Snakes based drinks don't go all the way down?

Thats the president of US ladies and Gents.

I've never had real frozen custard. Apparently the thing that distinguishes it from ice cream or frozen yogurt is that frozen custard has egg in it. It must be nice.

I love this!

It reminds me of when my wife visited New Harmony, Indiana went to a diner and saw the sign that said "No brains today."

Regarding the second photo, I didn't think it was possible when we moved to Missouri, but we do have frozen custard here. Its a miracle.

""Snakes ?" That is "shakes" but you knew that.

The captcha wound up in the comment.

Scott, Frozen custard is beyond wonderful.

Two stories, Our Kyrgyzstan daughter thought the best thing about Milwaukee was Leon's custard on south 27th St. And that's coming from a kid who thought EVERYTHING about Milwaukee was was wonderful.

Second, BOTH our Italian children thought frozen custard blew away gelato.

Great, now I have to go to Sheridan's for a custard fix.

Was the little pitbull located?

I think that's "Shakes". I know, The Blonde doesn't like to be told to put on her reading glasses, either.

And you didn't tell us?

I'm not packed or anything.

WV "retights" Not sure, but I'm betting it's for those women who are into shakes and shake-based drinks.

It would be nice if you could get shakes on a plane.

In the second picture, I love how the tree branches blend with the first three letters of the sign, giving the impression that they're serving "ZEN CUSTARD".

Yearly pilgrimage to Lay-Flat, eh?

What about:
malted milk ?

And what's with the "Algerian Warning" sign? Haters gotta hate I guess.

That my friends, is the Frozen Custard stand in Lafayette, Indiana. Also posted there is this slogan: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be- We do not mix flavors!

Of Frozen Custard, that is. Frozen Custard has more egg and more milk fat, and it is delicious beyond description. I love the strawberry, but the purist always goes for vanilla. I hope Meadehouse had some.

Best wishes from mid-north central Indiana.

There should be, of course, a comma after the word "That", above.

Reasonable.
