All Chinese restaurants must have at least one of the following in their name: Panda, Jade, Garden, Wong's/Chan's/etc.

Rather worryingly, there is a chinese restaurant in Southampton that bucks cornixt's trend - it is the lovingly named Pearl Harbour.

Your guess is as good as mine as to why they plumped for that one.

There's a chain of shops selling gas and electric fires with branches across the North West.

The name? Grate Expectations.

No, really: http://www.grateexpectations.co.uk/

Why would you want an electric fire with branches?

So you can set fire to the branches and keep warm in a power cut. Honestly, don't people know anything!
