So I stumbled on this gem on the Nation this afternoon.
I’ll skip to the interesting bit:
Vice-Chancellor George Magoha said the building should be completed in 120 weeks and will be named Chandaria University of Nairobi Towers. [Ed: That would be C.U.N.T for short]
He said the Chandaria Foundation would contribute Sh125million towards the construction and hence the reason behind the naming of the facility.
Ehem. One question. If you have Sh.2.5 billion to spend on building anything, wouldn’t you look carefully at the name you chose?
I can’t help but feel like the guy designing the logo for this looked at the name and asked “Are you sure?” And chuckled when the Vice-Chancellor said “Yeah. We’re very sure.”
Maybe they should also build a medical school annex next to it and call it the Doctor’s Instruction Center of Kenya while they’re at it and really just milk those abbreviations for what they’re worth.
Honestly, I’m just waiting for the “Slippery When Wet” signs that have a C.U.N.T logo at the bottom.
Or better still, the Chandaria University of Marketing.
This is too easy.
