The Kitschy West

“Kitsch:  So tacky or lame that it has a certain ironic appeal.”           

The Urban Dictionary


While most of our experiences in Utah were focused on how magnificent nature can truly be, there were some things that simply made us smile.  I’ve included some of my favorites with this post.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy them as much as we did 🙂

TOO POOPED TO PUMP
TOO POOPED TO PUMP

I swear, that’s what the sign says!  Ya gotta love it.

HOME OF THE HOMEMADE PIES
HOME OF THE HOMEMADE PIES

After all, who can resist a homemade pie served by the likes of this lady!

WHITE-FACED PRISONERS
WRONG SIDE OF THE FENCE

And while they weren’t man-made, these guys just SO looked like they wanted to experience life on the other side of the fence, I couldn’t resist including them.  And finally, my very favorite:

SNEAKER TREE
THE SHOE TREE

I’ve heard of a shoe tree, but never seen one quite like this. What do you suppose they were thinking??

Here’s to those happy souls who share their humor with the weary travelers who pass by.
