Strange branding abroad....

Whilst in one of those giant booze warehouses in Calais I noticed they also sell washing powder and liquid in bulk too. Bizarrely I spotted the one below which is called "The Cat Expert".

Inevitably it produced a "WTF?" moment. Perhaps its good at getting hairs off clothes? Anyone else know of any strangely named brands abroad?

Not a brand but a cafe: Fanni büfé, in Szentendre, Hungary.

I've always chuckled whenever I hear about Siemens (Building Technologies), Staines.

Note that Persil means 'parsley' in French, but they still sell it there.

Somewhere I have one of those little Private Eye books with a photograph juxtaposing what appear to be spray cans containing two Chinese/Asian domestic products, an insect repellant called PISS and a stain remover called OFF.

Australia's "tastiest cheese" also happens to be possibly the most offensive cheese in the world!

I think that there is a Fench fizzy drink called Pschitt.

It is probably named after the noise when you open the cap, as opposed to any side effects from drinking too much.
