Fun Business Names

Postby Slava » Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:21 pm

From a site called hypervocal comes this amusing 10-item list of business names that rely on word humor.

I came to it via a Slate.com piece just over a month ago. It's quite short and not all that great in and of itself. However, it did ask for other sitings of such punnery at the end. I cannot access Slate commentary, but maybe someone out there can and is willing to pluck a few pearls to share with us.

My addition is from Russia, though the play works in English, too.

A shop in a market sold all sorts of goodies for ridding yourself of household pests. Basically poisons for ants, mice, so on and so forth. Its name? The Last Supper.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

Christians can take the misuse of the words "The Last Supper" with not more than a wince. Just don't make a similar pun about an Islamic topic.
