Someone had to decide this was a good idea

Another "gem" I found with my camera phone. What the fuck were they thinking when this name was chosen?

"Hey! How about a catchy product name that's only mildly to moderately racially insensitive?"

"Great thinking, Ray! We can put it on the shelf next to the BlessJew! tissues."

"Will this delay the launch of the new line of Cheap-Ass Scotsman cleaning products?"

"No, but we do also need to review the packaging for our Drunken Mick Instant Potatoes."

9 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

Cheap? They forgot crazy and moody. That's how I've been told, according to some guy at the airport. Before I beat him with my sword. :)

Sweet Jesus, did I just type that? Next thing you know, I'll be typing "You go, girl" or something even more vile.

I agree with eclectic in hoping that the intention was to capitalize on the "gigalo" reputation, but then again the spelling is all wrong. Who would have thought that an entire company in this day and time could/would be so damn openly ignorant?
