“So Addictive Dessert Internet Lounge”

As seen in the town of Herndon, Virginia, this afternoon, behold the “So Addictive Dessert Internet Lounge”. It can’t be made out in this photo (the red light only allowed so much time to snap photos), but the banner to the right explains that this lounge offers a wide variety of sweet desserts and . . . well . . . Internet access.

I can’t help thinking, nitpicker that I am, that the name of this establishment could use some punctuation and a conjunction. How about this: “So Addictive: The Dessert and Internet Lounge”. See how much clearer that becomes? I wouldn’t want people to think that the Internet was the “So Addictive Dessert”; people with more prurient minds than mine might get the wrong idea!
