I came across Lazy Oaf pajamas recently.
What other amusingly named brands do you know of?March 6, 2018 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1482276yitzykParticipant
Some of them might even be very old brands. Like ‘In-Sink-Erator’.
How about ‘People Pops’.March 7, 2018 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #1483693catch yourselfParticipant
I always thought Triangle was funny in a dark humor sort of way (they make fire extinguishers…).March 8, 2018 6:30 am at 6:30 am #1484621
I would hope that was unintentional.March 8, 2018 11:48 am at 11:48 am #1484787hujuParticipant
It’s not a brand name, but there is a musical instrument called a “Jew’s harp.” It has a single metal twanger, gives the player a headache, and is much cheaper than most musical instruments. I don’t know where the name came from, but it has nothing to do with us chosen people. And I have never heard one played at a simcha.
Now that I think of it, it’s not funny at all.March 9, 2018 8:41 am at 8:41 am #1485621Little FroggieParticipant

Thanks, Huju! I saw one in a video recently and was wondering what it was.March 19, 2018 11:05 am at 11:05 am #1493877yitzykParticipant
Little Froggie: My son is an expert on Old Jewish Music. There have been so many bands in the past with funny names. I can’t name them all like he can, but a few come to mind:
Rashi and the Rishonim (The band leader was Rashi Schapiro – that is really his first name.)

I think I’ll add products to the scope of this thread.
One company sells bandages with the following on them:
