    Barry, why didn’t you ask inside the establishment?
    Since you didn’t bother, maybe if you told us what sort of establishment this sign was outside, we may be able to surmise what the aforementioned ‘Queen Brows’ are?

      If he wasn’t going to get his eyebrows done he would be wasting the time of the people in place who have work to be getting on with.

      -What are “Queen brows?”
      -A style of eyebrow. Do you want yours done?
      -Why are you wasting my time? I’m trying to run a business here.

      That’s what happens in the real world. Try leaving the house every now and then.

        That’s not what happens in the real world when, y’know, they specifically ask you to enquire inside.

    *INT Roddy Doyle’s mind*
    – Did you hear what they’re calling them now. Brows. Queen Brows.
    – Wats dat.
    – It’s brows that the missus is getting done in the shops now. 15 quid a go.
    – 15 quid?
    – 15 quid and UP.
    – O I’d say they’re up alright.
    – C’mere. Do you think they’d do me a set?
    – I don’t know. I’m just a figment of your lonely alcoholic imagination.

          No. I was actually referring to drugs that increase the bronchial secretion and enhance the expulsion of mucus by air passages of the lungs. This makes it is easier to cough up the phlegm or sputum. Expectorants are used in cough mixtures for chesty coughs.

            Nah, you tried to get smart and got Benylin all over your microscope.

            But I still love you.

        Let’s get real, some old, you’re referring to bush trimming implements! :-) I deplore the demise of “the bush” (not being a paedo or a porn fan). ” Where there’s hair there’s comfort ” or so I was told….

    Are these establishments the source of all these young wans going about with Groucho Marx eyebrows? Well I never :-D
