I’m driving on the outskirts of Bisbee, Arizona late in the afternoon looking for images when these two signs catch my eye. The subject matter surprised me so much that I rolled right by it. When I turned around and examined the signs and the two businesses next to each other, it took a while for it to register. Then, I had to pull over because I couldn’t stop laughing. I wonder how many people have driven by these signs, did a double take, and drove down the road wondering what a self storage mortuary is?
The truth is only slightly less interesting. The mortuary and self storage business are side by side and share a driveway. Still, it makes you pause to see the mortuary with motorhomes, campers, and boats parked next to it. Perhaps the mortuary should put up a sign that says, “You can’t take it with you, but you can park it nearby.”
