    Farrell's Ice Cream actually had a plate called The Pig's Trough.

    The biggest thing you could order there was called the zoo. They put like 10 different kinds of ice cream, a bunch of bananas, wipped cream, and nuts into silver punch bowl. They had this stretcher that the bowl would fit in the middle. Two guys would come out carrying it like it was a body while another person hit a big drum announcing to everyone who was ordering the zoo.

    I won a contest in the 5th grade, with 4 other kids, on naming all of the capitals to the US. Our teacher took us to the Rosemead location.

    This original location is now a chinese restaurant. I miss that place.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    You're either part of the problem, or part of the solution.

    Farrells was the shit...I think they just closed down the very last location here in San Diego last year. Had a big auction selling off everything from the store...all the pig troughs...the photos from the walls...the booths. Made me kinda sad. I remember going there as a kid...

    If you are an old person, you will never appear in a Girls Gone Wild video or anything else made by Joe Francis.

    The Social Security Administration sent me a letter yesterday listing various benefits, such as widow/widower support and retirement planning. Awesome.

    Oh. my. god. I LOVED that Whataburger with the crazy high slide. I didn't give a goddamn about their food, but MY GOD, that slide!

    It's kind of weird that my family took us there on occasion because my brother broke his head open falling off the McDonald's slide (at 23rd ave and Bethany) when he was 2. This was before they put the squishy playgrounds in.

    I got one of those last week as well. I guess the SSA can check "inform old people of their benefits" off their to-do list now.

    The company as a whole was aesthetically bankrupt from the beginning.
