Last night on the way home from dinner, we had to stop for gas, and the station into which we pulled was across the street from the "He Ain't Here" Lounge.

In case you can't quite make it out, the logo features three cartoon white dudes hiding behind the letters, pointing in various directions. You know, to misdirect any nagging harpies wives who might be looking for them. LULZ.

I got very excited thinking we had stumbled into a wormhole that took us backwards in time, and nearly walked over fully expecting to see "Dewey Beats Truman" in the newspaper stand out front. But then I noticed the gas was still $4. Bummer.
