Update: We initially wrote that Pen Island (penisland.net) used to sell pens, and now it is a porn site. We made an error. Penisland.net still sells pens. Penisland.com is a porn site.There are a few websites that mean well, but their domain names read funny.

Take Therapist.com, for example. It can easily be misread as The Rapist.

Here are some of the funniest, most inappropriate-sounding domain names from around the web.

title=”Pen Island sells you only the best pens. Of course, the domain could also be read as PenisLand.net*”
content=”*Update: We initially wrote: ‘Last year, Pen Island sold you only the best pens. It seems the site owner realised the domain was frequently read as PenisLand. Now it’s fittingly a porn site.’ This was inaccurate. PenIsland.net still sells pens. Penisland.com is a pornography site.’ We’ve updated the screenshot of PenIsland.net.
