The Abersush Home for Old Men

Because it made me laugh when I read it during lunch today, a passage by the inimitable Ambrose Bierce from his short story, The Applicant:
"It is a somewhat dull-looking edifice, of the Early Comatose order, and appears to have been designed by an architect who shrank from publicity, and although unable to conceal his work—even compelled, in this instance, to set it on an eminence in the sight of men—did what he honestly could to insure it against a second look."
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
