I took this picture a while ago and now have the sudden urge to share. This is a real picture of an actual retail establishment in Shrewsbury, MA.

Hey! Don't knock it. The liquidation portion of the exhibition business should be a growth industry with the bankruptcies and the predicted closing of 10,000 screens in the next couple of years.

Hey! Is National Lampoon magazine still in business? They used to have a column called "True Facts" where people used to send in puctures of things like that. If they printed your picture you used to get a free T-Shirt or something like that.

{National Lampoon are the people who did Animal House and a few other movies like that. They also had a record, years ago, that had a picture on the cover with a picture of a cute-looking dog with a gun to its head. The caption said, "Buy this record or we'll shoot this dog!"}

Another National Lampoon album was "The Missing White House Tapes" released in the mid 70's. Still have it. It was a highly edited and pretty well done item. Also full of profanity. I found my copy in the Baptist college bookstore!
