Funny. Things like www.ipanywhere.com

Attn: Entrepeneurs
Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn’t give their domain names enough consideration:

1. A site called ‘Who Represents‘ where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name… wait for it… is
www.whorepresents.com

2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at
www.expertsexchange.com

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at
www.penisland.net

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at
www.therapistfinder.com

5. Then of course, there’s the Italian Power Generator company…
www.powergenitalia.com

6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales:
www.molestationnursery.com

7. If you’re looking for computer software, there’s always
www.ipanywhere.com

8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is
www.cummingfirst.com

9. Then, of course, there’s these brainless art designers, and their whacky website:
www.speedofart.com

10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at
www.gotahoe.com

My brain is so slow this morning, it actually took me a while to get the one you quoted. I-panny-where? I-pan-you-here? OH.

Maybe those URLs really are intentional, just to get the sites more traffic!

I did notice that you can't actually buy pens at penisland.net

But www.molestationnursery.com did change its URL to molerivernursery, so I'm thinking that that one was more real!

Several of these would make excellent punk band names.

Yeah, I saw this a few days ago. Good stuff. I know I could definitely use an Expert Sex Change. However, the actual website is: http://www.experts-exchange.com/

Yeah, www.expertsexchange.com doesn't profit you anything. The church, however, has something even better than their url:

http://www.cummingfirst.com/organ.html

Put your hands on the organ and make a joyful noise unto the lord, indeed.

And I'll note that we are not allowed to view the power genitalia.

They really do have quite a bit to say about their organ, don't they?
