My car has an interior trunk release handle. Lots of cars do. Mine, however, shows that you are supposed to run away once you pop the trunk. Apparently, that wasn't obvious to people. The little stick figure man running away cracks me up every time.

He cracks me up too!  The flaw, though, is that when you most need an informative diagram (i.e., locked in the trunk), there's no light to read it by.   :P

Mine glows in the dark.  ;D

I'm afraid to ask how you know.

Agreed.  You can't just make a statement like that and not explain!

*LOL* Well, it's made of material that looks like it glows in the dark, so one night, I popped the trunk and then closed it as far as I could while still being able to see in. It looked glowy to me. I've not yet been able to convince anyone to get in and check.  ;D

Whew! That's a relief. Thanks.

However, next time try for a more exciting explanation, please.

*LOL* I know! Hopefully someday I'll convince someone to crawl in there to make sure it works!  ;D

If I lived near you, I would so do this! I'd love to know how those things work! :D
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

I wish you did! I've always wanted to make sure the thing works but have never had the guts to try it.

On the plus side, I had to replace some tail light bulbs last night (and they are already out again! Must be a fuse problem), so I now know how to knock out my tail lights to draw attention, should I ever be carjacked.  :)

I mean, you could just try it out yourself.  As the picture clearly indicates, there's a release mechanism.   ;)

"Why weren't you at work yesterday?"
"I was locked in my trunk."

Oooh, I thought of another one!

Here in MD, they use the slogan "Click It or Ticket" to remind people to buckle up. (Not sure if it's used in other places as well.) One day, my cousin's husband was sitting in traffic and saw that slogan on a lighted sign. Unfortunately (or, rather, fortunately), some of the lights were out. So the sign read:

LICK IT OR TICKET!

That picture almost got me in trouble at work because I burst out laughing when I saw it.

A former college roommate was traveling and saw a sign for a restaurant with several of the neon burnt out. The sign read:

Texas Road Ho

I still laugh about it.

Shouldn't that be posted under "Things that sound dirty but aren't?"

There's a new Chinese restaurant near where I grew up. The name? "Asian Boy." Ummmm.... what?

We have a pic of DH outside a grocery store in Chicago under a very large sign that says "We have the best meat on the street" - we were giggling like LOONS.

There is a tanning salon in my neighborhood called Cockapoo Tanning. The a in the first word was burned out. DH and I were in fits of giggles like 5th graders!

I think I have a pic of it somewhere.

Another Store down the street is called Ca$h for Gold. On the door it says Warning! No cash kept in store.

Epic Fail.
