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.

Oh dear, imagine if the "apoo" part had burned out!  :o

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

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

My sister and her boyfriend both tried out mine. And now I know my trunk will hold at least two adults...

I should take a picture of that handle. It is great.

Oooh, thank you Google!

In our local area, the Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers are the two big college football teams.  A lot of local people are quite rabid fans of both teams.

Mr. Sirius and I were behind a vehicle with "OREGON DUCKS" on the rear window.  Mr. Sirius commented, "I guess Oregon saw it coming."   Cracked me up.

This is OT, but just wanted to say that I have one of each fan in my house.  Neither person has gone to either school, as they are 9 & 11, but boy, you should be in my house when The Civil War is going on.

One of my favorite signs was outside a church.  It said:

The Word of God is a wrench that will fit ANY nut.

From our recent trip to Port Aransas:



Don't know about you, but I don't want my fresh shrimp turning ANYWHERE.

I cracked up at that picture. Of course, I didn't picture the shrimp turning bad; I pictured a little cartoon family of shrimp driving a car and turning while others went straight.

Also, when I typed "shrimp turning bad," I pictured the same cartoon shrimp turning into street thugs.

I have got to start sleeping!  ;D

As opposed to the Good Shrimp, who Went Straight?

I once saw a sign outside of a convenience store that advertised:

Lottery
Liquor
Cigarettes
Guns

Almost all vices covered!

There is one place in a neighboring town.  Half the sign says "15 minute Tag and Title Service" and the other half says "Ice Cream, Snowcones, Italian Ices."

In my town there is, of all things, a vacuum repair shop that's been in business for a long time. They've always had a religious sign in their window, usually something simple like "Jesus Saves." The other day I noticed they'd changed it to, "We try to save your vacuum. But Jesus saves YOU." I feel a little weird about religious signs in not-explicitly-religious stores, but l like when they at least try to have a little fun with it. :)

This weekend, LadyTango and I went on a tour at the Stevens Point Brewery in Stevens Point, WI.  One of the shirts for sale in their gift shop said "Point Beer: Now cheaper than gas.  Drink, don't drive."
