Gas Stations and Billboards

I'd like to pay, pump and bolt. Count on ShellI’ve been seeing this ad around at local San Francisco Shell gas stations for a while now. Maybe my mind is just especially warped, but this phrase does not remind me of getting gasoline. In fact every time I hear it, I think that this is what I would tell a hooker if I was in a hurry. Am I so wrong here…???

And while we’re on the topic… a while back I had been seeing ads on busses for a Lake Tahoe website – GoTahoe.com. The billboard said something to the effect of:

What are you doing this weekend?
GoTahoe.com.

Except that they didn’t write it like that, they wrote it like:

What are you doing this weekend?
gotahoe.com

which every time I looked at it, I saw "What are you doing this weekend? got-a-hoe?"
