These ridiculous signs will have you exclaiming, â€œWhat the hell were they thinking?!â€ From slogans like â€œPump'n'Munchâ€ to Beaver Cleaners businesses, there's no shortage of companies and individuals that like to spice up their stores with sexual innuendos--or perhaps they are just too ignorantly innocent to put two and two together.
Regardless, the signs above will have you wondering how these businesses keep a straight face.
Implications - One of the best ways for a company to stand out in a competitive corporate climate is to create a slogan or ad campaign that deliberately includes puns or sexual innuendos into their advertising. This kind of marketing immediately draws interest from the media and consumers who find the ad/slogan makes good discussion material.
