I've spent many a happy minute marvelling at hairdressing establishment's names in the yellow pages. Presumably everyone knows the civil engineer joke that used to be in the directories?

Sorry, but the R Soles is not apt. PHitch, or whatever the nomme de guerre is today, said it was on a pair of Western boots.

Sorry, but in the US, the word arse is completely unknown.
