Everyone who has been to TGI Fridays knows about all the memorabilia (aka junk) that is hanging on all the walls on the restaurant. We, at the Pottstown Fridays are considering retiring Table 33. Why you ask? Well... just over table 33, on the wall, are a lot of pictures and other stuff.
Last evening, just after word got out confirming the death of Michael Jackson, someone noticed something very weird and coincidental. On the wall is a picture of Farrah Fawcett, as Jill Munroe, riding a skateboard. Just to the right of this picture of Farrah, is a picture of Michael Jackson, from the Thriller album, I believe! Lots of people asked the servers if they moved the pictures so they could be together, but no, it's been that way for more than a year and a half, since we did the renovations to the restaurant!!
OK, Here's the shot of the entire montage of pictures and below is a closer shot of Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson and Lou Ferrigno.
Then, just as everyone is getting used to seeing these 2 side by side on the wall, someone mentions that Michael Jackson was preparing for a World Tour. Apparently (or obviously) MJ was not in the best shape, so Lou Ferrigno was hired as his personal trainer! Guess who's picture is sitting just to the right of Michael Jackson??? You got it! Lou Ferrigno as The Incredible Hulk!
I've been calling the wall over Table 33 The Dead Wall. In addition to MJ and FF, also included on this wall are Carroll O'Connor as Archie Bunker, Elvis Presley, Grandpa from the Munsters, Morticia and Gomez Addams, Lurch, Johnny Cash, George Harrison and John Lennon. Watching over everyone is Casper the Friendly Ghost! If I were one of the six living people in pictures on that wall, I'd be nervous! (Eddie Munster, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Lou Ferrigno, Wednesday Addams and Pugsley Addams are all still living)
Weird huh! I can almost hear The Twilight Zone music playing in the background!
I wish I had thought to snap a picture of the wall. Maybe I'll do it on Monday when I go to work and post it later that night!
