Googling norks



In which we enjoy even more Googling fun and games.









Words. I love 'em. So, I Googled "norks," a British slang term that I originally heard from Auntie Marianne, a fellow (fellow?) yak supporter. And here's some of what I found...

Norks Dackservice - From what I can gather, my Swedish being non-existant, dack is Swedish for tire (or tyre for my British readers) and Norks are a brand name. The slogan on their website is Ratt dack till din bil! Or should that be Datt rack done killed Bill?

Nork Residents' Association - The ward of Nork falls within the boundaries of Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, in the North East of Surrey. Which is really funny to me as my grandfather was from Surrey. Could explain a couple of things, huh?

New Orleans Rhythym Kings - A 1920's jazz band, from what I can gather.

Nork Deddog - is a special character in the fictional Warhammer 40,000 universe. He is an Ogryn, part of the Imperial Guard army.

And that's just from the first 10 hits.

What's that? Yes, I do have a job. Just far too much time on my hands, otherwise.

I'm so predictable.

Mr. Duck - Ahem. That would be terribly politically incorrect, sir. Not to mention excessively manky. ... *thinks* I'll do it!

TC - I just don't think so. But I've been wrong before *cough*marriage*cough* so don't pay any attention to me.

TRT - He says he's too tyred.

David, darling, it's too late. The Yaks, along with the badgers have unionized. They shall never, ever be free, but be forced to charge union rates from hereon in.
