I dropped into the Big Bazaar store for a bit last night (not out of choice, if you must know). But I must say, they’ve really re-done the place, in a good way. Impressive, must say. The section as soon as I entered, was for clothes, and it looked like a section at the more popular multi-brand stores around. If you remember the old Big Bazaar, you’d know the difference.
Anyway, I was walking around when I happened to glance up a random t-shirt on display. And the label on it read a brand called “Spunk”.
Now isn’t that a bit of an odd name for a brand of clothes and shoes, by any measure of imagination and humour? I thought it was amusing as such, assuming it to be a Big Bazaar brand itself. It got more interesting when I looked up later and found a “Made in USA” brand of mostly spandex clothing that went by the name Spunkwear.
While I’m not sure if it’s the same brand that’s retailing at Big Bazaar and online at FutureBazaar, on Zazzle, and so on, it still is a strange name.
Especially since the definitions of spunk vary from ‘spirit’ to ‘semen’.
