Do you ever get one of those moments when try as you might to be terribly grown-up and clever, you can’t help but snigger at something really childish?
I had one of those moments last week when a flier for ‘Blow Me’ hairdressers came through the door.
I used to get it too every time I walked past the dog grooming shop near my old house that was called ‘Doggy Style’. It closed down quite quickly, goodness knows why, but they obviously weren’t the only dog groomers with such a sophisticated wit.
As much as I like to pretend otherwise, my mind is clearly in the gutter. The gutter just outside the salubrious looking Doggy Style.
I decided to conduct some careful market research – (I had a quick google) – and discovered that Doggy Style and Blow Me are not the only companies pushing the boundaries. Fancy being an employee of Flange Entertainment Limited?
Or how about getting yourself a little tattoo down at 4skin?
What is it about rude shop names that is so hilarious? And why would you call your shop something so obviously filthy? Is it just to be memorable? If it is, then it works on me. Next time anyone compliments me on my hair I know what I’ll be thinking.
Do let me know if you have any ridiculous shop names near you, I always like a giggle.
