Sierra Vista, Arizona is a small town which battens upon the presence of an Army base nearby, Fort Huachuca. The main drag of the town is Fry Boulevard, a miles-long commercial strip which ends at the gate to the base.
I happened to be walking along East Fry last week and saw a sign which amused me:
“Chicken” paired with “Shrimp” on one side of the sign — that makes sense. But “Steak” paired with “Fingers”? I’ve heard of “chicken fingers”, a food name which sounds anatomically weird and therefore unappealing to me, but just “Fingers”?
Naturally I couldn’t help but visualize a platter of browned human fingers, glistening with some sort of sauce and garnished with sprigs of parsley.
