My wife went to the Boutiques to find a wedding dress for our wedding and hardly got an acknowledgement, but when she went here, they doted over her and actually ended up buying her wedding dress here...though I did not need beer to wed her, nor put a gun to her head to say "I do"
In Missoula, MT during the early 1990s there was a store called "Guns and Toys Store." True to its name, half the store was aisles of guns and ammunition, and half was aisles of cheap children's toys.

In about 1997 or 1998 there was an article in the Chicago Reader about these signs popping up in payday loans stores. Apparently, in certain neighborhoods of Chicago, especially Hispanic neighborhoods, women were using their bras like pockets. The shop-owners said they were tired of getting sweaty cash and IDs, while the patrons said that these signs were mean.
I don't have a picture of it, unfortunately, but there is a mini billboard along a country highway locally that says "Country Pest Control." Flanking the text is an illustration of a cow on one side and a horse on the other.
I've never inquired, but I'm assuming the cow and the horse are references to the "Country" and not to the "Pest" part of the sign.
Because, really, what do you even spray to control pestiferous livestock? Or does one set out traps?
Paul and I loved this sign! Thanks Wilson and Chaya!
Another friend posted this amazing dog poop fairy sign at a public park. I love it!!
Notice the fine print that remarks that dog poop doesn't break down as quickly as wildlife poop. I imagine that might be due to the sawdust-like ingredients and food industry by-products that dog foods are typically made of.
