What brilliant marketing team for the drug companies came up with this name? Aciphex? Really. And yes it sounds just like it’s spelled. Now I have heartburn.

    One of the really great marketing mistakes that Chevrolet made was initially not changing the name of one of its cars in Latin America. The Nova wasn’t a bad car, but “No va” means “won’t go” in Spanish. Marilyn Monroe in an ad is almost never a mistake.

    Good story but it’s an urban legend.

    And the MM pic was for you. I thought you deserved some eye candy too.
