Another entry in the “I kid you not” department . . .

and quite possibly at the same convenience store where Stiletto had her ‘night of the zombie doughnut’ moment just over a year ago (or was it two?).

I was driving back from taking a relative to the ophthalmologist today, and stopped at said convenience store (Interstate 81, Va. exit 14) to relive myself and buy a soda. After entering the men’s room and flipping on the light switch, I was greeted by an approximately 20″ by 20″ placard above the crapper, announcing “God Bless America”  and displaying a wind-furled American flag.

The only thing missing was Kate Smith, which may have been a good thing seeing that it was the men’s room and that I’ve never quite thought of Kate Smith as a public restroom-trolling whore.

Maybe it was a sign (metaphysically or spiritually speaking) or merely appropriate commentary on the current election season.

Stiletto: I didn’t see a Krispy Kreme case here, but that could be because the Bristol, Va. Krispy Kreme closed back in 2002.


  1. It is so disturbing how many people fond of waving the flag have no idea how you are supposed to treat it if you actually mean to honor it and show it respect. Cripes. It is not a rock band logo. It is the damn flag.

  2. I’d be happy if a majority of the people in this country could read and comprehend the Constitution.

  3. Keeping America’s toilets safe!

  4. So bizarre! Can you imagine if you needed toilet paper and there was none? Your soul would forever be stained with guilt.

  5. Not to worry! I’d just grab one of those tracts you find in restrooms, library shelves and other public places. Nothing like sepia-toned pseudo-Christian propaganda, I always say . . . .

  6. You and your ASS…are going to hell!

  7. You silly kids. When you do not have toilet paper just use facial tissue.

    [That is my best Marie Antoinette impersonation.]

  8. Stil: Funny, that was the title of one of those tracts . . . .

    Max: Here’s my Marie Antoinette imitation:

    “Let them eat urinal cake!”

  9. ‘“Let them eat urinal cake!”’

    How funny. I am on my way to buy some delicious European style slices of cake from the Italian market down the road. Thanks for RUINING my Friday night treat for me!

  10. Bring me a piece of sachertort too . . . with Grand Marnier whipped cream
