Not quite what you were looking for but I read a funny story in the paper this morning about domain names that can be misread.

A certain (now hyphenated) website called used to be called which can be read as "Expert Sex Change". Go figure.

More on this from snopes

    In the category of easily misread domain names:

    A.G. Edwards has been running commercials about financial planning for retirement, which leads to the crowning irony: could be read as "aged wards".

    IOW, if you don't invest with us, in your old age you will be a ward of the state. :-(

      And how about choosexcolor program?

      My eyes are twisted. The only meaning I got is "choo sex color" :-)
