    The thread wasn't dead, just resting ;-)

    Default Whatever happened to 'Punny' names

    For what it's worth - and only because theis topic has been revived from its 'resting' status . .

    In Auckland (New Zealand), during the '80's Falcon Transport Ltd operated a Door-to-Door delivery service throughout the city.

    Their advertising motos varied depending on the owner-operator, but included in the gems which appeared on the sides of their trucks were the following:

    The Best FALCON Service Anywhere
    You won't get better FALCON service
    We're FALCON Better than the rest

    There were doubtless others, but you get the idea.

    Sadly, Falcon seem to have disappeared during the 1990's.

    Any other similar from out in the big wide world?
