#356: The Curious Incident of the Dog-Grooming Salon in the Daytime

Upper East Side, NYC

Apparently when you run an Upper East Side dog grooming salon, you can not only commit grievous crimes against the color wheel, but you can also throw some paw prints on the awning and call your establishment Doggy Stylez. And no one will complain.

And that 5 is an affront to the eye.

Don't be hatin' on the dog groomer, yo- (::secretly agrees about egregious colors and absurdly lewd title::) the fancy puppies in the Upper East Side need to be bathed in style. Or... stylez.

PS: title of this post is hilarious. You should write a parody novel and call it this.

Conan - Just say to the type designer in a nice calm voice, "Step AWAY from the drawing board."

Jackie - RE: the titles, I had just been blathering on (at your cocktail hour, in fact) about how what I need is a career as a "Title Thinker-Upper." I suspect you and I could collaborate quite well. Also, I think my knack for parody dies out after, well, the title.

Much of this is an affront to the eye! It is sooo ugly! I will have to go out and find something equally ugly ...

Sad to say, Julie, but around here, ugly is pretty easy to find. I hope you have worse luck than I did - for your own good.
