Ryan Gravette remembers the day the sign came to town.
"We actually had some friends over," Gravette said. "They went out and said: ‘Do you realize that there's a sign that says crap out there?'"
Gravette said: No. No, I didn't. But, yes, there is a "CRAP" sign lighting up our sky.
That sign belongs to Andy Joseph.
"My crap sign on the roof," Joseph said. "It stands for: 'Can't Resist Andy's Place.'"
No, he's not using the neon to attract the ladies. Andy's Place is a second-hand appliance store. For Joseph, "CRAP" is a business decision.
The slogan came about when Joseph got a deal on an old sign from a defunct floor covering store. The sign spelled CARPET, which gave Joseph some letters he could use for a different business. http://www.kivitv.com/Global/story.asp?S=13900042 (with video) -Thanks, Funny Laughs!
