Signs of the Times

The window of the Impact Gym - "Burn Fat! Barbecue your wife!"

As a wife myself (who would be labeled "well-nourished" at an autopsy) I rather resent the implications. Grade: Lame

Redondo Tobacco, a gathering place for retired philosophers (and customers) - Hand-written and posted by the cash register "No Cussing!" I asked Sam, the owner, about it and he shrugged and said, "New law..."

I couldn't believe that --nanny-state that California has become -- so I googled it and discovered "No Cussing Clubs" are promoted by the Church of Latter-Day Saints. The mayor of South Pasadena (far from here) recently had a "no cussing day" (maybe it was a week; can't remember.) Grade: Ironically Hip
