Feeling Sorry For Myself
|||||Cream- White Room||]|
I hope this doesn't seem as an intrusive question, but I'm quite curious about it, and I'm also very sorry for the cross posting.
Alright, this is something that has been bothering some friends of mine (and myself, slightly). Well a few of my friends headed off to Mary's Tower, which is near Flemington, NJ (check out http://www.weirdnj.com and search for Mary's Tower) which is this old abandoned tower that is just in the middle of nowhere. There are so many myths and stories about it, one of the major ones being that it was built by this millionaire for his sick wife back in 30's or 40's (I think) so that when she stood in the tower, she could have a view of everything going on at their property. Apparently there must have been a pretty good view of the house, because one day, Mary (the wife) saw her husband having sex with another woman. She was so crushed by this, that she jumped to her doom from the tower. Later on, during the 50's, I think someone else lived in this tower/house, but they too died a strange and painful death. Well, I've wanted to check out this place for so fucking long, and a few of my friends decided to go, but they didn't think of asking me (go figure...it's okay, I'm not hurt, I'll jast have to make them take me...haha) and they took pictures and saw some really fucking weird shit. Nothing in that place has been touched since the 50's, except for whatever kids have destroyed, but I think people are tooscared to ruin anything by the whole myth that if you drive around the place 3 times, then 3 times backwards, and you say "Mary" you will see a ghost with the Devil....hahaha...but ANYWAY.... one of the things that I was told about is this thing spraypainted on the side of an old shed. It says, "Our Ham Came From A Chicken" and there is a picture of this lightbulb-breast right next to it. I saw a picture of this, and the writing looks too old and too precise to be the work of any vandals. So I was wondering, do any of you know anything about that phrase? I can't find it anywhere online, maybe it was a slogan for a chicken brand in the 50's, or maybe it was just some crazy kids, but whatever the case, I'd really like to find this information out. Maybe once I know, I'll be allowed to go with everyone..maybe I was never cool enough, and finding this out will just make me incredibly cool. (sense the sarcasm)
SO...if anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
