Not a company but may be worse, a Village name.

Well, time to pop a beer...  :-DD




...and a suggestion for a recommended road trip, if you ever come to visit Austria and Germany...  :-+

I once came across a builders van that was sign written with the name. " Bodgitt & Scarper "

My best mate is a mechanic and has a sideline doing custom cars from home. He jokingly calls that "B&S Hot Rods..."

There was a fishmonger in Friedberg (30km north of Frankfurt/Main) called "Fisch Umsonst", which translates to "free fish".

How funny!
Cool road trip, we should suggest that for the next family honeymoon trip.

But where do you get that beer?

(Kissing Petting F*cking Wedding)

You'd have to take a huge diversion, but you could visit Titisee too. Presumably between Petting and F*cking.

As for people, would you believe that there is a Urologist called Nicolas Burns-Cox? No, I thought not, so here's his page at the hospital where he works:

There's a construction company here in Victoria called Hooker Cockram Ltd. They were doing a job not far from my house a few years ago and I chuckled as I walked past the 30 metre pile driver they were using... :)

Not so much the name, but the choice of business:

There's a split premises (two companies, in one building) near where I live run by a husband and wife. She runs a driving school in one half, in the other half the husband runs a Funeral Service!! I wonder if he considers her business as a supplier?

I've seen a cheap power supply from a Chinese company called "Golden Profit Corporation". I have no doubt they have no problems with profits, but why put that in the name? :)

I can guess what the original Chinese for that was, and its an example where things change flavour in translation.

There used to be a restaurant with this name near where I grew up.
