Was at a trade show over the weekend and discovered there is a company in China that makes Milling machines called Threeway.

I suggested a "Threeway Mill" to the wife last night. She was even less enthusiastic about it than my other equipment purchase ideas. :D

Video game Minecraft has an official annually conference called Mineconf. It reminds me the Nazi book all the time.

Whenever I have some problem with my car, I always take it to Fucks Car. They're the best.

I worked for a Swiss company that was taken over by Siemens, the UK office was in Staines.
The receptionist quit four days later, after all the crank calls (many of them internal), waiting to hear her announce "Good Morning Siemens Staines, how may I help you?".

Ladies & gentlemen,we have a winner! ;D

When speaking English, I am always careful to pronounce Siemens correctly as Zeemans.

Some years back, a panelbeater in my suburb, by the name of Hans, had a business called "Hans-on panel repair"

In the next industrial unit was a car exhaust company called "Butts-0n exhaust systems"!

No doubt just a coincidence.

A Chinese lithium battery supplier called Ultra Fire

Technically not "A". It's a mock up of SureFire, the leading flashlight manufacturer. Since the flashlight industry bloomed in China, lead by a few high quality brands like Nitecore and Fenix, many smaller players, not having a good brand name, use the generalized mock up brand name UltraFire.

With 18650 flashlights comes with 18650 cells, thus those "9000mAh" bullshit UltraFire cells on the market.
