F&D's Smokehouse was just joking around.
The barbecue joint, which opened five weeks ago in Crystal City, Missouri, posted a message on its prominent roadside sign earlier this week that surely went right over the heads of small children — but had adults laughing out loud. "We rub our meat before we pull our pork," the restaurant boasted. Hilarity ensued.Well, not entirely. This being 2017, some of the good people of Jefferson County were pissed — and naturally, they took to social media. Several good citizens took to the Facebook page Jeffco 411 about the euphemisms. "How unprofessional," one woman wrote. "Before the attacks start, yes, I do see the humor in it, but NOT for a business sign."
