It always amazes us what people are willing name their companies, and then what some companies will call their products. Sure some of the foreign products fall under that lost in translation gray area, but American companies and products have no excuse other than stupidity. Here is a collection of some of our favorite funny products, weird advertisements, and ridiculous, unintentionally funny company names and logos.
Erektus and Pee Cola
Shit Be Gone
Cooking with Pooh
Clay Modeling with Pooh …Really?
Bona Wood Cleaner
100% Cok (not 90% like other Cok Juice)
Pork Faggots (Can that be real?
Total Telco Specialists, or TITS for shorts… wait, what?
Organic Throat Coat
Clarkes Special Nugget Plug
Concrete Vibrator …Ladies?
Got some of your own funny product shots, or pictures of a ridiculous, unintentionally funny company name? Send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you’d like to be credited on the site… for instance: Sent in by Doctor Jesus Von Penissaber III
Now we realize there may be some lost-in-translation aspects of this poster… but come on. Could it be more suggestive? Maybe if we spoke French we’d know this has something to do wine stimulating your appetite, but mostly we just think it’s a man pounding wine with a boner. Hey, whatever you French people think is cool.
Foreign products easily make up the majority of our funny products category. There is a seemingly endless supply of foreign product names that take on a whole new meaning in English. Megapussi is no exception. Though in this case we have a hard time believing this product name means anything else in any other language… call us ignorant Americans if you want, but come on… this is one funny foreign product that needs no English translation. SOLD!
I love a good funny product name, but the combination of the name and the picture on this product sort of scares me. I’m not entirely sure I’d want to drink an energy drink with this name. I’m all for a good old fashioned energy drink, but I’d prefer my energy boost sans boner.
I can tell you right now, this place makes great food and has great beers on tap. When I noticed this wonderful little bit of stupidity on the menu I knew it would end up on the site. To The Grill Next Door’s credit, they’ve since changed the menu. Occasionally it pays to hire a real designer and copywriter to handle this kind of stuff.
We’re not entirely sure, but we’re guessing this wasn’t on the New York Times Bestseller list. And are we the only ones that think it’s weird that the little kid is hugging a dinosaur while she sh#ts? We might have to track this one down for our personal awkward book collection. It’ll look nice next Cooking with Pooh
Shit Be Gone toilet paper. Nothing like getting right to the point with a funny product name. Personally if it were up to me I’d have called it Ass Wipe, but this also works… I guess.
This one was emailed in to us (Thanks to Joel), but again appears to have originated from Joom Gallery
Let’s break this one down. You’re Johnson. You’re a businessman. You take on a business partner named Dix. Do you take some time and come up with a creative name for the company, or do you let your personal pride in your last names drive you to make a really stupid decision and turn your company into a joke? We thank Johnson and Dix – Petroleum Marketers for taking that second option.
And thanks to “Anita Johnson” from MA for sending this one in.
If you include the words nut, nuts, balls, cock, dick, etc in your product name we’re going to eventually find it. We’re not saying stop, though neither are we saying it’s smart. We’re simply saying thanks for giving us material. And we’re wondering who the creative directors are that are approving these names? Holy shit. You should probably see if Disney’s Mouse Works will hire you.
I just wanted a Ring Ding and some Pepsi, little did I know that for about the same price I could get a baby out of the next vending machine. As much as $1.75 is a bargain for a newborn, I chose the “food”
Cooking with Pooh. That’s right folks, this is a real book (I actually own it… how couldI not?). A big thanks to the art directors at Disney Mouse Works that let this one slip out the door, not just for the name, but for whatever is being stirred in that bowl.
To my knowledge, Montezuma’s Revenge is the scorching runs that you get when you drink tainted (heh heh) Mexican tap water. I’m not sure the marketing geniuses at this company thought about that when picking this name for their chips. Further evidence of their extreme marketing prowess is that they have shown Mama Zuma as being a scantily clad hot brunette. Snack food, with a name that sounds like slang for diarrhea, which is personified by a strangely arousing hot cartoon woman? That all makes total sense to me. Now if you’ll excuse me, my bowl of Buttnugget CrunchGrundle-Os is getting soggy.
