Intercourse, Pennsylvania, USA, also King of Prussia, same state.  In Florida we have Christmas.
There are so many. Hell, Michigan; Belchertown, Ma; Big Bone Lick, KY; Beaver Lick, KY; Hookersville, WV; Spread Eagle, WI...

You didn't mention that near Intercourse, PA there's a town called Climax.  Also, here in Indiana we have French Lick.

There is a Mr Peter Ness who runs a small Furniture Removal Company not far from my home. Emblazoned down the side of the van is the Company Name "P Ness Removals".

And then we have the Danish town Bøgballe which in the neighbouring country Sweden (with very similar languages) means "homosexual penis"....

We used to have an electrical supply house around here called Vee Dee Electrical Supply. :palm:

And there is a nearby fastener supplier called Uneeda Screw. :-+

There used to be a product for sale called Voltaren Analgel (from "analgesic" obviously)
It is now "Emulgel"!!

For many years,a sign on a business near me advertised that they did "Televesion" repairs.
I wondered why they didn't have it corrected,but it was memorable,where "Television" wasn't.

The second one is hilarious. The Japanese text seems to say "Tradefair Eating Area", but obviously their translation server had an error and they thought that the error message was the translation :D

The second one is actually Chinese, and says "Dining room". In this context it actually means a small family run restaurant.

Cool, then the text has a almost similar meaning in both languages.

Our factory in Korea used to buy parts from the 'Do One Ohm Resistor Company'. I kid you not!

Edit: and of course LG is short for 'Lucky Goldstar'

Inside old Goldstar TV sets you often found a sticker which said " Lucky HIPS". Prosaically it refers to the parent company of Goldstar and LG  - Lucky manufacturing Co, and indicated the casing is made from high impact polystyrene plastic.

Korean Companies are actually very superstitious about good luck (I guess we all are actually :) ). Such things as company names and the ubiquitous wooden pendulum clock in reception.

Another example: Sam sung translates as 'Three stars'

On many invoices (fiscal documents) from Farnell here in brazil, when you bought almost any OpAmp (analogic IC) they came as "XYZ CI ANAL" (CI is portuguese equivalent to IC)... Possibily something about character numbers, but it happened several times...

Always made me think all possible jokes...

Unfortunatelly Farnell is closing here...
