Going for the Mug Instead of the Key Chain
This one may cost you a little bit of money and maybe even some self-respect, but buying a totally tacky mug with your name on it—instead of the cheaper and less easy-to-spot keychain—from a weird roadside attraction is the way to go. Especially if you're on I-10 near Dragoon Arizona and take Exit 322 on the hilltop between Benson and Willcox. Why? Because such a mug broadcasts in big, fat letters that you are the kind of human that's proud of having seen The Thing. Further, if you screwed up the courage to walk through a creepy wax museum after dark, using your cell phone as a light, avoiding the cats and bird and weird swarming moths that surround the Thing, then you need to commemorate this moment of bravery with a durable, quality souvenir...hypothetically speaking.
