My daughter told me about a friend of hers who is launching a some Christmas crackers this year called Crackers without the Crap. Apparently they are plastic free and filled with bee friendly seeds which I thought was a lovely idea. I know there is a crowdfunding campaign gor them so I will be asking DD for the link to support it. Anyway, as soon as I heard the name I thought I would never forget it! I got to thinking of other clever comapny names or taglines that stick in your memory, I remember once visiting a chip shop called the Codfather!

An oldie, and not really a company name; but I still like the sign in a camping shop that read 'Now is the winter of our discount tents'. (Well, someone might not have heard it smile)

A pub in Glasgow called The Office ,handy for calling home ..Hi Honey I'm still in the
Hairdressers are great at these sort of names too. We had a Curl up and Dye locally WHen we opened our first mini lab in the 80's I wanted to call it Hocus Focus .I was outvoted .The film rep liked it though .
