Ordinarily, I don't pass emails along...

...but this one was too good not to share!

Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today's world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as others see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn't give their domain names enough consideration:

1. A site called 'Who Represents' where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name is...

www.whorepresents.com

2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at
www.expertsexchange.com

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at...
www.penisland.net

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at...
www.therapistfinder.com

5. Then of course, there's the Italian Power Generator company...
www.powergenitalia.com

6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales (that's in Australia)...
www.molestationnursery.com

7. If you're looking for computer software, there's always...
www.ipanywhere.com

8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is...
www.cummingfirst.com

9. Then, of course, there's these brainless art designers, and their wacky website...
www.speedofart.com

10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at...
www.gotahoe.come

All this reminds me of a radio commercial for water conservation I've been hearing. It features two smartass couples getting together socially and talking about how one couple wastes water. Most of it is just your basic stupid written-for-commercials banter, but the first line, when the male member of one couple welcomes the other couple into his home, is classic:

"You're just in time for Betty's Tunnel of Fudge!"

I'm a sick puppy. I know it.

But so are you. You laughed, didn't you?

Hahahaha! I like how advertisers here are always putting a bit of risque material in their ads. Stuff that wouldn't have made it past the censors even twenty years ago.

MrScribbler said...

dal -- the commercial the "tunnel of fudge" line came from is otherwise so dimwitted that I doubt the double-entendre occurred to anyone involved with it.

Besides...I had a visitor here yesterday who was directed in from google during a search for "tunnel of fudge...."

Makes me want to ykbkdg....
