That Word? I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means…

Aristocracy: They may have fallen during Red October, but at least they looked good doing it!

This afternoon I ventured (through no fault of my own, mind you) to a shopping center in one of my city’s most upscale neighborhoods.  Buried in between the looming monster-horse of PF Chang’s and the floral-strewn Whole Paycheck Market was a clothing store boasting this intriguing name:

ARISTOCRACY

followed by the even more intriguing tagline:

Apparel for the People

I think that someone in marketing maybe failed to do their research.

Because the super-rich kind of scare me, I did not venture inside the store.  If I’m ever brave enough to enter, I’ll have to report back on their wares.  Perhaps they sell authentic copies of these?  But at affordable prices?

Somehow I doubt it.

    Someone should put up a banner that says “socialism” over “aristocracy.”
