Billboards We'd Like To See - Part I

Hi all,

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to a new concept known as "phoning it in". Let's agree that it's my lame attempt to buy some time as I work out (or, for those of you who know me well enough already, WORK IN) some kinks in new material I'm "developing" for my next "real" post.

Oh, and why not? ... I should add that - having "grown up" on a steady diet of Mad Magazine (how many of you are GENUINELY surprised?) - I am a sucker for "*THINGS* We'd Like To See" posts. So my blog is a natural outlet for this kind of crappe* (* New favorite word, thanks to Blackbird. My definition? A "crap frappe". Classy!).

These are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them.














My apologies to the early birds who have already viewed this and commented. I almost forgot the joke that goes with this last billboard.

*** Obligatory KY Joke: Did you hear about the lady who confused KY-Jelly with Window Putty? Her windows fell out! ***

Sorry.

It's not like posts can be fabulous EVERY time. That's too much pressure.

Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

You made me laugh inappropriately.

Justrun, thank you for your visit. I REALLY like your blog. And your Key West trip took me back to the wonderful time that I had there.

PJ, I am optimistic that it was 100% my material and 0% refinishing fumes. It truly makes me happy to make you laugh. Thanks!

Oh- these are so funny! :)
I think the blog ate my last comment...where do they go???
Cyber Space dump?
Santa Clause letter recycling department? He's getting some weird stuff if thats where lost blog replies end up! :)

Thanks for your comments at MV- you are more of a Prince than you let on! :P

leelee said...

Oh I love these...

really...I do

puerileuwaite said...

FM, if that's the case, I really feel sorry for Santa. It's bad enough that he's got to put up with those horrible department store gigs. Maybe it's all too much. Maybe that's why he never responds to my letters :-(

BTW, the comment that I left was my first attempt at poetry in many years. So thanks for goin' easy on me. And no, I won't quit my day job just yet ...

puerileuwaite said...

Thanks leelee. When phoning it in, I really do try to post worthy material, even if a couple of readers may have seen it elsewhere.

I loved Mad Magazine

puerileuwaite said...

I still crack up about their "Poseidon Adventure" spoof, where our favorite handful of hapless survivors fight their way to the bottom of the ship (which of course is now above water) ...

... just in time to have a SECOND rogue wave hit, which flips the Poseidon to its orginal orientation ...

Ah, I phone it in all the time. The trick is to do lots of little crappy posts. The volume overwhelms 'em.

puerileuwaite said...

I'm starting to slide onto that slippery slope ...

buckled said...

Well, puerileuwaite, imagine my suprise to see doggerelblogger here (as you know, she & I have a long and tortured relationship which now involves us drinking heavily at pretentious, Gatsby-esque parties with our spouses & so-called friends. Usually, these parties start with some attempt at polite conversation, but they soon spiral down into cutting comments and icy stares. Often, there are accusations. Sometimes, voices are raised. Glass breaks. Perhaps a gunshot. Which is odd, really, 'cause she expects me to go to her rented-cottage w/her next wknd. Go figure.).
It's awkward, really.
Ahem.
Well... anyway, I really liked your, um, signs.

puerileuwaite said...

Buckled, you just described the typical family holiday get-together when I was growing up. Except for the pretentious, Gatsby-esque part. I suppose this means that you and doggerel are part of my "cyber-family".

blackbird said...

oof.

The JD comment is quite common out in trailer park littered mid west USA I hear.

GG, it's good to have you back.
