Seems like a lot of businesses take themselves way too seriously these days. Business analysts are hired to maximize profits, reduce overheads and increase professionalism and efficiency in staff, but amongst all this sometimes a little humanity and personal touch is lost.

Not for these businesses though! Compiled into a list by Bored Panda, we have come up with some of the best examples of business owners having a little bit of fun and being remembered not for robotic efficiency of customer service, but for having an awesome sense of humor. Scroll down below to check out the hilarious list yourself, and don't forget to vote for your favorites!
