Friday Funny: America the Beautiful...Parking Lot
"A new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center found that, when asked to provide their immediate reaction to the sound of the word 'America,' 98 percent of respondents replied by describing the sight of a near-empty parking lot of a decrepit suburban strip mall on a late February afternoon," writes The Onion.
“We've found that in nearly all instances the image that comes to peoples' minds within milliseconds of the word ‘America’ being said is a small strip mall in northern Virginia, southern Missouri, or possibly somewhere outside of Indianapolis, featuring a checks cashed place, a cell-phone store, and an L.A. Tan with three customers inside,” said lead researcher Graham Tierney . . ."
