Lemon, as in a bad car, or something affected by an unfixable original manufacturing defect.
What's the opposite (fruit theme would be cute), as in something that long outlasted it's original and intended lifetime but refuses to die?

Curiosity bit #1: In Brazil, they use Pinaple to describe Lemons.
Any Brazilians to explain why?

Alan's sedan vs. coupe thread comes to mind. Oh wait, fruit theme. Not sure what it is, but I think there's one in the back of the fridge at work. It's definitely organic.

No, we drive cars too :D

Seriously, I can't remember a specific word for it. I'll consult a few friends.

OTOH, 'Montagsauto = Monday car' is how we call new cars with a lot of problems from the first day on.

Oh, that explains the root of a rumor I've heard long time ago.
It says... auto manufacturers list the production week, but not the exact production date because a lot of people would refuse the Monday ones.

In keeping with the fruity theme, the opposite of lemon would have to be 'cherry'.

Hmmm.... cherry?

Peach = A particularly admirable or pleasing person or thing.

Cherry = The hymen considered as a symbol of virginity.

:dunno:
