What’s so “Bad” about that idea?

Today I had to laugh as I saw a truck with the image of a family in bathtub at sea. The tub had a motor attached at the back and the mother, father and two kids seemed to be enjoying their journey. The image was an advertisement for a company that offers products from a firm called BadIdeen — “bath ideas” — but between the image of the bath at sea and the fact that the English word “bad” should be translated as schlecht rather than das Bad, I couldn’t help thinking that this was a company selling “bad ideas” rather than, as described below, tolle Ideen für das Badezimmer
