The bikini on the B wasn't a dead giveaway? ;-P

I think I'll let you ponder the significance of the B a bit longer ...

I love seeing how long it takes for people to 'get it'. It's fairly subtle.

My first logo was a little easier to understand, but my wife wasn't a blonde, nor happy to explain the business. So she was understandably happy to pay the bill to come up with a new logo. :D

Well, I "got it" first time I saw your website and thought "an unfortunate name" ... :wink:

... and wondered "has he noticed? Should I say something?" :roll:

Well, in my younger days I wasn't very fond of the nickname but I thought it was a nice way to 'own it' and use it to my advantage.

It could've been worse, my sister knew someone named R. Sitch.

It could be a lot worse. I went to school with a girl named Cayenne Pepper and a boy named Candy Glaze.

Since you mention it, I knew a Wendy House, and an Annette Kirton

probably sounded like a great idea over a few bottles of Thunderbird...

I knew a Charlie Brown in school, but the worst was I knew one male in my class whose name was pronounced 'Haaarr', but spelled 'Hoare'. First day of school with a new teacher he always had to correct their pronunciation, but it must have been worse for his sister.

And, lately, I heard a report on one of the athletes in the olympics named 'Destiny Hooker'. Cmon, if your last name is 'Hooker', and you have a daugher, she's already going to have one strike against her in life. Don't add to that by calling her 'Destiny' ;)

I knew a girl in high school with the last name of LOVEJOY. It suited her well according to members of the football team.

Could have named her "Chastity"..... but then you'd have to explain it to the football team

At least, tell your wife and friends they should all be very thankful you're not a therapist trying to promote your service using the web...
