What's in a name?
Is there some unwritten rule somewhere that says e juice makers HAVE to give their blends weird names? Wish they would at least put a flavor description written underneath or something. Just looked at one online named Gorilla Snot! You have to click on it for flavor description which turns out to be BANANA MANGO CUSTARD. I get the Gorilla part,(they like bananas I have heard), but how does SNOT describe Mango and Custard. If I am searching for a flavor it is a time waster for me.

Typing this post reminded me of a joke I heard when I was a kid..."If you are caught by a Gorilla the first thing he will do is rip your ear off!
He wants to peel you!"

It's late as hell. I'm tired as hell. I just laughed at this way harder than I should have.

RE: What's in a name?
Believe it or not and crazy as it may sound, bureaucratic idiots TPTB in Brussels are actually trying to make it illegal to describe a flavour. According to them, using a flavour description is promotional.

If this transitions to US Law, you may well lose the fancy names.. treasure them while you still can Tongue

OK, well, if all this regulation is happening to vaping "in the interest of public health and safety", as they always claim, then how are juice names dangerous? Holy crumbs. The government and me ain't too tight.

So what you are saying is that you will not likely be getting an invite to the presidential inauguration in January? Smile

I have a better chance to attend this one than the last two; I'll say that much.

Ah yes, the old joke about the outgoing administration:

An estimated 425,000 people attended the inaugurations, and only 13 missed work.

RE: What's in a name?
i ran across a flavor called "unicorn puke " , for some odd reason the name didn't really inspire me to pay $18 for 15ml just to give it a go .
the guy at the shop says it's awesome , but lets face it some people think pea soup is awesome ..yarf

I declined a few, Fairy Farts, and Stinky Pinky. Don't care how good it is, I wouldn't try either. They said they were good selling juices, too.
