Sweet Home

From the "Only in Alabama" department...

On the way home from the ship, we stopped for a bio-break at a Stuckey's in Verbena, Alabama. As we entered the store I felt something vaguely disquieting. I couldn't put my finger on it until we approached the counter to pay for our pecan logs.

Oh that's it. There's a stuffed cat and a stuffed schnauzer on the counter. Ex-pets, we discovered.

"Hello, is this the Alabama Department of Health and Sanitation? Oh, you're on a four-year backlog? Never mind."

which reminds me of a favorite joke...what do you call a person in Alabama who owns both a cat AND a dog...?

Bi-sexual.

Good to see you back!

That's just freakin' creepy, even if it weren't a foodservice establishment. I've never understood the type of person who could have such a monstrosity around them all the time.

Strike 1-you were in a Stuckey's.

Strike 2- you were in Verbena

Strike 3- Taxidermied pets on the counter.

Run bitches! Run for your lives! I wouldn't stop again until I was safely in my driveway, no matter what.
