Galloping Gourmet here: What should I name my catering co.?
Crowd-sourcing a bit here from the wits on DL! I am going to inc. my catering company in the new year and need some thoughts on names. I have a few:
Olives & Figs
Three Men & A Bacon (three of us run the company)
Put Some Pepper in Your Step
The Village Gourmets
Any ideas? Thanks!!
How about "Three Men and A Brisket"?
Butter, Fish, & Loo
Patty the Pony.
3 Bottoms and a Brisket
Three Queens Kitchen.
A Chowder of Heads
The Toad's Hole
La Mange du Chien
Food, Food, Food.
No Refunds Catering
Perhaps this IS a troll post, but I'll play. The Village Gourmets actually sounds pretty good!
But always remember to do a search/have an attorney do a search for you; avoid copyright infringement (or whatever the correct description is for a company name.)

You can't use "Galloping Gourmet" because that name belongs to Graham Kerr. Don't know whether he's got legal rights to it, but he'll always be the [bold][italic]real[/italic][/bold] Galloping Gourmet in our hearts!
How about "Katering Kweens"?

Delicious & Done Catering. Call it ,"The Double D" amongst yourselves. Drop the idea of calling it "The 3 ????.". Chances are that a year from now it won't be 3 of you working together.

Chances are the other two will treat GG to the same heave-ho he got from a whole string of exes.

If you want to be truthful, you should call it "My food sucks"
How about "The Faggots"!?

I like the GG. He's not mean, obnoxious, or cruel like every other DL personality. He has a passion for cooking. What's wrong with that? Yes, some of his menus are a bit out there, but it's better than the trolls who post here about their disgusting dietary habits or gym cruisin'. Good luck GG!

LOL @ Fusspot Foods. I kind of like that one.
[quote]He has a passion for cooking.
Really? Are you sure it's not all pretend R81? The menu items posted in dozens of GG threads since 2011 indicate that it's simply a list of food gathered by google searches instead of what a knowledgeable cook would know and combine.
Have you ever noticed that his dinners have never been a success? People order take-out instead, party was cancelled, boyfriend kicks him out, bad weather, etc., etc. This thread is one more episode in GG's DL culinary soap opera.

If you already have a catering company, it should already have a name.

Thanks so much for all the (serious) suggestions. And I will take the mean ones in stride. :) We actually had a pow-wow this morning over brunch--yum!--and we're calling it: Stir the Pot. Get it? Stirring the pot, ie shaking things up, and also actually stirring sauces and the like.
I'm so excited to launch the business and actually begin COOKING every day!! I'm doing some recipe development today. First up: appetizers! Trying out some hot relish dumplings and pastrami belly sliders. Woop woop! Thanks again!
Of course we get it...God you are a a fucking Moron. Watch your fat ass crossing the street GG. You're an say target.
Doomed To Fail.

I love the name, but can't decide whether it makes a better drag name or a better porn name!
Why not "Galloping Gourmet?"
Have food, will travel.
I think calling it the Galloping Gourmet might bring on problems with the real GG and, more-likely with customers who are expect him to be somehow involved with the enterprise.
R90. They might also be expecting quality food. The panda express garbage DL's GG cooks up on his motel room hot plate would surely sully the name of the real GG.
Go drink your cough syrup GG. All of it. You are a pathetic liar and horribly untalented as a troll. You at not good at anything. Die already

maybe too late, but I think Stir the Pot is incredibly dull and unappetizing.
Not that these are great, but I hope you're still taking suggestions (not just mine) - I liked 3 Men & a Bacon but like
3 Men & a Bayleaf better
Yum-yum Trio (tho there's probably about 2 of us *eldergays* who would get the yum-yum tree reference, even less who care)
Still, said & done, MRS. LOVETT'S was genius!
Once saw a sign in a Ukranian cafe that read:

so i went right in. ba dum bum. (true story)

Stir the Pot can mean to cause trouble. I'd stay away from it.
[quote]three of us run the company
That was this past Saturday, GG. Now that several days have passed, do you still have the same three or has that changed?
You seem to change boyfriends faster than most people change their underwear, so it's easy to figure that you've already changed business partners.
Have you found new business partners, GG, or are you going to do this on your own?

I've resisted posting because people seemed annoyed. I am still working on my business and haven't changed plans. I'm hoping to launch this spring and have already booked several exciting summer events.

Just because some people seem annoyed doesn't mean that you don't have dozens of fans waiting to hear your plans.

I'm suing your ass, you irritating mincing fettifogger. Call your shithole the Shithole for all I care. That's what you'll be living in, after my lawyers are done with you.
I am not THE Galloping Gourmet! I am just a Gourmet who loves to Gallop around the kitchen!! Sheesh.

I think it should be this, since it's by far the queeniest suggested so far.

Awful name. Sure to fail.
I fucking hate you
Stir the Pot - bound to fail
Are you getting ready for the opening, OP?
Still in business GG?
Come back, GG!
Hey GG, I think you need to get laid. How fat r u? I'm horny. Which state do you live?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
