    I was told this story by a good friend of mine – so it could be completely made up but anyway…

    There was a company that made garden gnomes and decided to call themselves British Gnome Stores. British Home Stores (or BHS to those of you younger than 40) pursued them through the courts on the grounds that the company name was too similar to their long-established brand. The judge found in BHS’s favour so the garden gnome making company were compelled to change their name. The new name they came up with was The National Elf Service.

    Any one else got any other funny company names to share?

    If you’re in Sheffield and want a Christmas tree, there’s still time to get one from “The Tree Amigos”.
