Horseshoes and Handgrenades


Original, signed Chris Mars Horseshoes and Handgrenades print available [#45/1000]. This is a sweet deal at $500 USD framed. Especially considering that his paintings sell for gonzo money [$14,000 – $75,000]. If have an interest in this amazing piece contact terra_bella773 (at) yahoo (dot) com


Pride of Springfield, Illinois – The Horseshoe. They say there is a sandwich under them thar fries.

You could toss a handgrenade around here and not hit a horseshoe. A horseshoe sandwich, that is. Close enough, I am not. The famous horseshoe, the kind you eat, is at least 3 states away, maybe four. I’d have to get out the atlas to know for sure.

As in love as I am with indigenous sandwich monstosities, the horseshoe never entered my field of vision until my binoculars were pointed in the direction of Springfield, Illinois by Amazing Bob on the Bottle Rockets message board.

Sandwiches buried in sauce would be a subset in my field guide. Yes, there are two pieces of bread, but a fork and knife are essential. Err, recommended.


From what I understand, if you eat a horseshoe in its entirety you may feel as though you pulled the pin and swallowed a buttered handgrenade…

  1. actually that horseshoe is pretty good! kind of a diet killer but eating that was actually the most interesting activity i had while in springfield for business…. they also have a smaller size, called the “Pony shoe”.
