"The double entendre is noted"

"The double entendre is noted" - The Confusion by Neal Stephenson


That is the chicken said...

so how do you dress tripe? In frilly skirts and bright blouses

kobico said...

Tripe is already frilly, isn't it? Yes, I know my joke was offal!

Firstly, the photograph is just terrific. The top third is fascinating architecturally but it is the signage that really makes it outstanding.

Then I try to fit the quote in. Knowing you, you have paired them quite fastidiously. But for the life of me, I cannot pick it.

Now I await sharper intellects than mine, to get to the core of this.

Pretty good post, I reckon.

Good to see the noble art of tripe dressing has not died out in my homeland. I hope you managed to taste some.

Julie, hm, perhaps it is all about the insecurity of the non-native speaker when reading such company labels? :-) Yes, the architecture is unique, I like this wood panelled buildup.

Chicken, kobico, what are you talking about???


AB, me? The veggie?

kobico said...

I was thinking of frilly tripe!

Happy Halloween!

Martina said...

kobico, ah, I didn't get the "frilly" - because I didn't really know how tripe looked like :-). That is a very dangerous blog you linked :-) (no 318 in my feedreader now, puh) thx!

Smithfield Market in London ?

Martina said...

Loic, yes, opposite the short side of the market in Lindsey Street. It's hard to see in this photo that there is a second row of houses behind the tripe dresser's shop with a small passage between the two rows.
