Excuse Me While I Ptooch


AN ENTREPRENEUR'S THOUGHT PROCESS: I'm going to set up an amazing new health food cafe. It's going to serve alfafa and falafel and other foodstuffs with the letters L, A and F in them. It's going to be delicious and nutritious and organic and take the world by storm. I've even got the perfect name - it's going to be called "Ptooch". Yeah.

MEEMALEE'S THOUGHT PROCESS: Do not call a restaurant any word which evokes hawking up and releasing a massive ball of mucussy phlegm. Just don't.

Hmm this post could inspire a competition to find the most random, surreal and inappropriate name thought up for eateries across London.

Very funny.

I love the name "ptooch"'s the sound an amazonian tribesmans poison dart makes when leaving the blowpipe....the only way it could possibly be improved would be changing the name to "Ptooch.......Arrrrghhhhhh"

@Food Urchin - I've got a worse one up my sleeve.

@Dan - Nice - I like it! Still wouldn't make me want to eat there.

@gastrogeek - Leather Lane.

I thought of a big wet baby's poo (sorry!) which while is not mucussy or phlegmy, i would say it is still not the image you want to conjure, hey?
