    Wink How do you stay in business with a name like this?
    I was checking out the merchants at SAS and found.....STD Singles. I always thought STD was Sexually Transmitted Diseases....EWWW.

    Who would want to sign on for that????

    And then over at CJ, they have HOSEASON. I didn't know if they meant HO - Season or what; but apparently it's vacation rentals! LOL!

    It is! That dating service is to connect infected people with each other...since no UNinfected person would want to hook up...

    And I agree--EEWWWW yuck!

    I saw that and laughed like heck! I actually think they mean "holiday season." I think they're in Britain and they don't normally shorten "whore" into "HO"...the name's great for laughs (and not much else) in the US, though!

    Imagine the look on someone crashing the Vacation timeshare resort party holding the annual convention for the STD-singles group with a can of coolwhip and jar of cherries.

    Some just don't get the whole "Branding" thing. Just look at all of the silly domain names you see float by in the new merchant selections at the networks (two networks in particular). The whole thing just says Cheap.

    *cringe* First time I looked at that hoseason... I read it as hose-a-son. And I though they probably meant hosea-son and it was a religious site (I have no idea if that is how you actually spell hosea)

    But ho-season?

    Infinitely worse.
