Shoppe ’til you droppe?
Blog Guy, you haven’t updated us on your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop in Washington, DC, for some time. Last we heard, it was poised to take off. So what’s new there?
Lots! HUGE stuff! Our expensive marketing consultant wants us to change Doughnut Shop to Doughnut Shoppe in the name, to make it classier.
In fact, she recommended going all the way, to Ye Olde Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shoppe, but I told her, “Honey, this ain’t Colonial Williamsburg!”
Er, sure, Blog Guy. That name change could turn the whole thing around. When can we expect it?
Pretty soon, in time for the big tourist season in the fall.
The fall? I’m no expert, but wouldn’t summer be your big tourist season?
You know, you may be right! I THOUGHT the lines of people stopping by just to use our restrooms got a lot longer in July and August! Damn! I KNEW I should have read past page one of the consultant’s 460-page recommendations!
Blog Guy, do yourself a favor. Flip to the very last page and read me her final sentence.
Okay. It says here, “In summary, this explains why you should close the museum and turn it into a nuclear waste storage facility…”
