Name for Boat and Company Pumping Poop

A friend of mine is starting a new pump out business. He wants a good name and has captured the following...

Marine Environmental Services, Inc.

Scotties Potties, Inc. ( his name is Scott)

The Pump Out Boat.

he has all the above in web domain and phone numbers..
But he wants to choose the right Name that will give him the best exposure.
Like to hear your opinions if you have the time.

he also is looking at a few logos and a Mascot.

Honey bucket is one...a Skunk is another...
I told him Betty Boop....singing....Poop, Poop Pee Poop!! Sorry.

One of you gave us the Idea...."your poop is my bread and butter!"
that was great....might be on his stationary!! and...
"We are number One at Number Two!"

Oh..and do any of you use a pump our service? Probably just go out 3 miles and dump since most are cruisers hey?
Thanks go all
Anjinsan

As a business / trading name I would go for:

If a website is part of the operations (online booking?) I would go for it in full or some variation. Regular punters will have you in favourites anyway (or know how to search in Google) so a "good" URL not so important. for new punters won't be a million marine turd collecters in your area of operations, so URL also not so important. But a mention in the URL to what the business does / the business name don't do any harm with Mr Google.

The fun comes with the tag line and as only a tag line yer not married to it as the joke wears off over the years.

"We are **** at your business"
"We offer a really crap service"
"Suck it and see"
"We also deliver"
"sit and deliver"
"We take care of business"
"Touch it, Feel it, Smell it"
"Just do it" (possibly a copyright issue - even with "Just done it" )


And my favourite

"All you can eat"

(think about it )

Well, in addition to my dive service, I also own a pumpout service here in the Bay Area, so if your friend has any questions, I'm always happy to talk shop.
