Maggot Brain Speaking of horrible things in LA is the sign for The Toy Palace(?) still around? From what I remember it is was a garage door that had the words "Toy Palace" crudely spray painted on one side and was lofted on top of a cherry picker next to the high way.
infinite zest I realized that Chinese Restaurants would be in on wordplay after I lived down the street from Kung Food, and the fact that a petition was created to re-erect a downtown sign for a Hung Far Low even though it moved out of that area years prior. I wonder if it's picked up with the Vietnamese places yet or if they're still oblivious: My girlfriend lives across the street from a 'Pho Kim' and somewhere else there's a 'Pho Q,' 'Pho King' and many others. You know because 'Pho' rhymes with 'fuck' without the K.. and they answer the restaurant just like that- "hello welcome to fuck you." But I'm not sure if it's encroached on the general restaurant owner or if it's just a thing hipsters find funny.
