  1. you know, when i created my own blog, my major decision was what to name it, given that the url is so important. this decision, admittedly, took a number of months to make (to the enjoyment of my “friends”). but, i think that many peeps misunderstand the importance of the url – as evidenced above.

    this makes me think though: is the humour in these names only evident to native english speakers? so, if i use english as my linga franca, will i see the humour in the url names?

    (I am assuming that none of those companies changed their urls – this extra publicity is great for them!)

  2. @S – You’re right, I think it’s probably only evident to those who use English as their main language or are at least well versed in it. I doubt that any of them would have changed their domain names as they would get initial hits to their sites, but no follow-through once a visitor arrived, thinking the domain name was funny and then realising it had nothing to do with the humerous way of reading the name.
