That's brilliant!

We have a few good ones around here. There's Bald Knob Marina, a bar called Liquor Hole, the Rip-o-Wind horse farm, Holeshot (think they do embroidery for company shirts and that).

We have a plumbing firm round here called "Pipelayers".

Nice. Long may the double entendre continue in business.

I seem to remember one from back home as well called 'Holemasters' that always raised a smile.

'Stanley Steemer' always sounds a bit rude to me, as well.

"The Bath Knob Shop" (in Bath, obviously)

Closed down now I think. Sold politicians and sports presenters I presume.

"The Golden Shower" beauty spa in Abu Dhabi seems novel (apparently it's "Shower of Gold" in Arabic but that's what they get for using google translate for the signage).

The best one I've seen would be "Butt Sweets"....also in Abu Dhabi. Will have to get a few pics if I can.
