    See an advert for a product or startup with a stupid name? Don't keep it to yourself, let us all have a laugh.

    Pampas - These won't help keep your babies bottoms dry.

    Syrp - Pronounced syrup, but they're not selling new wave chic wigs

    For the non-brits a syrup is cockney rhyming slang, being "syrup of figs" = wigs.

    They also have poor accessibility in the graphic design dept

    Not so much a weird name for a product...

    The other night I was particularly manic and shouting out random rude names and words. All of a sudden I hollered out "MINGE EXTREME !" and then for some reason (mania) I decided to type it into Google whilst simultaneously laughing myself into a stupor. Imagine my surprise (and even more laughter) when I discovered this.

    Maybe you were imagining a reboot of centurions where all the main characters are lesbians?

    The entire Cove bike range, Google as posting them may result in some form of ban.

    https://rockylinux.org/ the replacement for CentOS.
    Also, if you get 100 centOS systems, do you get a dollarOS?

    For a long, long time I wanted one of Cove's Canadian made steel hardtails, the one with a name beginning with H, but I never could bring myself to buy one because of the name.

    I'd have posted the SMEG Toaster.
    Oh and it turns out it just an acronym for Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla

    yeah but nobody around here even likes Toast or Or muffins! We don't like muffins 'round here! We want no muffins, no toast, no teacakes, no buns, baps, baguettes, or bagels! No croissants, no crumpets, no pancakes, no potato cakes, and no hot cross buns, and definitely, no smeggin' flapjacks!
