Naive Business Names

My girlfriend had a bad migraine last night (she lives with me, can you blame her?) so we spent some time at the local urgent care center.

While filling out forms, I peered onto the receptionist's desk, and saw this business card for a snowplow service:

Now, I'm from SoCal.  Down there, "Two Guy's Plowing" means something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT...

But it's not the only business in town that has a taboo second-meaning.

For example, there's a hair salon called "Denise's Bush - Haircare."  What hair are you caring for, Denise??

There's a furniture shop in a nearby town called "Romaine's Sofa King."  I'm sure their prices are 'sofa king' low...


What funny-named businesses are in YOUR area?  Feel free to share...

What does "Two Guys Plowing" mean? I've never even heard of it.

@Shutterbug: Um... google it. On the images area. With the 'safe search' turned off. Then you'll understand... >.>

Your poor girlfriend. I suffer from migraines too; they're the pits.

I can't think of any unfortunate business names here, but I do know that if you want to apply for a job at Blackberry the website you have to visit is rim.jobs.

So. You know. If the Two Guys Plowing ever want to move up in the world a little.

I can only think of "Curl Up and Dye" and that was in a movie. I am with you, Cali boy, I'm from Phoenix and we think of "Two Guys Plowing" the same as you.

I don't think we have a funny place around my house, though the ones you posted are hilarious!

The Angry Lurker said...

Um.....Google it, funny but nothing comes to mind around here.

I used to work in the Pet Industry. In Southern Cali, there is a groomer called "Doggy Styles" and a Pet Store called "Heavy Petting." Loved them both... :D

zepdragon said...

www.oddsextractor.com
for perverted farmers no doubt...
www.penisland.net
where all the happy penises go...

The Angry Vegetarian said...

Hahaha, I love cleverly named businesses (even if they are dated, tacky, etc). There's a towing company I saw a few weeks ago I saw called "Tow Jam." I thought that was kind of funny.

Hope your girlfriend is feeling better!

We had a strip mall that for years had a sign for a new restaurant next to where a hair place had been. They took don part of the sign, but not all of it, so for years it read, "BJ's Deli Hair." (I'll have that with pickles to-go please)

We have a Bar & Grill in the area called Hummers. It even as two big red lipsticked lips beneath the big white sign by the road. It's like they're advertising head job service. Sadly, they are servicing men in this way. :(

I live inS outhern Florida. (WPB area)A year or so ago, we had a "Gentleman's Club" called Sofa Kings. Their decor was sofas,etc. Staff dressed as Cheerleaders, etc. Their radio advertising was hilarious just because of the way the announcer said Sofa King and in the different contexts!

Thanks for this post!

Thank, Q said...

LOL! Yeah, "Two Guys Plowing" sounds like a porno from someone in the South. That would bring about some serious laughter around my part of the country.
