      There was a place opening here serving meatballs that they were going to call Balls. City nixed that, now it's Palle, Italian for, well, balls.

      We do have a place called Ho Toy and my wife and I joke about her taking me there.

      If you are going at a speed that causes you to run off the road before ESC can provide any assistance, you may not experience the benefits of ESC

      Theres a Sum Yum Gai in Miami. Always thought it was funny. Also a Fukui Sushi in Los Angeles, which is likely not funny.

      We have a "Pho King" across The Bay.

      There's a restaurant "Mama Coco" nearby, translates to "suck a coconut" or "coconut sucker". Mamá is mom in Spanish.

      "Papaya", another store nearby, means female anatomy that rhymes with "punt" to Spaniards, Cubans, and some other hispanics.

      "Tosí", some brand I've seen, means "I coughed", in Spanish.

      "Rana", popular brand of pesto, etc., is "frog", in Spanish.

      "Bimbo" breads and sweets.
      Gone and missed: '01 B5 V6 GLX wagon, '96 FZJ80, '89 16v GLI, '84 Scirocco, '81 Scirocco S, '80 HiLux 4x4, '77 Kawi Enduro, '74 sparkling green Schwinn Stingray.

      I still want to open a package store and call it "Bill's Big Package Store". Why not? For non Northern New England'ers, Packie = Liquor Store.

      Meh I'll still take my Dicks Dirty:

      Some mother tried to stop them from selling kids' shirts that said "I got my crabs from Dirty Dicks" in court. The restaurant won, their reason being that "You don't HAVE to buy the kids the shirts".
