miss puke

oh man. and i thought that “holy pizza” was a funny name for an establishment, until i saw this:

miss puke!

it’s right next to the novotel on siam square, near the henri dunant side. i wonder what people think about it when they pass it. i figure miss puke is probably a ‘pook’ or a ‘pookie’.

i wonder if anybody ever went in there and commented on the name.

    Don’t know what’s funnier.

    The menu I saw where they misspelled ‘Noodle Soup & Crab’ as ‘Noodle Soup & Crap’ or this one… but this one is pretty close cause it has a website. :P

    Some kids in Lampang all have notbooks purchased at Big-C. Each one has the slogan “I wouldn’t want to be done without you.” printed on both sides of the cover.
    You really have to wonder where the translators come from for these things…

    I’m not sure that I’d want anyone with puke in their name near my feet or any other part of me :)

    I think it’s a part of a brand recognition strategy. And it’s done by multinational branding company like Landor.

    It been guarantee by the branding firm that nobody will forget that name! LOL
