The Nutria 700

Quick hit.

I listen to TV more than I actually watch. That would be the reason for my recent confusion regarding a current high tech gadget offering from Verizon.

Commercial Audio (what I heard anyway):

"Kitchen, bathrooms and your Nutria 700." 

What?  Why would a company name any product after a  large, heavy (8 - 10 pounds), mostly nocturnal rodent with orange teeth and a long rounded scaly ratlike tail? Nutria, big rats. 

This morning I actually looked at the commercial -- new Treo not Nutria.  Oh, Huh.
