Sonic the Groundhog

Happy Groundhog Day! Evidently, the famous Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, so there'll be six more weeks of winter, at least if you're the kind who relies on large rodents for your meterological forecasting needs.

It's also a new month, which means that the famous Sonic sign has been changed. I went three-tenths of a mile out of my way today to check it out (if you're new to this blog, the previous entries to the Sonic sign saga are linked in last month's post on the subject).

At any rate, they're getting a little better at the English thing over there. One side of the sign successfully asks us to ENJOY A SWEETHEART SHAKE. The other side is at least a little interesting:


This message is open to interpretation; it would be a lot clearer with a bit of punctuation, like the HUNGRY CONEY & TOTS offering of a few months back. If you're using "Tuesday night half-price burgers" to mean a singular promotion concept, then you could indeed say that said concept IS back. If you're talking about the burgers themselves, then you would have to say that, on Tuesday nights, they ARE back. But hey, they really are improving at this...

My lungs hurt from blowing out these candles every day: Happy Birthday to Kevin D. in Austin. Maybe I can catch you on the way to TMEA this year.
