Big TYPO

I’m puzzling over this sign.  Is it truly the Kum store or is it a big typo and it’s the GUM store.  Because I don’t know if I want a case of Kum or a few ounces and I’m not even going to speculate exactly what it is.  You know?

    Well, the spelling could have been a lot worse of course…

    I wonder if someone’s name is Kum, or if Kum is some kind of special product, or if the store owner was just so stupid he thought he was spelling Come right. It’s so wrong on all fronts. Imagine the stupid goodies inside.

    Kum & Go serves more than 400,000 customers per day, and has more than $2 billion in annual sales every year. The founders were named Krause and Gentle, and those sick bastards used the first initials of their last names for the Kum & Go Moniker.

    I see them all over the west (not Krause and Gentle, but the stores,) and several times thought I should shoot a pic of the sign for the AWMOK, but raced on by.

    I just ordered a T-shirt from their web site for $9.99.

    Love the Post Prudence!

    Not a bad place to stop, I’ve never seen one that wasn’t clean, and the people very friendly that worked there.

    100% agree on the name Gentle.

    Even “K&G” would be a little easier to swallow.
