Yes, we do know of scatting as a form of singing in jazz where the human voice is used as an instrument and no real words are used. But the first time we saw the name of this store in a mall right on the corner of Huaihai Lu and Maoming Lu, we were like, “Oh my God, did they really call it scat?” because the first thing that comes to our mind (and maybe we do have a gutter mind) is a certain bodily function, or rather, a by-product of that bodily function, and oh, a whole range of sexual practises related to it. Did you also know there are entire clubs dedicated to it? We know because we’ve been to one in a cellar bar in Berlin’s infamous Nollendorf Platz (that’s right before the party started) and lasted not more than five minutes.
Seen any other unbelievable store names while shopping around Shanghai? Why don’t you snap a picture and send it to us at info AT shanghaiist DOT com?
