“A TOWN?!?!?!, Heck, I thought I was just buying the strip club! What am I supposed to do with a whole town?”

He’s only about 50 miles away from Carl’s Corner!

What an asshole. When one of my friends needs a quick few million in cash, I just give it to them. I don’t make them sell me one of their towns.
Cheapskate.

Did he pay his taxes?

I guess that’s one way to impress a stripper you have your eye on…

Suspicious transaction isn’t suspicious at all

I’ll be your friend if you buy my crap I can’t get rid of for only $1million.

See - I’m a much better friend.

Hm. If he owns the town, then it should be easy to hire himself as a part-time cop, giving him a loophole to restrictive carry laws elsewhere.

Robert Mercer didn’t buy a town, but I’m sure money changed hands.

So he didn’t buy an actual town, he bought a trailer park.

Clearly I up my friendship game to bidding wars. :smirk:

How does 77 acres get defined as a town? Isn’t that just a small farm with a couple of houses on it?

Mustang, Texas
Mustang, an incorporated community on Farm Road 739 just east of Angus in central Navarro County, was the site of several liquor stores and a dance hall in the early 1990s. The population in 1987 was twelve, and in 1990 it was thirty-five.

The article doesn’t mention that the place is adjacent to I-45, the major route between Galveston and Dallas, so it isn’t exactly off the beaten path. Been by there a number of times, but had no reason to stop & barely noticed it.
Kind of a strange place for a ‘cabaret’, though.

No, instead it’s a “wide spot in the road,” barely

Aw heck, just put up a dance hall or two.

Or turn the Cubaret into a regular ol’ music venue.

It ain’t hard and there’s plenty out there who’d say the Foat Wuth / Dallas area could sure use one more dance hall. People get married in dance halls. They have family reunions in dance halls. Scootin’ yer boots is a fine way to blow off some steam and keeps people off the streets.
