in reply to Is there a Javamonks?

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 http://www.experts-exchange.com/ used to be called http://www.expertsexchange.com/ 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: http://agedwards.com 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" :-)
