You forgot to link to your post about Kamel Towing in EP. I think I sent you that about three or four years ago.

Meanwhile in St. Louis, Mike Christopher thought "fuck yeah, I'm fucking clever and this business is a Snatch".

Call us if you're in a
- hairy situation,
- a tight jam,
- a pinch,
- a slippery spot.

We'll pull you out and we come lickety split, there's no stopping Camel Towing.

Dumb hick, where's his patriotism?

One would think that with all the anti-arab/muslim sentiment in the US, CAMEL TOWING would be replaced with "DRONEDARY [sic] TOWING", just as 'french' was replaced with 'freedom fries/toast' and when the US entered World War I, the name of German-style Sauerkraut was temporarily changed to 'liberty cabbage'.

Why should I care if they name their towing company after a brand of cigarettes?

It's a 'shop. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few photoshops in my time.

There's one in the Philly suburbs called Main Line Hooker Service. (http://www.manta.com/c/mm82mvr/main-line-hooker-service-inc) They had the contract for illegally parked cars at my high school, and the sign always made us laugh.

I recently mooved to Canada from LA and have been looking for a serious winter coat (never needed much more than a hoodie for the last 10 years). Anyway, while shopping I found this outerwear company called "Moose Knuckle". I thought maybe it was something that didn't translate well from the french canadian. But I think I might be giving them too much credit. Anyway, this post made me think of it. If you don't believe it exists, here is the homepage: http://store.mooseknucklescanada.com//
