There’s a convenience store chain:
Ever since the first time I saw one I’ve been referring to it as Wham Bam. No one who hasn’t heard it from Amethyst or me before has ever figured out what I meant by Wham Bam, but all it takes is to say “Kum & Go” and no further explanation is necessary. No one’s ever said, “I dont’ get it”.
Something I’ve been wondering: When George Lucas was coming up with names for the characters in Star Wars, did he think the character eventually played by Harrison Ford was a bit of a jerkoff? And did the princess’ name come about because he thought, “You’re a sap, Luke. The one thing that princess is never gonna do is Leia?”. It seems kinda obvious that the big hairy co-pilot was inspired by some chick he met at a cowboy bar who had that telltale white ring on the hip pocket of her jeans.
I’ve mentioned this one before: On bottles of Ivory dishwashing liquid it says:
Gentle On Hands
Hard On Grease
I appreciate that my hands won’t get chapped but I still can’t see myself using it that way.
Something else I’ve mentioned before: Green Giant Steamers. I just can’t bring myself to buy something that’s supposed to be food that is named after a fresh cow flop.
I only recently became aware of this one: Dried Plums. Are we really so affected by marketing that Dried Plums sell significantly better than prunes?
I had more but Miss Awesome is telling me that it’s time to pet the cat. She’s usually right about those kinds of things.
