Definitely one of the funniest things I've seen all week.  I'll give you the first two as teasers.

Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn’t give their domain names enough consideration:

1. A site called ‘Who Represents‘ where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name… wait for it… is
www.whorepresents.com

2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at
www.expertsexchange.com

This list is pretty outdated.  Expert Sex Change has long since changed their domain name to experts-exchange.com.  ExpterSexChange.com doesn't even seem to be a redirect any more, just a parked domain name.

And #3, www.penisland.net, was created as a joke in the first place.  It's a good joke, but it's still just a joke.

#1 might be for real though.  Nice.

That's what I was saying, it used to be real, but that was a long, long time ago.

Hehe, pardon me.  I think I skipped over that first part of your post.

There is a bowling alley opening up here in town called Big Als.  I dont know why on earth they would name their place that when there is a certain character on South Park that I would not want my company mentioned in the same breath as... anyway, that is beside the point.  They were running ads at the local movie theaters which had their url displayed at the bottom:
http://www.ilovebigals.com

Yes, we all love bi gals... right?  Numerous people in the crowd got a good chuckle out of it.

The only catch being you don't know which side they'll bat for.

The Flippin Church of Christ is funny in a sad way. I mean, their website was designed by 1993.
