Pu Pu Hot Pot Brings Humor to Your Coffee Table

There's no chance of setting down Pu Pu Hot Pot: The World's Best Restaurant Names ($10) by Ben Brusey; this is a deskside book guaranteed to garner attention and plenty of giggles. The quest for punny restaurant names began in Brusey's college days, as he traveled to all parts of the world and started stumbling upon hilarious signs.

Soon others wanted in on the author's silly exploration. As he explained to us, "Lots of my friends, when they knew I was doing the book, would send me the stuff they saw. In the end [the book] was quite collaborative. Lots of people sent in pictures or tried to come up with puns and out-pun me." While the pictures certainly speak for themselves, Ben was kind enough to share the stories behind six of the images from the book. Take a look.
