Punny Business

A bit of a random post, but I thought some of these were too good to go when they drop off iPlayer.  This all stated when Adam Catterall was looking for a name for a hair dressing business that a friend was starting, so he asked for suggestions on the radio show he was hosting.  It was such a good feature he continued it for the rest of the week.  Here are the results:
