Yes, "yank-job" sounds like it could be dirty. But it's not. - ErWenn, 2007-06-06: 01:09:00

Oh, it's still dirty, all right. Maybe not in the context you've provided, but rest assured: use of the term predates this discussion by decades. - Clayton, 2007-06-06: 07:15:00

Those yanks were always a bit dodgy! - galwaywegian, 2007-06-06: 07:25:00

As always, the best word here. - Osomatic, 2007-06-06: 13:22:00
