If you don't watch silly japanese cartoons you wouldn't have any problems with the abbreviation POCO.

FTFY

By the way, since we're already talking, do you want to buy a rifter? I've got the cheapest rifters in Metropolis. If you can find a cheaper rifter, buy it!

A POS becomes PS then? I stick to POCOs, my tongue, even in my mind, is grateful for that additional O. Big smile

For some reason the Japanese kids think it endearing (or so animators believe, at least) when a character ends their sentences with a set phrase. For instance, every once in a while you'll see a bear-like character in an anime show ending their sentences with "kuma" which means "bear" in Japanese. I'm not sure what the deal with "poko" is but it seems to be related to some sound that racoon dogs supposedly make in Japanese folklore legends by beating on their inflated stomachs, or something to that effect.

There is this part where it just stares at you right before saying POCO, its breathtaking.


Oh and by the way, I loved when the youtube video just bleared poco right throughout my office.
