Having worked with children for years I am permanently over-concerned about keeping my language clean at all times while teaching. There’s nothing worse than an irate parent accusing you of corrupting their off-spring with inappropriate language, however innocent the actual incident might have been in context.
Anyway, that isn’t the point of this blog, which is actually to tell you one of my early delights with Spanish, before all these concerns took over. I refer, of course, to the awfulness of Spanish product names. Dyc whisky, Bonka coffee, Bimbo bread and Colon washing powder were the first ones I came across. Has anyone found any more?
