Some examples include: ‘The Mother Lode’ (Mothers’ Day jewellery), ‘Half-Russian Heads all-Russian Program’ or ‘Very Slow Headbanging’ (Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) and ‘You’ll always have Paris – end of Collins St’ (real estate brochure). My best-ever effort was ‘Mock Cream of the Crop’ (breakout box about Renaissance-era cameo fakers, who used to insert the gem inside the crop of a hen to fake a patina of age). Did any of these get to print? Of course not.
99% of the time, the subbie will take great delight in chopping these up and replacing them with such tired offerings as ‘Marvellous Mothers’ Day’, ‘Hijacked and Helpless’ (that one made me bristle, I have never been helpless) and ‘Do-It-Yourself Glamour’. Ya-a-a-wwnn.
Today I find myself all at sea, yet again, when looking for names for an article about the hairstyles of yore. And when searching through the business names of hairdressers, what a plethora can be found!
Blade Runners Hair Studio
Hair Me Out
Hannah & Her Scissors
Shear Delight Hair Studio
I am spoilt for choice!! I also found this, a link to really bad British shop names. They are splendidly awful and worth a peek.
