It’s been a while since I’ve shown you a Dutch window display. But I’ve found another one worthy of the blog. Now, I know I usually I stick to hideously dressed mannequins, but on Thursday night the window of this kitchen shop caught my eye:
Meat grinders from the Czech Republic. Dozens of them. Ranging in price from €40 – €100.
I’m compiling a list of questions for this shop. Please feel free to contribute:
1- Was there a fire at the Czech meat grinder-making factory?
2- Do you really need so many grinders and in such variety?
3- How many of these do you really sell in a year anyway?
4- Is the economy so bad that I should seriously consider grinding my own meat?
5- Is the price of ground beef expected to skyrocket to over a hundred dollars a barrel? Because I’ll have to call my broker.
6- Has your purchaser been sacked or is he now sizzling gently on the top rack of the barbecue as the buns toast beside him?
7- I’ve noticed that there are few stray animals or homeless people on the streets of Den Haag… um… sorry, that wasn’t a question.
8- I have a flock of pigeons roosting at the end of my deck. Sometimes they copulate next to my potted strawberries. Can I get a meat grinder in blue to match my decor?
The next wedding I go to, the lucky couple is SO getting this hamburger press.
