Memphis, Tennessee: Billy Bass Adoption Center

Remember "Big Mouth Billy Bass"? It was a singing wall ornament, in a sense. The toy, which looked like a fish, would belt out "Take Me to the River" and "Don't Worry, Be Happy." They sold a lot of them around 1998.

But now they aren't so popular, just like Pet Rocks. That raises the question, what do you do with it? Luckily, the restaurant chain "Flying Fish" can provide a good home.

Bring in your Billy Bass for the wall, and the restaurant will give you a free order of catfish in return. Each adoption is signed and dated, and other walls are covered too.

There are similar stores in Little Rock, Dallas and Fort Worth, among other places, and the same offer applies. The food there is quite good, and the line when we ate at the Little Rock store was out the door.
