Bonnet

CRAIGJFIFTY3 | 18. juli 2019

I knew that, I just felt this forum could use some levity.

I was almost gonna say nice try......

Wellll, if one has a AWD Telsa, then it is still a "hood" or as the Brits call it a bonnet, since there is a motor upfront which is what a hood/bonnet traditionally covers...............

@steevsteevsteev: Nice!!

We have also agreed a while ago in this forum to call the Well area in the frunk the "Wunk" ("Woot" for our Brits friends). Wunking the Woot.

Kudos on some very nice levity!

Why the hell do they call it a bonnet? Isn’t that something people put on their heads? I am seriously confused.

I prefer trunk and frunk, FTR . . .

Food?

Grow some Frunk of your own, Beatle.

@BuffaloBillsFan: It's their language, they invented it. Sweater=pullover, elevator=lift, favor=favour, and weird (to the US types) conjugations of what happens when somebody gets injured and sent to a hospital.
If you really want to see something, check out one of the official language of Papua New Guinea: It's "tok pisin", as in "talk pidgin English". Fun.

@tron,
In English 1.0: Sweater = Jumper actually.
Of course, we Americans (English 2.0) Park in our Driveways and Drive on our Parkways so what do we know.

Yes, we here in Australia call the front boot the froot.

vmulla | 18. juli 2019

Not foot?

SalisburySam | 19. juli 2019

@inconel, I was told that if one wunked to much they would go blind. Fortunately for me, I can still see.

We step on the gas to accelerate, but hit the brakes to slow down.

English is weird. lol

boot <-> foot. trunk <-> frunk.

One refers to it as The Queen's English

When did one ever place one's gloves in one's glovebox?

The hood is really the roof.
