Tricky Domain Names

Today's entry is

Despite the name, believe me, these are not fun people. HUBLA stands for perHUBungan LAut (or sea transportation, in English). They also have a subdepartment called, I'm not making this up, DitLaLaLa.

For those who are curious, the acronym stands for Direktorat peLayaran dan Lalu lintas Laut (Sea Traffic and Cruising Directorate).(1) Working in DitLaLaLa adds another form of stress.

A: So where do you work?
B: At DitLaLaLa.
A: Hahaha, that's a good one. So, seriously, where do you work?
B: Oh, forget it.
1: Imagine the commercial done by New Kids on the Block, singing "Ditlalalalala Tonight!"
