Hex CRAZY Zook's Distlefinks and Barbeque Signs of Plywood
Distlefinks and such threaten to bury a likely commissioned BBQ Pig at the Jacob Zook Hex sign factory and house of crafts in Paradise, PA. I believe I remember seeing that very pig sign rotting away behind a restaurant which served breakfast in a skillet 20 miles past the Delaware Gap! I had just filled up and didn't have the gumption go back in to ask if I could have it, nor the energy to steal it. It COULD have been a "later edition" as it looks like Zook could crank them out.
YES Zook is still in business and has a most handsome site HERE
Zook's hexes have "traveled to the fifty states and many foreign lands" according to the reverse.
