I'd love to go in a pub called The Cheerful Tortoise. The wierdest pub name I've come across was in Chesterfield and it used to be called The Slug & Fiddle, but now renamed to it's previous name The Crooked Spire, because it's next to the Crooked Spire Church.
I take it back...
My favorite pub in Milwaukee is "The Safehouse."
All spy and espionage motif... A passer by wouldn't even know that it was there because there is a humble brass nameplate that says "International Exports, Ltd." You need a password to get in the door and everything! Say any word you like and they will let you in on your first visit. After that it's: "I'm looking for a safehouse." Use the correct password and you used to get a card that was good for a discount on one drink.
If you ever go to Milwaukee, The Safehouse is a MUST SEE!

Well if nothing else we are a very diverse group, from fantasy and religion, to tree pruning :-).
I see what you mean, and you said a mouthful, shikitohno. I don't want to go into politcal discourse here, but just one thing I want to mention is that I thought Pol Pot was Cambodian.
Also, reading over the Principia Discordia, or How I Found The Goddess And What I Did To Her When I Found Her. By Malaclypse the Younger.
Rereading some of Sir Richard Burton's translation of "The Arabian Nights."In Victorian England, Burton's translation was viewed as pornographic in some circles, but it's the closest to the originals.

The man was the hero of heroes!Presently reading "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt," which sadly is confirming my opinion that we'll never find his like again, or Captain SIr Richard's; and also Stephen Jay Gould's "Full House. The Spread of Excellence from Plato to Darwin."
