Apparently, Woolworths have been selling a bed designed for six-year-old girls with the brand-name “Lolita”. When it was pointed out that this might not be entirely appropriate, they responded (and I paraphrase, but not inaccurately) “nobody who works for Woolworths has ever heard of the famous novel of that name about the middle-aged man who becomes sexually obsessed with a pre-teen girl, or of the two films based on it. We looked it up on Wikipedia, and you’re quite right, that’s inappropriate. We’ll withdraw it from sale and ask our suppliers what on earth they were thinking calling it that.” Can an entire company really be that culturally ignorant? It’s hard to believe.

Here’s the story from Reuters.
