I know one. Baph, Cheesy, Bee and I had the pleasure of attending the ribbon cutting for our friend Russ’s shop today. I’ve never gotten to see the giant scissors up close before: they look like big plastic safety scissors, the blunt tipped kind you use in kindergarten. But they do the job.
On the way to the ribbon cutting I saw a bumper sticker on a car ahead of me in traffic. The bumper sticker said “love people. cook them tasty food.” Very nice suggestion. Somehow, though, when I looked at the bumper sticker I inserted an extra period and saw this: “love people. cook them. tasty food.” Now that would be an awesome bumper sticker. I love it when my brain malfunctions and provides me with free entertainment like that.
Russ is a good natured father of four who is an irrepressible “car guy”. If you live in the Collinsville area and need a mechanic, you should call Vern’s Professional Car Car. But ask for Russ, not Vern. There is a Vern, but she’s not a mechanic. And her name isn’t Vern.
