Every Diner

Has this poster framed on the wall, I've noticed.
You know, the one that has James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and other classic dead megastars hanging out at a bar around a pool table. And it says
Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Sadly there is a Green Day song by the same name- try very hard to not sing it to yourself in your head.
Pretty much impossible.
Just make yourself move on though and think to yourself
How odd it is for this picture to be hanging in every sketch diner across America.
And now that you think about this
Next time you go into a Greasy Spoon
And you see this picture
You'll know that I am right. And you will probably blog about it.
