Product Names

My Fellow Comedists,

Let's think about some unintended commercial comedy this weekend. The most famous example, of course, is the Chevy Nova, which did not sell well in Spanish speaking countries, translating to "doesn't go." Less well-known is the great success of the first eppisode of "Joanie Loves Chachi" when shown in South Korea. The term "chachi" in Korean refers to the male genitalia. TheWife takes a daily dose of the enzyme CoQ10+. Not sure what it does, but her sudden interest in learning French makes me a little nervous.

Other brands with odd, funny, or inappropriate names?

Live, love, and laugh,

Irrevend Steve
