Funny Story

This trawler pulls into my marina (a real one, with nets and everything)

Boat name is "Avisa"

I say to the owner "Pretty name, whats it mean?"

He says " Ever since I bought the boat I am always reaching for a Master Card or a Visa. Just thought Amastercard was a dumb name for a boat.

Reminds me of the old Albert Collins song with AC Reed on sax and Casey Jones on drums from the 70's called mastercharge.

Funny story, thanks for the share.

There is a local boat named "Isis". Pretty boat, pretty name. Unfortunate turn of events...

My friend and fellow TFer has one named ISIS. I suggested he rename her Daesh.

"Avisa" boat name - That is funny! As the truth often can be...

A tool product line I invented, patented/trademarked, and sell on the web and in retail stores is "EZ Build Masonry(TM). Historically, (hysterically to some - lol), due to difficulties of masonry building in general, the "EZ Build" portion of my masonry construction tool-line's name resembles an oxymoron play on words... that is untill people find how easy masonry building really can be! Both DIYers and Professionals love it's many simplification [i.e. EZ] masonry building techniques.

Yah, wish the US had adopted the latter derogatory name.

Isis is an ancient and beautiful name, let's hope the current connotation fades fast.

Nice song too, if you like Dylan
