Favorite Jokes About Qwickster

Netflix's making a separate company to handle sending off DVDs called Qwickster. Twitter's all a flutter about the name:

If you work for Qwikster, does that make you a Qwikee?

Netflix is about as perfect a name as could have been created. But Qwikster sounds like a weight-loss powder sold by The Onion.

And my personal favorite:

Qwikster sounds like the name of a 24-hour convenience store. Or, a service performed in the alley next to a 24-hour convenience store.
