… and if that wasn’t bad enough, they don’t have anything to do with nails, they sell clothes.

Maybe it’s a case of being ‘lost in translation’, but I have a feeling it might have more to do with being ‘lost in business’ … but given this photo was taken in China – a land that can even make money from dwarves – who the hell am I to comment?

that dwarf place is fucking awesome in a totally inafuckingppropriate way. and youre right to say you dont know shit. they said cynic would fucking fail but then the people who said that didnt realise auntie and me were involved or theyd be right. you cant even organise to make a fucking sandwich plus you cant make any green when you spend all your time fucking blogging. do you thank your lucky pissing stars when you think of us campbell? feelings not mutual. parasite.

China’s so big and powerful if a company was called Monkeyanalprobe it would do well but that’s also because Kmart buys everything from China.

Comment by Billy Whizz

That’s a more insightful comment than you could ever know Billy … an insightful comment that basically got me booted out of a Kmart meeting when I asked key directors who really owned the company given they were overly reliant on their Chinese manufacturing friends to provide them with the goods at the prices they need to keep driving their enourmous profits.

And Andy …

Naturally I thank God on a daily basis for bringing you into my life. George also … but more you. Happy now?

a desparate attempt at Search Engine Optimisation?

Coincidentally, I came accross a chinese medicine shop in Slough shopping mall last week, about as much chance of success as a Steps comeback (have you seen the size of Claire).
Speaking of awful pop groups, has anyone seen the laughable Saturdays/Impulse campaign in the UK? It’s laughable, only saved by the hotness of the ladies. Makes me hate myself for liking it, nearly as sickening as having Megan Fox as you’res sister and still wanting to do her..

Seriously NP, I think you should sue TBWA because since leaving, the new and improved you is a sight to behold.

With that in mind, I think you’re going to LOVE my post tomorrow.

Comment by Rob

So shops exist in China and Slough that seemingly have no chance of success. And yet they don’t close down. The landlords seemingly get their rent. A conundrum? Or maybe we shouldn’t be judging a book by its shopfront. Maybe we should be wondering about what’s out the back. Clearly they’re all fronts for highly profitable secret sneaker emporia.

Comment by John Dodds

the shop name is funny. i would probably have a look inside to find out what the heck its all about! but thats just me…

and that little people theme park is so very wrong, discriminating and letting all the ‘normal’ people stare at the ‘abnormal’. but then, ive seen a thing on tv about it. and the people who are employed there live in a sort of ‘village’ for little people. they were happy to have a job and there was a couple who met there. if my memory serves me, the park gets tons of applications. so what does that say about the level of discrimination outside the park. well, i dont know… also, in an absurd way, it might educate visitors that little people are just little people and very well able to do ‘normal’ things… im very much undecided what to think about it… i wouldnt visit this sort of thing. i also wouldnt visit a circus, or a zoo. but thats just me, again.

Comment by peggy

Comment by andy@cynic
