I was reading my favourite food blog, "Just Hungry" (instead of practicing piano for my lesson in two hours), and I came across a mention of this German houseware company named "Koziol". Now, in Russian this word means "goat", but could also be used to double as "idiot" or "stupid" "Ну и козел!"—"Gee, what an idiot!") I thought it's just a similar sounding word, and it means something else in German, but I went to check out their website, and here you have it:

I guess they really did mean "goat". Heh, it's just too funny. I wonder if they actually knew about the connotations of the word when they decided to name their company like that...
