Wha the fuck is Nan bloody Wang?

I jist drapped by tae see if ye wiz a' behavin'. Tae mah delight, ye were daen better than that and jist bidin' awa' a'the gither.
Excellent! Keep up the guid w**k and fuckin' stay awa'!

However, tae mah utter consternation, Ah noticed that we hud 27 fowlk no bidin' awa'. They'd come fur a look. So I checked the IP addresses. Every bluidy wan o' them wiz in China.

Whit's that aboot? Surely tae goad they dinnae really think Celyn's a real  panda and micht be a ideal mate fer some horny male panda or sumthin'.

Whit ye uptae here, Nan bloody Wang?

Eek! Shocked  No, Celyn is not a real panda!   Anyway, if I were, I could go across to Edinburgh to meet pandas with failed sex lives.

This "Nan Wang" name reminds me of silly wee story once from a friend who worked in computery world, and who swears it is true.  In the computer company Wang, to whatever place in S.E. England, there came a bunch of zippy clever smart American people all keen to tell about the new image, new advertising stragegy - that sort of shit.

So people went to meeting room and watched as the clever USA smart chaps did a whole tedious Powerpoint thingy and it all boiled down to

"look at our bright new slogan, which will stress that we offer really good aftersales service and really care about you and your company".

Bright smart new slogan was

WANG CARES

Eventually all the U.K. staff managed to stop laughing and tried to explain that it wasn't really a good idea as company slogans go.

As a habitual attendee in the world of IT, I can attest to this being troo, but alas it was long before the world of PowerPoint or indeed even the PC, must have been around 1982 is at the latest

Yes, you're right.  For "powerpoint" instead read boring smartarse with a whiteboard and a pointy thing or whatever.  Overhead projector thingies, possibly.  They have been around a long time, haven't they?

I'm sort of glad to hear that it's true, though.  Smile   It just SOUNDS so "made up".   I would have heard this in mid 1980s, so I suppose it was old story then.  I still like it though.

Canny make up ma mind if you're bein a complete fucken racist or a Pandaist.

The Leithers are the wans who look like Panda's and that is because the only time they get clean is when it's raining and they are walking east and the cars going west hit the puddles along Great Junction Street. WTF

Addendumb: Not wanting to be a smartarse but I wis an Edinburgh University failure and did my second year of programming in the University building at the bottom of Constitution Street. I wis googling it recently and canny find wan mention of it.....  waaaah.

Apart frae that..... there wurny any fucking Panda's there either.... apart frae the dirty strip clubs across the road.
