Frederick's is rumored to be marketing a new bra called the "embargo."
Oh, Ted, I'll go bust trying to keep abreast of your comments! Well, at least they're uplifting.

When I was going to school in San Diego lo these many years ago, there was a mortuary called The Goodbody Mortuary. And in Los Angeles there was Dunniway and Fitch. Now if Dunniway had dumped Fitch and joined with Goodbody, they could have had something!

Here in Burlington, Vermont there is a little motel called the "Pacific View Motel." No, the Green Mountains are not high to afford a view clear across the continent, but rather the motel is next to a Pacific Gas Station.

One of the two Funeral Homes in Prattville, Alabama is actually called 'Ridout Funeral Home'. I presume it's a family name and yes, it is pronounced 'Ride Out'.

"Pacific View Motel."
More like Pathetic View Motel, eh.
'Ridout Funeral Home'
A surprising amount of people DO claim that white horses escort those dying to the 'other side'. :-)

I've mentioned this before, I'm sure, but it bears repeating:
In Ithaca we have a Bangs Funeral Home. Not so noteworthy in itself, but it is right next door to Bangs Ambulance Service.

Is there a Bangs Body Shop to complete the set?
