Rock & Sole Plaice

December 4, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

From my recent Pun Shop Name expedition to London comes ‘Rock & Sole Plaice’. Famous in Soho for fish and chips, it’s also famous for the tortured double pun. Though not common fish in Australia – the English delight in both ‘Sole’ and ‘Plaice’: Hence the punbearable name.

    In fact, ‘Rock’ or ‘Rock Salmon’ is the Fish and Chip word for dogfish, so it’s a -triple- pun!
