Sights from the Road: A quick pit stop at Roadside America
Be Prepared to see more than you expect – You’ll be amazed, is what the sign says outside of Roadside America in Shartlesville, Pennsylvania.
Actually, I didn’t even have to venture inside to be amazed. I was amazed that 90 percent of the would-be customers who wheel in to the parking lot off of I-78 don’t immediately peel right out with a rubber-burning screech, doused in the salt of frightened children’s tears when they get a good close-up of the two hideous fiberglass Amish folks that lurk outside.
Oofa, check out the manhands on that broad, eh? I don’t know about you, but when I think of the Amish, menacing is hardly the first character trait that comes to mind. I guess the artist should really be commended for his talent in transforming good old Amos and Mary into two fiendish ghouls hell-bent on a post adolescent, latex fetish fueled rumspringa. Well done.
