America's Weirdest Businesses

While most seem relatively harmless, one seems rather creepy. The first business listed as the Weirdest Business is called Afterlife Telegrams of New Athens, Illinois. This is a service for contacting the dead. Terminally ill patients memorize messages and deliver them when opportunity permits. Talk about ridiculous. I suppose I'm just mad that I didn't think of it first and had the stones to actually con people this way. Oh well, at least I won't have to feel that gut wrenching guilt every time I walk into the room of a terminally ill patient and try to keep a straight face as I give them a "message to carry to the other side". Unreal.

There are 30 odd business listed on the Weird List. Some don't seem all that odd, or interesting to me at all, but I guess they needed to fill some space, or something. While nobody has any sort of crazy drive-thru blackhead treatments on the list, there is a dump listed that is a drive-thru strip joint. That drive home could get a little mess...ehem...
