Funny Names

Wed Jan 26, 2005 12:25 pm

I was recently driving around, and saw this store:



I have seen these stores forever, but I have never really thought about their name and its alternate meaning until recently. Does anyone know of any other stores or products with humorous names or names with double meanings?

There is a hardware store in the San Jose called T&A.Here in San Francisco we have Dick's Gifts & Toys. I guess you can find all three in that store.  Smile

I was out in North Carolina for the 1903-2003 aviation celebration. While out there I saw a restaurant name "Dirty Dick's Crab Shack". It took me a couple of minutes to stop laughing. Big grin

Unfortunately for me I didn't eat there. I had some friends that did but I didn't. The place looked pretty cool though.

I pointed out Aruba's "Dushi Yogurt" to a flight attendant on her first trip there. She said: "Oh! I'll have the Massengill."

Reno used to have a Chinese restaurant called The House of Lung Fung which must sound better in Chinese.
