Canton: Where Bad Fonts Go To THRIVE!
Allison and I went to Canton yesterday since I had the day off and the 100 degree weather was just so suitable to walk outside in the Texas sun. Anyhoo, we had a fun drive out there and then an even more fun time looking at all of the crap and fat people renting motorized scooters. America, THIS IS WHY YOU'RE FAT. WALK! And, if you are like me and can't resist the pork-on-a-stick, then even more reason NOT TO RENT A SCOOTER. USE YOUR LEGS, MISSY!~
Anyway, great people watching and fantastic fried pickles to boot, Canton is truly a hodge-podge of antiques, crafts, and extreme crapola. Sometimes the lines are blurred. There were a ton of signs with terrible phrases, enough Curlz MT to last my designer eyes a lifetime, and even more reminders to "Always kiss me goodnight" and "Live, Laugh, Love." As I said on Twitter yesterday, I KNOW TO LIVE, LAUGH, and LOVE. ENOUGH ALREADY!
Here are some shots of some of my favorites. I did score a really cool vintage bottle-cap side table.
Everything about this is WRONG. READ IT AND WEEP.
Fur + Bedazzlement + Grotesque Message = HORRID!
STOP SENDING THESE MESSAGES TO CHIRREN!
I JUST SCREAM!
Just the message your YOUTH NEEDS ON HER ASS!
MAKE IT STOP!
Can't wait to go back before Christmas!
