Faribault, Minnesota: A&W Papa Burger

Papa Burger was part of a nuclear "Burger Family" of four that once stood outside many A&W root beer stands. Only a few survive. This one is in good shape.

A&W Root Beer Man

I took a photo of the A & W Root Beer man outside of the A & W Family Restaurant & Drive In on Wilson Avenue in the thriving metropolis of Faribault, Minnesota.

Though he's not a Muffler Man, isn't the biggest of anything that I know of, wasn't constructed out of hardened chewing gum or Fluffy the cat's hairballs, and doesn't mark a spot where the laws of physics are mysteriously nullified, no other roadside symbol that I'm aware of signals such darn good root beer floats.
