Roadside Americana: The Scary Pie Lady of Frackville PA.

I may have to start rethinking my penchant for visiting roadside statues.

Exhibit A:

Just check out the cold, dead eyes on these two.

And that poor kid… I’m not sure what’s more tragic; the headless doll, her haircut or the fact that she looks like she’s listening to the ocean in her mom’s pelvis like a giant seashell.

What do you think the pie is stuffed with? The souls of kittens? The hopes and dreams of children? The doll’s head?

By the looks of things in the (tres manly) shoe department, zombie pie lady must pull away from her bolts nightly, leaving her lofty perch behind to terrorize unsuspecting townspeople.

I hope they didn’t haunt my topbox.

Pie lady – so scary, so wrong, SO RIGHT!

    OMG – listening to the ocean in her mom’s pelvis!! Funniest shit I’ve seen in awhile. Thanks for the big laugh. (BTW I’ll probably have nightmares from the cold dead eyes!)

    Scariest roadside attraction I have ever seen. Who would design something so lifeless?

    Nice writeup! Some friends and I passed through Frackville last spring to check out the pie lady and it’s as freaky in person as in the photos. We also visited the “monument to mothers” in Ashland and Bill’s Old Bike Barn in Bloomsburg (well worth the ride up)
