Trying to come up with an unforgettable name for your pizzeria? The Internet can help—well, sort of. We did a Google search on “pizzerias with funny names” and stumbled across a veritable gold mine at rockcloset.forumotion.net. We’d love to be able to tell you more about this forum, but, frankly, it’s a mystery to us. Topics include “Hobbits Unite,” “Potential G.I. Joe Names” and “Hot French Ladies,” to name a few. But a thread titled “Pizza Shop Names” yielded some ridiculously funny suggestions, particularly from a poster using the name of Bill Bruford - Drummer. Here’s a look at just some of the “pizzabilities”:
