I kind of like Gasquettard though. :p

It doesn't have to be just one word. It could be a phrase. Anyone knows any puns the media has made of Richard's name? We could make use of these. That's where "#_ on the Federer Express" originated, I think (i.e. from the media).

could only come up with "Gasquettard #_" but it's a little derogatory.
:haha:

Um, the only slogan I could think of plays off his last name, and it's rather rude, but so so obvious :angel:

Using the phrase "blow a gasket"... well, you do the changeup (gasket blower) and then assign yourself a number. I'm not going ot spell out ALL of my dirty jokes.

I will make it ot bed soon :p

:confused:

I'm afraid you'll have to spell it out. :p

Either I am too innocent to understand your dirty jokes or we don't use the expressions you are referring to over here. :angel:

Which part did I lose you at? The original phrase, my turning the phrase around, or the sexual inuendo that resulted?

I can spell my horrible joke out before bed, I suppose.

Starting with the original phrase would help. :lol:

Okay, I'll break it down.

There is an english phrase that goes "blow a gasket", which is the equvilant of saying "get really pissed off" or "get really angry and explode", etc. Now, from this you can create "blowing a gasket", which is basically the same thing. This is an awful pun that American commentators have been playing with since Gasquet came on the circuit. However, they, unlike me, have avoided taking that extra step and making it much worse than it ought to be.

So my suggestion was to turn the phrase around, and call yourself Gasket Blowers - or Gasquet Blowers. And you can all have numbers, just like the Fed people.

:angel:

To a native english speaker, gasket and Gasquet sound similar enough that it makes for a bad pun to interchange them as such... especially since a lot of native english speakers will be prone to prononouce the "t" in Gasquet anyways.

Strangely enough, I've never come across that phrase before. :p

Oh, and re-reading your post, I got your dirty joke. I guess I got too caught up in my confusion over what "blowing a gasquet" meant. :o

:yeah:

It was just such an obvious slogan (to me) that I couldn't let it pass without mention!

Think about it, Gasquetblower#1 :p

Now I'm really going to bed, even if I have to drag myself there by the ear.

Believe it or not, English is my first language. :ras:

I'm much more comfortable speaking it than Mandarin (which is supposed to be my mother tongue) or French (my 3rd language).

BTW, which gender do you think I belong to? :o

Your english is dandy, though I didn't think it was your first language. I just assumed it wasn't based on where you said you lived, though I realize that was a bad assumption to make. Regardless, there are regional differences, so it was worth pointing that stuff out. Maybe people where you live aren't stupid enough to call him Gas-kett :p

I assumed you were male, but I don't know why you were assigned that particular gender. You just were.

Last time I told somebody that I thought they were a guy they were like "EVERYBODY SAYS THAT ALKJASLKDS" and I was like "whoa.... won't be answering THAT question again"
