I previously posted about the Slinky Mastodon at Georgetown that was part of a public art installation in 2005 where individuals or business could purchase a fiberglass “Mastodon”, which the mascot of our local community college and  our way to Applebee’s last night we noticed a new “Mastodon” on the Southwest corner of Coliseum Blvd. and Parnell and decided to check it out after dining.

It was in Front of Penn Station Subs.   It used to a location of Tom’s Donuts and when my son was in Jr. High I used to be able to bribe him into not throwing a fit about getting up and going to school if we were early, he could stop a get a donut.  Not the best parenting, but saved many arguments and him late for school or me late for work.

Another thing about this location as after an auto accident I my car ended up in the parking lot around 16 years ago near where I shot the photo and change my life, health and praise the Lord that I am still here to write this post, but I digress.

On the sign in front of the Mastodon it says:

“East Coast Don

Enjoy by beauty. I am a tribute to the IPFW Mastodons.

For your saftey and mine, please do not sit or lean on me.

Penn Street Station.”

Marv notice that there was a sub painted on the side, but we both wondered what the heck the timber to the right meant.  Did it mean eating their food would make you feel like a lumberjack?  It did not occur to me until just now that I think it is supposed to be French Fries.

Now I am curious to see if Penn Station serves French Fries to confirm that theory as I have never eaten there, so will now have to check them out sometime.
