Comments: I Did Not Know This

And, strangely enough, that's also what the thing in the shower is called. Must be a bathroom thing.

Hey good looking, go and look up some of your electric lines and see if you see a peckerhead. Enjoy, Cat.

Why yes, I do. A pet cock is a male chicken kept for companionship and/or amusement.

A "petcock" on the other hand is a small hand operated valve to release fluid, as from a sump.

Ignoramuses.

Actually, a Pet Cock is small hand operated valve to release fluid, as from a sump. Petcock is a very recent word, made from slurring the two original words "petit" and "cock" together.

Philistines.

Og is correct about a "pet cock." (as we discussed on the phone this evening, because you didn't believe Og.) Catfish also is not being (completely) obscene when he talks about an electrical "pecker head." That's a common term for a junction box, especially where the wires connect to a motor.

If you want to talk industrial dirty, I'm your guy.
