  1. *every time Fanny’s appears on literally any sub*

    North Bayites: “omg Fanny’s! My babysitter used to work here/I got my first handy here/lol Bible Store”

  2. Holy shit – Fanny’s!

    Growing up in Kapuskasing, this place was a sort of institution on the way to Toronto. Like a super-greasy Danny’s Justa Pasta.

  3. Heard a kid on the bus a few years ago “mom when I was smaller I thought the sign had two beavers, but now I know what it is, I think it’s owls.”

    So close to saying “Hey Kid, they’re bums.”

  4. Very recently, Willie Nelson was on Conan O’Briens podcast and he said that Johnny Cash used to randomly call him and ask Willie to tell him a dirty joke. Willie used this EXACT gag as an example of what made Johnny Cash laugh (except the establishment was a whorehouse in his joke).

  5. They told him don’t you ever come around here

    Don’t want to see your face, you better disappear

    The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear

    So beat it, just beat it.

  6. I *just* heard this joke on a MinnMax episode a few days ago but I can’t for the life of me find it. Something about it being some old politician or actor’s favorite joke? Like, Sinatra or something. This is going to drive me crazy.

  7. Heh – used to drive by that place every time I went through North Bay. There used to be a bible store in the same building – it was one stop shopping for sin and redemption.
