  1. How could you name a baby Dweezle? I've often wondered how Frank Zappa and wife could look at their tiny, newborn and say to each other - "Dweezle." Now I'm having the same sort of thoughts about the marketing people at Ikepod Watches. They actually decided to name their creation "SeaSlug." Isn't that one of those leech-like, wormy looking creatures that slimes? Makes you wonder what some of the other name suggestions were.

    It is my understanding that western translations into Chinese are phonetic, not for meaning. When I was issued my DMZ pass in Korea, my name was translated at "mock hang tree" which was as close as the translator could come to the sounds of McIntyre.
