Hey - we're a Mexican / English fusion restaurant...Think of something snappy, incorporating both countries
the comedy continues inside. They have a large 3D multi-media painting/sculpture of Robin Hood fighting Zorro coming out of one wall. There is buried 'treasure' below glass floor panels. The cocktail menu is written in a hiliariously mispelt broken english with phrases like `this cocktail combines the pwoers of the heroes for invigorating flavor - try it for dangeros glory!`. Inexplicably all the staff are Thai.
BEST. SHOPFRONT. EVER
more of a guilty laugh/cringe:
it's in King's Norton, Birmingham. They must have thought 'Sophie's Choice...that sounds familiar, must be a phrase from somewhere. Good name!'
(which actually makes no difference whatsoever)
research tells me the one on Pershore Road South, Birmingham, has changed it's name to Sophie's. Maybe some idiot told them. Glad someone else is keeping the Holocaust-themed takeaway spirit alive though!
and Panic In Needle Park chippy.
Its closed down
I remember seeing one in a lay-by on the A11 near Norwich
Probably the best burgers in the world'
It may have been a play on the fact the chap who owns it is called Carl, it may just be a rip off of a popular brand. It could be both.
Tesco rip-off near my secondary school
My mate stole a loaf of bread from there once for reasons even he couldn't explain
but the amount of sparkle on this sign offends me.
Took a photo of it when I was there too... how predictable. DOM.
I've stood on that corner with 2 grand in cash for over an hour. It sucked.
They all have the weird punctuation mistake on their signs.
Wagamama styling, the lot. Must've received a letter cos they changed it recently.
There's a dentist nearby with a massive Comic Sans sign on the front. Wouldn't go there.
No explanation why. Now it's called Tommys YUL save plenty etcetera etcetera etcetera House of Fires.
I think the Yul is a reference to Yul Brynner?
but I can't find a photo of this
I shit you not:
I'm calling him out.
there's one of these in Stoke Newington as well....
...Nosh n Breks for your celebrity dirty sandwich
Thong in cheek - for your sexy underwear
and a sewage company with the slogan "number 1 for your number 2's" all over their vans.
Its the best tool shop in the north of england. I would definitely buy my tools there if I lived in the north of england
This shop just around the corner usually has a couple of fake sheep outside, but obviously didn't when the Google car went past
but there used to be a shop at the Turnpike Lane/shitty end of Wood Green High Road called "BEAUTIFUL GIFT WORLD", with the subheading tag line of "beautiful gifts for everyone!"
it mostly sold cleaning supplies and kitchen roll
seems to be gone now :'(
Made me laugh far more than it should have done...
I didn't find out this fact until she was getting married. I also have no idea why.
The Unlimited Bream Company
Desperately hope that 'The Nichola Adams Experience' doesn't even exist. Just number 2.
