Here at the Mill, we are pretty metal. Heavy metal. Mainly because we have a lot of old heavy metal things around the shop. We probably aren’t the only folks who’ve experienced the smell of your hands after touching something metallic.
This also brings us back to the title of this post. Pong. We also know that folks on the other side of the ocean in places like Britain and Australia have ways of saying things that Americans find quirky – no doubt vice versa in those places. The word “pong” is used to describe a something stinky, like if you were to say “Phew, Grandma’s breath has a real pong and her mustache scratches me when she kisses my cheek.”
