Ambiguous company names

#1
There's a company in Nottingham, UK called "Bordeline Fencing". At first I thought that they had it right, in that's where you put your fencing, but then I started to consider if the company name described the quality of what they offered.

Another case is this: "Smith and Sons High-class Family Butchers". So do these geezers really run a line in offing the aristocracy, or have I erred in my estimation?

Any others?

If I don't get stoned on this after another 10 litres, you guys are gonna get whacked.
You dull fukcwit.
Go ahead, do better. That is a typical failing of critics on this site. I like a crit from, say, Flash, because the man can do a post himself which is worthy, and there are others equally good. Go back to the chickenhutch.

My mate runs a cleaning firm, he employs mainly south american people, he wanted to call the firm ethnic cleaning!

'Get your building ethnically cleansed!'

I thought it was a winner, he bottled it in the end.

Yes, everyone has websites, but some don't think before register a domain.
