    A goofy commercial, dirty street sign or something goofy like that. Do you have a picture of it, website etc.

    In the suburb of Berwyn (Beeeerrrrrwyyyynnnn) we have Adolf's Funeral Home and Crematory.

    In Wilmington Il, another suburb, on US 66 we have a drive in called the launching pad with one of those old Paul Bunyons. This one is painted like a space man and is called the Gemini Giant.

    Then we have our Eagle Man commercial. Yeah I know, a male eagle doesn't lay eggs.

    This came out in 1990, gotta love the girls' hair.

    I'm not from Morgan Hill (was born about 40 miles north), but my mom lives there and that's the only place you can find Poppy Jasper stones, the stupidest-named stones ever.

    Other than that, San Jose is known for... wiggers, spics, and Smash Mouth. I wish I was from New York.
