Statue of One-Legged Franklin Menz
Rio Grande, New Jersey
A cigar-chomping statue of restaurant founder Franklin Menz greets visitors to the button-paved parking lot. At first glance, the missing leg might appear to be a result of vandalism or neglect -- but Menz was sans leg in real life.
Hanging throughout the family restaurant are unique exhibits that are part of the "Menz Museum." They include a stuffed two-headed calf, an albino deer and other exotic animals. The 2-headed calf, born in 1975, lived for ten weeks (some kind of Guiness record they claim, though we'd have to check against the hundred other stuffed 2-headed creatures in US attractions). You'll also find a composite mutant depiction of the Jersey Devil (never alive).
Before he passed away, Mr. Menz used to ride around in a motorized wheelchair giving out lollipops.
