On my travels this weekend I found myself shopping around for a hairdresser.
My hair has reached the stage where I can make a wig from sheddings and every time I try and sleep it wraps around my neck and tries to strangle me.
During my midday stroll I found a likely prospect:
This is an actual hairdresser, I did not make it up.
After struggling with the idea of getting my hair cut at such a place I came up with some possible sub headings for their display window:
"Our hairstyles kill the competition"
"Stop men dead in their tracks"
"Midweek Discount - Snake Extensions"
"Who Needs Gel When You've Got Stone?"
"No mirrors guarantee"
But is Medusa the best name to really "get people in".
I'm not sure a beheaded snake haired woman who turned men to stone just by looking at them is exactly the appropriate connotation for a supposed beauty outlet.
Don't get me wrong. Medusa was a noteworthy beauty.
It's just that she was headless and stuck in a bag by Perseus only to be brought out to stun warriors into a rather nasty death.
Minotaur China Shop?
Or how about
"We keep our 'eye' on our competitors"
