“Now that the local Payless has closed its doors, dark days lie ahead for the residents of Lawrence, Kansas. But in case you weren’t quite sure how dark, the store’s failed owner has taken it upon himself to explain exactly what’s become of the “COMMIE & CANDY ASS CAPITOL OF KANSAS.” Through the art of truck poster.
Chad Lawhorn of the Lawrence Journal-World was the first to stumble upon the very well thought-out and coherent signage, when he ran into the rabble-rouser himself. From LJ World:
I asked the fellow if he was associated with the store. He said he wasn’t, and then pulled a set of keys out of his pocket and opened the door to the locked store. I told him I thought that might be a sign he was associated with the store. I asked him about his signs, and he said he thought they spoke for themselves.
A man from a nearby business who saw our conversation said that was Bob, the owner of the place. Indeed, the going out of business permit from the city lists a Robert Fyfe as the owner of the store.
Why Bob was being so coy remains unclear. What’s not to be proud of.” *
