Onan (my dirty mind's point of view)

Right, I’m now working for a local company translating operation and maintenance manuals of some Diesel generator sets. One funny thing is the name of the assembler, Onan. You know, Onan as that guy who starred in the Bible supposedly getting off (though what he did was more like interrupted intercourse).

This thing alone isn’t funny, but then I went on and found the name of the manufacturers of the generator sets and their engines. Cummins Power Generation and Cummins Inc. The later owns Onan as a subsidiary.

Onan, Cummins… I wonder what these guys had in mind when they created these companies.

Someone probably was, and had a great laugh.

Yes, but can you read anything by e e cummings with a straight face? :smiley:
