I guess the valedictorians aren't working at the gas station

Seen this today at a local Kum & Go.... couldn't resist snapping a picture with my phone. I was a little confused why the nozzle was made of 91% Ocatine! I'm not even sure what that is!

OMG I thought that was an off color joke about Quick Stop or something, Kum and go, OH MY GOD that is a real company name!

Kum & Go :: 24-Hour Convenience Store OH MY GOD I can't believe this! We are loosing it, the degradation of society is well underway, a steaming ship that can't be stopped.

Ha ha.... I guess they are so common around here, that I didn't even consider that the name would be funnier than the sign on the pump!

At least whoever got "Nozzle" right!
A really complete sign might have referred to a 91 Ocatine Nozil!

the public system is more geared towards dumbing education down while the kids who are smarter than that aren't being challenged enough. Out here Jerry Brown's focus is on low income schools and schools with a lot of "non english speaking" students.

If they eat enough of the grocerys inside and solicit on the sidewalk out front, it could be true...

Lots of funny localized names around the country.

Yep.... they screwed up on 2 counts.... misspelled Octane and added a %. I might have just chuckled about it and went on my merry way if it was one or the other, but combine them and we have a Jay Leno moment!

Maybe the other 9% of that nozzle is Ovaltine?

Make you wonder what comes out of that nozzle?

Just for clarification, the Kum & Go's start just about where the Wawa's end. Sheetz are kind of in between. If you get to Montana you can always find the Town Pump on lots of corners. Unfortunately UGO's are gone.
