Recently I saw this sign on a St. John’s spa. Sadly it closed but the sign is still there.
Have you heard these three words before? It is a catchy phrase, and often it is used after someone fools a friend into looking at something gross or something he or she did not want to look at.
We used to have a funny verse when I was a child in Pasadean, Newfoundland
Made you look, you dirty crook
You stole your father’s pocket book
I can’t remember the rest of it now, but when I saw that sign on Logy Bay Road, I remembered the dirty crook part, and father’s pocket book. But the spa was a lovely little place. I went in there one day and had a french manicure and the owner was a lovely young woman.
It makes me sad when I see someone going bust because they couldn’t make a go of a business.
When you hear these words, what do you think about?
