You Can't Beat the Mad Butcher's Meat

I kid you not, that was this grocery chain's advertising slogan. The Mad Butcher is an increasingly rare sight these days in Arkansas. When I was growing up, they would run their commercials on local TV stations. The only ones that I know for certain are still open are in Stuttgart and Earle. This is the Earle location. I've gone ahead and mapped it to hopefully help people avoid this town.


By the way, Earle is a steaming pile of crap. That's because it's a dying small town on Hwy. 64 that unfortunately is a speed trap. We were pulled over on the way back from Blytheville and given a ticket for "Inattentive Driving". The officer said that he was doing me a favor because this was a city citation which would not be reported to my insurance company. Called their City Hall today. They say the fine is $100.
