Unintentional Porn

Still around, now owned by Holley. Hooker is the founder’s name, but judging by the logo, he intended for it to be a bit of a joke.

There was a place in Englewood, NJ called the “T&A Meat Market”.

There was/is a package store in San Diego called Dick’s Liquors.

Riding the bus to school every morning we passed this place called “Bigg Tool and Die”. It became a running joke for the whole bus to chant “Must’ve been big to have killed her” everytime we went by.

There’s a liquor store in my hometown called Red Carpet Liquor, and I didn’t think anything of it until one of my friends read the sign aloud and asked, “So, is that a communist lesbian or just a bloody lesbian?”

Thereafter, the place was always referred to as “The Bloody Lesbian,” even when a couple of my fellow freaks got jobs there. :smiley:

I’ve told this story before but it bears repeating. Hamish, who used to live in British Columbia, informed me that the provincial ferry system used to use the advertising slogan, “Cruise the Straits with BC Ferries!” :smiley:

Apparently, a gay employee had to tell them what it meant. We naturally curse him for this. There is no telling how long it could have continued, to our great delight, otherwise.

In the 80s there was a Chinese take-out on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn with a big sign that said:

FU KING CHINESE

It looked like the C had fallen off.

There is some kind of establishment in Chinatown in NYC called Hung Phat.

I used to work for M&S Grocery, which was originally named S&M Grocery. “People have dirty minds”, the proprietor told me.

There’s an animal hospital in Littleton NH (I think) called “Dick’s House for Small Animals”. Never fails to make me smile.

… handjob?

Sigh…

What a waste of my 200th post!

Ah well, at least it wasn’t in one of those toilet usage threads.

There is a place in Tucson called the No-tell Motel. They advertise waterbeds.

There is a hair cutting place on Broadway near Tucson Blvd called “Hair & Perm” but the ampersand is especially froofroo and curly and the general effect is that the sign looks like it says “Hair Sperm” until you really give it a good look.

There’s a place in Salem (I think) Mass called “Bunghole Liquors”

My favorite bait store just changed owners. Now it’s called Lunkers Bait Shop, but I liked it better with its old name: B & D Bait and Tackle.

Picture a woman, bound in 20-lb test, Dardevles dangling from her piercings…

“HO-MADE Bakery”

(at that font size, they didn’t have room for “homemade”. At least that’s what I assume happened.)

I assume you’re familiar with the original meaning of “bunghole”, yes?

Bwhahahahahahahaha!!

Thanks Aleq, that one is great, it made me laugh out loud.

There is, or used to be, a restaurant outside of Houston called Fu Kim. My brother speculated a wife had won the place it in a divorce and renamed it.

All of the following are in London:

Wine bar in theobalds road named “bunghole”
recently closed restaurant in camden town by the name of “Pizza Punani”*
Indian restaurant near UCH called “Gaylord”

*not knowing how international the slang is it may be necesssary
to note that punani denotes certain female anatomical features pictures of which may be found across the internet.
