Yay, another business that doesn’t take itself too seriously! It’s a business I spotted called ‘Trophy Wife’! This one specialises in Nail Art and Manicures and obviously the owner and staff like having a bit of a laugh at themselves and this particular slang term which can often be viewed as a tad derogatory.
This business name definitely gained my attention!
For those you are still learning a bit of Australian Slang or British Slang, a Trophy Wife is defined as a young, attractive woman who is often viewed as a status symbol for an older man.
Not exactly flattering, but slang terms usually arise for a reason!
I spotted this funny business name sign in the suburb of Richmond, in Melbourne, Australia when I was on a tram on the way back to the CBD and it had pulled up to a stop literally next to the sign.
If you go straight to the Trophy Wife website, I had a bit of a laugh when it said ‘Why the name Trophy Wife? In this instance it is a tongue-in-cheek take on an out-dated social term we are politely taking aim at.’
