Hypothetical: You See A Business

You get a job promotion, but it comes with a transfer, but you're an upwardly mobile person so you take it. You move to your new city, and since you're not ready to settle into a neighborhood yet, you rent a condo.

On your first day, you walk around your new neighborhood, marveling at the different foliage, different bird songs, and the ever so slight differences in Starbucks and Subway stores.

You meander down a street and you see a business off in the distance. It's too far away to see inside the windows, but you can barely make out the name. It is "Antoinette's Insult."

Does that name imply a particular type of business to you, and if so, what type of business?


Please answer before reading the thread, or at least answer based on your honest gut reaction.

Seems like a curio shop. Would have creepy dolls and knick knacks and antiques.

I believe it would be a pompous bakery, and everyone knows these produce dry baked goods.

Cake shop is first thought. Then of course my next thought is of large powdered wigs and the ridiculous dresses with panniers

I would know it was not a gun shop, liquor store, or hardware store, and thus not worth a second thought.

If I gave it a second thought, I would assume it is a custom cake shop, with a name based on the historically inaccurate "let them eat cake" quote from Marie Antoinette.

I would probably make fun of the name for a few seconds and then never think about it again.

A bakery, specializing in cakes, is what comes to mind.

Either that, or a shop that sells the dignity that Sofia Coppola doesn't think her film's audiences have.

First thought is either a cake shop (Let them eat cake)...or a hat shop, since Marie lost her head.

Some kind of hipster-esque retro clothing store. Some vintage, some inspired by period garb.

I see it and assume its likely a cake shop with a very clever name.

Then I'd think that the name is too clever for its own good. "Antoinettes" would be better if you're absolutely married to the concept, but it would be better to have a name that isn't a question in trivial pursuit, not to mention difficult for idiots to pronounce.
