New Class of STD?

Post by parrot » July 12, 2014, 6:24 pm

I'm pretty sure the car in the photo below was an auto version, I don't know if the Nissan Syphilis comes in an STD version. But I've been meaning to write to Nissan and tell them they misspelled the name.

The other Nissan name that catches my attention around town is the Juke. It's another misspelling of Joke. Then there's the Nissan Cube! The rear lights are a foot off the ground.

And today, a billboard announcing Pope is coming to town. Imagine that! And in his new movie, Pope plays a hot, sexy playboy.

Oh, who needs a junta to tell me to be happy?

One could almost think that a certain chain of stores that appear to be doing rather well in Washington & Colorado over the last few days had opened a branch in Udon :-$

Nope, just one of those rainy, boring sort of days.

When we bought our Sylphy this year I was curious as to the meaning of the word so I did a Google search and this is what I found.

sylphy (ˈsɪlfɪ)

Definition: adjective = sylphlike

sylphlike or sylphic or sylphish or sylphy (ˈsɪlfˌlaɪk)

Definition

adjective
1.attractively slender
2.(classical mythology) resembling any of a class of imaginary beings assumed to inhabit the air


Not the best name for car in my opinion however we like the vehicle. We've only had it for a few months but it handles nicely and is very comfortable. Back in the States the same model is called the Nissan Sentra.

From the Title I thought you were letting all the bar hoppers who partake of the whiles of the ladies know about a new strain of S**ual Transmitted Disease

Syphilis test drive, that gives STD a whole new meaning. Forget the dictionary, it is what it is!
Is a large shot of antibiotics into the left buttock required post test drive?

OT............. \:D/

It's probably a darn good idea. I believe I've heard that it significantly helps to prevent going color blind. :lol:

Looking at the name of the car again.....Thai's write it as ซิลฟี.....so must pronounce it as Sin-Fee.
Name aside, it is a decent looking car, certainly a lot better than the Cube or the Joke.

Recently had a Sylphy as an Udon airport taxi, and could not believe how huge the boot / trunk is! Much more space than a Toyota or other taxi.
