Re: Unfortunate brand names

When i was little, my parents used to buy Pschiit lemonade in France.

Made my Dad laugh for years.

"Want a glass of Pshhiiit with your steak?!

Ha Ha !!!

It's hilarious to see all the Spanish and Latin Americans in Australia take group photo's around these 4WD's

I can't believe Mitsubishi persists with the name (let alone the model)

Funnily enough "Pajero driver" in English translates to English as "Wanker"

Audi is also German for the word Cock

We saw this in a shop near Baden last summer..
There's a place in Hoxton, London called Charlie Wright's international bar that specializes in pussy based cocktails. It is famed amongst connoisseurs for its rendition of the Pussy Bomb and Pussy Galore drinks.

Last time I was there we arrived quite late and the bartender greeted us thusly: "We've ran out of pussies lads, I had the last one half an hour ago!". I was in tears.
