Would go from 'horribly' to 'brilliantly' formed if that's next door to or across the road from a place of worship.

Terrible, but it works slightly better with a thick French accent since the 'd' and 's' of 'bâtards' are both silent.

Dog grooming shop called 'Going To The Dogs'. As it's a shop and not a mobile service are they just saying their shop is run-down and shit?

It's not a local company, but a North American roofing business based out of Pennsylvania... but...


Every morning I drive past the local facility and every morning, I think about the 100% fabricated marketing conversation that my head insists on replaying:

CEO: Well I know that! I just made it up!

MARKETING GUY: Secondly, if it really was a word, how would it come to mean a more intense version of "guarantee"? It seems problematic, espe–

I mentioned this elsewhere but I enjoyed seeing a business called "STAMP TRAMP - mobile notary."
