Not hard to see, is it? You have to wonder how they missed it. Not that I know what you're talking about.

I didn't see it at first; I can see it appear and disappear as I focus and defocus my eyes on the screen. A bit like a "Magic Eye" for those of us who are old enough to remember them.

Near some relatives' house in Ohio is a drycleaning place called FUSSY CLEANERS (it's part of a regional chain). At that particular location, the main sign is in these huge bolded letters (maybe also italicized, if I recall). The "F" almost runs into the "U" and pretty much looks like a "P." I've always meant to take a picture. If I do, I now know where to post it!

It would appear they have edited their logo, at least on their website.

Fücker bus trips - for the whole family

Another funny thing in Germany is that the word for "Ace" is "Ass". It's quite popular in company names. Recently i've seen a van with "Ass Service" written on it.

Fucker doesn't mean anything particular in Germany. Now (as Ulf will tell you) thinks would get hotter if you replace the "U" with an "I".

This is kind do weird, though. There has been a reform of spelling since I went to school - the German equivalent of the OED was adapted: I learnt that "ace" translates to "As". Nowadays the spelling of "As" has changed to "Ass" - giving it another meaning for anyone understanding English. But to me, it just looks like it was spelt incorrectly, although both forms are considered OK nowadays. I had to look it up, though, I didn't know that it's supposed to be spelt like that now. (Hey Chris - I think you're a good bit younger than I am :-)

Ulf, i'm 47. I always thought you were younger...
As a sample, this is the logo of an old-established producer of game cards and i think it perfectly fits this thread

Not quite in the same vein, but there's a place here that helps kids with their homework and prepares them to take standardized tests and such. It's called "Chyten Test Preparation" and I chuckle every time I drive by. I suppose there are any number of ways one might pronounce that, but the non-Greek way is my favorite.

Indeed I am. But I haven't kept up with the language as well as you have.

Errm i only vaguely remember it from school. As but plural Asse... I believe i haven't written the word once since then. The whole honour goes to the van owner

Yes, I was a bit surprised to see it spelt with double S; I remember it as "As" too.

Years ago I was driving on a country road and passed an antiques shop. There was a large yellow sign with an arrow directing you where to park. The sign said "Gifts in Rear".
