NPR Sunday Puzzle (Nov 13) - Roadside brand = phonetic opposites
Q: Take a familiar brand name, seen along roads and highways in the United States. It has five letters, two syllables. The first syllable, phonetically, is a word that is the opposite of the word spelled by the second syllable. What brand name is it?
We know the answer isn't Burma Shave. What else is popular along roadways? It must be a restaurant name or gasoline brand... I'll let you know my answer after the deadline.
Edit: Okay, it's after the deadline, so here is my answer:
A: CITGO (Sit, Go)
