Oh, This Would Be a Fun Place to Retire To... NOT

I heard a commercial on the radio for a new retirement community in the Austin area named "Longhorn Village."
Developed in association with The Ex-Students' Association of The University of Texas, Longhorn Village will offer men and women 62 and better a spirited, luxurious, service-oriented lifestyle with advantages no other retirement community in the Austin area can offer.

The location is perfect, in the master-planned community of Steiner Ranch near gorgeous Lake Travis and the UT Golf Club. Longhorn Village represents the finest of a new and growing trend in retirement living: affiliation withthe alumni association of a major university and all the recreational and educational benefits that result. Longhorn Village is a new brand of retirement living.
Oh, yeah... sounds lovely... really... all that burnt orange and cow horns. Ugggg....

There is one thing that made me chuckle, though... their motto is "A New Brand of Retirement Living." I couldn't help but wonder if that new brand was "13-0". (Here's the story if you don't get the joke.)
