Picture Postcard: Pig Girl

8 Jan

January 8, 2013

No, this is not what you think. Pig Girl is the name of a 99 cent store in my area.

Pig Girl

The area is becoming heavily Asian and the store is run by Chinese people, so I am assuming that Pig Girl means that the woman who runs in the store was born in the Year of The Pig.

At least that is my hope.

I did not take that picture but I have to thank whoever did and put it online. Although I passed that store hundreds of times I never got around to taking a picture, and now it is closed. (Note the “going out of business” sign in the window.)

I wonder if it anything to do with the name?

Whenever I read the Pig Girl sign, I invariably think of the pig slaves created by the Daleks in the very disappointing Doctor Who episode The Daleks Take Manhattan.


So the moral of the story is that a funny name for your store might get it noticed, but fear of the Daleks may put it out of business, or something like that.
