You’ll have to look closely

Not this sign, but still a very important sign.

Pecan Lodge is widely beloved in Dallas, but the Deep Ellum establishment has been targeted by thieves as of late. This morning, Pecan Lodge owners showed up at their barbecue joint only to find that one of its signs had been stolen, and replaced by some pretty unique artwork.

A post to Pecan Lodge’s Instagram account details the crime. Apparently, the framed sign was a replacement for some original artwork that had been stolen previously. Now, it’s an incredibly life-like rendering of (you guessed it) a penis. Slim’ Pickins indeed.

No word yet on what will replace this brilliant piece of artistic work, but it will no doubt contain plenty of Pecan Lodge’s signature snark.
