ROAD TRIP!! | Best Bets For A Zany, Low-Brow School's-Out Holiday

Just knowing there are teapot-shaped eateries in the world makes me blind-drunk happy. At least two of these architectural wonders are right here in Washington state.

School's out, and maybe you're brain dead. Or someone told you that you are. Whatever it is, you need a huge break and have a hankering to head as far from the UW as the $3.59 per gallon of gas your measly budget will allow. We have just the list of sites for you. Hit the road with a collection of vacation stops--not a cerebral or tedious one among them--and feel the jangle in your head melt away...

The Icelandic Phallological Museum
"Probably the only museum in the world to contain a collection of phallic specimens belonging to all the various types of mammals found in a single country. " Oh, but there's so much more than a bunch of torpedo-sized whale penes! Check out "Images" on this site, and when you do, consider this: Wouldn't your best friend be euphoric if he had a liquor vault identical to the one in the museum!?

The Capital Punishment Museum
The museum's most controversial artifact is Joe's "Lucky Finger."

Museum of Funeral Customs
"Providing a deeper understanding of the history of American funeral and mourning customs." Yeah, yeah. Funeral, schmuneral--I'll take a baker's dozen of the dark chocolate coffins, please!
