Funny landscaper names
 
I recently began noticing the landscapers around here seem to like coming up w/ funny names for their businesses. Such as:

Lawn and Order

Mowtown

Ground Control

Lawn Control

(the latter two both w/ NASA-esque graphics).

Any more to share?

Thanks
 
Thanks for sharing this, I have been grinning for an hour. It reminds me of the aquarium shop WET PETS and the bar called HANGOVER FLATS.

Driving through Maine last month I saw a billboard for a construction company.

Can't remember if it was "Laite Construction" or "Waite Construction".

Either way.......:whistling2:

Here's a list that's been around a while:

On a septic tank truck in Oregon:
Yesterday's meals on wheels

On a septic tank truck sign:
We're #1 in the #2 business

Sign in a Gynecologists office.... oh, I think I'll leave that one out. PM me if you want that one

On a Proctologist's door:
To expedite your visit, please back in.

On a Plumber's truck:
We repair what your husband fixed

On a Plumber's truck:
Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber.

Pizza Shop Slogan:
7 days without pizza makes one weak.

At a tire shop in Milwaukee:
Invite us to your next blowout.

On a plastic surgeon's office door:
Hello. Can we pick your nose?

On a tow truck:
We don't charge an arm and a leg. We want tows.

On a radiator repair shop's door:
A good place to take a leak

On an electrician's truck:
Let us remove your shorts

On a maternity room door:
Push. Push. Push.

At an Optometrist's office:
If you don't see what you're looking for, you've come to the right place.

On a Taxidermist's window:
We really know our stuff.

In a Podiatrist's office:
Time wounds all heels

On a fence in front of a house:
Salesmen welcome. Dog food is expensive.

In the front yard of a funeral home:
Drive carefully. We'll wait.

In a Veterinarian's waiting room:
Back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!

At a Propane Filling Station:
Thank Heaven for little grills

Not "punny" names per se, but I'm always amused to see landscaping crews who are clearly all Latin American but whose truck says 'Patrick McGeoghan Landscaping' or some such. I realize the owner gets his name on the truck, not the workers, but it still strikes me funny.

I imagine a sitcom about some enterprising Guatemalan named Diego Ortiz who decides to open his own lawn care business but who, in order to be accepted by customers, names his company 'Dennis O'Reilly Landscaping'.

Not landscaping, but this is my all time favorite, and it is a real company:

Haha those are good. The plumber truck is probably one of the best.

Another one that makes me laugh is this local septic tank company, on their tank trucks their number is displayed, and it is "267-****". No joke! I'd have to find out where they park their trucks so I can take a picture.

Edit: Haha I got censored. It's a 4 letter word, and it's not poop. :P

How about the plumber/septic service that had a slogan on the brown truck saying:

"If it don't go down, call Brown"

Last year I met a landscaper whose company name was LawnOrder...pretty clever. Here in my town there is a famous plumber..his name is Joe Love and on the side of his truck is a big red heart with the caption " Love your plumber"

There's a company in Sault Ste Marie, ON by the name of "Tree Men and a Chainsaw", a play on the movie "Three Men and a Baby".

There is a franchise (i think) moving service called Three Men and a Truck. A friend of mine used them when moving to law school and had problems with them. He used to joke that he was planning to sue them and when he got done they'd be so broke that they'd have to change their name name to Two Men and a HandTruck

Reminds me of the mover I saw in NYC: "Nice Jewish Boy with a Truck"
