Park Avenue Motel

Ok, so yesterday I'm driving through the bustling metropolis of Herrin IL (pop. 11,000) in southern Ilinois...Then I see this sign, and just had to laugh... Esp the Zsa-Zsa Gabor-esque silhouette.

 

Herrin actually has a very interesting history. Several presidents made visits, Frank Sinatra performed there in the 1940s, and it's the hometown of David Lee Murphy, the country music star.
