For some reason, there is a spot close to where we live where people tend to post signs. They are the annoying, stick-in-the-ground signs that you see millions of during voting years, only these signs usually have nothing to do with voting. These signs are there to advertise things like community soccer clubs to sign up for, or church fundraisers, or sometimes start up businesses. Normally I don't pay much attention to these signs except for a brief look to see if anything of them had been replaced.

The other day, though, a new one caught my eye. The sign was advertising Boston Butts being sold to benefit the Huntsville High School wrestling team. My guess is that the word "butt" caught my eye, because my inner 12 year old started giggling. I read the entire sign and saw that there was a web address down at the bottom, and that is what actually got me laughing out loud:

No, I don't think you get the full force of that web address. Let's look at it again.


I nearly ran off of the road because I was laughing so hard. Now, granted, this probably isn't as funny to anyone else as it is to me. The HHS mascot is a panther, so the address should make perfect sense, right? It totally doesn't! Who in their right mind would think "hmmmmmm, we need a website for ordering these roasts, but what could we all it? How about Nah, those are not catchy enough. I KNOW!! Perfect! Let's go get some signs made!"

All I can think of when I see that sign, is that some web master for a very specific brand of niche porn is probably PISSED that the domain name is already taken. Hee.

So please, for the kids, go to and order a Boston Butt from the wrestling team. This way they can keep the domain name out of the hands of the perverts.

Well at least they didn't pick a domain name that if you don't read it quite right, it sounds way dirty.

I had a customer that picked a domain like that one time. Tech support calls were somewhat humorous for the techs that were reading out loud the domain name for the first time. It was something like
