Eye pollution

As I made my way up I-75 today, I noticed a billboard promoting a new planned community development as:

Mayberry, with a modern twist.

Well, see, the problem with that one is ... Mayberry is not modern. Will there be a town drunk, an inept deputy, an effeminate gas station attendant, a folksy sheriff, an Aunt Bee ... ? Are the roads dirt? Is there a fishin' hole nearby?

Is that in your covenance?

Nitpicky, I know, but I hate packaged charm.
