    Browsing through my latest Home Hardware catalogue, I stumbled across a product whose name seemed pretty stupid, so I thought we could share.

    The product: Mustee Shower Stall

    Just what I always wanted!

    Got you beat. I saw this in a local supermarket and bought one just to scan the label into my computer and send it to friends. :

    Okay, you win, but I don't know that I'd want to admit that you beat me with.... um, anyway, keep 'em coming...that doesn't sound right either! [​IMG]

    What about Jamaican Jerk?

    Whenever I hear that, I get this mental image of a little dude in dreadlocks, wearing the world's loudest zoot suit and saying, "Hey, mon, I'm de baddest muddah f--kah on de island, mon!"

    Meanwhile, there's a similar thread over on the B5 TV forum that has some more potential winners.

    Regards,

    Found this wile surfing

    The dangers of double meanings
    The Coco Rocks concept was initially launched outside the UK without mishap. But it follows in a long line of international brands which don't translate well to new markets. Like these that caught our fancy:

    Spunk - Danish sweet bar
    Zit Lemon-lime - Greek soft drink
    Colon Plus Liquid - Spanish detergent
    Polio - Czech detergent
    Krapp - Swedish toilet paper
    Homo Sausage Beef jerky - Japan
    Mucos - Japanese soft drink
    Pansy - Chinese men's underwear
    Fockink - Dutch liqueur
    Pshitt - French soft drink

    Unfortunately I have sampled the last item while on a vacation in France!

    NUF SAID!!!

    Joe, I laughed so hard at that and I'll bet the servings are more than a mouthful. Are you going to use it at home?
