Some years ago returning by train from Oxford area, I kept seeing on top of an warehouse a big sign with 'A levels team'.  I wonder what they were advertising?

Fish & Chip shop called The Codfather. Another one called The Great Cod Almighty.

A number of years ago a plumber's van in Staffordshire with "It might be shit to you but its my bread & butter". That made me laugh!

I wouldn't call them "crap", Cov. I think you need a genuine talent to come up with them.

Years ago I was involved briefly in an Indian restaurant venture abroad, and I gave a lot of thought to what to call it as I wanted to avoid the standard "Bombay" or "Taj Mahal". When at last I came up with the solution I was grieved to find that some other bastard had beaten me to it. (Don't ask me what it was as it would involve giving away more than I want to.)

I've always been impressed by an Indian restaurant in Camberwell calling itself Indiaah

On the lines of a logo on the back of a sceptic tank lorry,  "Warning. This tank contains political promises."

Methinks that a sceptic tank would indeed contain political promises, while a septic tank would contain bullshit. Just like these two words, there is little difference between the two:rolleyes:

On the front of Pink Floyd's double album cover, 'A Nice Pair', a picture of a dentists surgery, the dentists name, W. R. Phang.

A local Indian builder's van, you've had the cowboys now try the Indians.
