Two Czech Product Names You're Not Likely To See In The West

Some sort of portable hot tub company...

Detergent for the washing machine...


  1. Ha! I love those things!

    I remember the first time I saw the sign of the drugstore chain "Teta". In spanish it means Tit.

    But nothing has still topped Mitsubishi Pajero. In Argentina that means "wanker". The first time I saw one I almost pissed myself laughing. They had to change the name to "Montero" to sell it there.

  2. I once saw some toilet paper named "Grand Finale" in Strakonice. If only phones had cameras then...

  3. Grand Finale! That's fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

  4. What about the vending machines scattered about Prague, all run by a company called....Wanko.
