Finding Adventure...

Another one for the Stokes girls!

 Permalink
So you might remember my blog entry about the Friendly Chapel Church. If not, click it! In that vein, here's another one for the Stokes girls:


I mean did the local sign maker get tasked with naming the church? Or was there a special on letters so they decided to use as many as they could? There really was only one church (and it was quite cute and fairly old looking).

Well, the picture tells the story!


Thanks to Brad for finding and submitting this one.

Here's the much maligned sign!

From our previous post and comments about funny signs, here's the one Ashley and her sisters used to giggle about as kids (yes, it's been there 30+ years now!):

The "funny" here is that a "chapel" already is a "church" in this sense. So the girls would apparently spend the next little while saying things like "look, there goes an automobile car" and "cool, check out that gravel rock" and such redundant nonsense. I'm sure there was much giggling involved, too.

Pet Resale?

 Permalink

These two signs appeared to me to be the same actual business. Sadly, it was closed so I couldn't verify that for myself, especially since I love me some "Clothin." Combine that with "Pet Resale" and you have a clear winner. More from Blytheville, AR.

Where is the adventure, exactly?

 Permalink
I'm just not sure these two words belong together. I mean seriously. Pontoon boats are for drinking beer and throwing the kids in the water. And what does the cartoon crab add, exactly? Is looking at crabs from a pontoon boat considered "adventurous"? I really don't think so. At least not at the outer banks, where you can just go walk in the sound and see a bajillion crabs without the need for any kind of boat, much less a pontoon boat.

What more is there to say, really?

A little bit pregnant?

Semi Oceanfront? Isn't that like being a little bit dead? Or a little bit pregnant? I mean either you are or you aren't. I'm just sayin'.

Daily Double

So you only get one thing, but the "double" is that this is both a sign and a restaurant recommendation. If you're ever in Reidsville, NC, I suggest Short Sugar's. They've been in business at this location since 1949 selling NC BBQ, and it's pretty good. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but you can pull up to the side of the building and eat in your car if that bothers you. They come to you for service and that area is shaded as well. Can't beat that.

Can anyone tell me what this sign means? These chairs were just out here like this along a road in someone's yard in Hatteras Village, NC. There is nothing but swamp across the road from here. It was really odd.
