I discovered yesterday that Sam (occasional poster) and a business associate had lunch with someone from Wanker's Corner, Oregon.

Apparently, this place was founded by a Mr Wanker.

Unfortunately, lunch was interspersed with comments from this guy such as "I am proud to be a wanker" etc.

There is no way I could keep a straight face in that situation. I'd be on the floor pounding my fists and head and crying with laughter.

I was in hystericsa when he told me last night. Hopefully, he is going to stop by here today and give some more of these gems (I can't remember them all)

Oh god... what a nightmare. If some American client came into a meeting and introduced themselves as Mr Wanker. Even if I could keep a straight face I wouldn't be able to help dropping innuendoes all through the meeting to try and make my colleagues laugh.

I couldn't even keep a straight face when introduced to a new colleague called Mr Nutter, I'd have no chance with a Mr Wanker :lol:

There's a colleague called "Schoi▀wohl", which could be translated as either Shitwell or Fartwell.

Welcome, Mrs Fartwell....

I wonder if it is pronounced differently.

Maybe, Willie Wonka (of Chocholate Factory fame) was originally called William Wanker and he always pronounced in Wonka then changed its spelling by deed poll?

Let's assume it is a question. Who would you predict is the dumbass around here who will answer it?

Wow. You don't even need to put the word Wankers on that shirt for everyone to know that the shirtwearer is a wanker.

I think "wanker" can only apply to males. Possible female alternatives include "finger-banger" and "bean-flicker".:coolgrin:

So wank is gender specific?

Caligastia
18-10-2002, 19:08:59
I think so, Ive never heard a female refered to as a "wanker" before. Also "wanking" is a male erm... activity.:D

Venom
18-10-2002, 19:11:57
I don't think it's gender specific though it certainly has the connotation of "stroker" and not "masturbater".

walruskkkch
18-10-2002, 19:30:16
But a woman can certainly wank a man.

Caligastia
18-10-2002, 20:03:28
That wouldnt make her a wanker though. Calling someone a wanker is the same as calling someone an asshole, you are not accusing them of masturbating, you are expressing dislike for the person. Also I have never heard of a woman being referred to as a wanker, so it must be gender specific.

Fascinating.

But if it's just being used as derogatory term absent it's other meaning then it could conceivably be used against a woman.

Is gay twat gender specific?

No, it's nationality specific. The Brits.

It could, but I've never heard it used that way. Don't let me be the one stopping you from calling women wankers though.:D

I suppose hermaphrodites are wankers though?

I'm happy to see that America's Wankers are finally getting recognition.

Wanker's Corner (http://www.baucomm.com/vrcc/files.lib/gif/wankers_map.gif) was indeed founded by the Wanker family - and a well known modern Oregon artist, Maude Wanker, is descended from these orginal Wankers.

The famous Wanker's Corner Cafe is a great place to hang out (though it has moved to nearby Wilsonville, apparently to give it more room to expand).

And for hardcore Wanker fans, I recommend Wankerwear: http://www.wankerscorner.com/ushop/
