We had our bathroom tiled by a guy who traded under the name “Sir Ramic” which I enjoyed as puns went. Maybe bathrooms and knights go together due to ‘white knight’ and ‘whiteness/cleanness’ in people’s minds? Nuts.
I think the frequent knight/trade connection is more to do with the honourable (and therefore implied trustworthiness) thing.
We’re the knights of the round table
We plumb whenever we’re able
Sir Definitely Not A Cowboy Honorable Plumbing Co.
Not knight related, but this reminds me that there’s a bathroom fitter whose van I’ve seen called “Bonnie Tiler”, which I’m sorry to say I quite like.
Haven’t got a photo obviously but there’s a florist in Stony Stratford (Milton Keynes) called Back to the Fuchsia. Used to bring a wry smile when I saw the van.
On a side note, there’s a florist near me called Philip’s Florist’s. A few points:
The apostrophe is awful
Isn’t it just ‘Florist’?
Doesn’t really work as a possessive
If all bets are off, I’d have gone with Philip the Florister, which only works if you remember Philippa Forester and don’t mind a made up word. Also there would obviously be no link to Philippa, but to me this makes it better.
Near Wakefield spotted a dog groomer called ‘Hair off the dog’
I drove past one a few weeks ago called Doggy Style.
I wanted to stop and take a photo, but I was with the kids and didn’t much fancy explaining it.
Walked past a van for a workwear company called Our Soles yesterday. I’ll get a picture if I see it again.
*Edit - here they are.
our soles? is it a pun on arseholes? pretty bold if so!
That’s what I assumed!
You never seen these fuckers before?
I drove past this more blatant effort a lot pre-Covid (not a pun)
saw this the other day. does this work?
'+ it’s attached to a railway station
'- i don’t think i can play dark souls in there
Always enjoyed this place’s commitment to a) a pun that has zero cultural relevance anymore and b) a year-round Halloween theme:
