Unfortunately for a number of companies, the dawn of the URL has converted their previously innocent names into double entendres, resulting in internet gems such as www.molestationnursery.com (The former internet home of the Mole Station Nursery).
Author Andy Geldman has created a compendium of some of the funniest ‘slurls’ or slur URLs in his new book Slurls: They Called Their Website What?
Geldman told the Telegraph ‘In a world without spaces we mentally insert out own. And you might not stick yours where I stick mine.’
Some of the funniest web addresses:
Big Al’s - a bowling alley in Vancouver chose www.ilovebigals.com
La Drape, a British company selling bedding supplies opted for www.ladrape.co.uk
‘Powergen’ Italia - a fake website claiming to be the Italian homepage for the company is listed at www.powergenitalia.com
Speed of Art - Art collective, or a bizarre ‘Speedo Fart’ contraption? Find out at www.speedofart.com
The American Scrap Metal company settled on - www.angelfire.com/al/americanscrapmetal
FUNNY BUT INTERESTING JAPANESE INVENTIONS!
LOLed when I saw these!
I’d like to think that inventions are for lazy people! Haha!
Will post more funny ones if I find more! :D
Since the dawn of women’s apparel, men have been trying to score by unhooking brassieres. This contest, however, brings the game to a whole new level.
A Chinese shopping mall hosted a competition to find out who could unclasp bras the fastest using just one hand.
Competitors raced to undress a line of eight masked women who stood on a stage in the Guangzhou mall wearing bras and short-shorts.
Eager participants entered the contest to fulfill their dreams and have the chance to take home a mall gift certificate for 1,000 yuan — about $146 — according to AsianPopular.com.
Event organizers insisted the May 8 event didn’t objectify women — it educated men.
“The workings of a woman’s bra are a mystery for many men — this activity helped more people understand bra culture and explore its secrets,” a mall spokesman told the Mumbai Mirror.
That might be the case, considering the fact that a female shopper took top honors by unclasping all eight bras in just 21 seconds.
The victor, who declined to give her name, said she might have had an unfair advantage over her male rivals, according to Fox Chicago.
“I didn’t expect to win — maybe it was because I get so much practice in my everyday life,” she said.
What a funny advertisement. But it gets your attention isn’t it?

And these are the current rage in Japan.”
