Wang tiles are studied by some geometers and logicians.
A man in the Netherlands made a rather modest museum to Wang computers. What did he call it? Why, the Small Wang Museum, of course!
Incidentally, though Wang Computers no longer exists, the name lives on as the name of the Wang Theatre in Boston, which led to it being used in a punchline in a local morning DJ's comedy sketch about "Viagra: the Musical".
And then there is the story about them trying to rename their support system Wang Care
Day one of rename
Operator: Good morning Wang Care, how can I help.
Caller: Who the *#£! are you calling Wangcare.
Day 2 - Name change
Panasonic had released a touchscreen PC in Japan in the 1990's called "Woody", complete with Woody Woodpecker as the mascot. They ended up branding the touchscreen aspect as "Touch Woody", which had to be quickly renamed "Woody Touch Screen" due to the obvious faux pas. But then, they also accidentally gave it the tagline "The Internet Pecker"
Nando's, a South African chicken restaurant franchise that has a penchant for putting out controversial ads, covered this recently by airing a commercial for a fake yet somewhat similar restaurant, only to add a disclaimer at the end that shows the logos of the restaurants, a rooster in both cases, side by side, so Nando's could argue that their cock was bigger than theirs.
A UK energy conservation advert, paraphrased: "When cooking, use only enough water to cover your vegetables. The same applies when having a bath." "Meat and two veg" is a jocular British euphemism for, well, you can guess.
Lucky Strike cigarettes had a slogan old comedies loved to quote: "So round, so firm, so fully packed."
This is made even funnier by the advertiser's name: YuriLowenthal.
Nutty's Bar in Sioux Falls' advertising jingle "Nuttys, where all the nuts hang out." *snicker*
Interestingly, another nutty chocolate bar, actually called "Snickers" has recently adopted the slogan "Get some nuts!"
Also, a nut company called Nobby's, with the slogan "Nibble Nobby's Nuts!"
They also sell jerky, though they unfortunately decided to forgo the opportunity to use the golden marketing line "Nibble Nobby's Meat."
The Quizno commercials with Scott and the toaster oven. The toaster oven has a sexy voice and will try to get Scott to sound just as sexy and has a whole slew of Double Entendres. "Put it in me Scott" when Scott is about to put a sandwich in the oven. Unfortunately, a Bowdlerised version began airing. "Say it with more passion!"
The Doublemint commercials with hot twins saying "Double your pleasure, double your fun!"
Corn Nuts had a commercial in the 90s where the jingle was "bust a nut, bust a nut, just open up your mouth and bust a nut!"note For those of you not in the know, "bust a nut" is urban slang for ejaculation The jingle itself, if you didn't speak English, sounded innocent enough, making this a possible inversion.
George Carlin's 1971 album "FM & AM" featured a bit in which double entendres in commercials (cigarette ads, mostly) were exposed. The most glaring is a Tiparillo spot whose tag line "Should a gentleman offer a lady a Tiparillo?" is followed by a train going into a tunnel. (More a metaphor than a visual double entendre.) Carlin: "You don't have to be Fellini to figure that one out." Winston's tagline of the time, "It's not how long you make it, it's how you make it long", is cited as not only the filthiest tagline of all time but also based in truth.
In 2013 Playtex Products decided to bring their expertise in making feminine wipes to Fresh 'n' Sexy, a post-coital wipe meant (unlike most products that bear that brand) for both sexes. The product's slogan: "For Whatever Comes Next", wasn't even half as bold as the print ads.
There's a store somewhere in Chicago called "The Pants Box," which uses as its slogan (possibly unintentionally) "Come In And Get In Our Pants."
A radio spot for a cold medicine has a soiree of women discussing how their husbands and/or boyfriends have theirs either outrageous or ugly, then they go up in a collective gasp when the fourth woman says her husband's is "short." His cold symptoms, that is, thanks to the medicine.
