Yesterday we found ourselves in the kind of furniture store where stuff imported from who knows where is displayed by people from some different but equally far flung set of places.
Few if any of the folks in this supply chain call English their first language, so spellings are expected to be a bit variable.
When I first saw this sign I assumed it was just a new way to spell Pasadena, haha, done. But then I thought a bit more… dining table, -dina… maybe this is quite a sophisticated pun! You could have an all-night eatery called the Pasa-Diner!
Maybe the person who typed this up loves the Rose Parade, or studied at PCC before coming to NZ, and couldn’t resist the chance to get this joke into the world.
I hope so.
