A truck went by on the highway behind my house this morning and got me thinking that people really should put more thought behind what they are saying with their product. Be it a slogan, product name, whatever.



Is this an admonition? A product that can improve my relationship? What?

Then there's Coors Light Iced Tea:



Are these people unfamiliar with acronyms? They really should put more thought into what they're putting out there. There's always deviant asshats like myself that their minds just go there.

And that's without considering what names will sound like in other languages.
France has, or used to have (this is a memory from 1969), a soft drink sold under the brand name Pschit. It left a sherbet taste in the mouth.

I remember a Jeffrey giraffe inflatable that was a bit phallic.

Fort Wayne has a pro baseball team called the tin caps as an homage to Jonny appleseed. Their mascot is a man with a pot on his head,,
Basically they are the fort wayne pot heads.

But this is also the city that considered building the harry baals "pronounced balls" center a few years ago.

There is Realtor around my parts named Jim Swindle....

I had an Chinese guy interning for me one year. He walks up and introduced himself... his name was Long Dong. Dead serious. We told him we were going to call him Mike.

There's a chain of barbecue restaurants in California (not sure if it's nation wide), called Dickey's. No pic but there was one opening by my house and the sign said "Dickey's coming soon".

Even though my hubs is allergic to dairy and has a reaction every single time he eats ice cream, he still eats it. Magnum's caramel bars are his faaaaavorite thing ever, the wheezing & hives and everything is worth it, he says.

One time when he bought them, after we got home, he handed me one to try. I just looked at it in my hand and said, "Every time I see these, I think condoms, man."

Bastard snatched the bar right back and glared at me. I guess it's a forbidden snacks devotion thing XD
