Subject: [hr100] Top 14 (on the Nolan's Index) Businesses for Silverton
Who remembers those "sponsors" from Lake Wobegon's
"A Prairie Home Companion"?
Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery
Bertha's Kitty Boutique
Or, how about that old Bob Newhart classic: "The Grace L.
Ferguson Airline & Stormdoor Company"?
To which I'd now like to add the following prospects for
the soon-to-be economic re-boom of Silverton, whose
"business plans" I've almost been rehired to rewrite:
Bob's Street Paving and Front Porch Remodeling Construction
Stan's Newsstand & Website Printout Emporium
Alice's All-Night Restaurant
("Rocky Mountain Oysters Served Round the Clock")
Mary's Antique Computers & Mining Swap-O-Rama
("We've Got Your 486 Right Here Next to the Pickaxes")
Tony's Mass Transit, Subway & Skateboard Rentals
Buffalo Boy Airlines & Pack Mules
Ollie's Oxygen ("Tanks for the Mammaries")
Cissy's Nuclear Reactor & Lightning Bug Power Company
("We Gotcher Knifes Forks & Spones Raht Chere")
Ralph's Pretty Good Tattoos & Taxicabs
("Check out Ernie's when you need to change either one")
Matt's Shoe-Less Paystore
Mad Max Mitsubitchi, Ferrari & Wheelbarrow Sales & Service
("0 Wheels 2 Weird 4 Mad Max")
KLIP-FM ("The Big Beet of Radio Silverton")
...and finally, of course, that fine fictional firm of:
Cappis, Thorn & Associates, Architects
("Even if You can't imagine such a design,
We can still cough up with it")
("back from vacationing/sandblasting/sunburning
with his own prairie home companion and realizing just how
fried his mind is from all these lists" :-)

Hey, with all this publicity, Silverton could become a
virtual hotbed of economic growth. Already, there are plans
underway to open up some new businesses in town. What with
the seasonal nature of income generating activies there, I'm
glad to see they are combining similar businesses to save on
Here they are:
Ernie's Budget Sandblasting (and Tattoo Removal)
Radiation Test Lab (and Suntan Parlour)
Ed's Vacuum Cleaner Sales (and Lyposuction Clinic)
