanish means "doesn't go!".
