Definitely chuckle of the day.
Thanks for that Dick
Are there other company logos that could lead to embarrassing outages?
For example : in Norwich they have a rather dull sounding ice-rink by the name of Country & Eastern
But loose a few light bulbs and Hey Presto you have C*unt** * Ea*ter*
Who wouldn't want to go there?
Gives it a nice ring.
I've mentioned it before, but the principle road in Manchester's gay district is called "CANAL STREET", and it often loses the "C" and "S".
And I've a (gay) acquaintance who's a Senior Analyst - he impresses his young friends by pronouncing it "Ay-nal-yst" rather than "Ann-al-yst".
There was/is an estate agent in Banbury called Anckers who have to scrub out a W every week.
However it is unclear if there was any link between the redundancy announcements and the change to the sign.
I remember a very similar story about lighting failures in the middle RIS of a MORRISONS sign somewhere.
What about Bridgnorth's infamous estate agent Doolittle and Daley
Or as it is often abbreviated on their sale boards.....Do*little and Dal*y
Works either way.
Yep Mr G that's a good'un - There's the Bell And Talbot pub which has often been changed to the Bell End Talbot, not forgetting the Punch Bowl with it's scrubbed out B, one for the RSPB.
The local vilage of Ruckall, for some unaccountable reason, regularly gets its signpost vandalised.
I was once treated for mental health issues by a man whose sign read 'Psycho The Rapist'.
I'll get my coat.
Scunthorpe signs often lose there s.
The signs on Lunt Street in Quincy, Massachusetts were altered by young wags with reflective tape so many times that the city made the L's cursive.
The sign on Nottingham's TGI Fridays "In here it's always Friday" spent ages missing the second e of here.
Years ago there was a shop selling cookers in Tooting called 'The Gas Discovery Centre' which became 'The Gas Disco Centre' when part of its sign fell off.
There was also a place called 'Baked Potatoes' which went out of business and a cheap furniture business replaced it, without changing the sign. For months we had a furniture shop called 'Baked Potatoes'.
Like a greengrocer's shop in the outskirts of Gloucester called "G and M Harware" because the proprietors were a Mr & Mrs Hardware.
My dad used to tell me a story about a company which sold fizzy pop door-to-door. The slogan painted on the side of the van was ‘Drink T & P Mineral Waters’ (think about it...). It may not be strictly accurate, as most of my dad’s stories turned out to be urban myths...
