Does this seem a little strange to anyone but me?

Seems perfectly normal to me, especially if you were born and raised in Michigan.

Reminds me of the drive through liquor stores in Ohio.

Once in a restaurant - small diner type style - there was sign: an arrow pointing to restrooms, then right next to it - was everything alright?

Whenever I remember that meal, I have a good chuckle.

We have those in Michigan too. Only we call them "party stores".

Ever been to the Gay Bar in Gay? they have great shirts!

I got an email recently with a photo of a big tower with three signs on it ... the top and bottom signs were for Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us -- in between was a sign for Hooters ...

I'm picky about the color -- I'd only get a gray Gay Gay Bar Tee.

Yea, I've even got a picture of me standing next to the sign :)

I'm in Detroit ... we don't have places like that around here ... so yeah, it does seem strange ... must be an 'up north' thing!

There was once a gun and carpet store in St. Clair Shores, MI in the suburbs of Detroit.

About 20 years ago on Mack and Rosedale, It was called Gly's gun and Carpet. I went to school with a guy whose dad owned the place.

I guess that's better than a gunshop and a bar together.

There's also a gunshop in Fenton called Guns Galore. I always thought that was an interesting name.

Hmmm... I should check into that I could use a haircut and a gun...

I used to pass a place every day called Bob's Bait & Sandwiches. I always wondered which was which and how they knew the difference.

You should try the bait burger. Mmmmm...
