10 Most Unfortunate Product Names

No 10. Shitto is an allegedly delicious Ghanaian sauce with a name that makes Americans laugh, while everyone in Ghana seems to love it.


No 9. Sars. This drink from New Zealand shares its name with SARS: Severe acute respiratory syndrome.


No 8. Australian repellent "used by the armed forces." They surely need it.


No 7. Golden Gaytime is an iconic ice-cream in Australia, its name survived intact despite the homosexual connotations in modern decades. The company just decided to play up the camp name with the boxes, holding the words "4 chances to have a gay time."


Here's a classic Golden Gaytime TV ad from the 80s, "Let the Gaytimes roll!"


No 6. Vergina (beer)


No 5. Pee Cola, a soft drink from Ghana.


No 4. Jussipussi. So that's how finnish bread taste like.


No 3. Megapussi (potato chips). Priceless.


No 2. Cock flavoured mix (soup). Mmmmm spicy!


No 1. Ayds (diet candy). Ayds (pronounced "AIDS") was a diet candy from the 1980s. Years later, the name would have its current meaning.

Both of the Finnish cases are bit bad.

Pussi means bag, and thus doesn't refer to the actual product but to the packaging.

The bread one is a "Jussipussi" of wheat bread, and the chips is a "megapussi" (larger package) of chips.

The whole title of this post, "10 Most Unfortunate Product Names" is quite overacted, and in the end these are very shallow and also pointless - these can be done from the point of view of any language.

Oh, please. They're hilarious.

I agree with Jules... they're funny. But, one has to have a slightly twisted mind to take these the 'wrong' way. Hate to say it Jules, you're in that boat with me and our mirandized friends. Jokers!!! Andrew

furo said...

LOL! They're fun! Unlike stuffy anonymous who sounds like as much fun as a toothache :P
I'll go along with Andrew and the fun people ^.^

I just intended to point out it can be done from any point of view. Don't be surprised when non-English laugh at similar English stuff. :P
(I've seen that happen. Quoting the usual reaction: "ARE YOU DUMB? THAT'S NOT FUN!?")

One good example I distantly recall is French washing pulver/liquid makers who marketed their products with names starting like with word "perse"... I don't know how nice word it is there and how shiny image people get out of it, but it means "ass" in Finnish. And it isn't a scientific word for it, it's vulgar.

Dental hygiene is vasty essential to total wellness. Most people don't feel of their oral hygiene as a component of their wellness, but a lot of wellness associated problems stem from infections inside the mouth. See your dentist twice a year and prevent any unecessary health difficulties that could have been avoided in case you did your 2 yearly check ups.

missouri auto insurance One of my favorite things about blogging is this community of bloggers. We aren’t cut-throat. We share successes and miseries. And when something works, we don’t keep it to ourselves – we want it to work for everyone. I love blogging and hope that it becomes full-time one day, but I enjoy the learning and growing (the journey) and am a very patient man. Jason - texas car insurance

texas auto insurance quote Your blog is fine. I just want to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say --which I think is really important. I dont know if you didnt think that your words could hold everyones attention, but you were wrong. Martha , california auto insurance rate

I tend not to drop many comments, however I
glanced through a few remarks on "10 Most Unfortunate Product Names".
I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of these responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list of every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
