Man who built own business with no help enjoying his Interstate highway system
A Knoxville man who had absolutely positively no help from the government in the creation of his small business is enjoying his own personal Interstate highway system. "Oh, man, it's awesome," said Dave Tillman, owner of Dave's Donuts. Tillman built his own network of limited-access roads on which to transport cargo shortly before opening his own fried dough eatery in 2010. "I mean, it was expensive as hell," said Tillman. "It cost me billions to make my own infrastructure. But I included ramps, so I can make some sweet jumps. And there's no traffic here on Interstate Dave Is Awesome." Tillman said building his own business by himself was worth it, but that it has been difficult at times. "Establishing my own currency was a bit of a challenge," he said. "I had to find a lot of gold. Then I had to design and print my own money. I had to find about 9,000 ink cartridges. And weirdly the police force that I hired to protect my store would not accept Dave Dollars. That's the stuff they don't tell you when you're pulling yourself up by your bootstraps."
