I think this list of puntastic London shop names really captures a cultural difference between here in the states. In this case, it's one I very much enjoy.

Note also the link to "Part One," in case you find yourself enjoying this and want more.

Thanks! (That's what I get for trying to do a "quick entry before I run off for lunch.")

Seems like the only business in the US that even try to pun are hair salons, which is just sad.

Salons are so transient that they don't need to worry about the pun backlash - isn't "Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow" the defacto motto for the lot of them?

There's a Chinese takeaway in Brighton called Brighton Wok

And a hairdresser in Bermondsey called "Spendloads-please" - I really don't get that one...

Canadians are closer to the British than to Americans in this area:

I totally agree that the hair stylist ones in the USA are excruciating.
