Can’t Resist Andy’s Place

Crap Sign

He came up with his crappy slogan while working for an electronic scoreboard advertiser in South Dakota. A nearby carpet company went out of business and needed to sell its sign. For Joseph, it might as well have been divine intervention: “C-A-R-P-E-T.”

“Light went off in my head,” Joseph said. “I can rearrange them letters to spell ‘CRAP.'”
