Oh, the irony of it!

Doolittle and Dalley - estate agents and surveyors

Wright Hassall - solicitors

What WERE they thinking of when they named their firms? Did it not occur to them to say the name aloud? Perhaps they were economising by choosing a name that also described their workstyle?

Well, whatever. I don't mind, really, as long as the names stay.

And you, gentle readers with the quirky sense of humour (y'awl know who you are, right?), if you know of any other gems to add to the list, please feel free to let me know in a comment. Just the thought that there could be more such descriptively named firms in this world makes me feel more positive and cheerful in general. Do you feel it too?

Found a cute website:

Reminds me of a Simpsons Episode - where it seems they initially had said "Sprawl Mart" - A parody of Walmart.

Fox Legal was naturally worried that WalMart would sue - so the writers then changed it to "Sprawl Mart" - NOT a parody of Walmart.

Also if you observe some of the backgound - "ABC Funeral Home - we put the "Fun" in Funeral" and the like
