It's a german product called 'PINGO'

PINGO???!?!!?!?!?

Means "penis" in some Latin American countries. I wonder how they came up with that? Maybe it's urine? :yikes:

Apparently it means penguin in deutsche. I wonder how the Latin Americans came up with that piece of slang?

I'm confused :eeps:

Why are there penguins all over the "PINGO" site? Are they using PINGO as a short-form or slang for Penguin?

maybe :dunno:. I don't think that there's a slang for Penguin in german. Maybe the marketing dept. shortened it that way for an easier brand recognition.

I thought I have seen a claymation clip show called Pingo that's on a regular 1/2 hour kids program. It's about this little kid penguin, his mother and his antics. It's usually on Saturday mornings and I usually laugh my ass off b/c I can't understand anthing the little b*stard says. At first I thought this was the way everyone talked, but now I think it must have been in another language. I think its on PBS or something . . .:dunno:

Edit: I think the penguin tastes like beer too.
