One of these things must GO!

So... I'm cruising the "family" blogroll and run across a nice little post by Blog-Niece (and fellow MuNuvian) Sissy. She describes some interesting things that she saw on her trip home from her vacation/blogmeet (of which I'm very jealous by the way.) Here's a quote of one:

I passed the largest cross I have ever seen in my life. It was right off the interstate. My guestimate was it was probably about 20 feet tall. Then, about 20 feet away, there was a huge Adult Store, about the size of a walmart (before the supercenters). I had to laugh! Nothing like some intimidation while walking in to buy/view your porn.

I believe that I am familiar with the establishment that she speaks of. (Hey, I'm single. Gimme a break) It's a monolithic Pink edifice (Why are porn shops always pink?) that is well visible from the Interstate. The cross? Absolutely can't miss it. Something like 60 feet tall, by 40 feet wide, White Cross. Kinda cool actually.

You may not know that I have absolutely zero issue with either of these buildings, their proximity to one another (although it's damn-funny), or what they symbolize individually. But...one of the structures has to go. Yup. Gotta be torn down. Sure, the matter is in litigation, but the rules are strict. It's not in compliance with the law of the land, so its destruction is imminent. How much the subject is politically polarized is immaterial, it's all about building codes.

The cross is too tal, too close to the "other structure", and it's not attached to the ground by guy wires . A good strong storm could blow that mother over and make it crash into the porn shop, so the Cross must come down. They could move it further up (or down) the road, and it wouldn't be an issue, but as it stands, the public's safety is in mind.

I find that funny. Thanks for the thought Sissy.

Well, that's probably what they want to happen. For the cross to come down and destory the establishment.

I wish you could have seen how long I laughed about this!

You might not remember, but those two items - the cross and the super center - were landmarks that you gave me the first time I stopped while driving back to Florida.

Here's Tammi - reading Sissy's post - I KNOW THAT PLACE! I KNOW THAT PLACE - ok, not like that. ;-)

I think they should work out a deal and put the cross ON the porn supercenter...

Hmmm... location for the next Bad Example Family Reunion, perhaps? :-)

LOL! Sounds perfect :-)

I understand that the words "Oh God! Oh God!" are repeated quite plentifully in the "adult entertainment" profession, so the site sounds like a great place for a reunion... as long as there is another pre-blogger that we can "gang bang" into existence.

LOL! I've never been in one of those establishments, but it would be funny as a BE road trip. ;-) I'd Go!

I've been by there many times, and I always have a good laugh.
