Ever see Braveheart? Well Mr. Gibson's enemy-in-chief was the Evil King of the English, Edward I, aka "Longshanks", aka, "Malleus Scotus", aka "Hammer of the Scots." Hence, Burlinghammerofthescots.

No, I'm actually not a Mel Gibson fan ...

I can't believe you don't have Burlingham Coat Factory on your list. Plus, I would spell it Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Ham, rather than all one word.

You know I love this attention. (And, it would have taken me a really long time to ever think of all of these on my own.)
