The oldies are always the best - I have lost count of the number of times I have seen this in newspaper articles about funny product titles

My visitors have been taking home Plopps every since i have lived in Sweden just so they can say "fancy a plopp" to their mates

The Edet "Dubbel Kräpp" toilet paper was also taken home by many wink.gif

In fact we have threads on here dating back 7 years

Thanks for the laugh Byke! biggrin.gif

My family always requests Plopps too lol. Even though it's not a brand, dad couldn't stop giggling at the infart and utfart signs either when he was here visiting.

Don't forget the erotic cat food:

There are now also ones called "Pussi: tropical", "Pussi: exotic" and, my favourite "Pussi: meaty sensations."

All are, of course, "as good as it looks."

Somebody at that company has to be taking the piss.

And just for laughs, some of the English used on here by lesser knowledgeable posters. So be careful when extracting the urine of other nations. cool.gif

For those of us who don't speak British, care to explain what's so funny about plop(p)?

The only dictionary definition that I can find matches the Swedish meaning: Sound of thing falling into water. In fact, Swedish seems to have borrowed it from English in the early 20th century.

Edit: Wiktionary to the rescue

(UK) slang for excrement, derived from the "plop" sound made when the former hits water in a toilet.
