The VD-One Store

Walking down the streets of beautiful Kiev, I was shocked to come across the VD-One store.  (For my EFL readers, in English VD is short for Venereal Disease or one of the many diseases a person can get by partaking in risky sexual practices.) At first I consider the possibility that the store owner misspelled what he or she wanted to call his/her store, as "VD-Won" would make more sense than "VD-One".  Then, I thought, "Now there is store where people just get VD and cut out the middle person?"  I decided with great hesitation to enter the store to discover it was a men's clothing store, but this made me question that maybe it was a clothing store for men who did wear what they should have wore the first time, if you catch my drift.  But as it turned out it was merely a clothing store and I felt a lot safer walking down the street.

cool blog. Did you ever eat spunk in denmark? It's a type of liquorish candy. I think they must know what it means, though, because the candy are sort of comma shaped... :)
