electric cock

One of my favorite finds from my trip to Austin, Texas was the amount of taco trucks I came across. I couldn’t believe how many there were. In addition to being on almost every street corner, there were also parking lots full of them. Not only were they camped out, they had tricked out signs letting people know what they sold. I saw signs on top of trucks advertising everything from cupcakes to shoes. Without a doubt, my favorite find was Ms P’s Electric Cock:

I told him that I’m vegetarian but I loved his signs. He smiled and said the least he could do was turn the lights on for me:3I almost hugged him (almost). This is a close up of their menu:4Their badass call-in sign:5There are some kerning issues with that sign but I just love it. This is letting people know they are open for breakfast too:6…and of course the beautiful neon:

It’s the weekend! Back at it on Monday!
