"Is the pill you took already working or is that a Palm smartphone in your pocket?"

Treo means headache in sewdish ...

Jan Fuellemann, 2007-07-19

I guess a Swede needs to shed some light here:

Treo is a very well known trademark in Sweden. It is an aspirin. Initially developed by Leo Pharmaceuticals in Lund, Sweden. Later Leo was acquired by Pharmacia and then Pharmacia was acquired by Pfizer. I guess that Pharmacia registered the domain some ten years ago.

And headache in Swedish is not Treo, it is "huvudvärk".

But it is quite funny nevertheless.

So there's no real connection between smartphone users and Viagra? ;-)
