Business names that arouse suspicion

You can probably tell at this point, i'm really missing "Comments that don't warrant a thread"

 

I just overhead someone saying they'd booked a room at the "Quality Hotel" which conjours up visions of some sort of brothel desperate to convince you that it's anything but.

 

It reminded me of my favourite though, a chinese restaurant i once saw in Lincoln called "Legal Food".  I mean fuck me, if that dosent immediately convince you you're eating dog meat, there's really no hope.

 

Funnier still, the night i saw that, i was delivering a presentation to a group of students at Lincoln Uni, and when i told them i'd seen it they said that legend has it it was supposed to be called "Regal Food", but the sign writers mis-heard the old chinaman over the phone.

Secondly, was that they'd had a trading standards scare as it was discovered they'd been cooking food in a giant wok full of sperm.

 

I'm sure neither is even remotely true, but i do love an apocryphal tale.

There's plenty of German companies that'll never win my custom...

 

Need a Fücker to teach you to drive? Try Fücker Fahrschule!

 

Don't want to be taught by a Fücker? Try Dickhut Fahrschule!

There's an Eastern European-run deli that I walk past every day that has a board out side listing all their "Sandviches" - I've never asked but I'm sure that must be an accent misunderstanding typo kinda situation.

 

Also, The A to Z of Fried Chicken

 

The UFC one is particularly brilliant.

 

That is fantastic!  More than a couple of stifled giggles reading through that.

"Chinese Food To Take Away" - hardly inspiring, if they can't even be bothered to come up with a decent name then I imagine they don't put much effort in with the food either.

 

"Tip Top Chinese Takeaway & Fish & Chips" - Combination takeaways are an abomination, stick to one thing and do it right.

In my job I regularly come across company names that make me chuckle because they're a good double entendre, but off the top of my head I can't actually recall any belters. I came across one yesterday where I saw a saucy connotation where there wasn't one intended - the young lady had called her bakery business "Enchanted Cupcakes" and this made me giggle for some reason.

I think this post just proves that we've all spent far too much time watching Bottom growing up

My old flat was a few doors down from a "Perfect Fried Chicken". It was fucking awful. Across the road we had "The Pizza Shop" which was genius really because it meant any time someone said "do you want to go to the pizza shop?" we'd go to that one.
