Top Ten Names for Things Which Need a Rethink

I've explained why some of these things need to be renamed in my comments.

The Top Ten

1 Fukuppy

I'm sure PETA will find a problem with that. Maybe protest against the Osaka based industry. Who knows! - Kiteretsunu

Fukuppy is the mascot for the Osaka-Based Fukushima Industries, who created the name of the mascot from the words "Fukushima" and "Happy". There is, however, one small problem with that. - PositronWildhawk


Economists refer to the four countries which have been affected the most by the Eurozone crisis as the PIGS: Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Spain. Given that Greece is the most likely of the four to go bankrupt, with Greece gone, you're left with PIS. - PositronWildhawk

So the PIGS will PIS, if Greece left the union (sorry if anyone got offended. It's only a joke) - Kiteretsunu

3 Vizualtech Growler

I remember seeing the faces on each individual Top Gear presenter the night they announced the release of this car. I can imagine a buyer asking whether it's spacious in their Growler. - PositronWildhawk

4 Siri

Oh No! In Tamil it means "laugh" - paasadani

"Siri" is a slang term in the Georgian language for "penis". Would it be wrong if I said that I frequently open my Siri with my iPod Touch? - PositronWildhawk

Haha love this. Yes, Pos, it would be wrong and sound quite bizarre... But still hilarious! - Britgirl

5 Nokia Lumia

This loosely translates into Spanish as "prostitute". - PositronWildhawk

6 Bangkok, Thailand Bangkok is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. It is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or simply Krung Thep.
7 Crapstone, Devon, England

The excuse is that the place was founded before the word "crap". - PositronWildhawk

8 Ass Pearls

These are some kind of sweets. But I wouldn't eat them given that name. - PositronWildhawk

9 Urinal Tea

Only if restaurants start making instant urinal tea. *Suspicion*. - Kiteretsunu

10 Cock Macaroni

Come to think of it, they do have similarity in shapes. - Kiteretsunu

The combination of words is what gets to me! - PositronWildhawk
