Keep an eye on that headstone...
I'll bet it will eventually be updated to read "John Wayne Bobbitt".
He is just checking out one item at a time.

It's a headstone for John Holmes. :-)

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I wonder what Lorena did with the rest of him?

Big LOL on this one. There is a story about this name.

I build things for my trade. A number of years back my customer had the same last name.

But here is the kicker. His first name.....

I am not making this up! His first name... You won't believe this....

His first name was Harry.

Yeah, Harry Hiscock... Poor guy, can you imagine what he went through in school! Cruel parents...

True story!

New York has been getting buried in snow; one restaurant owner is making the best of it.

Two from a trip to Italy - first a menu in a little restaurant in Vernazza (note particularly the lobster dish):

And what I think was saying authorized vehicles only outside of La Scalla Opera House in Milan. We couldn't figure out what Olive Oyl had to do with it.

Maybe Olive Oyl was just a sticker someone stuck on the sign?

Nope. It was part of the sign. Seemed like a very strange place to find a portrait of Popeye's girlfriend.
