There are a few thing around Tainan that always make me park my scooter and stare, even if it’s the 20th time I go through that street. Fuck is one of them.
I can’t imagine why anyone would ever consider calling his place “Fuck”, but there you have it “Fuck Modelling and Hair Salon” next to the junction of JianKang rd. and Datong rd. Yeah, modeling is spelled wrong too.
A friend was willing to do me the favor of calling those folks up to try and understand what’s behind the name. Here’s what I got (Thank R.!):
I just call “fuck” and asked them why they wanted to name their store”fuck”.
I can feel the guy who felt weird from his voice, actually the Chinese name of the place “髮 剋 ” which means the place could deal with your hair very well and they just think”FUCK” is a name very easy to remember…
“髮 剋 ” fa ke
sound like fuck…very creative
I guess they never feel that way FUCK=some really bad word
Taiwan…full of surprise
Yep, somewhat of an understatement 🙂 I wonder what they’ll do with it now that they heard this is not a good promotion for them.
