Funny Names

Quote for the day: Nature gave us two ends: one to sit on and one to think with.
 Ever since then, man's success or failure has been dependent on the one he used most…..Robert Albert Bloch

Been a week already since I landed on these shores…doesn’t seem like it, but then- time does fly, out here.

Let me recount some of the funnier moments of the past few days. How @ these two items from a restaurant menu:

Pappa Mango

Nutty Lessi

I know you’ll guess the second one. But, how @ the first one?
------
Talking of unusual names, I found these to be quite fit for their purpose:

Chai pani: New shop in Baroda. No prizes for guessing what they serve- but, I couldn’t check them out. You know, this is one of the commonest phrases I’ve heard in Baroda, so it was high time someone came up with a brainwave of titling their shop thusly.

Munna Munni: Kiddy clothes shop, again in Baroda.

Golden Scissors: Barber shop out here.

Cold Cuts : I first thought it was a non-veggie stockiest shop but it was a barber shop.

How @ you? Any unusual names you’ve come across and would like to share?

Coming up next: School Tag.
