    I got a quote from Churchill for my car.
    The one I got was "We will fight them on the beaches."

    At a previous job my boss wanted to know why I hadn't got my exhaust fixed by the tyre place just down the road.
    The one called 'Just Tyres'.
    That only did tyres. Not exhausts. The clue's in the name...

    It gives them time to trek down to the Star afterwards for a quick pint.
    The dance company is run by a very enterprising couple.

    If they're all trekking to the Star, they must be Voyagers.
    Dance at Eight? Seven of Nine people prefer it.

    Avery, the weighing machine people, used to have the slogan on their vans 'Let us help you on your weigh'
    I believe there was an Indian plumbing contractor in the East Midlands who used the slogan 'You've tried the cowboys, now get the Indians'.
