Reminds me of the guy that was going to open up a whorehouse and run it by hand until he got some women.

G-R-O-A-N!! :P I'll see you hand joke and raise you another variation:

I heard running a brothel was more like doing the laundry...if it's a small load you can just do it by hand!

As Barczar would say, "if you want to play with the big dogs you can't pee like a little puppy"

Indeed, you can also find this abbreviation at acronym finder.

http://www.acronymfinder.com/acronym.aspx?rec={99296FA1-89E8-11D4-8351-00C04FC2C2BF}

But this is a very unusual abbreviation for company and I have never seen it before. As you can see when you use such terms your thread is liable to go off topic.

Louis,

Still peeing like a puppy huh! Took you all that time to find that. Tell me about your MACHO military service.

As a former CWO chopper pilot in the NAM, I never saw company abbreviated like that and apparently if you did local NS you never did either (course that's not really Army either is it)

http://www.militarywords.com/result.aspx?term=COY sorta has to make you wonder....... :wink: Maybe the guy who made the website didn't know how to abbreviate? I've never seen it used in the US (SE's link shows it to be more business or finance but in over 20 years of business and taxation in the US and here in Singapore I've never seen it used at all. Has to be obscure to say the least. Course if he is a coy escort he's going to remind pretty obscure as well. :roll:

local military uses coy as a short form for company. You can treat it as a form of singlish. Its just one of language barrier isnt it? why kicking a big fuse over it? Relax guys

It's not singlish, nor is it only common in Singapore. Coy. is a recognised abbreviation for Company relating to business and military. Probably just not used as much anymore, but definitely still around and acceptable. :wink:
