Dallas tour bus of Kennedy assassination: 'Big Things Happen Here'

One tour company in Dallas has a special bus that might just hook you in — or drive you away in shock.

The bus features a photo of President John F. Kennedy superimposed with the city of Dallas' major tourism slogan: "Big Things Happen Here." And that's not all: As D Magazine points out, the design of the bus also unfortunately results in having the rear door's handle protruding out of Kennedy's forehead.

The bus company's website prominently advertises this special tour on the Kennedy assassination. Such a tour could certainly be a worthy historical enterprise, if done properly — though their promo pages also have advertising elements that market themselves to the conspiracy theorists.

But at the very least, they might want to reconsider some of the visual elements on that bus. --Eric Kleefeld
