A hell of a town
Bayside’s up and Waukegan is down
The 32 runs right through Mequon
It’s a hell of a town!
DOH! So close, yet so far…. like 960 miles.
I have a twinge of “something ain’t right”
I’ve never been sexually stimulated by a skyline before… and it’s still not happening now.
That lamp isn’t the Space Needle? I thought that I was in Seattle for a second.
Well, all that beige may have thrown you.
We call it “latte”.
Just don’t call me “latte” for dinner! Heh-heh, there’s no stupid shit like the old stupid shit.
I can’t think of anything witty to say, I’m just laughing too hard
WHO THE HELL WOULD THINK THIS IS ANYTHING OTHER THAN NYC?
I mean, each place has its own skyline and, there are always some cities I don’t recognize right away, but come on! People (in the USA, at least, and after 9/11, most other people around the world with TV access) who’ve lived under a rock for the last 40 years would still know where this one is!
hm, not sure why this posted over here…it was supposed to be a mainline post…
but, well, since I’m here anyway…
Every time…EVERY DAMN TIME I think the post is funny and nothing can top it, I read one of LeeLoo’s comments and just…OW MY SPLEEN!
Actually in a post 9/11 world this one doesn’t fit.
where we you when the Twin Towers fell on that cheese factory?
…I’m going to hell.
yeah, you’re probably going to hell…meet ya by the oyster bar?
And, in a post 9/11 world, everybody who watched it either in person or on TV, or has seen any TV coverage of it at all since then, would recognize the Twin Towers.
This person just plain doesn’t care and is apparently trying to sell this same skyline for EVERY major city for the sake of a buck. A sad, sad person…or a clever, clever troll
Actually, you’re mistaken. No place has it’s own skyline. As far as I can tell from the photos at the shop, all American cities have this same skyline.
you could be on to something there…
Move the lamp six inches to the left, add a wash of winter mildew and you ARE looking at Seattle. From a ladder.
I bet some moss green would add the authentic touch you’re looking for.
Maybe they meant MilwaukIE, as in the town in Oregon. Then the space needle wouldn’t be such a stretch…only 160 miles or so.
This is also seen on the site as “Chicago, Memphis… LA, Tulsa… ” So many cities… so not the same thing.
What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me…
hey! aren’t those the twin tow huh?
Ssssshhh! The terrorist will never think to look for them in Wisconsin.
That’s because there’s nothing here, it’s the perfect plan!
Wisconsin is the unattainable meat core surround by the impenetrable dough that is the Midwestern Pirogi.
OMG i love a good pirogi
mm, pierogi. the real reason anyone lives in milwaukee.
“Your purchase goes directly to Worldwide Education Services, a public charity dedicated to improving lives through education and strengthening family values. Life can be so much more.”
A public charity dedicated to improving lives through education on all subjects except geography.
Their mission statement doesn’t mention helping those who are, in any way, lost.
That’s the wurst piece of Schlitz to come out of Milwaukee since Bud Selig.
I saw sagely what you did there.
Looking at it made me blatz all over myself.
Twinge of Pride? Yea I twinge every time I see my town’s skyline in silhouette with another city’s name attributed to it too.
Milwaukee art without Laverne and Shirley? What a schlamiel.
Lenny and Squiggy are gonna be pissed!
Che’s rhyme and now thoughts of Laverne & Shirley…
I feel so homesick.
Dammit, I need a some cheese curds and a bratwurst.
And Leinenkugel! Don’t forget the Leinies!
Start spreading the cheese
And openin’ beers.
I wanna drink a lot in it
Milwau – waukee!
I wanna wake up in a bar that’s never closed.
To find a puddle of puke, right where I dozed
Zippy, that’s actually quite beautiful.
I guess that big storm really blew shit all over the place!
Even my city doesn’t look like, my city. It looks like a bunch of dildos and a circus tent. I mean, this city is known for being full of conservative d-bags, but dildos? This city doesn’t know what a dildo is! (well, we do have Larry Flynt for that, actually….)
The Seattle one is the same as this one.
I don’t know where I am any more! Someone spiked my coffee.
look at the third picture down.
it’s like a damn hall of mirrors… no way out!
Oh, that was me, LeeLoo. Can we have sexy times now or do I need to spike the next one too?
LOL well said! You’re speaking of course of the southern approach. Seen from the north it just looks like the ass side of a public garage.
WKRP reports that two giant street signs have beat Procter and Gamble’s headquarter buildings in the race for mid-level dominance. The prize for most monstrous goes to the new dildo factory. Larry Flynt was on hand to thank the supporters of Hustler and urges everyone in Cincinnati to loosen up!!
Somebody neglected to remember to never forget.
*brain short-circuits at appearance of many infinitives at once*
So many directions to follow.
Comment Of The Day.
BRING OUT THE SPARKLY GIFS!! Quickly!
“You know, that day that thing happened.”
“Yeah, don’t you remember? We had that crazy huge skyline?”
“Oh, yeah… I guess.”
Seems to be missing a few bowling alleys.
and bars. don’t forget the bars.
I like the “osterich” but the zebra looks lika a jackass!
And surprisingly enough, the “San Francisco” skyline has the Transamerica pyramid and the Golden Gate. Of course, the orientation is one that you couldn’t actually ever see. It has the bridge is on the left, and the pyramid is on the right. If you’re looking from the bay, you could see this image in reverse. If you’re looking from the ocean side, you’d see the bridge on the left, and the back of Coast Range on the left
Why does the same Hippopotamus (or skyline view) print have varying costs?
Silly me, they look the same size on the screen
Thanks for the sick Mequon shotout! Woohoo! Makes me think Crochet might be a seriously up on his Wisconsin knowledge…
To be fair, it gets hard to tell where one city ends and another starts when driving through Milcagoitlevittsdelphitrenyork.
So that is where the Twin Towers ended up. Who knew? I guess they are in the witness protection program now and have been renamed The Milwaukee Double Header or something to cleverly fool everyone. Them evil-doers will never figure it out.
They’re calling themselves the Triplet Towers.
“Lenny”, “Squiggy” and (not shown) “The Big Ragoo”
Shoulda moved to Mpls/St. Paul. So they’d be the Twin Towers in the Twin Cities, hey?
I live an hour north of Milwaukee and go there often. I’m very sorry to say that I have never gone up the World Trade Center, or even seen them, but now I have something to do next weekend!
This just reinforces my belief that people in milwaukee wished they lived elsewhere.
Love the colors. Brimstone yellow: for your Sodom and Gomorrah-type cities.
Just post a picture of a brewery and call it a day.
Milwaukee didn’t look like that when I drove through it once on vacation. Of course, that was before GPS, so maybe I was lost.
We vacationed like animals back then!
What’s funny about this to me is that Mequon isn’t in Milwaukee.
Don’t steal mah dezign!!!11!!1!!
Oh, but if you want to send me someone else’s photo, so I can yoink their design and make a silhouette, that’s fine with me.
Is that a Shoggoth eating the upper city from the right? And how’s the housing market there?
Call me when they have Pocatello, Idaho back in stock.
Skaggsville, Maryland, better be next bitches
Okay, what the FUCK is THIS?
I downloaded “Shop Savy” to my phone, scanned the barcode and it sent me to a website in Indonesian (?) with pictures of small children chained to workbenches making what looks like “West Elm” furniture and a link to Bain Capital. So, hello investment opportunity!
Congratulations, you are a job creator!
You’ve mad skills Rushgirl2112! – enviously, SoplaMe
I don’t think she did anything to the picture. That IS the picture they used!
Nothing says comfy, or hometown pride, like a bar code.
Oops- I must have been cross-eyed (or drunk) or both? when I looked at the items in the shop. Didn’t see that one so OBVIOUSLY Rushgirl must have made it. drunk rookie mistake
no worries. Seeing Giant barcodes as decor tend to make a mind go numb. What the what what?
I call foul. I don’t see a Summerfest tent or see a place to adjust the size of the smell of yeasty beer that covers the place.
I bet that’s Hartford.
Agree. It must be a troll or some Milwaukeean with skyline envy.
And the Harbor Bridge? Where’s the unforgettable, already-falling-apart-opened-in-1979 Harbor Bridge?
I see they used Apple Maps.
Oh! More! Bird bird bird! How unimaginative when it could have repeated a few dozen times as hawk eagle falcon robin kite skylark blabbity blabbity bird bird bird …
Can I get it on a necklace? I would love to wear the city of brotherly love next to my heart.
You’ll want it backwards, right?
Yah, you betcha! (said in the voice of Frances McDormand in Fargo)
The DC one is hilarious. It’s a random bunch of monuments and museums that aren’t aven on the same street, much less right next to each other.
As a real-live Milwaukeean, I am completely embarrassed by this artist’s gaffe and completely amused by everyone’s comments.
(Please know that we may talk funny and dress funny here, but not all of us are this idiotic.)
It’s a common mistake but that’s actually Pewaukee’s skyline (It’s near Waukesha and Nashota). As an Oconomowocan I understand that when the first map of Wisconsin was made, the cartographer got lazy and just started to write random letters instead of real city names.
Um, sorry. But I think that’s actually Tomah. Or Minoqua. Viroqua? Those distinguished cities have lovely skylines.
Viroqua? They also have a lovely yarn store there!
Minoqua! I grew up near there.
Except it’s spelled Minocqua.
The ostrich silhouette is clearly a rhea. The chimp is clearly a bonobo. And the soccer player is clearly a basketball player running after a ball. This person can’t get anything right.
I can safely say that this is no skyline of any city now.
I ordered a skyline of the Jersey Shore, and all I got was 4 feet of black tape.
Now what is Snooki going to wear to the club?
Holy shit, a Waukegan shout on on Regretsy?! Nice. That is where I grew up.
