Shall We Pool Our Resources?

Fortunately I had my camera with me as this vehicle pulled out of a parking spot yesterday. The name of the business caught my eye, but so did the great caricature of the "inspecta". There was no time to compose a frame or choose settings on the camera, so I just had to hit the shutter as the driver pulled away from the kerb.
The best business name I've ever seen was a couple of years ago, on the side of a grand old converted hearse. The huge windows of the hearse were draped with splendid curtains, advertising the curtain-making skills of the business. And the name painted on the side? "It's Curtains For You".
If I went into business, I'd probably become a plumber. Not because I have any plumbing skills at all, but because I could call my business "The Damp Busters".
So tell me, what's the best business name you've seen? Or, if you could choose a wacky business name, what would it be?
