There's a new shopping center downtown and I've been curious about one of the stores in it. Since I was headed that way to pick up something next door, I decided to stop in and satisfy my curiousity. I mean, how could anyone not be curious about this:
They have literally barrels-full of different types of dried meats. Hundreds, probably.
There were barbeque sauces, spice rubs, and Cajun seasoning.
Weirdo dried vegetables.....
and pickles of various kinds.
and tequila worm suckers. Who the hell eats this shit?!
Check out the décor of the place. You can't move anywhere in the room without eyes following you.
And last, but not least, they sell t-shirts. In case you can't read them, they say:
* Tree huggin' is ok....as long as you're climbing up to your DEER STAND!
* VEGETARIAN--Ancient tribal slang for the village idiot who can't hunt, fish, or ride.
* WARNING You are entering a RED NECK AREA. You may encounter American flags, armed citizens, the Lord's Prayer, country music, and beef jerky.
* I like cats I just can't eat a whole one by myself!
An employee who was obviously very proud of her new store followed me around, offering me samples and telling me about how this location is "the 53rd opened in the USA so far!" She was very enthusiastic. I asked her if they mostly get Doomsday Pepper types in, but she assured me that all kinds of people love jerky. Oh. Okay.
I bought one tiny can of Cajun spices since I'd spent so long walking around taking pictures and I hated to not buy something. When Miss Jerky Enthusiast rang me up she slipped a free bumper sticker in my bag.
And no, I won't be putting that on the Scion.
