I'd just like to point out that these "companies" are meant to parody companies that exist in pop culture today.

The Blarneys Stout would be more likened to Guinness. I haven't even heard of the other company. While the names are more in tune obviously, I think the point is to reflect famous real word counterparts. And the logo itself is very similar to the actual Guinness logo.

Well, then give us your two cents, cyrix. Help is always welcome, haha.

I'll change it to Guinness.

Well there's Miss T, reminds me of TJ MAXX. A discount clothing store.

Pharaoh. Borders maybe? Barnes and Noble? Both have similar logos.

Redwood reminds me of Marlboro which have a traditionally red package and similar font.

RS Haul could be U-Haul

Yeah RS Haul is clearly U-Haul with a humorous slogan (dumping your load...pooping..harhar)

Also Didier Sachs has a similar name to Saks Fifth Avenue, a luxurious clothing store, and a similar design to D&G (Dolce & Gabbana), a designer clothing store.

Rappo on the Parodies page, Burger Shot could also be related to portion size and obesity. I saw on GTAIV website the interior and there was a 6lb. Burger in there, lol!!!

And the Dusche liquor, is referring to the the cleansing of vaginal irrigation device, otherwise known as Douche, I learned that from Health class in college. I'ze smart now that I know that ( Ahuh, huh).

Well they have KFC/Taco Bell stores that are combined into one. Same with Pizza Hut/KFC. So it's fair to say both. Plus the visual style of the stores themselves mock taco bell.

well actually dusche is german for "shower" (related words like ducha appear in many other languages). although it may be a play on words for douche, the full name of the liquor translates to "golden shower." while it may refer to being drenched with beer, golden showers are more commonly associated with people who have urine fetishes - golden showers = getting pissed on

lovely i know

I've found another business, in a very early screenshot of GTA. Stanley's Fireproof Door Co., its probably no big deal just another business name/parody of something.

Nathan's? Are you entirely sure?

Anyway, back with updates.
I have examined the new screens, as well as new old ones, and found additional companies.

Spenders, K107, Pizza Time and Prolaps are among these.
