Poorly Named

Whilst in the UK, I have just had occasion to visit the small town of Haywards Heath. Sadly I was without camera when chancing across a sign pointing down a small alley that read

Pieces of Eight Pets

I don't know if the people that named the company actually thought about this but it certainly made me laugh out loud with warped imagination assming that it was the start of some sort of 'Fatal Attraction' treasure hunt.

'Pieces of Eight Pets'? I'm sure I saw that as an option on the menu in a restaurant in Hangzhou.

Perhaps that answers the mystery of 'Eight Treasures Rice'
