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."

I passed a car today with a magnetic sign advertising someone's small business - "Unicorn Grooming Salon."  I imagine business is pretty slow.

The signs on the boarding around a rubble-strewn, soon-to-be-construction-site near me, bearing the name of the local company who knocked down the original building:

LOST WORLD DEMOLITION

Aside from the obvious amusement, I can't pass them without entertaining thoughts of Professor Challenger and a horde of dinosaurs leaping majestically over the boarding, and galloping off into the city centre.

Maybe I'm just tired, but I was at AC Moore, and they had scented pencils called "Smencils." Every time I think "smencil," I giggle.

*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...

And this is why I never volunteer for things.  Next thing you know you are locked in a trunk trying to find out if the release mechanism works while your friends drink all your beer.

I think there may be irony in this scenario, given your username, deadbody. ;)

Good to know where to find those, my son's class last year sold these as a fundraiser and every time I giggled.

One of the specialty coffees at Starbucks is said to have "notes of red current" amongst its characteristics.

This isn't a real sign, but it should be (and it makes me giggle).

DH has that little glow-in-the-dark trunk release handle in his car, complete with stick figure running away. He decided to see if it worked and shut himself inside the trunk (I was outside the car, just in case). It did work, but still a good thing he did it with someone on standby.

Just saw one today at the recycling center, posted on a wooden privacy fence: 

This is NOT a toilet.
The toilet is in the
building behind you.
USE IT.

A pity that something like that even needs to be said.  ::)

I just saw a good one at the bikini espresso stand on my way to work.  "Check out our muffin tops! "  Thanks but I will pass. :P   

BTW They are actually meaning the food, they have another sign out further down the parking lot advertising that they get their baked goods daily from "Local Bakery"

DH and I went to DD's "back to school" night. On the wall of her classroom was a list of rules the kids came up. My favorite is #1:

Keep your hands, feet, and teeth to yourself.

Note: the class is a bunch of 4 year olds.
