Slur URLs

Another tome for the bog, a book of inadvertently "witty" or "amusing" company names  which don't quite translate well into website addresses.  Nicknamed "slurls" they include the following:
  • Mole Station Nursery, a business in Australia selling gardening goods was first "molestationnursery" before changing it to "molerivernursery". 
  • Italian home page for energy company Powergen – powergenitalia.
  • Experts Exchange – a site where programmers can trade advice – is found at www.expertsexchange.com 
  • American Scrap Metal – a scrap metal recycling firm – has its website at www.angelfire.com/alt/americanscrapmetal  
  • Speed of Art – a collective or art designers – are online at www.speedofart.com
More inane nonsense at TTel.
