How many people here are in the advertising industry? Very few, I'd suppose.

The cardinal rule of marketing a product is to keep people talking about it. Sex does indeed sell things, but at the end of the day, you still can't **** off your target market. HEB knows who they're shilling to and they probably made the right, if not ridiculously conservative, decision.

This thread (all several pages of it) is proof that a simple name can launch this much chatter. She got free lip-service on national news broadcasts, local media and Saturday Night Live. Let's see if she can smartly stop complaining long enough to harness this incredible free 15 minutes of fame.

Sorry... but I personally wouldn't want to stop at that truck, cause you wouldn't know off hand what they were sellin' or what services they offered, but I do know that it isn't what family is looking for. And I'm sure most people with kids surely wouldn't either. I love a good, catchy phrase or play on words, but you gotta make it something EVERYBODY can get into.That sounds like it maybe should be parked outside of a porn studio or a late night club or something- JK, na not really. So I agree with HEB on this one, although they should not have led her on or accepted and then took offer away, that's not right if that's what went down. I hope she finds something that will work out better for herself, and everyone else, cause I can't imagine the stuff that will happen when drunks come up to the truck with that name.

Who gives a crap! It's business! I launched a clothing line that is pro 2nd amendment and I don't expect a school or church event to book me for a event. It's the nature of the beast we created (pansies) so go where you are wanted, me I sell to gun vendors all across the country and don't waist much time trying to ***** and moan cause a school un-booked me. This owner should do the same, move on make some money!

I guess the image of a chicken, chopsticks and the words "Spicy Korean Fried Chicken" on the side of her truck makes me think of Asian Porn...BAD BAD IDEA!!
