No, no, no!

General Coffins was the owner of the store! He was a highly decorated officer in the First World War, leading the raid over Macho Grande.

"How do I get to the Susquehanna Hat Company?"

Joke

Doh!

Coffins on the right

Just a joke

Coffins on the right?

Has this picture been cropped? I can't see the planter or coffins.

Wasn't there an ad campaign

Wasn't there an ad campaign at some point that said "Coke Adds Life", or was that just in a novel?

General Store

They weren't kidding when they said general, coffins on the right next to the planters.
