    I bet they’re not doing any worse than Ray-B’s Pet Shop.

    People here will buy cigarettes called Black Death with a skull and crossbones on them so I bet a place with a name like Sam and Ella’s would do a booming business.

    If it were “Hey Ella! Hey Sam!” it would have disguised it a little.

    People will be . . . running . . . because of their store.

    Well, things close to that happen in the real world. I lived in a small rural town several decades ago, and living in that town was a fellow named Sam whose wife’s name was Martha. He set up a locksmith shop in a big blue van that he drove around town all the time with the name of his business painted on the side: S & M Lock and Key. It was a small town…

    When I first moved to Atlanta in 1979, there was a widely advertised auto service business called “S&M Clutch and Brake”. Wish I’d taken a photo of their downtown billboard.

    not in league with the puns here so far, but I know of a place in Corona, Ca, where the address is 120 North Joy Street.

    On the building, they abbreviated “North” to “NO.”, so it reads:
    120 NO. JOY

    one of the saddest addresses I’ve ever seen.
