    two of my favorites:

    Cycle Therapy (bike shop, now closed I think, in Colorado Springs)
    The Best Little Warehouse in Texas (self-storage, in San Antonio)

    1. Nicole

      My mother in law said she saw one in Florida and had the fun of having her friends whom she was visiting stare at her when she said “lets go t’ pho king.” It must have just opened up because they had never heard of it, it was about half a mile from their house, and they were completely slack-jawed when they saw it.

  2. Dan

    Nearby bar out in the sticks where I live (in the spirit of 46): Stumblin’ Inn
    Then there’s the oriental restaurant here in Rochester NY that’s been featured on Jay Leno: House of Poon

  3. Patrick in Toms River

    There was a pet grooming business on Rt 22 in Whitehouse Station, NJ entitled LaundraMutt. I laughed everytime I drove past the place.

  4. Thos Weatherby

    There’s a “Wok and Roll” in Austin. A coffee house called the “Daily Grind”. And you could get a “Oaky Dokey at Smokie Oakies” in Carmichael. Let’s see, also in Austin a “Fu Shin” Fusion restaurant. A wire manufacturer who’s boss is Rusty Wire. I could write a book.

  5. Debbie

    There’s a pub in Evansville, IN called the “Duck Inn” — and an upscale women’s clothing store in Lexington, KY called “Isle of You.”

  6. John

    A restaurant in Skokie Illinois called “East of Edens”, as in fact, it was only two blocks east of the Edens Expressway (in turn, named for a government transportation official Edens)

  7. Harna

    In Brighton, UK, there was a shoe shop (might still be there, not quite sure) called ‘R Soles’ and a shop selling leather goods that was called ‘Hard Dix.’
    There’s also a juice bar called “Sejuiced’ (seduced) and there used to be a barber shop called ‘Fat Boy Trims’ in honour of local resident and DJ Fat Boy Slim. There’s a Chinese takeaway called ‘Brighton Wok’ in hommage to the Graham Greene novel Brighton Rock. There are quite a few more that have elicited a smile and a slight groan from us over the years, but I can’t think of them at the moment . . . .

  8. Deborah

    There is a Thai restaurant in Rochester, England called Thai For Two. Until recently there was also a takeaway in Battersea (south London) called The Leaning Tower of Pizza.

  9. Ken

    In Santa Clarita, CA there is an insurance man, Duane Dye, whose office is right next to a mortuary! Everytime I drive past it, I think how convenient!

  10. Lisa

    There used to be a bakery in Camden Town called Crusty Bloomers, there’s a fabric shop in the East End called Touching Cloth and a nick-nack shop in Notting Hill called Les Cuises De Chien (the dog’s bollocks)

  11. Greenwich Lalas

    I live just down the road from number 30. It’s pretty good, but just down the road from it was the now sadly departed wooden furniture store…

    “Yew Wood Knot Believe It”.

  12. Ooshka

    For anyone in the York and Selby may I recommend the plumber Richard Simpson and his company ‘All Cisterns Go’.

    Cracking bloke and he does a bloody good job, too.

  13. Elise Driver

    Here in Godalming we have a second-hand dress shop called ‘Change of a-dress’ (and there must be a million ‘Frock Exchange’s

  14. Tim Richards

    In South East London there’s a fireplace shop called GRATE EXPECTATIONS, after the Dickens novel (and David Lean movie). Groan!

  15. bifyu

    In Honolulu, we have the “Dew Drop Inn”.

    While not a pun, we also have a Chinese restaurant named “Fook Yuen”. I’m waiting for them to open a 2nd location they can name “Fook Yuen 2″. (and the horse you rode in on!)

  16. hank

    Then there’s the Chicago area institutions, The Wiener and Still Champion, a laundermat called,” Wash Up, Doc”, the beauty shop, “United Hairlines”, the sandwich shop, “Snaks Firth Avenue” and I’m stull lookng for a restaurant called, “General Meals”.

  17. Stumble

    I stumbled upon this site, thanks for the laugh :D Reminds me of a site I stumbled upon a few days ago called Punshurt. They sell shirts and stuff with puns on them so they used the phrase “puns hurt” and made it in to a pun in and of itself since it sounds like pun shirt. Ahh, I love puns. More like this!

  18. Roy

    A bike shop in Braunton, England that had it’s address on SOUTH STREET, was Called, ‘SOUTHFORK’ refering to the setting of TV’s Dallas, I guess. It’s not there anymore though. I think it moved onto the main shopping street, but kept the name, which doesn’t work so well any more!

  19. Dave

    Excellent list. I particularly like Cane and Able.

    In my home town of Fermoy, Ireland, there used to be a hair salon called The Head Gardener.

    On Nassau St in Dublin, there is a shop selling door handles and accessories (?!) called Knobs and Knockers (and if you don’t get that, “knob” is slang for the male member over here and knockers are, of course, boobies).

  20. Zsander

    Not so much a name pun, but when I lived in the LA area a few years ago, I saw a delivery truck with this written on the side:

    “CULVER CITY MEAT CO.”
    “You Can’t Beat Our Meat!”

  21. Will

    There’s are two rest. owned by the same people in a small college town in Oklahoma. One is a pizza and chicken rest. called Sam N Ella. and the other is a sandwich type rest. called Ernie Coli’s .

  22. Remy

    The Master Bait and Tackle shop was in Wilson NY, where I grew up. Don’t know if it’s still there or if there was more than that one but we always laughed about it as kids.

  23. jess

    An ink shop opened up in our town called T.I.T.S

    toner ink tank station.

    Theyre slogan : “at TITS, we make no boobs!”

    can u beleive how crude that is lol. they went out of business cuz ppl were too embarrassed to be seen there

  24. pattio

    If I had an estate sale business, I would call it “You Can’t Take it with You” I loved the skinny Dick shoppe and the Master Bait and Tacke Shoppe..guess my humour is abit off color..

  25. Daniel Nelson

    I always laughed at ‘Planet of the Grapes’ when I go passed it in London.

    Today I saw ‘Floral & Hardy’ as a florist – that’s made it to my top 10 for sure.

  26. Ryan

    Take part in are convinced that we should be working out in loincloths made of dingo skin, as cool as were within a position to discuss. After we understand it is really properly exercising, you take in fantastic.

  31. Sue Dentten

    Some great ones here! I know a Wok This Way in Teddington.
    On holiday in the Scilly Isles some years ago, there was a pickup truck on the quay belonging to a man who took groups scuba diving. Written on the side was “My Business is Going Under”. I thought that was a good one.

  32. Mike2011

    There used to be a hairdresser in Canford cliffs called “Blow Jobs”. But thye area is so conservative, they never realised the double meaning
