I hope its just me, but this is how I read a commentator's sig line in the UK vs US Bed and Breakfast thread. It just jumped out at me this way before I looked at the avatar.

I just saw a bed and breakfast called "heaven's door"

and I thought immediately it was "heaven's gate" you all remember that mass cult suicide in san diego. who were knock knock knockin' on heaven's door...

This falls under "What NOT to name your B&B"...

Many years ago I noticed twin gables seemed to me to be twing-able, sort of like "fungible".  Might depend on how sleep deprived you are when you look at it!

We are so used to G's being at the end of a word, that is how I read it too, it is cute tho, not anything creepy, like some URL's can be read.

I have a list of 10 actual URLs that do not say what they thought they did. www Potty Mouth (auto filter)presentsdotcom (Who Represents) and gotahoedotcom was Go Tahoe.

Yes, made me think of that thread too, and ditto on the sleep-deprived!

I considered adding an underscore, but it didn't seem to be an improvement really. 

All other good variations on twin gables seem long gonecrying
