### un-ultimate

Submitter Jill writes, "I saw this in Austin, TX. I suspect this is actually the penultimate ladies club."

The quotation marks denote literalism - what they mean is that it is, in fact, the last club you'll ever see. You'll be forced to stare at their name until it becomes legible, which will never happen. Unless, of course, it really is called LaBdte, in which case that's a stupid name.

I can't tell, either. Is it "LaBare?"

Ivan said...

Actually they took the unnecessary quotations a little too seriously. It was only open for a month or two!

And to think, I felt silly b/c I couldn't make out the letters either! It looks like LaBdte although I suppose it was meant to be LaBare. If that was the case, then why didn't they just use letters that were actually readable...

Davey said...

and what's with the shadowing behind the letters changing directions, like, 3 times.

Excellent use of the word penultimate.

By the way, I think it's supposed to say "La Bolte." I don't know what this means.

Davey, I'm not sure I see what you're talking about.

Hahaha my friends and I used to joke about going to "LaBare," but unfortunately, it closed down before we made it.
