The SyFy Channel Reminds Me of the "Cracker Barrel" Restaurant


Have you ever been to a "Cracker Barrel" restaurant? After you walk in the front door, you aren't sure what you just walked into. The first thing you see is not a restaurant with people sitting down and eating, but rather a mini-retail store of some sort that sells the funkiest junk you can possibly imagine. They sell packaged candy bars and candies from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. They sell calenders, mugs, t-shirts, VHS tapes, and DVDs. Books, stuffed animals, and the list goes on and on. In short, this mini-retail store inside of every "Cracker Barrel" restaurant has no central theme to the types of junk it sells. If you can navigate your way past the odd smell of this mini-retail store, you reach the entrance to the restaurant where you do see people sitting down and eating. After the hostess sits you down at your table, you're still not sure what you just stumbled into.

This in a nutshell...in every sense of the word....is the SyFy Channel. Like "Cracker Barrel" restaurants, you can't help asking..."What the hell is the SyFy Channel?"
