LOST Thoughts (and video) : Sawyer Nickname Origin # 27

In Confidence Man (Season One), Sawyer tells Kate that he was just tortured by a spinal surgeon and “a jen-yoo-wine Iraqi ” .

Now, genuine typically signifies “real , authentic, sincere, legitimate” . And that is what is the case here. Sayid …actually from Iraq. Sawyer’s just put a Bit O’ Flare on it, going for the funny (as Sawyer is prone to do ) šŸ™‚

But then there is the “jen-yoo-wine” that is used in advertising that is a bit more “non-descript” , for lack of a better word šŸ˜‰ : Genuine leather…genuine gold leaf…genuine Elvis fragrances (?) .

Here’s a video of one of the best “jen-yoo-wine” products of the 80’s . I got one of these for a present a while back….but I didn’t get the bamboo steamer with it šŸ˜¦ .
