There is a sign that is not too far from my house. I see it a few times per week but never really slowed down enough to read what it said until last week. And when I did, all I could do was laugh.
Then of course I had to double back, pull over and snap a quick picture of this sign. The road it’s on gets plenty of traffic, so lots of people see it every single day. Here is a close up:
This sign gives me a few thoughts:
1. Apparently there is a restaurant called CHUBBY’S on 121st & University Avenue (according to the sign) which is just a few miles from my house. I have driven past that intersection a handful of times in the last few months and have never even noticed a restaurant – yet this sign has been there for many months too.
2. Come on, the sign looks like shit. It’s hand written, stuck into the boulevard next to a major road.
3. It’s doubtful that I would ever see a small hand written sign (that isn’t even fit for a yard sale) advertising a restaurant and think to myself “man I really want to eat there.”
4. There is no way in HELL I would ever see a small hand written sign (that isn’t even fit for a yard sale) advertising a restaurant called CHUBBY’S and think to myself “man I really want to eat there.”
Seriously… what are these people thinking?!?!
You know… this is so incredibly ridiculous that I might just have to actually go EAT AT CHUBBY’S. First I’d have to find it as it seems to be well hidden.
What do you think? Worth the risk? Could make for some good blog material I guess – so I’d have to document my visit with photos!
