I was amused today to learn that the Scots, known for their colourful language, have decide to rename Hurrican Freidhelm (currently battering them) Hurricane Bawbag. Bawbag actually means 'scrotum' in Scots. Although I am more of the feeling that 'bawbag' just sounds close to 'ball bag', which is of course an alternative, less technical name for the scrotum :)

It first appeared on the social networking sites, spread like wildfire and now apparently even the media are using the name to reach out to their people :) Go language!
