On Shopping in Springfield

#FridayFive: Simpsons Stores

Some of the best gags in The Simpsons can be found in the names of the businesses. There have been dozens (hundreds?) of stores and restaurants advertised on the show over the years, but I think these are the funniest names.

  1. Bloodbath & Beyond (gun shop)
  2. Donner’s Party Supplies
  3. Oedipus Rx: A Mom and Pop Son Pharmacy
  4. You Thai Now (restaurant)
  5. Texas Cheesecake Depository (restaurant)
