What’s in a Name?


This was too good, not to post. H.T. to court reporter chick for this one. Enjoy!

All of these are legitimate companies that didn’t spend quite enough time considering how their online names might appear .. and be misread.

These are not made up. Check them out yourself

1. “Who Represents” is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity.  Their Web site is www.whorepresents.com (I’m thinky some lacey lingerie)

2 . Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at  www.expertsexchange.com (they say that change is good, right?)

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at www.penisland.net (I think I know some people who shop here)

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at www.therapistfinder.com (this could be helpful to those profiler guys)

5. There’s the Italian Power Generator company, www.powergenitalia.com (I know they say Italians are the best lovers but…)

6. And don’t forget the Mole Station Native Nursery in www.molestationnursery.com (those poor plants, imagine the trauma)

7. If you’re looking for IP computer software, there’s always www.ipanywhere.com (lol – me too, anybody going to make a diaper joke here?)

8. The First Cumming Methodist Church Web site is  www.cummingfirst.com (so much for abstinence)

9. And the designers at Speed of Art await you at their wacky Web site, www.speedofart.com (I didn’t know that speedos could fart

So the moral to this story is choose your names wisely and get good proofreaders! 😉  WC

  1. I saw these a while ago.
    Phunny, phunny.
    Great pic, reminds me of Ren and Stimpy.

    Yeah, I love the run like an idiot race – I think I laughed harder about that then the names.


  2. Seen ’em before, but still make be laugh a barrel. Some people just lack common sense, eh?

    Apparently, I’m late to the party. They were new to me. 😉


  3. And by common sense I meant something along the lines of a double entendre sensor.

    I understood that. And right you are. 😉


  4. haha these are fun. pen island does it for me. How silly can you be when you do not check your name before hand. Proofreaders are mostly bypassed since we tend to think we can do it ourselves!

    Well RW, you and I are the only ones who haven’t seen them before. Yes the island of pens is quite the funny bone tickler. 😉


  5. LMFAO….these are too good! I haven’t seen them before, but loved them!!

    LOL – now there are three of us who have been out of the loop. They are a scream, huh?


  6. When I was pregnant with my first, I was teaching elementary school-5th grade. One day for a short exercise I wrote my child’s intentded name on the board and asked the class to make fun of it. When they couldn’t come up with anything, I knew our name would carry our daughter through the morass of the public school system and all its cruelties.
    Kinda thinkin that’s what these people should have done. How, as a pastor, do you tell people that church’s web address from the pulpit, and not lose it? And they’re Methodists!

    Wow, what a great idea. I wish some of my friends had had the benefit of your wisdom. Ah..but that’s another story. Yes, the church really didn’t seem to think proofreading would be a good idea. Yikes.


  7. Jeeezzzzz, I thought this had to be a joke and when I clicked the link – they were actually websites; NO WAY!!! BAHAHAHAHAH! Good Lord! People! 😉

    Yah, and they think we’re stupid. 😆


  8. I enjoyed this so much (found you through Summer’s child). I hope to read more of your blog soon. 🙂

    Hi St. J!
    Nice to see you here. Glad you got a laugh. I’ll swing by your place for a peek soon. Okay?


  9. Wickedly funny, WC. It’s amazing anyone could go through the whole process of setting up a domain and not see what’s apparent in a second.

    Reminds me of the email photo that passed around recently of sign outside a flowership in Indiana that had trouble advertising their peonies. Left off the ‘o’ and the second ‘e’.

    How in the world do you walk away from a sign ofering to sell “penis” by the dozen? And so cheaply?

    It could make one feel that masculinity was devalued …

    Oh my, a bouquet of penis’s? What kind of foilage would they use with that? And on whom would you bestow it? A man or a woman? And for what occasion? The mind boggles on that one.

    Hey, there is a chinese restaurant in my town called Poo Ping Palace. It must be something nifty in China but I guess they never bothered to find out if Americans like pooping where they eat. 😆


  10. There are some absolute classics out there!!! I’ve seen some corkers in my time, but I have to say of these ones I totally love the first one the best!

    For me, it’s a toss up between speedo farts and i. p. anywhere. 😆


  11. That is the reason my domain name is exactly what it is, and one of my others has a – (dash) in it. I didn’t want the words to run together and spell something stupid.

    good thinking.
