The photo isn't odd...

You can participate in Odd Shots on any Monday by posting an Odd Shot and adding a comment to my current Odd Shot post--notably, this one. I keep the Odd Shots blogroll in the sidebar more or less up to date. The details can be found by clicking the Odd Shots camera over there.


...but I had to have a laugh at the name of the company.




In case it is not familiar outside North America, there is a popular truck and utility trailer rental firm called U-Haul.

A good name always helps & that's such a fun one too.

I do believe we have this company "U-Haul" in Australia, but I have never seen "I Haul". Hilarious!

Here is my response this week!

Nice work, Katney!

Dragonstar said...

This one's great. I sometimes see a breakdown truck labeled '23½ Hour Recovery', which I thought was fun - and memorable.

Hilda said...

LOL! Ever since the iPod came out, there's been so many products named i-something. It's crazy!

My odd shot is Spiky skyline.

Happy Odd Shot Monday!

CrazyCath said...

That's a great play on words. Mine is up too.

Live said...

That's funny! I love how some people are entrepreneurial and creative, just trying to make ends meet. This is a great shot. (reluctantfarmchik)

I think that is a fantastic odd shot. I think we have all been in their shoes one time or another!

Daryl said...

Similar themes this morning, Katney ...

Happy Monday!

Nice idea. One way to get your messgae across.

Jan said...

You're right, that's an eye catching name.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Hi Katney,
this is my first odd shot Monday. Thank you for hosting this.
your "I Haul" capture is quite funny! Very good!
; )

PERBS said...

Catchy name and people will remember it because of the more known one, U haul. I had never seen such before. maybe it's local?

Thanks for the name correction -- I was tired when I put i up finally. I can't even remember what a Coleus is. . . back to bed!

Louis la Vache said...

I love it! What a great idea for an entreprenurial enterprise!

Luke Wiley said...

The "I" advertising has worked very well for apple. Nice!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Great shot

holly said...

that's funny. and it still leaves so much franchising uncovered.

we-haul
they-haul
us-haul

okay that's probably it.

Rocky Mtn. Girl said...

Yes, that definitely made me giggle! Great capture!!!

AVCR8TEUR said...

That is hilarious! Someone's got a sense of humor. I think people would do a double-take if they saw that truck sign.

Gattina said...

Very funny, lol !
I always miss to put my link here on Mondays because when you publish, it's already Monday afternoon here and then I am not at my computer anymore !

Blue said...

Thank-you so much for the advice re downloading photo's.

You are right! If shots are loaded to Blogger 'LARGE' they do enlarge for others to view.

I do appreciate the tip.
Best wishes
Blue

Mary said...

That is very funny...a great play on words! Smart, too because in the phone book "I" will come before "U".
