Don't think it counts as a sign, but...


...and, please accept my apologies for using a cell phone to shoot this, my camera was at home...

Would someone please explain the joke to me? Does the number 01 have a secret meaning?

This item of equipment made me wonder how thoroughly people think through the names they give to their inventions.

I suspect the 'KKA' could be the critical item, but don't know either.

Perfectly harmless for a German company, producer of concrete pumps in this case.

But what did the town of St. Cloud / Minnesota think when naming their baseball stadium (external link)? :eek:

My try, no expert:
General Lee in the Dukes of Hazard was red and had the same style 01 on the doors (TV series, haven't seen the movie).

Putzmeister is a German company, and putz means plaster, or cement in this case. Their mobile pumps.
Yiddish putz means something else.

It took me a while to get it too, OhLook. Its kind of a reach. Its supposed to be a take off of the General Lee that the Dukes of Hazzard drove on the TV show.

I thought it was due to the seemingly incongruous text on the border of the tags reading "Eurocar Suzuki".

Thanks to the sitcom watchers for filling that gap in my background. "The Dukes of Hazzard" is one of many shows I never saw.

One doesn't necessarily have to watch to be aware. I was led to believe it was an important part of American culture, just by its presence in other media.

Then thanks to the culture watchers, too.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

Eight a.m. They want to ply you with wine for 10 hours straight.
