Hilarious Domain Mispronouncings (or how Pen Island custom pens became Penis Land)

“Whether you’re looking for a long and skinny pen, a thick pen, a fountain pen that squirts ink, or even a black pen, we have just the one for you.” Is it just me? I’m on the floor laughing my ass off !
Hilarious Domain Name Mispronouncings
What do you check before you buy a domain name. Spelling of course. Trademarks. What else?
Sometimes a domain name phrase is intended to be pronounced in one way, but if you look at it differently, it can be pronounced in a another, often hilarious, way. The classic example that is often mentioned on the internet is a site called Experts Exchange, where techies gather to answer each others’ questions. The founder of the site picked out what seemed like the very nice domain name of ExpertsExchange.com, and it became very popular. But, early on, he found out that some were reading the the domain name differently, mispronuncing it as ExpertSexChange.com. LOL!
Seriously: Think before you register your domain !
