Yer Saturday Chuckle, Part 2: “Thank you for picking Uranus!”

| July 21, 2018 | 21 Comments

Several months ago, I wrote a short article about a rather, er, “unique” place I passed while traveling: the Uranus Fudge Factory in Uranus, MO. My schedule didn’t permit me to stop then; but on a subsequent trip, I had a schedule that allowed a stop.

Yeah, it was worth stopping. The place was a hoot – a bit juvenile, but a hoot nonetheless.

The title of this article is what you hear from the sales staff on entering the place – spoken loudly and proudly. (smile) You’re also greeted by this . . . guy(?) holding a sign to the same effect:
 


 
But if you’re observant, besides the place’s name you get another clue about the place before you even enter. There’s a sign that tips you off posted outside the building. You can see it from the parking lot as you approach the building to enter (be sure to read the fine print):
 

 
Here’s a close-up of the sign:
 

 
The place was a bit crowded inside. But it seems they have plans for expansion:
 

 
If you have to make a latrine call (I’d been on the road for a few hours by then, so yeah – I did), depending on your gender you might see this sign:
 

 
One disappointment: I got there in time for lunch, and was planning on trying the wings at the saloon and party bar next door. Unfortunately, that business doesn’t open until 4PM. Should you decide to go and also plan to eat, you might want to take that into account. You won’t be able get anything to eat there except snack-type stuff before 4PM, and there’s not much else in the immediate vicinity.

No, I didn’t get anyone We KnOw AnD “lOvE” a union T-shirt during the stop. Their T-shirts were kinda pricey; ol’ purple-tiger-striped Blunder Chicken simply isn’t worth what I’d have had to spend.

And no – I didn’t try the fudge, either. (smile)

        The PuRpLe PaRaChUtE queef? I’d all but forgotten about that sniveling cockroach!

        A Cardiologist was being laid to rest one day and one of the flower arrangements was a perfect representation of a human heart. A Gynecologist said “The flowers at my funeral ought to be interesting!” and the Proctologist immediately fainted.

    Sounds like fun but potentially messy and I don’t like to shower that much.

  3. Dave Hardin says:

    Did you pack any fudge on the way? Did you see anyone else packing fudge while you were there?

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    As I understand it, the fudge from Uranus is rather good. ‘Course, I’m not a connoisseur of that specialty.

  5. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    Ah ha, busted HONDO … I am putting in a FOIA request and obtaining all security video, sales receipts and other documents from your anus … I will figure out exactly who you really are!

    BTW: Great post!

    MCPO OUT!

    And my wife wonders why I have such a warped sense of humor.

    Next up: Alien Jerky, Baker, CA.

    I hear there is a road sign that reads, “Now Entering Uranus. (As if one has to be told.)

    I checked the White Pages. There are five Dicks in Uranus.

    All of the Uranus High School sports teams stink.

    The only children in that town were conceived elsewhere. Sex in Uranus does not make babies.

    My son & I visited there 3 weeks ago. Fudge was awesome. His face as the butthole of a giraffe, priceless haha

  9. Hack Stone says:

    This place is rather well known. Hack Stone was on a sales trip with the Vice President of the proud but humble woman owned business that he works, and one evening he said “I would like to get up in Uranus.” That’s the last time that Hack will share a motel room on a business trip.
