  2. AtlantaCPA says:

    Number 3 has a copyright symbol and name, does that mean anything for Consumerist or is media exempt from having to get permission to use a photo? Genuinely curious here.

    • LightningUsagi says:

      Since the person who took the photo entered it into the pool, I think that means they give the Consumerist permission to use it.

    • Laura Northrup says:

      People put watermarks on photos in case they’re stolen and reposted elsewhere with no links.

      Submitting photos to our pool gives us permission to use them on the site. We do tend to avoid pictures with watermarks unless they’re super neat.

    #10 – It’s National Donut Day! I went to D&D for my coffee and they gave me a free donut.

  4. That guy. says:

    Are Rita’s (#1) in places other that New Jersey?

  5. incident man stole my avatar says:

    #1 looks like Ellicott City, MD– Frederick Road and St. John’s Lane… former home to a bank that crashed and burned during the first S&L crisis back in the 80’s

    Ok that’s freaky. The first picture (of the Ritas) is a mile from my house.
