Yes! I first saw this name in D.H. Lawrence's book, "Lady Chatterly's Lover." John Thomas -- that brought a chuckle.
So .. how did this name get it fame? I know what its slang for .. but how did it come to be?
That's just too funny. How did it get that name?
Truth in Advertising, eh?
Hahahahahaha! This is just great Sarah! and at the top of the list in big bold letters too!Hugs X
To those who asked wher did this name come from, I really don't know. But you don't name your son John, is your surname is Thomas. Funnily we have a John Thomas here in town!What I do know is it's a very old English term and as Gigi mentioned, it appears in 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'.
hahahahaha! well spotted!
Ha ha ha.We have a car dealer here called Rusty Eck. That always makes me laugh. Sounds like Flipping 'Eck. And why would you choose the name Rusty, for a car dealer business?
Heehee Jo I'm glad you finally made it *snigger*.I have removed a few links etc the past two days to try and help the site load. I think the My Library link needs to go too, I just think all these things slow it down.
Now my Uncle's name is John Thomas, but the excuse there is that Mam's family are all Welsh speaking, so I guess the English slang didn't feature much in Wales 70 years ago!
When I was a kid and used to go to watch the football every saturday with the family, the team we watched had a "star" striker called John Thomas. I kid you not. He was a hero around our way.The mind boggles xx
must be some car LOL!
Ha. I didn't know about that one. I wonder if that car dealer knows. I'm guessing, probably not.
NO!!!! NO!!!! NO!!!! Tooooo funny!
No kidding? I didn't know.
Yes, I read the sign before reading your post and I was chuckling. Many thanks.Greetings from London.
John Thomas is my father's name - first and middle. I was a teen when I discovered the Brit slang meaning. It still amuses me.heeheeheeheehee...
