Military Order of Cooties
Post and photos by the Hawthorne Hawkman.
The Faith Tabernacle Gospel Church has been on the corner of 21st Ave N and 4th St N longer than I've been in the neighborhood. Part of their sign just kind of faded into the background and I never looked too closely at it--until yesterday. The sign reads, "Antsinpants RT. 14 Military Order of Cooties," and may just be the weirdest thing in Hawthorne. That's saying a lot.
Apparently there are a whole slew of "fun and honor" orders of military vets out there, although I'm still unclear as to what exactly the cooties people did.
