09/20/2004: Getcher dirty mind out of the gutter....
and back into the sewer with the rest of us.....
A comment on a post over at Gooseneck's blog makes a mention of all time favorite joke name "Hugh G. Rection". That comment reminds me of my favorite real life, honest-to-Gawd company name: Big Boy's Steel Erection, Inc., a something-like-umpteen time winner of The Riverfront Times's annual reader poll for best company name in St. Louis (they'd won that honor umpteen times long before I moved from STL to Memphis in 2001; surely they've retired the trophy and been disqualified from further competition, you'd think).
Still don't believe me, do you? Here's some proof:
What purports to be some sort of listing of various engineering, contracting, structural steel and steel erection companies.
Atlas Iron Works has subcontracted Big Boy's several times, as you can see here.
Here's A Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern Division opinion that makes reference to Big Boy's. Surely the judges wouldn't be pulling your leg here, right?
And here's what should be, if only there were any justice on Earth, the blogosphere's favorite legal case style:
And speaking of the law, reader Michael Wolff, a St. Louis lawyer, writes: "I had a case in which I represented a metal fabricator that sued the erector of the steel. My client's name was Trojan Iron Works. The title of the case, I am proud to announce: Trojan v. Big Boy's Steel Erection."Just a bit of silliness for Monday morning. Now get back to work!
