I lived in Wilhelmshaven for a few years and was killing myself laughing when I saw this bunch down at the harbour. Some how only the English people caught on what I was laughing about. I mean really...that encourages me to go to them. FU you forever!!!!

Re: Obscene company names

Oh and unbelievably, the Swiss company that makes this E-Type copy have called it 'The Growler' - i mean seriously, did no one, at any point during research, production & marketing, go "err, hang on a min..."

Apparently there is a guy who wants to open a brewery there.
The "Hell" beer he wants to call:

The town is against it though.

Well, during the sales period you see big 'Sales' signs everywhere in Romandie.

Considering that 'sale' means 'dirty' in French, it's hilarious
In Sweden at sales time they put signs in the shop windows saying "Slut"
