In Which I Sense Laziness

Today, I present you with this:

I found this near the sink by the coffee makers at work, and thought that the name of this generic soap was incredibly lazy. I mean, the people behind marketing this product didn't even try to come up with a name for it. Sure, a lot of the good names have already been used, like Dawn, Joy, Palmolive, Ajax, Ultra, Cascade, Gain, Electrasol... the list goes on. But to let the type of product you're selling also double as the "brand name" for it? That's just lazy.

Also, what's this about the "original scent"? Original, as compared to what? And what exactly does original smell like? Slimy, wet dishes that have been soaking in the sink for a week?

Anyone else seen any crazy generic brand names, or other oddly named products lately?

Have a good weekend, everyone.
