Funny Business Names

First of all, a disclaimer. What you will read below is something I did not write nor think up. It is from an e-mail forwarded by one of my sisters to our family e-group. I thought it was simply hilarious that I could not resist sharing it with everyone else through this blog.

I tried Googling the names for images; and while a few showed up, I could not really find pictures to substantiate the contents of the e-mail. Maybe many of the names were just invented; I would not know. All I know is that this is something we will all recognize as so, so Pinoy.

By the way, if anyone knows of anything else of a similar nature, please do not hesitate to contribute through the Comment form box at the end of this post. To use the form, you need an OpenID. You will be prompted by Blogger, so this should not be a problem whatsoever. Feel free to share this on your favorite social network!

It used to be said, also, that a competitor set up shop right across the street and called his restaurant Cooking ng Ina Mo Rin.  I rest my case...
