    So, we are trying for the opposite of lemon....then I propose "Glock".

    I missed it. Did Lemons become a protected group? Hate speech or hate crime applications? If I join the cause do I get a button to wear? T-shirts or bumper stickers? Who will out Hollywood spokesman be? Will we have hot chic's protesting nude, like PETA does, in front of Congress protesting lemon laws for besmirching lemons? That would be cool.

    I always say "Man, that is a Kiwi of a deal!" or "That's just Mango!"

    Not really. I am going with some of the others mentioned.

    Whoa! As a proud owner of two Harleys and a confirmed believer in steel and aluminum guns, I take offense at comparing a Harley to "tupperware"!!!!!!

    BTW, even though I don't like Glocks, I would never offend a Glock owner by comparing his gun to a "rice burning" Honda, Suzy, Yamaha (even though they make guitars and pianos too)!

    Not even the Yugo automobile got the term "lemon" applied to it, it was so bad. Perhaps instead of calling something a "lemon" we could call it a Yugo.

    Up the lemon! Down the Yugo!

    I originally was going to compare it to an F-150 but at the last minute I went with Harley.

    I know how Glock owners are fanatical aout their guns so I thought I would liven things up a bit.
