Damn his eyes…

My pal UnluckyDip has started a photo blog of pun-based shop names. I've been planning that for ages. I'll have to send him my crop: I encourage you to do the same. I particularly love Sherlock Homes in Stoke, and Con Hair in Manchester.

I never have a camera with me when I pass it, but this Leamington Spa-based legal practice is legendary in, er, Leamington.

Me and Neal noticed a new noodle bar in Birmingham last night called Wok This Way.

I could have used the letter 'n' slightly less in that sentence perhaps. Or indeed slightly more.

I also remember there being a window cleaner in Bangor called Stevie Windows.

I googled his name and discovered that apparently Stevie 'Windows' Williams came third in a charity golf tournament in Bangor recently. So there you go.

I'll go and do some work now.

We need to start taking pictures and sending them to Unlucky Dip. I think there's a book in this.

There's an electrician called Sherlock Ohms in Southport...

We've got the Codfather down in this neck of the world. I particularly like the fact that it's not actually a fish and chip shop - oh no. It's a pizza and kebab shop.
