eek Naming crisis

At least they should then have created a brilliant logo.....


If you were a company called Powergen and you had a subsidiary that
operated in Italy, what would you call that company's website?.

Probably not http://www.powergenitalia.com

But they really did - Who do you think will get the sack for this one?

omg I just had a mental picture of the logo.
Dont think anyone will get the sack they probably wont realise for ages.
It's like when they first named the NTU, it was College University Northern Territory. Took about 8mths before they realised and changed it.
