Baked Haddock!

There is a restaurant near my home and on the outside they have a sign that gets changed every day. Usually mentioning what special of the day they have or the Red Sox on their plasma or something.

Yesterday they had a sign up that proclaimed: BAKED HADDOCK!

Baked Haddock with an exclamation point at the end. BAKED HADDOCK!

I like baked haddock. Does it warrant an exclamation point? I think not!

Beer battered haddock would! Fried haddock would! All you can eat haddock would!

But baked haddock? Nope!

Of course it requires an exclamation point! Don't you know how hard it is to get a fish stoned?!!!!

I dunno. They worked hard to get that sign just right. Here's what else they tried:

Baked Haddock?
That just looks bad. Y'know, it could be tofu or somethin'. Shows weakness. Uncertainty.

Baked Haddock.
That seems unfriendly. Curt.

(Baked Haddock)
That looks fishy--as if they're ashamed.

Baked Haddock...
Looks like they've been baking themselves and forgot what else they meant to serve.

Baked Haddock!
That's okay, but what if...

BAKED HADDOCK!
CATCH THE SENSATION!

To sum up: They have excellent marketing penetration.

Dead Baby Pie!

Baked haddock in itself lacks imagaination.

What about all the lovely combinations?

Baked Stuffed Haddock!

Haddock au Gratin (that happens to be baked)!

Haddock Thermidor!

Baked haddock though? Anyway, baking is usually to do with sweet stuff, so it must be haddock in a cake. You should ask them because now it just sounds gross and now I'm in a mood about baked haddock. They need tough raping. All of them.
