    My favorite juxtaposition of businesses in one building was in West Virginia:

    Taxidermy [OK, it's rural, people hunt and might want trophies stuffed]
    Knife Sharpening [OK, makes sense, but I don't know if I'd take my kitchen knives here]
    Child Care

    It was all in a house, so I'm guessing the husband ran taxidermy and knife sharpening and the wife ran child care, but it still seems like something out of a horror movie. :confused:

    There is a pho noodle restaurant in town that has a "pho king" challenge. It's a huge bowl, fully loaded and topped to the brim. I'm not sure the time limit to finish it but if you can't complete the challenge you get a shirt that says "I'm a pho king looser".

    I don't own a dog, but I've seen two different dog-grooming services with great names. One was Laundromutt. The other was Doggy Styles.

    In my school days, we had a Robin Hood (girl), Charlie Brown, Dick Ball (teacher), and Rich Blood (teacher). You gotta wonder about their parents.

    Before we were married, my wife and her friend got some unbelieving looks when they told people their names: Della Devine and Carol Cherry.

    I have a picture somewhere of an importing firm sign in Hawaii when we visited. If I offend, Mr. Moderator can remove but the sign read: "I. Fuku". I kid you not!
    When going to the Wisconsin Dells when I was a kid, my father did some creative shooting of a large billboard for a Shell gas station. It read, "Shell" and had an arrow pointing down.
    My dad took our Bell and Howell, windup 16mm movie camera (that was high end in the 1960's) and positioned a building so the "S" was blocked and one just saw "hell" with the arrow pointing down.
    Always got a hoot when showing home movies. It was a giant full sized billboard too. Kurt

    OK, if we're doing partial signs, I've got two. There's a building on a side street off Mass Ave near MIT that says (or said, 35 years ago)
    STORAGE HOUSE
    FIRE PROOF​

    From the right angle, another building partially blocks it so it says
    RAGE HOUSE
    IRE PROOF​

    On my commute to work on a long ago job I passed a sigh that read
    CAR
    WASH​
    on both sides with two sided lit up letters. One day one end of the second line was broken out, so from one side it said
    CAR
    WAS​
    and on the other side it said
    CAR
    ASH​
    ----------------------
    There are three towns in South Carolina right next to one another - Lyman, Duncan, and Moore - which I've long thought sounds like a law firm.
