oh you can't call housekeeping up in massachusetts

Ah, once again Roadside America intrigues and bewilders me, this time with a report on what's happened to the house where Lizzie Borden may or may not have murdered her family so many years ago:
The house of death still stands, across the street from the bus station. Now known as the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast-Museum, it offers guests a night of sleep in the murder rooms. Slumber in the Andrew & Abbey Borden Suite, or in the John Morse room (where Lizzie's stepmother got whacked). The home has been restored "to its original look at the time of the murders." According to their promo literature: "Guests are treated to a breakfast similar to the one the Bordens ate on the morning of the murders, which includes bananas, jonny-cakes, sugar cookies and coffee in the addition to a delicious meal of breakfast staples."
Jonny-cakes and sugar cookies? Fella's gotta have a hearty breakfast if he's gonna be brutally murdered in the afternoon. (I wonder if they let you take afternoon naps on the couch, too.)

The other thing I wonder is how many people, do you suppose, have gone to this B&B thinking "Hot dog! I'm gonna have sex in the murder room tonight!"




...what?! I'm just sayin, is all.
