".... Funeral Home, You stab 'em - We'll slab 'em

that was a *very* popular way to answer the phone when i was a kid, along with "[Family name]'s Mortuary.. you kill 'em, we chill 'em"


An ex-airforce friend of mine was fond of answering his phone "Underground Airways", or "Fiji Railways". The latter was an in joke from his time stationed in Fiji, a country without railways. I still use "Underground Airways" quite often, just to see how much attentioon people pay to telephone salutations.

During my childhood, I had a doctor who's name was Dr. Hyde.

But wasn't Dr. Jekyll a model physician until he turned himself into Mr. Hyde by meddling with mind altering drugs?
Too bad his example did not discourage such experimentation without controls.
