So much for the internet revolution. This Vietnamese grapefruit trader thought he was being dead smart registering the name of his wholesalers on the web at www.buoi.com.vn. Only it turns out the word for grapefruit, buoi, is also slang for penis in the local lingo. So the authorities banned his website for not being “in accordance with social ethics, lifestyle and national culture.” Bet that left a sour taste in his mouth.
