When you are out there, you get to see all sorts of educational things....I call it "visiting America"....
Billboards like the one for:
Angry Bull Steakhouseright next to a hospital billboard:
Men Friends With Prostate Cancer
(Is it just me, or do you think they work as a team?)
Or.......how about this one...
Jesus Christ is Lord Travel Center 5 Miles Ahead!
Featuring the Heavenly Hamburger!
Then a bit further down the road, another billboard:
Top of Texas, Catholic Superstore!
And somehow we resisted stopping at:
Jesus Christ is Lord, Not a Swearword Travel Center
OK, I can't just pick on Texas....
A sign we saw in Maine:
Benefit BBQ for Cancer! Pork! Hamburgers! Hot Dogs!
("Yes", I thought, "this event will benefit CANCER...but not the cure or prevention!")
You might think this crazy little oxymoron is unusual, but you can find a pig roast for cancer in almost every state!
And just in case you didn't know that the cancer fundraisers around the world can be just as insane as in the USA, here is one in Ireland:
There are things you only get to experience when you are on the road.....do you really want to miss one of the greatest southern wonders? Jesus appearing in the kudzu? For a small fee, you don't have to miss out.
