So, I know some here know a bit german, I recently saw a car on the street with the company logo
"BAD DESIGN" on it, in big letters.

Well, we all know, that this is not the perfect choice as a company name Smile | :) but in german, the word "Bad" means "Bath" or "Bathroom" - So this is a company that designs your bath!

So yes, this can happen, if you try to sound "cool" with an english name for your little company but... well... fail D'Oh! | :doh:
Even if you want to do a "Bad Design" (german), you don't want it to be a "Bad Design" (english) WTF | :WTF:
