Thread: Things that rhyme with ANSI, and related acronyms

    Default Things that rhyme with ANSI, and related acronyms

    Haven't seen a thread on this yet, so this is for all the weirdos, creative types, and those with a sense of humor out there. That should cover pretty much all of us in one way or another.

    For months on end now, every time I see "ANSI", I can't help thinking of rhymes like ANSI in your pantsy, or acronyms like A Nice Sizeable Instrument (try to keep the Freudian comments to a minimum... lol). ANSI schmancy, dancy with your ANSI, the list goes on.

    Because the weirdest of things will give me an idea for a new light, I'm now planning on getting a small, pocketable ANSI rated light to mod just to name it ANSI Pants.

    Who else has had these, ummm, inspirations? Even those named Nancy can post about ANSI!

    I can't see any post from Nancy.

    Maybe she's busy at Pitt and Delancey?

    A fitting end to this thread I suppose.

    Not as many of us as I thought.

    Edit: guess it didn't strike your fancy?

    I need motives to produce emotives

    The ANSI motives weren't lighting any votives

    Hence the lack of Fancy ANSItives.

    Well, on a slightly related note . . . .


    When Fenix had their L0P-SE model flashlight,
    it would always remind me of " Floppsy, Moppsy, and Cotton Tail ".



    -- and --


    Whenever I see anything about the battery chargers named Maha,
    i always think about The 3 Stooges !


    " Maha -- Ah-ha "


    " Niagara Falls ! ! ! "

    " Slowly I stepped, inch by inch . . . "



    Surely, I can't be the ONLY one ? ? ?

    The exact sentiment thinly veiled in my OP.

    No, you're not the only one... though I'd be careful of calling people Shirley.

    I recall a poem written in the DOS days of the '70s or '80s. It used ANSI, NANSI, YANSI, etc. It rhymed many of the named standards of the day. I wish I could find it. I think I saw it in...one of those old things...a book.

    When the guv-mint starts regulating how we market lighting devices, it gets me feeling kinda ansi.

    In my head I always read li-ion as 'lion', like the big ferocious kitty. I have to be sure not to pronounce it that way out loud to someone or else I'm sure I'd get a strange look. Stranger than the look I'll already be getting for talking about battery chemistries.
