    I will admit to chuckling a bit every time I see that name! I just can't help it!

    Actually, it is a much better name than what it was originally, before John Couche bought the controlling shares of Richard Emerson ****'s company. Richard chose to name the original company after himself, but was too cheap to use is full name on all the signs he would have to have made. After an evening suit shopping trip to the local J.C. Penny's he had an idea how to shorten the name. Needless to say, it was not well received. Especially at the second annual special Olympics which he chose to be a top sponsor at. You can imagina the complete disaster it was having all the signs posted with that name on it. Complete disaster.

    What a shame, I was really looking forward to the epic battle between Couche-**** and Kum and Go. Possibly the two best named companies in the history of ever!

    One more letter down the alphabet and Couche-**** would have been even funnier.
