The Door is a Jar

Dedicated to seeing the lighter and slightly skewed side of life

Who comes up with this stuff?


I work in retail.  Occasionally, I have to actually create names for some of the products we sell.  It can be incredibly difficult.  For that reason, I have great respect for others who also have to invent product names.  However (you knew that was coming, didn’t you) as I was walking around The Home Depot this weekend, I couldn’t help but notice some product names are just….hilarious!

This one is for Husky Plastic Sheeting.  I guess the husky is referring to the size of the sheeting?  I must have seen one too many mobster movies.  All I can think of is that “husky” is the size of the body you need to get rid of.  You know the scene where the guy realizes he’s a goner after he walks into the plastic lined room?  They make you show ID to buy spray paint, maybe they should consider it for this too.  Just sayin!  That guy in the background looks kind of shady 🙂

Goof Off.  This one made me feel strangely guilty.  Could that be because I was taking pictures instead of doing actual work?  Hard to say….I’ll get back to ya.

I love it when products have names that would normally start with a “C” but they change it to a “K”  Oh YEAH!  Krud Kutter makes KLEANING KOOL!!  Trademark.

Last, but certainly not least…

I think they know that men shop here.

Hey all! This is the spot where I get to tell you about myself. Can I tell you how incredibly awkward that is? I mean who are we really? It's really a question for the ages. But, if I must answer, I am a photography junkie, wannabe writer, wife with a full time job. On the side, I like to think that my cooking is above average and that I could probably hold my own on the TV Show "Chopped", although I probably couldn't. Life is good!
