On syntax, in cases like these it can be tricky to surmise whether the opening adjective should apply to the first noun or to the following adjectival noun–noun pair. Some may be clarified by means of a judiciously-placed hyphen, but that would spoil the fun:
- Vibrated concrete manufacturer
- Missing intelligence officer
- Edible oil merchants—and indeed Crude oil merchants
- Used car dealer
- Small business adviser [peering over desk]
- Great Queen Street
- Hot bread shop
- Swiss watch maker
- Fat free yogurt
- Overweight lorry driver
- Affordable housing shortage [one for conservative governments, confident that we—or rather they—can indeed afford a housing shortage]
- Wild goose chase [man, that was one wild goose chase],
as well as this literary contribution:
and the classic
- Fine tooth comb,
and perhaps even
- One trick pony [How many trick ponies?].
A letter to the leader of a quartet belongs in this category too.
