Why doesn't someone open up a laundromat that's also a bar. Laundry is a nuisance, but if you could grab a drink, pick up a chick/dude, get wasted... laundry wouldn't be such a chore. This place would be a mad pick-up joint.

       You could have drinks named after detergent - Tide, Downy, etc. and theme nights for singles..."Swapping Laundry" night, "Load and a Shot" night...the possibilities are endless!

       We had one of these at Louisiana Tech in Ruston, La. "Fun-o-mat" was a lot of fun -- there was more beer being drunk than laundry being cleaned.

       Suds & Suds in Corvallis, Oregon is another example of this. Very punny (and probably popular among the students of Oregon State :)

       The Laundrobar - Chicago, IL at the intersection of Southport Ave. and Newport Ave.   

       There is also laundromat on Broadway that offers Free Soap when you go have a drink at the lesbian bar next door (The Closet).

       "BAR of SOAP" in Fair Park, Dallas, TX. The prob is that once in awhile some drunk mofo nabs your laundry by mistake. I'd like to see a drink and drive-in car wash crash course. It could happen.

       The only problem with this is that it involves going out and trying to pick people up while wearing the things that you only wear when they're the only clean things left in your dresser.

       Dud's and Sud's - don't see them around anymore. Must have been that folks were spending more money on Sud's and not enought on the "money making" Dud's???? Who knows. Merely a musing.

       /...drink and drive-in car wash crash course./   

       I'm just wondering how to break up the enunciation of that last part, julien. Four nouns in an unpunctuated string; rare in Enlgish, but presumably deliberate punstuff. No doubt, drinking and drive-ins would result in some sort of crashing... :D
