Not 100% sure about this being the real meaning, but:

For those into radio controlled stuff, the major makes of race cars are (among others) Team Associated, Traxxis and OFNA

Apparently the founder of OFNA kept trying to register a name, only to find it was already taken. Tried another, same result. After many attempts, he settled on the acronym for "Only F***ing Name Avaialble

I am working in El Centro area for 3 weeks, pretty much desert where it is not irrigated. Drove by a tow truck the other day, the company name is: Camel Tow.

LOL That is true but it is better if it doesn't offend all the women and make all the men afraid to call them.

I keep meaning to drive by the local medical complex. Occasionally they have a sandwich board out front when they're bringing in new patients. The reason? Dr Richard Chick Ob/Gyn. No funny slogan necessary

I knew of a OB/GYN back in the early 80's who had a personalized license plate on his Mercedes that read "Box doc" NO KIDDING! My son worked for a health insurance company and would send me photos of doctors names that were absolutely obscene! I forget them all but I am not kidding you, like the "Box doc" what woman would go to this guy?

I went to a proctologist named "Dr Hyney". Now, I went to him once, I did NOT like his humor one single bit!
