Sports Direct's brand Muddy Fox always got to me...

Not sure I'd like to ride a muddy fox. Or wear one.

Hey Paley, ride my bike. You can't afford it, no dice.

An owner of Leinenkugels brewery was asked if he had any regrets and said he wished his name was Coors!

Not for the reason you may think but it's a lot cheaper to make a Coors sign than Leinenkugels. Even Specialized uses a shortened version of its name on its bikes. Trek, short and sweet.
