For any Brits (or those familiar with British slang) on the list...

...who in America thought it was a wise idea to name one of our primary mortgage companies Fannie Mae???

Obviously someone who doesn't watch British television.

*facepalms*

I wish it was just a candy company, maybe it wouldn't give me work related nightmares that way... ;)

Unrelated! But I just had cause to reference Geneticus in a chat while watching a live wrock concert stream. Blast from the past!

HA! Either far too awesome, or our scary pasts coming back to haunt us... *g* I need to re-read that soon though, just because I can, and because no matter what, Geneticus is awesome. :)

However, if in some alternate universe we ever end up doing that once planned prequel/sequel, we may have to retitle it...see below...

Most people in America don't realize that there is pop culture other than theirs, so of course they would name mortgage companies Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
