A picture may be worth a thousand words, but this week, you had better pop on those reading glasses, as literacy will be required. Sometimes what things say is as funny as they look.
Take this, for example:
Really? Seems like the folks in the promotion department went on vacation, and the mail room thought this would be a lark (or a chicken, as the case may be). I can’t imaging anyone thinking, “cool, chicken poop for lips” Although, it claims not to actually contain any, would you trust them? What else DOES it contain?
Here’s another where we are pretty sure not everyone was consulted on the advertising:
I think if the man calls her a Comfort Bag one more time, there are grounds for divorce. Guess it at least gives her the option of being hot or cold. I think I would opt for cold comfort. Seems fair, as you never see a woman being carefully wrapped in a heating pad by a man.
The woman in the above ad would probably be thinking this on the inside:
Seems like a not so artistic, or subtle, way of telling the world what you think. Surely the designers of this wall plaque must have noticed, right? Then again, does it mean the same thing in China? Anyway, I am sure this will be snapped up by some snarky college student for his frat room, and will deliver hours of endless prepubescent jokes.
We decided this sign was right on the money:
Unfortunately, that lovely time-saver, the computer, has become the go-to time waster in our homes. What did we do before this? Oh yeah, we cleaned the house. If you believe that, we have some lovely beachfront property down the road for sale. (For those that don’t know, we both make Colorado our home, and even though we tried massive flooding this summer, we don’t run to beaches around here.)
For some reason this week, we saw signs everywhere. Here is a whole display that had many that tickled our funny bone:
The mouth/brain connection frequently misfires in both of us, especially when shopping. Sometimes we say things, and then have to take a quick furtive look around to make sure no one heard what we said. In many cases they have heard and are laughing with us, but one of these days, we are really going to step in it. Here are some more from the same display:
We were very thankful that the worst of this pattern was on the cover, and we didn’t have to buy it to share with you:
We were very glad to know they were EASY and Elegant-sort of the high-class hookers of the swan world. OK, there was a mouth/brain thing, but it was funny, OK? We did notice that the pattern was totally intact, no cutting of the sewing guides or anything. Can’t imagine why.
This last item, we saw a couple of weeks ago, and it is getting down the list in our photos. We wouldn’t want you to miss it, even though it doesn’t fit with the theme. (Like we really pay that much attention!) Here is another example of why many crafters should be banned from ever setting foot in Hobby Lobby:
The wind is howling today, I am supposed to be moving, and Deb is out of town, so this will be my mantra this week:
