Picking a name for your restaurant can be tough sometimes. Most people go with something like the founder of the store – like McDonald’s – or the founder’s daughter – which is how we got Wendy’s. Then there are your characters, like Popeye’s, Burger King, or Dairy Queen.
And then there are some places that take a different route entirely, such as this restaurant, which is called “Lick-A-Chick.” We shouldn’t really be surprised to find out that this chain isn’t exactly national, since it probably attracted the wrong kind of clientele. Maybe the chicken is really great, who are we to judge? But the name just isn’t appetizing.
Keep It Down
It looks like this establishment is tired of the police showing up every time someone tries their frozen treats. If you want a cup or cone, please try to fill your mouth with ice cream before you start screaming. It tastes so good, this sign tries to tell us, that once you eat some, the only thought on your mind will be the next bite, and not screaming.
A hot, fresh burger followed by some ice cream is a meal that will hit the spot no matter what you're looking for. People come here grumpy, but they leave happy – as long as there are no cops involved.
Get Them While They're Young
When parents are driving kids around, they have to be in control of the vehicle at all times. If the kids had the wheel, they'd be pulling through every drive-through they could, especially those that dish out delicious treats like a Dairy Queen.
The sign attached to this advertisement not only has the phone number for the store but also a tip for the kids – scream! Scream for ice cream! Scream until the parent or parents in the car have no choice but to stop and get everybody a blizzard. But here's the secret: The parents want a reason to stop too. It's a win-win-win!
Now That's an Advertisement
At Sherrill's, you can get everything you need, and we mean everything. Not only can you fill up your stomach, but you can fill up in other ways, too. Of course, whether or not you bring your car with you, you're going to get plenty of gas when you shop in Tipton, Indiana.
What else could Sherrill's offer? Toys and games? Those are gas. What about something to fill up your party balloons? Helium is a gas. No doubt this is the kind of sign that the kids in the town of Tipton love to point out and laugh at.
Could Have Fooled Us!
There's nothing like a little bit of broken English to make a restaurant sign memorable and funny. It's hard to tell where this sushi restaurant has been set up, but it looks like it's both in a country that speaks English and has been set up by someone who might have needed a little bit more help coming up with the right title.
But these little hole-in-the-wall places always have something great to offer. Japanese sushi and rolls are a treat for everyone, especially if you want something a little exotic, or you need to enjoy food from your home country.
