100 Website Naming Disasters

Postby Chief Slurler » July 17th, 2009, 3:38 pm

To celebrate the milestone of 100 URLs with unintentional double meanings, I have collected them all together in one A-Z list. :roll:

A quick summary of the Slurls "rules":

1. There’s a website AND
2. It’s an active website AND
3. There’s a double meaning AND
4. It’s not deliberate

  • If an URL meets all the rules it's a Genuine Slurl (Genuine)
  • If an URL met the rules in the past it's a Slurl That Has Ceased To Be (Ceased)
  • If an URL nearly meets the rules it's a Slurl That Misses The Mark (Misses)

The street sign for the Amigone funeral home (#5) has been well known in Buffalo (and on the web) for years. What makes it even more amusing is that (at least in the 1980's) the Bury funeral home was located just a few blocks away.

There used to be this store I passed on the way to school from my home (it no longer exists) that had a website corresponding to the store name, and EVERY time I read it I couldn't help but read it the wrong way...

icup and bendover are pretty obviously deliberate. Ben Dover is fairly well known and uses that name as a consumer advocate on purpose. And icup for a comedy site.. come on now.

Some of those only need capitalization, like childrensLaughter or chooseSpain (I'm assuming they didn't mean childrenSlaughter or choosesPain). Of course, if someone went to Spain for the running of the bulls, both meanings would be appropriate.

In lower Alabama along the Florida border is a furniture company called Badcock...not only is it funny because its right down the road from a resturant called Blitches..so you can get badcock and bitches on the same road. But their website is also www.badcock.com and their HTML title reads "Welcome to Badcock & More".....if the cock was bad..would you want more?

You should add http://www.cummingsingles.com/. It is a local dating site in Cumming GA. I have the pleasure of seeing small sides for this site along the road side. I still get a good chuckle.
