Apparently, a 76 Station in Sherman Oaks has been dispensing messages to customers for some 10 years now. "t’s not the cheapest gas in town, but it’s clearly the most articulate," said blogger Lucinda Michele, who posted about it on Los Angeles. Metblogs. What is says: "Hey, look up here. That's right, here. The least you could do is smile. Why not? Life is too short not to enjoy it," the machine says as you fill up.

A commenter on Metblogs wished that "life had more cheerful easter eggs like this, hidden all around." We couldn't agree more.

You can find the gas station at Woodman and Riverside.
