D. Wanka Shirt Rocks!

Last year, the shirt of Peruvian soccer team D. Wanka (the D is for Deportivo or Spanish for "sport") became all the rage in the United Kingdom.

The team, however, didn't get the joke:

The team is, according to UK tabloid The Sun, named after the Wanka tribe which once occupied Huancayo. A spokeswanka said: "It is very strange. Everyone in Britain seems to think we have a funny name." The team's ignorance of the true meaning of its delicious moniker was confirmed by Subside Sports, which punts the kit online. "The club just doesn’t get the joke," the e-commerce operation admitted.
