    And the still lesser-known Hoover dang.

    The Hoover dam happens when he pricks his finger with the needle.

    Hmmm. Doubt if it generates two megawatts. Maybe just a static electricity charge, instead?

    Why a HOOVER DARN?

    dheine1971, the Hoover dam was named after President Herbert Hoover.
    Back in the old days when someone would get a hole in their sock they would mend it through a process called darning.
    “Dam” and “damn” are homophones.
    “Darn” (as in, to darn a sock) and “darn” (as in, a milder expletive of “damn”) are homonyms.

    I could kill people with my wintertime static discharges…I actually had an apprentice at work ask if I was alright after she heard a “ZAP” from me opening a locker…from 20 feet away…in a machine shop…

    On the other hand, the Hoover Vacuum was quite well known. . . .

    The trick is to put a lightbulb in the sock when darning it.

    Used to be entertaining (if slow) to drive across Hoover Dam – now they’ve got that bridge to bypass it.
