Life An Open Letter to City Market
posted by October 8 at 15:54 PMon
Dear City Market,
It’s probably just because I’m in love with the Larry Craig scandal, but running into this sign outside your store last night made my weekend.
Of course, you’ve been making these signs for a while. The drunk Mel Gibson last year? Hilarious. But you’ve really been outdoing yourself lately, City Market. You have four of these hand-drawn signs up right now, and they’re all so good I couldn’t decide which one I most wanted to steal and hang in my apartment.
On reflection, the Owen Wilson one’s clearly the best. It took all I had in me not to rip it off the sign and run. Who draws these, City Market? And what happens to these when they’ve, you know, expired? Do you have some secret door behind the soda case leading to a huge gallery of all the past signs you’ve made? You should! Hell, if you have no room, howzabout you take up some wall space here at The Stranger’s offices? Owen, OJ, Phil, and Larry would be in good company. We already have huge drawings (by Kathryn Rathke) of Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Ayn Rand, Samuel Beckett, and Brian Wilson.
