Journeywoman said...

Cute. Happy TT!

Kristen said...

Some of those are really clever...though I did roll my eyes on a few.

Deb said...

Are you serious?! These are hilarious!

Tracie said...

These names are so bad!! The only redeeming quality is that none of them did the thing where they change the spelling of the word to be cutesy.

Happy T13!

I could see myself stupidly watching Income Taxi drive by while I tried to figure out if I could ride in it.

My favorite has to be Dr. Shoe-bago.

My Thursday 13 is up. It is <"13 Reasons Why I Decide To Have Bariactric Surgery">. Stop by if you get a moment.

Oh my ... who knew? What a funny list ;--)

I can hardly believe it, but I'm celebrating my 2nd Blogoversary at Small Reflections today and I'd like to invite you to visit when time permits. I've reflected on what I've learned in the past two years and created mega-collages of some of my favorite mosaics ... just because ;--)

In addition, I'm sharing an award with all visitors in my T-13 at Happily Retired Gal this week. Hope you'll drop by when time permits to snag, enjoy, and pass it along to others.
Hugs and blessings,

"Eat my balls." Really? Haha. Euw.

Happy Thursday!
