Yes, we have a few in our house, but that's not what I'm talking about.
There are a couple of businesses around here that really puzzle me. Do they think? Do market research? Read the sign out loud?
Business #1 - we pass this on the way to Springdale: Nacho Tire Service.
There are two problems with this. The first one is the image of nachos as tires. Nachos are thin, crispy, and usually triangular - not a good tire at all. The second has to do with southern pronunciation. "Nacho" sounds a lot like "not your." (For my non-American speaking friends, the "a" in nacho is pronounced "ah" like "father.") So there's a business, but it's not for me? For whom is it? Only Hispanic people can get there tires serviced there? Really, what are you trying to say?
Business #2 - I've seen billboards everywhere: Razorbraces. I get the idea here, really. The local college mascot is the razorback hog, and they are playing on that loyalty. But think for a minute... Braces... Razors... Do I have to explain this to YOU? Why hasn't someone explained it to the orthodontist?
I'm not the only one. Here's a website that actually has a picture of the billboard, plus a few other dumb names.
