Shops, signs, etc. named 'Penny Arcade'

Hi everyone. I'm pretty new here (in fact its my first post) and have read a bunch of PA comics before. I joined the forum to show a picture of a hairdressing salon named "Penny Arcade" here in Melbourne, Australia. When I first saw the shop, it reminded me of this website.

Pretty low quality picture as I took it with my mobile while I was in the car.

Was wondering if anyone else have come across shops/signs/etc named "Penny Arcade" even though it has no actual connection to a 'penny arcade'?

    Ok new meat, that was a pretty decent OP for a new guy. Don't let it go to your head and start making new threads left and right. Oh, and welcome to SE.

    My sentiments exactly. Welcome welcome.

    I know of a place with a "Penny Arcade" (or at least it used to have one) at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH. I'm pretty sure it's closed this time of year and I haven't been in forever. If I'm still in the New England area this summer I'll snap a shot.

    Hey seph, feel free to be a dick to him and tell him how fat his mother is and what a fag he must be and how many dicks he must suck every day. Would that make you feel better?

    Using the term new meat just makes you sound like a flexing

    "I AM INTERNET BADASS"

    Oh for fucks sake, we routinely roast guys that start new threads on their join date and all I say is, "hey decent first post but don't go crazy making new threads and welcome". You guys are fucking incredible. It's either not enough cocks and dicks in assholes for your liking, or if there aren't any cocks and dicks then you complain someone's not inclusive enough. Fuck both of you.

    We hardly at all roast new people anymore
    His topic was new, i haven't seen it done in like 6 months to a year at least

    You were all, "Good move, newbie. But don't screw up! Cause I'll be there, watching you! And if you fuck up! It's your ass newbie!"

    When in reality nothing would happen, it just sounds ridiculous and you know it.

    No, what's incredible is that you think you're the fucking arbiter here. You want to flame somebody go ahead and do it, but your post was retarded to the max.

    Kindly point out where I said anything like this? Really, quote the part of my op where I say this. I'm waiting.
    I merely suggested he not go crazy making new threads. If that's too harsh for your liking then how about I send the next new person that creates a thread on their join date some flowers and a box of chocolates. Is that inclusive enough for you?

    In short, you're being far more of a dick than I wasn't even trying to be.

    flowers and choclates

    i could wear the flowers in my hair while i stuff my face full of chocolawtnawmnawm

    You're also being a technical douche. You know I know you didn't say what I wrote, but I was saying "this is what your attitude was like" and you come in and quote and bold my phrase "I DID NOT SAY THESE WORDS, PLEASE POINT ME IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ALLEGED SENTENCE!"

    what are you gonna bold that too and go into some kind of moronic logic loop

    nice dog pic at the end though, you're like a shitty internet emeril "BAM!"

    Just because you infer that I'm being a cocky asshole does not make me a cocky asshole. This is so fucking obvious that I shouldn't have to point this out to you, but I guess you're happier just assuming that the world must conform to your perceptions.

    i think what seph is saying is that it is more inclusive if you dont feel the need to acknowledge that they are new


    it is kind of like complimenting every chinese person you talk to on how good their english is
