A sign from the Lone Star State

This sign comes to “Travel with a Beveridge” from Wise George, a blogger whose brother apparently knows all the best bars in Austin, Texas.

With our small budget, we’d definitely come back to Dirty Martin’s Kum-Bak Place on the strip near the University of Texas at Austin for a double meat burger with cheese costing 60 cents. And, no doubt, there is a line this very minute out its door because of ridiculous inflation rates that will soon have most of us eating kidney beans out of a can.

George the wise one tells us that business has been going strong at the Kum-Bak since 1926, and getting better since management got in the habit of mopping the floor.

(Hey, e-mail us a photo of your favorite "signz" with a description of them and we'll consider posting them ...)
