"Okay, my density is showing again; why "saab"? The similarity to "S.O.B."? frogprince

I'm wondering too. I've never heard it expressed as one word.

A by the by: in Juneau a number of local buildings and places are known by descriptive names.

For instance, a 70-acre parcel of mine tailings shored up by retaining walls where a number of oil tanks and industrial buildings are installed is known as "the rock dump".

The Department of Labor building that has an unfortunate siding is called "the Plywood Palace".

A silver-sided tall building with recurrent red lateral stripes is known as "the Spam Can".

The State Office Building is - you guessed it - "the S.O.B."
