A Poor Choice of Names

Instead of a post about my life today, I have decided, for the sake of brevity, to post a list of the funninest thing I found at work yesterday, under a heading I like to call...

Tales of Unfortunate URLs!

This travel site urging visitors to Choose Spain can also be read as "Chooses Pain" - doesn't sound like a fun vacation to me. www.choosespain.com

For a gambling site, the Odds Exchange sounds like a great name, but put those words together and what do you get? www.oddsexchage.com

Trying to find out which agency represents your favourite celebrity? the "Who Represents?" web site will tell you... plus sell you gifts for your favourite streetwalker? www.whorepresents.com

Next is the Experts Exchange, a place where computer programmers can
exchange advice and views, or possibly release that woman/man trapped in a man/woman's body. www.expertsexchange.com

Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island. This is the site that got me started on this whole thing. http://www.penisland.net/

If you're looking for a therapist, try this site. http://www.therapistfinder.com/ At least I hope that's what you're trying to find...

And there's also Mole Station Native Nursery, from Australia. http://www.molestationnursery.com/ (No link since they got wise and changed their name to Mole River Nurseries... but think of all the traffic they're missing!)

The British utility company Power Gen released a statement distancing them from their similarly-named counterparts in Italy, http://www.powergenitalia.com I can't imagine why... it sounds like just the thing for a power company.

And just to follow up my last post, the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Colorado Avalanche last night by a score of 5-2. Woo-Hoo! Now THAT looked like the Canucks we all know and love. They worked for that win and it showed. Can't wait for Boston!

The therapist site reminds me of an Arrested Development episode when one of the characters describes the hybrid profession he created...one of an analytical therapist. He had business cards typed up and everything, but could not understand why no one called him. It read analrapist.
