Just remembered a couple more while reading through the thread (ok, changed my mind and did read it all ^_^ ).
There's a place along a highway in MN called Charlie's Tubing. The name is painted on the front of a huge garage type building (where, apparently, Charlie rents out tubes and such to go down the river). The problem is, in the middle of the building, there is a huge garage door and the Tubing part is painted over it. So when the door is open, it looks like this:
CHARLIE'S __|BI|__ TU| |NG
*cough* charlie's bi tung??? Good to know. O_o
In a mid-sized town in central MN, there is an auto shop called "Larry's Hydraulic Hose". I don't care to hear about his hose...
In the same town there is a funeral parlor called "Cease Funeral Home". Nice.

Well today I took a different route to work and found a full size billboard sign for a new Thai restaurant in town. Now usually, I don't read many billboards, but the rather "happy" looking woman and the name of the place caught my eye.
The name of the new place was Phuket.
How do you pronounce that? I can think of two ways, neither of which would be something I would say in public.
ETA: I found it on Wiki: Phuket ... so evidently it is pronounced Poo ket. It still gets you as you pass the sign...
