There was a hinayana...they're gone now for many centuries. People that intentionally use 'hinayana' for 'Theravada' are confused and silly.
No school of Buddhism called itself hinayana -- the discarded/garbage -- vehicle. Hinayana is at its root an ugly term of derision coined by the Mahayana. The term has its place within the Mahayana, but it is not an appropriate term for describing schools of Buddhism outside the Mahayana.
As Reginald Ray states in his Indestructible Truth
In fact, as we shall see presently, "Hinayana" refers to a critical but strictly limited set of views, practices, and results. The pre-Mahayana historical traditions such as the Theravada are far richer, more complex, and more profound than the definition of "Hinayana" would allow. ...The tern "Hinayana" is thus a stereotype that is useful in talking about a particular stage on the Tibetan Buddhist path, but it is really not appropriate to assume that the Tibetan definition of Hinayana identifies a venerable living tradition as the Theravada or any other historical school.."

Now that we sadly almost all missed bhante's joke, back to the topic at hand, please.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
