While driving down the road I noticed a little hole in the wall store.  Not sure exactly what it was but it was offering discount legal forms & stuff for sale.  The sign in the window???  "Guns, knives, divorce kits" 

Wow! ;D

"If the gun or the knife doesn't work, we'll give you a refund and a free divorce kit!"
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Back in the 1970s there was a firm of lawyers in NYC.  Even though they were based in an Irish neighborhood I'm not sure if they got much business.  The firm was named after the partners, 'Lawless and Lynch'.

Makes me think of the lawyers from (I think it's) "Car Talk"--Dewey, Cheatam, and Howe.

I think they used the same law firm in a Daffy Duck cartoon once.....maybe it was "Duck Dodgers of the 21st Century".

I think that goes even further back to the original "Three Stooges" movies, but I could be wrong.

The firm apparently has its own web page http://www.dewey-cheatham-howe.com/history.

I've attended/worked on the same college campus for years. There's a dorm near my office called "Allen Residences." Every year--every year--the kids scratch at the letters on the sign to make it read "Alien Residences." One doesn't want to encourage vandalism, but I find it hilarious--the first time, because I'd never thought how close "Allen" and "Alien" were, and all the times after that because I imagine how clever the new class of students think they are, for coming up with this great new joke.  8)

in a collectibles and comics shop:
Any loose children will be sold to the highest bidder.

In the same shop:
Sorry, we're
Open

This one made me laugh HARD.  ;D I know of several businesses that SHOULD post this sign in their window...

On the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus there's a residence called 'Ogg Hall'.

I'm sure the Ogg family is a fine one but, every time I see that sign, I can only envision a dorm inhabited by gnomes.

Would that have been in a small, college town in northern New York? I'm curious as I saw the same sign on a shop with similar merchandise while I was there.

I saw this at a local apartment complex. I'm sure I seemed like a loon to anyone who saw me laughing and/or taking its picture, but I knew I had to share it here.

A local church posted the following on its front sign:

Yelling, "Oh, God!" does not constitute attending Mass.


My mom thought it was crude but I loved it.
No one ever says, "Why me?!?!" when something good happens.

I was taking a train trip along Boston's North Shore.   We went by this tidal pool sort of area.  There was literally half of an old rowboat rotting on the shore.   It was in bad condition and getting worse by the minute.

The name painted on it?

Years ago, when we visited Chicago, there was a billboard that made us look several times before we could believe it. 

It was an ad for prophylactics and advised that the brand was, 'the best for your wurst'.

Removed.  I started to think it wasn't quite in the spirit of the board.  It was a joke I remembered because of the church sign so if you want to 'hear' it, PM me.

After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

On a wedding invitation I received years ago (and just found in my scrapbook):

"The flavor of your reply is requested"

I want strawberry flavor.



*there was no option for a dinner choice so it wasn't a play on words.

This post may be a little raw for E-Hell.  If it is thought to be so, please remove it.

Last night was the local LGBT parade. This is a family-friendly affair.  Houses of worship and schools participate.  This was he first time we saw a new organization in the parade.  It has the laudable goal of promoting safe 'Scrabble' practices.  There was a problem with the name of the group. 'Condom Nation' might sound wonderful but, if you stop to think about it, the name could send exactly the opposite message of the one intended.
