disturbing connotations

I can never travel through American strip malls without worrying about burger joint names. I'm told In and Out Burger is tasty but it sounds like upchucking to me, and I'm not going to say what Jack In The Box makes me think of, except it's obviously an instruction.

Favourite easy to misinterpret names please?

in the states, In&Out has connotations of sex. It's a drive-through. Their burgers are indeed worth eating--only fast food burger I will actually CHOOSE to eat, as opposed to put up with. I only put up with the Wendy's burgers, after all that. Otherwise, it's chicken or fish.

I had never thought of JitB as an instruction, but End Construction can be viewed as a protest sign. I think it's cruel when people tell you that there are slow children playing--just because they're developmentally disabled shouldn't mean you have to tell the whole town!
