The Perils of Working from Home #693

While researching social media network trends using Alexa's Top 100 sites list, clicking on a website named xhamster.com

Hint #1: Has absolutely nothing to do with hamsters. Nada. Zero. Zilch.
Hint #2: It's porn.

Most. Misleading URL. Ever.

I'm still trying to play connect the dots with this one: aside from the ubiquitous 'X' in the URL I really can't figure out where the 'hamster' part comes into play.

Actually, let's just say that A) I just made a couple of inadvertent (no, really!) double entendres with that last sentence and B) I don't think I really want to know the connection as the only thing popping into my mind is the early 90's urban legend involving Richard Geer & a hamster.

*Ctrl-D* If researching Web 2.0 ego wanking leads me to actual wanking, who am I to look a gift horse hamster in the mouth?
