Talking Funniest Transformer name.

Just a novelty thread - there are a lot of (presumably) unintentionally humorous TF names out there, from Erector to Windbreaker. The only ones that immediately spring to mind for me are Discharge, Erector, Slapper, Slag, Backwind and Windbreaker, though I'm sure there are many others which those more knowledgable than me will add. Even non-toilet-humor names like Ratbat, Horri-bull and Fangry are pretty silly when you stop and think about it.

Which one/s do you think is/are the funniest?

Scattor - Not funny but his name could be interpreted that he shoots poop at people.

Hun-Grrr, not exactly funny, but a play on words so to speak.

Hotrod - rude connotations

Hooligan - I dunno I just find that word funny

I must admit, I chuckled a bit when I saw a Transformer on the shelf called 'Dropkick' from the last Bay-verse movie line.

Alan, Kirk, Abel and Rodney.

Also: Hawkbreast, Bisonbreast, Eaglebreast, Jaguarbreast, Lionbreast, Rhinobreast, Tigerbreast and Koumoribreast (Koumori means "bat" in Japanese - so it's basically "Batbreast"). Then there's Death Cobra's unnamed partner, whose name was probably something unimaginative like Cobrabreast. Or maybe it was something different like Serpentboobs.

Kup is also a weird name. WTF is a "kup"?! (o_O)

Then there's moments of Fail English, like Beast Wars' Lazorbeak (someone forgot how to spell laser) and Wind Sheer (should be spelt "Wind Shear")

It's still weird, and the first thing I always thought of as a kid was something to hold my beverage in. I know they were trying to be clever, but I don't know if it worked that well.

And then there's Arcee.

I think Flint Dille thought the same thing, hence the gag in Five Faces Of Darkness about him being Teaspoon, Cybertron's chief dishwasher.

After seeing the film, until I read her profile in #4 of Transformers Universe, I thought her name was R.C. as in 'remote controlled' or 'radio controlled'. Not a big step forward for feminism, as Furman obliquely 'commented' on in TFUK #234.
