Salad bars in funeral homes
“While you’re waiting, help yourself to our bountiful salad bar. You’ll love our house dressing.”
“Moscow nights were never lovelier, AND SAFER!”
Outlet stores at nuclear power plants
“The Nuke Store, open now at Sea View Nuclear Station! For all your nuclear power needs, at up to half the price. We’ve got T-shirts, mugs and postcards, too.”
Translucent bathing suits
“Modesty, but without the tan lines.”
