#32: What’s in a Name?
Normally, people like to buy products that have wonderful packaging, great customer reviews, and a brand name that really fits the bill. It’s all about name and appearance. But sometimes, a brand comes along and really shakes things up. Enter Barf, a brand of laundry detergent.
This is a hysterical random fact that makes me question what the executives of Barf were thinking when they decided to name their laundry detergent brand Barf. Laundry detergent, of all things. Now, in the company’s defense, this is an Iranian company whose line of soaps and detergents, unfortunately, translates to the word Barf in English. So, it’s really not their fault. But it is funny.
