Oh, No, someone's having a laugh, surely...are there no English vernacular speakers in the boardrooms of Pentax or Ricoh?

PRIC, Ltd

Oh dear, oh dear!

I'm reminded of the Canadian Conservative Reform Alliance Party, a political party bold enough to proclaim that they were full of CCRAP. They renamed it before I could collect any election signs though.

I only hope that one day they can become a PRIC to Canikon. Then we will be known as PRICanikons.

A trend maybe ... ?

Oh well, "P.R.I.C., Ltd." ... kind of goes with Pentax "Q" in French ... "Q" = "cul" = "ass".

Maybe the next DSLR product will be named the "PRIC K-Y" ... Just keep on smiling.

Well, there once was a merger of two netball clubs in a little town called Cockatoo. They ended up being the Cockatoo United Netball Team.....

But not for long......

If your a little down and depressed? Take a PRIAC and your live wil get sunny

There is always a lot of fun in those names and many countries and languages give a lot of options.
