Best Name for a Convenience Store chain?

Kum & Go - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Was in Moline last week and we crossed into Iowa, and of course we had to stop at one there............

There was one in Florence, SC I saw years ago that still makes me laugh--the "Snatch and Go".

I have a Kum & Go baseball cap that DW won't let me wear. Worse yet is their slogan: "We go all out!"

The Kum & Go name, which was adopted during the 1970s, is a revision of a previous name, "Cum & Go" after concerns over its propriety in a more-modern world. It was also a play on the phrase "come and go" using the initials of Krause and Gentle. Sales of Kum & Go merchandise, which the company offers on its website, increased after Johnny Knoxville was seen wearing a Kum & Go T-shirt during a scene in the 2006 movie Jackass Number Two.[4]

Took a photo in Springfield on our November, 2008 trip (mostly to illustrate the low gas prices at the time, in comparison with prices in Louisiana). They are all over the place up there. I think the name is offensive, but they didn't ask me.

And they thought that changing "C" to "K" would help? Maybe it gets it past a couple more net filters, but it didn't save them from lolz here...

and those were probably just the American ones, right?

When I was little I remember my Mother saying she needed to "run into the A&P." We kids thought this was simply hilarious. Knowing my Mother, she probably said it on purpose (but with a straight face) to make us giggle.
