There used to be a restaurant in Waterville called “The Silent Woman.” Its sign depicted jolly men raising their glasses at a plank-like table. Behind them, carrying a serving tray, hovered a buxom woman with no head. The restaurant advertised in the back of The New Yorker. “Someday,” read the ad, “you will find yourself in Waterville, Maine.”
The text proved prescient.
