    Thingy - part of the Male anatomy. Contrary to what NOOBs think, it has no place in the MB world, unless you are riding your MB and meet someone hot then it is all relevant to MBs.

    Whopper Stopper - Product by Grubee, Inc. and sold by BlowbyU. Also what happens when your date isn't the sex that you think they are. Viagra won't help.

    Axle in the Bottom Bracket - Uh, I leave it to your imagination, but most of the time it is called the crank.
