fishing-tackle store that
once existed in Clifton, New Jersey, that
was actually called "Bill's Tackle Shop." The store was owned by an old man named
Bill, who had a horrifyingly huge, and severely
injured & damaged nose that
looked like it was most
likely smashed with
a brick, used as a pin-cushion
some hideous, degenerative disease. How something
like this could happen to a man's nose remains a mystery shrouded in darkness.
Those who entered the store and encountered Bill, and his offensively grotesque, mutant-nose, would
become so paralyzed with utter
shock & disgust at the very sight of the vile atrocity, they would
immediately forget what they had originally came into the store for in the first
place, turn around, and leave. As they would
drive home, it often became
commonplace to theorize with
friends on how Bill's nose could have possibly
become such a mangled, foul
abomination, leading to the shop being
unofficially renamed by it's customers to include the mention of Bill's (insert adjective here) nose in the shop's name, again and again. The first
of the new names being
"Bill's Busted Nose & Tackle."
