Downtown Anchorage, a fall day, lovely…I see this license plate and cracked up. It was parked in front of the used clothing store formerly known as “Out of the Closet.” Sarah Palin had named it her favorite store during the campaign as part of her “oh, lookie, I’m folksy!” tour. The store had to change their name. In case you missed that story, here’s the skinny: While on the campaign trail, Palin name-dropped Out of the Closet as one of her favorite shops. The spotlight sparked the attention of a Lower 48 thrift store of the same name…oooops… and long story short, the Anchorage Out of the Closet received a cease and desist order to stop using the name. Yes, Really!
I’m sure the owner of this vehicle didn’t intend the joke, but I’m never one to turn down humor. The new name of the clothing store is “Second Run”. Good Lord, let’s hope this is a sign…”I Quit” @ Second Run.
