I was reading this Cracked article and it reminded me of one of the silliest yet biggest disappointments of my adult life. See, for a long time I lived in a small town where we only had a McDonald’s and then a few local restaurants. But I’d go visit my family in the city, and I’d see the sign for Twin Peaks from the highway. I was sure it was themed after the TV show.* The day I found out what it really is was very disappointing, both because “breastaurants” are kind of horrible and because I was in my 30s and really should have known better.

So what are your silly, naive, weird or otherwise funny disappointments in life?

*I’m not exactly sure how I thought that a short-lived early ‘90s cult TV show had a big enough fan base to support a chain restaurant.
