Chip Shop Puns

Post by English Invader » Mon Jun 29, 2020 3:36 pm

Yes, that's right, I'm starting a thread about that most noble and sacred of arts; the chip shop pun. I'm talking about the Codfather, I'm talking about Oh, My Cod! and every other corny pun that comes to mind. In Cod we trust.

I spent a three hour trip home thinking of puns for chip shops and this is what I came up with:

Plaice Invaders
A Plaice in Space
No Plaice like Home
The Heart of Rock 'n' Roe
Scampede!
Frying Tonight!
Fry Day the 13th
Live and Let Fry
Fry Another Day
Tomorrow Never Fries

Anyone else know any?

Plaice Invaders
Since this is RG I'll stick with the gaming theme. Aside from the obvious James Pond II: Robocod, how about...

Troutrun
Hyper Sprats
Bump, Set, Pike
The Nomad Sole
Breamrider
Turbot Esprit
Skate or Die
The Retro League - Where skill isn't an obstacle
Retrocanteen, home of the unfairly banned

I knew a greasy spoon cafe called Arnie's and over the door there was a sign that said YOU'LL BE BACK!

Ugh, sorry, these are annoying! Although I don't particularly mind a chip shop having a fishy pun as a name, I find it hugely irritating when dad-humour like this crops up in normal conversation about anything else related to fish.....

Having had time to mullet over, I can't agree, I love word play and innuendo. My carping on about it won't change your mind, but we're getting off topic, that's a whole different kettle of fish.

Your honour, I rest my case.

Breamcast ;)

Notably, there really was the Sega Divers 2000 CX1 variant of the Dreamcast.

I don't know that much fish tbh bar the stuff you watch swim in tanks as I don't like the taste lol.

I vauguely remember that appearing in a mag some years ago although the stylings an aquired taste.
