No, this is not highbrow. Sue me. Two caveats: In spite of the "all of these are real companies" claim, several of these do not appear to be real sites, just amusing. Second, this is not original to me. CPS sent it to me in an email. He didn't make it up either. It's the internet, for heaven's sake.
All of these are legitimate companies that didn't spend quite enough time
considering how their online names might appear .... and be misread.
1. Who Represents is where you can find the name of the agent that
represents any celebrity. Their Web site is www.whorepresents.com
2 . Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at www.expertsexchange.com
3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at http://www.penisland.net (From their site: "We understand many customers want to test-drive before considering a larger order." I bet.)
4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at http://www.therapistfinder.com
5. There's the Italian Power Generator company, http://www.powergenitalia.com
6. And don't forget the Mole Station Native Nursery in New South Wales , www.molestationnursery.com. (Their motto: "What you need, when you need it." That's just nasty.)
7. If you're looking for IP computer software, there's always www.ipanywhere.com
8. The First Cumming Methodist Church Web site is www.cummingfirst.com (And how long
will they wait for the SECOND cumming?)
9. And the designers at Speed of Art await you at their wacky Web site, www.speedofart.com
UPDATE: A source, sort of. It's kind of old. Still, some of them made me laugh...
And, on that site one finds this: http://www.mofo.com/ A law firm. No, really.
And, for a variant on one of the biblical miracles....http://www.ipwine.com
And, if you are afraid of the running of the Bulls, do it for your lady friend:
