Doing the World a Dis-service

I was thinking to myself the other day, "I live in the middle of so much culture that the rest of the world doesn't get to experience". I made a promise to myself that I would share some of these treasures with you.

I immediately knew what I was going to share first. This is a small beauty/barber shop in Anniston, AL. It is off the beaten path and some of you may have never seen it. Today I got the pictures for you. This was no easy feat. One side of the sign was fairly easy to get a photo of, but the other side, that was a different story. I had to pull into the cemetery across the street and walk as far as I could so that you could see the sign past the trees and the car parked in front of it. It was worth every minute of it.

My question is this. What about this sign would make anyone have faith that the people inside were capable of making me look beautiful? My husband refers to this as the "Alien Beauty Shop". Let me show you what I am talking about.

I know that you are thinking to yourselves, "Amanda, really, I think that you are over-reacting just a little bit". Looking past all the hair terms that I do not understand such as "Kinky Twist" and "Tree Braid" (who would want their hair to look like a tree?), these women are not bad. If I was driving up on this side of the sign I might (MIGHT) pull in if I needed one of these "services".

Please if you will follow me as we take a look at the other side of this very artistic business sign.

People, I am not over reacting. What is that on the right side of the sign. It appears to be an non gender specific alien with worms for hair and a poorly shaped beard!!! I had no idea that there was a market for alien barbers.

And lets don't for get the woman on the left side of the sign. Funny, it kind of looks like Joan Rivers. I guess if they make it look like they style the celebrities it might increase their business.

Now I feel better that I have shared that with the rest of the world. Share this with the ones you love.
