You gotta hand it to humans--find an outlet to be funny and creative, and they'll find it.

When wireless companies allowed you to start creating your own funny wifi names, creatives took the bait.


u/K4NZ0 asked:

What's the best Wi-Fi name you've seen?

Here were some of those names.

A Little Too Telling

"Crack Shack" which wasn't exactly creative but we later found out that the owners were arrested for selling drugs.

I'm All Signals

My younger brother set his mobile hotspot to "Hot Singles in Your Area" and I'm never gonna get over it.

Confusing The Masses

We're not allowed to have our own routers on campus, so I named mine AT&T Mobile Hotspot.

For The Pass

My favorite is "it's on the back of the router"

Ping Ping!

For the longest time, I had my phones hotspot name as 'Police Surveillance Tricycle'.

Turns out, its a good way to get some people paranoid and have others amused over the whole thing when having it active during classes.

One of my son's (probably about 12 or 13 at the time) friend's father set added a Wi-Fi channel named "Free Internet Porn" when his son had a birthday sleep-over. The father then sat outside the area where they were sleeping and listened to them spend hours trying to figure out how to connect. My son called me that night asking how to connect to a Wi-Fi channel when you don't know the password because his friend forgot their password. I told him the only way was to guess. Evidently it kept them busy and out of trouble all night!

Grandma's Got Jokes

When my grandma was getting her WiFi set up, we asked her what she'd say to people who asked for her WiFi. She said that she would tell them to "Go to Hell", so that's now her password. So whenever people ask for the WiFi password, she tells them, "Go to Hell".

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet
Ron Fung/Unsplash

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

People Explain Which Professions They Have Absolutely No Respect For

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
