Top Ten Tuesday! The Ten Punniest Business Names

If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, it should come as no surprise that I like puns. A good pun is a form of the highest art. I find it wonderfully punny when a business has the sense of humor to pun their name. Here are the ten best I could find.  If you know of some funny ones in your local area please put them in the comments!

10. Amigone Funeral Home: At first it looks like a funeral home possibly owned by an Italian family, until you break the name down: Am I Gone? This is a chain of funeral homes in the Buffalo, NY area.

9. Fiddler Roofing: Brilliant and also in Buffalo.


8. Sure Lock Homes Locksmith: If this was in my town I’d always call them to install locks etc.

7. Lawn & Order Mowing Service: It’s too bad they’re in Nashville because I could really use these guys.

6. Jean Claude Van Man: Maybe the actor Jean Claude Van Dam has run into some hard times after his show biz career hit the skids.

5. Frying Nemo: A great lace to bring your kids after they see the movie.

4. Thai Tanic: when the food goes bad you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.

3. Brewed Awakening: My research uncovered at least 15 coffee shops with this name.

2. Florist Gump: I wonder if they deliver by running the flowers to your house.

1. Tequila Mockingbird: It’s literary and punny, so it gets to be no. 1 on my list.  

So which was your favorite? Do you know any good punny businesses in your area?

Have a great Tuesday! ~Phil

  1. Amigone Funeral Home and Frying Nemo are so, so wrong. 😜

    But Tequila Mockingbird is pretty dang clever, though…

  2. Wow! The Lawn and Order people even matched their logo perfectly. I love clever stuff like this!

  3. They are all great, but Tequila Mockingbird is the winner for me, too.

  4. Terrific, Phil. LOL

  5. For most of these I just say word
    I know a woman named Tequila Mockingbird

  6. A couple of years ago we were driving behind a driving instructor car called…”Startkey & Clutch”. Loved it!

  7. Our electrician’s last name is Plumber and his slogan is, “When you need an electrician, call a Plumber!”

  8. Ah, you’re a man after my own heart, Phil. 🙂 Puns are one of my favorite pursuits. I hadn’t heard of most of these; they’re very clever. I know there are some in the local ads here that I think are decent. Let me see if I can find those and if they’re any good, I’ll add another comment! Anyway, thanks for the giggles!

  9. The two that I can think of, off the top of my head are kind of “Missed Opportunity” puns or mottoes. One’s a realtor and their name is Hardas; too bad, I guess, they’re not a family of proctologists or gastroenterologists! The other is something like D & D tree removal, and since my husband recently got me and the kids into role-playing and D&D, I see the (missed) potential with that one (elves, druids, trees, magic; it’s an easy combination!). Oh, and even though I’m not a fan of our current president (an understatement), there’s an amusing local ad that says something like “do you have deplorable weeds? Trump them with help from ABC” (or whatever their company is called). Somewhere, I’ve got a couple or three funny company names I took photos of while I was traveling (not driving, mind you). That might make an interesting post; if I do it, I’ll be sure to point the reader(s) back to the inspiration you’ve given me here, Phil.
