Found this imposter in Newport News last weekend. I wonder what lighthouses have to do with storage units...

The same connection as with pizza joints, used car lots and appliance stores and that is to attract attention. The same thing as flying greatly oversized flags.

Tiny ... it a chain of self storage facilities ... Ive seen many in
NJ ... appears they are widespread ... http://www.shurgard.com/


Then I went trolling ... found this

There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.
No one knows how many humdingers there are in a lollapalooza.
