I love Z's ideas for 404:

But I'll add a few:

Oil Can Henry's
File Not Found
Hot Swap
The Coppertop
Distilled Beverage Provider Object
The Three-Fingered Salute
EMP Station
The Sysadmin
Runtime

Meh.

I got nothing.

The Establishment For Organics To Imbibe Liquids (That They Might Continue To Survive) (CC404)
The Repository of Beverages For Social Enjoyment (CC404)
The Ethanol and Container It Is In (CC404)


I demand one of these be chosen.

Spinal Tap (New Pitts)


I also demand this to be chosen.

Demand demand demand.

I WANT IT! THEY'RE HILARIOUS AND CLEVER RESPECTIVELY.



Aw, damnit, now I realize I don't have anything myself. Welp, here goes nothing:


NewHome: The Fourth Grenade
Kittania: Fuzzy In The Head
Pleasantville: The Bad and the Ugly
AceHigh: Lucky Drip
Squat Hole: The Other Squat Hole

Eh? Eh? No. Frown

I'd like to second The Suicide Kings for AH.

And Z's The Alcoholic Beverage and the Container It Is In. Or, perhaps, Alcoholic Beverage and Its Receptacle?
Dunno: Z's sounds better.

I still like the Severed Arms for NP. Or perhaps the Twitching Arms.
Although, the Spinal Tap is v. much compelling.

Fourth Grenade has a ring to it: It's almost a meme waiting to happen. What would the Fourth Grenade be? Bacon?
Although, The Spork & Panties also has a bit of a ring to it for NH.

PV is problematic. I like the Tentacle one, and the Octophant one.

K is also problematic. Perhaps something like The Naked Tabby?

IC needs something more traditional pub sounding.

and SH's problem is that there are way, way, too many good ideas.


Unless lightning strikes my forebrain, this is probably my last post on this thread.

We'll see how the coffee stands tomorrow.

All best,

~CTP

I have a few ideas off the top of my head:

"Snake Eyes & Aces Low" (AceHigh)
"The Top Hat" (AceHigh)
"Another Tentacle & Two More Eyes" (Pleasantville)
"No Shirt or Shoes" or "Neither Shirt Nor Shoes" (Kittania)
"The Last Power Cell" (Cyber City 404)
"When Little Power Remains" (CC404)
"Trade Your Last Few Ounces of Energy" (CC404) - maybe more of a slogan for the bar, trading your energy for drink--ounce by ounce
"Find Yourself Nude Again!" (NewHome) - also maybe more of a slogan
"Naked in the Grass" (NewHome)

My creativity wanes at midnight, so that's what I got.

Also, for Syd's "C2H6O in Varying Solutions" (Cyber City), maybe change C2H6O to C2H5OH to indicate specifically ethyl alcohol instead of a possible ethanol or dimethyl ether (to get a little overly nerdy) (And it might be a true concern for some robots!)

Squat Hole: (Good Ail)
[(Bear) -pronounced "Beer"]

NewHome: (Suds n' Sots)

Pleasantville: (Dante's Inn)

New Pitts: (Rigorous Mortis)

AceHigh: (Chauncey's)

Kittania: (Millie's Tea Room)

Cyber City: (01000101 01110100 01101000 01100001 01101110 01101111 01101100)


Kittania I just can't see having a real bar (that Kittymorph's use, anyway)- but a TeaRoom (that maybe serves wine too)? Yes!

And yes, my CC404 name DOES mean something. Smile

Hafta say, most of the CC404 ones and the Pleasantville ones had me cracking up `ienormously`i. Now, what've I got, what've I got, what've I got. Lessee.

Pleasantville:
- Drowning Sorrow
- Poe's Distillery
- The Door To Merciful Oblivion / The Merciful Oblivion.
- Life's Temporary Pleasures
- Woe Is Me
- WHY?
- Bitter Tears of Misery
- The Temporary Cessation of The Endless Torment that is Life


Squat Hole:
- the Piss Swill, innit
- the Sewery
- ya drunk bastard, ye smashed me fookin' door
- the Shit and Brawl
- the Damp Rag
- the Middle Finger
- the Yellow Bird
- the Fookin' Dick'ead.


New Home:
- Traveller's Rest
- The Naked Man / The Naked Wench
- The Rook Spills
- The First Pub
- the Kept Promise


Ace High:
- The Village Green
- The Joker's Darling
- The Last Bow
- the Flash of Green
- The Game
- Lady Fate
- the Chancellary


New Pittsburgh:
- (my vote may be with GRAAAAAIIIIIIIINS.)
- It's RAAAAAAIIIIIINING GRAAAAAAAIIIIINS.
- the Gallows
- Dead Man's Drink
- In Memory Of
- In Memoriam
- The Bloodless Arms
- The Sodden Gravestone
- The Empty Tomb


Kittania:
- The Cat's Nip
- The Lick
- The Hairball
- The Claw and Dagger
- The Curling Tail
- The Whisk and Flick


and that's all I have for the moment. CC404 escapes my mind completely, and most of Z's made me laugh out loud, so!

Oooer! We just GOTTA have a "Dew Drop Inn!" Big Grin

And I reckon the perfect name for Kittania would be "Katatonic"

So my list, including suggestions I love so much I wish I'd thought of 'em for myself:

Ash Hole (Squat Hole)
Katatonic (Kittania)
The Squeaky Wheel (CC 404)
The Flush (Ace High)
Dew Drop Inn (NewHome)
Three Fingered Shot (Pleasantville)
Spinal Tap (New Pittsburgh)

Another home run struck. Katatonic or Catatonic, these are perfect, like Spinal Tap but maybe even moreso. Cats, tonic, drunken stupor all in a single word.

"The Ash Hole" (Squat Hole)



Ashtu would probably be offended if his sister weren't laughing so hard. She demands .01% of all cider profits.

Ashtu will stage a protest no matter what happens.


Thank you.
