HOW CLEVER!!

       
   

(Some, but not much of this was posted in January, 2015.)


I like businesses that have a sense of humor.
  I have actually seen these trucks with their slogans:


CULVER CITY MEAT & PROVISION--“You Can’t Beat Our Meat”

ARROGANT BASTARD ALE--“You’re Not Worthy”

These (from outwestnewspaper.com) are professed to be real.
I have no reason to doubt them:

ART'S ELECTRIC--“Let Us Remove Your Shorts”
HOGAN’S WINDOW CLEANING--“Your Pane is Our Pleasure”
SLIM'S SANITATION--“We’re #1 in the #2 Business”
ACME RADIATOR--“The Best Place in Town to Take a Leak”
AMAZING ELECTRICS--“If it Works, it’s Amazing”
FLORENCE GLASS SERVICE--Give Us a Break"
GLENN'S PASTRIES--“Get Your Buns in Here”

(& my personal favorite):

WILLET'S WINCHING--“Can’t Get it Up?”

These are not current business slogans or signs (as far as I know)
but I think they should be:

VET”S WAITING ROOM--“Back in 5 Minutes.  Sit!  Stay!”
MATERNITY HOSPITAL DOOR--“Push, Push, Push!”
BRAKE SHOP--“Free Brake Check.  Stop Here if You Can”
ELECTROLUX VACUUMS--“Nothing Sucks Like an Electrolux”

FUNERAL HOME--“Drive Carefully.  We’ll Wait”

My Ducky, Lucy sent me these.
Thank you, Lucy!!

 





 

 









And I found these online:



















Not too many cartoons today;
my fingers are tired:








I had amnesia once -- or twice.  I can’t remember----fishducky

  3. Loved those unique business names and slogans.
    A friend with a tow truck business." We don't want an arm and a leg, we just want your tows. Or garbage company in Jupiter Fl. "Satisfaction guaranteed or double your garbage back."

  4. Love all those store signs. I always thought a great name for a pets tore would be Heavy Petting.

  6. I would HAVE to frequent some of those businesses, just because of their clever names. There was a dry cleaner near our college campus with this sign in the window: "Grime doesn't pay." (Funny, but that stuck in my mind much longer than how to find a derivative or square root...)

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
