Zippy Code 20902
Glenmont, Maryland



Back on August 25th I posted an entry involving the Zippy the Pinhead cartoon strip which featured a local landmark: Vet's Liquors and it's sign. Even earlier than that, I had been out taking photographs of local weirdness, and while I was researching the earlier Zippy entry, I found out that Zippy had been to see the god before me.



This display is located at a gas station at the intersection of Randolph Road and Georgia Avenue in Maryland. At the entrance to the station is this large, painted concrete head formed to resemble a stone head on Easter Island. I tend to think of it as the "Tiki" head, and it's a odd sight to behold.

Easter Traffic Island.....

Sometimes you have to wonder if you are going to drive by and see livestock being sacrificed next to flaming torches. With the way gasoline prices are going, this may not be far off the mark in the future.



That will be one goat to top your tank, and three goats for high octane....

Weird! You crazy Marylanders... In the first photo, it looked like he had his arms around the yellow pole and was kissing it!

Looks like the statue might have a bit of a coke problem.

A note to miss penny lane

As a self-appointed "crazy Marylander", I saw neither the illusion of outstretched arms nor kissing. (although it was fun looking for it, at your suggestion)

Remember, Maryland is for crabs, Virginia is for lovers, and DC is for lovers with crabs. ::rimshot::
