 Post subject: why dunny?
PostPosted: Wed May 12, 2004 6:59 pm 
What's the origin/derivation of the name 'Dunny'? '-unny' is clear enough, but just wondering about the 'D-'.<br>
<br>
Curious,<br>

I'd imagine that it's a combination of the words in the phrase "Dumb Bunny."<br>
<br>
Kinda run them together... and it also sounds like dummy to. <p></p><i></i>

Surely its from Dunny meaning homie, pal etc "You my dunny" and all that. Or perhaps from the Australian for toilet, tho I doubt that. I did a search for Dunnys on Ebay, got lots of outside toilet statues for sale, what on earth posed them to make those I dont know. English class is over, sorry for boring you. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p>you never know...</p><i></i>

The only thing that comes immediately to mind is that "D-" is for "designer" ... mebbe?<br>

My white rump has never heard this term used before. <br>

Alright, you guys were pretty close...<br>
<br>
The name came from a combination of 2 things:<br>
<br>
1. Street Slang. Dunny can be like 'homie', 'money'...wattup Dun Dunny?! It's been around for a while and has even popped up in a few Jay-Z songs. I think I've been in Crown Heights too long...<br>
<br>
and 2. DEVIL BUNNY! The original Dunny wasn't a mini firuge, but a big satan bunny with a skull face and a sickle. We just simplified it and kept the name.<br>
<br>
It's got a ring to it I guess...<br>
<br>
It was also important to have a name that is easy to say in many languages.<br>
<br>
Dunny? Wakarimasuka?<br>
<br>
Hai!<br>
<p></p><i></i>

I dont think necessarily there may have been much of a concept behind the name despite the fact that dunny rhymes with bunny and they are bunny-like in shape, the same kinda goes for why labbit and not rabbit.

I agree with u, just that I wanted to start the Fatcap collections, so I nicknamed them as Funny Fats.

Fatcaps is a graf term for the spray nozzles on a can... So since these are essentially just that it makes perfect sense... C'mon guys... know your stuff.
