Creepy Trains and Creepy Kitties

These two ads hang in the men’s restroom of one of my favorite pizza places, George’s Pizza in Lenexa, KS. The man in the first one seems to have an unhealthy interest in the boy’s excitement. I get a “purity vs corruption” vibe from it. The look on the kittens’ faces make me wonder what might be tied to the track just outside of what we can see. Some poor mouse, struggling to escape before being crushed by the toy train.

The owner of the restaurant really likes toy trains, there is a track suspended above the dining area with a train circling all the time. But I really do wonder why anyone would want to hang these two pieces anywhere, let alone a restroom.

    Definitely weird. I’ve never had George’s Pizza though… I think we should fix that….

    George’s is delicious, one of my favorite pizza places ever.
