    For God's sake!

    I know it may have sounded like a good idea to run a "cock gag" theme (wranking-cock, downloader-small-coc and now this), but surely there's only so much cock you can expect us to take in one day?

    Oops, sorry....

    Only one meaning

    Just a little more info on this exciting topic. Unlike "cock", "хуй" has only one meaning. It is meant to be a vulgar word in all contexts. Also, it means the same thing in other slavic languages as well - so many peoples can now rejoice in seeing their favorite word in Yahoo maps !

    I'm all for it. While some may argue this was a pointless stunt, it is also harmless. And, in my opinion, funny and amusing...
