The most inadvertently lewd town on earth

My in-laws have a house in Florida near a town called Inverness. What does Inverness have to offer? Well, next month, they're having another Cooter Festival, as previously mocked on The Daily Show. This local blogger loathes it. On the way out of town, you pass Cooter Pond., which...I don't know how that would be a good double entendre. Cooter wand, sure. Pond? I got nothin'.

Then there's the furniture store:



And during last week's visit to Florida, a new strip-mall eatery announced itself with bold signage:



Alas, the kafe was not yet open, so I don't know what's on the menu. Fish? Tacos? What else should they serve?

They should serve clams, of course.

Ok, you may need your mother in law's help for this one: there's a chinese bbq restaurant in Seattle called "kaukau."

My mama likes to make jokes about "kaukau." It's good, she says, but don't eat the soup!

Also, they don't use MSG there... because IT'S ALREADY SALTY.

At this point, my sister and I scream and hold our ears in pain.

tuna

Man, and I thought the In 'n' Out Burger seemed suggestive.

For the Kuntry Kafe, I suggest figs, pigs in blankets, lots of pita sandwhiches... And a slogan along the lines of "Eat out more often!"

My local fav around here is Bunghole Liquors.

There was a restaurant around here named Slugs at the Pines until one day some teenagers thought it would be a good idea to switch the "e" with the "i".

As in "Lorena Bobbitt took some Slugs at the Penis"?

Whatever they serve, you can count on it tasting like chicken.

Welcome to the deep south. And man...Inverness...yeah, that's BFE. Did you fly in to Tampa or Orlando?

I grew up in a town with a Badcock furniture store. When you see it every day, the humor gets old.

As far as the "kafe"...well, I'd hope it's all fresh fish, not red velvet cake, or big fat yeast rolls. Eww. Now I've grossed myself out.

Kuntry? Oh lordy.....

Hilarious!!!

e's slogan up there is doubly hilarious. HHHAHAHA

Lisa said...

I'm intrigued by the types of furnishings one might find at the Naughty Penis store...heh....

I wonder if it was so bad that it got banished from the Kuntry Kafe....

In this part of the world, we have the Pump'n'Munch gas station/quickie mart. It gets me every time, because I am 12.

All other double-entendres aside, I'd like to vent a little (and to pass up an opportunity to take a swipe at the Kuntry Kafe indicates its importance).

The C -> K change (representing all hard C's / "voiceless velar stops" in jargon) in orthography is horrid and awful and no one should ever do it. I have absolutely no evidence to back this up, other than to say if it's alliteration you're after, it works with sounds, not with letters. Kuntry Kafe doesn't even have that excuse going for it, so I don't know what to do other than shake my head... And snicker while thinking about fish tacos and tuna salad.

...can't breathe...laughing...too hard...

I'm in absolute agreement with the previously mentioned: clams, tuna, etc. How about some OctoPus? What could be better than an eight-armed puss served on a silver platter? It might make me want to "eat out more often." (That was brilliant, e.)

PS: Thanks for your insightful and hilarious comment over at my place. I love you!

Oh that place is something else, all right.
