There is another sense in both verb and noun meaning to promote, often to self-promote, or an instance of this. Somebody being interviewed on radio or TV will often promote their new book, CD, etc. — Hippietrail 12:39, 3 Oct 2004 (UTC)

The Portuguese translation for plug (noun sense 1) seems incorrect. I am pretty sure that tomada is outlet and not plug. Vivafelis 12:33, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

I think in Brazil a tomada can be short for plugue de tomada: O sistema deve ser montado em um gabinete conforme especificação ATX 2.0; com fonte de 250 W, entrada selecionável em 110/220V (faixas de 110-127V e 220-240V), 60 Hz, tomada elétrica de entrada (macho) de 3 pinos (NEMA 5/15), tomada elétrica de saída (fêmea) para alimentação. Probably better to say plugue. —Stephen 11:27, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

ugly[edit]

I've seen the word (noun) "plug" used in the sense of "plug (adverb) ugly": "Joni's lush, but Kylie's a plug." The Bash Street Kids has a character called Plug, but whether the definition of "ugly" for "plug" is derived from this, or whether he was given this name because he was ugly, I have not a clue. --Matt Westwood (talk) 05:01, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
