Someone recently gave the Special Collections Department at the Emily Fowler Library two menus from Burch’s Ju-Cy Pig Restaurant dated1966. The menus sport two different covers, but their insides are the same. Victor Cornelius, Inc., a company out of Eastland, Texas printed them.
Anyway, a couple of the staff perused the menus and wondered just what the difference was between a Chocolate Milk “400″ and “800″ were. One of us thought it referred to size, but the others were hoping that it referred to more of a “kick.” I sure hope so.
Then I mused: what if we got an old telephone and plugged it in and dialed the number? Would we get the Ju-Cy Pig? And if we ordered a milk shake over the phone and asked if they could deliver, would somebody show up? And if they did, would it only work if we had pre-1966 money?
Can you tell I’ve recently read Stephen King’s, 11/22/63?
