What a great band name! The Minced Oaths!

Reminds me of a cool band called The Sixths, who had an album called "Hyacinths and Thistles".

Look at the Eye Carumba website: One of their two doctors is described thus:

"A third generation Mexican-American, Dr. Torres is fluent in Spanish [...] He is a firm believer in education [...] "

The plot thickens.

Sad to see professionals join the ranks of the tragically hip.

And the sign wasn't cheap! Always stunning to me when businesses don't copy-check before plunking down big bucks on print ads or signage.

It seems that this may be a
pop culture reference: http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Eye_Caramba .

The word does not seem to have been misspelled on "The Simpsons", but it is misspelled on at least one Simpson's trivia site: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096697/trivia .

Bonus: I see "crumb" in "carumba," which wouldn't be there if it were spelled correctly.
