Howard Johnson, Fargo, ND.

In my travels I’ve seen all sorts of things  — I’ve seen the Golden Gate Bridge — I’ve seen iguanas fight to the death — I’ve seen Zingerman’s Deli (it’s real!!!!!) — I once saw a video game at a Fudruckers on which a tattered piece of paper hung dramatically warning “Do Not Use!” (I’m not sure what was so dangerous about the game that it didn’t just say “Out of order”) — I’ve seen a homeless man in Denver tightly grip a straw while yelling “I’m not trying to rob you!” at me at 7 in the morning — but this is special. This is a Howard Johnson’s I stayed at in Fargo, North Dakota while on tour. There was something very unusual about my hotel room. See if you can tell what it is:

    I’ve had my fair share of conference room views, my bedroom itself overlooks a conference, but that is one of the nicest ones I’ve ever seen! Downtown Fargo looks swell! Not at all like the murderous shithole those Coen brothers tried to depict it as some 12 years ago.

    Wow! A bed, a microwave, and a complementary conference? You sir have truly hit the big time.

    That is not just a conference–it is “Confabulation! The Dakota Territories’ #1 Indoor Conference Themed Park and Adult Fantasyland”
