STRAP LINES

Travelling along the M4 today we were commenting on the unrelenting naffness of the straplines on vans. You know the sort of thing - XYZ logistics -carrying your cares away or worse still XYZ logistics - caring for the environment through green fueled transportation.

When we repaint Herbie I'd like to have a strapline beneath the boat name - something like

HERBIE
GRAND UNION CANAL
or perhaps
HERBIE
N & K CORBETT & CO
all suggestions welcomed.
Actually, I'm rather tempted by
HERBIE
ROYAL COUNTY OF BERKSHIRE
because that's where we live. If you've got it why not flaunt it!
How about a naff strapline
HERBIE
NOT A VOLKSWAGEN
If you are thinking of renaming a boat, may I suggest:
GOBBLEDIGOOK
YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE
.
