Most of these are so so.

Curl Up And Dye comes from 1988's Earth Girls Are Easy.

I don't think I could eat at a place called, Meat U There or Lord of the Fries.

Years ago I once told a college professor friend I was a great masturbator and he quipped that he should take me with him when he goes fishing.

A high school buddy took over a bar in West Liberty, WV (a small college town) back in the '70s and called it Stumble Inn.

Bookstores came to mind when I saw this post. I seem to recall encountering some I can't think of off the top of my head that aren't on this list:

In Bellaire, Oh there use to be a funeral home named Dunnaway.

Thai food places have gone pun crazy. In Portland, OR, there is Thai Noon, and ThaiPod.

In Berkeley, there was a haircutting place called Alexander Pope. Not quite a pun, but some sort of serious cleverness.

The bigger but less amusing challenge, palindrome business names:

Elite Tile
Yreka Bakery (an unbeatable palindrome name; Yreka is a town in California)

Those are great. I guess only English majors appreciate the Pope one.
