Is it Really Useful?

COMPUTEX 2008 - Lost in Translation

Some are rather enthusiastic…and probably over-estimating their usefulness.  If you look closely, you’ll see they make snake-skin 2.5″ hard drive enclosures…one of which is purple.  Purple…snake-skin.  To their credit, they said “useful” and not “tasteful”.

Size Matters…

I’m not sure what Pretec here really knows about the “big impact” of innuendo in their tagline. Though some would say size doesn’t matter, we all know it does. If you have “Small Size” I wouldn’t broadcast that to the world.

Others are straight up lies.  Those couldn’t be bigger than double-Ds!

Dongs and Wangs

But the signs that cause the most snickers…well, you really can’t go wrong with wang…or dong, for that matter.
