Title: Have you been hit on the head by a meteorite?

Do you have a headache resulting from being hit on the head by a meteorite? 

Here is the place to get some medication:

I'm not sure if the stone used in its construction was impactite but it is quite likely.  The local church was certainly built from fused rock from a meteorite impact.

Question for the curious: in which town did I take this picture?

I worked that out by googling a town in France that had been hit by a meteorite.

I guess our equivalent would be "LLoyds de la incompetencier" , as they were hit by gross incompetence ,
