    Some names of companies or products are poorly chosen or just unfortunate. Either way... they're hilarious from time to time.
    The grocery around the corner is owned by Mr. Baker. The company supplying medical home care devices is called "legg chopper".
    And this... Dutch liverwurst from a butcher called...

    When I was going to college there was a used auto dealer in the town. His shingle proudly proclaimed Dick Handy's Used Cars.

    There are a couple of classic language fails with car names:

    The Miata is known as the MR2 in Europe .. when you say that in French it becomes em err Deux .. or "Merde"

    Then there's the Mitsubishi Pajero, which in probably the most appropriate ever foul up ever as Pajero is a coloquial Spanish term for .. self abuser.
