    Default Products With Truly Unfortunate Names

    We've all done it. You walking down the aisle of a supermarket and a product leaps out at you, causing you to ask "What were they thinking?" when the company named the item. More often than not, the thing is an import from another country, one with a dubious at best grasp of the subtleties and nuances of the English language. Here are a handful of these products, for your dining and dancing pleasure.

    Not real unfortunate, but we have a chinese meat company here with the name "Penguin Meats". I could only imagine if they supplied for McDonalds. My guess is they'ed come out with the Egg McPuffin! Mmmmm. Puffin.

    There actually is this spicy sauce called "Cock Sauce" a friend brings in during lunch. The "Cock" is actually a Rooster and I think it is for Chinese food.

    [QUOTE=VH Wahoo;1210134]

    First time I saw these in a shop here in Germany I cracked up laughing. I think the other shoppers wondered what I was doing but I didn't have the heart (or language ability) to explain.

    There are also jumbo sized dickmanns too.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
