16 March, 2006


Okay, this one is a bit of a cop-out. I'm running late with posting this week's thirteen. It is Thursday night, Australian time. And then, I couldn't think of thirteen cool things, but just remembered an article in the paper on the weekend that gave me a bit of a chuckle. So here are thirteen signs with a sense of humour.

1. Sign over a gynaecologist office: "Dr. Jones, at your cervix."
2. In a podiatrist's office: "Time wounds all heels."
3. On a septic tank truck in Oregon: "Yesterday's Meals on Wheels."
4. On a plumber's truck: "Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber."
5. At a tyre shop: "Invite us to your next blowout."
6. At a towing company: "We don't charge an arm and a leg. We want tows."
7. On a maternity room door: "Push, push, push."
8. At an optometrist's office: "If you don't see what you're looking for, you've come to the right place."
9. Outside a muffler shop: "No appointment necessary. We hear you coming."
10. In a veterinarian's waiting room: "Be back in five minutes. Sit! Stay!"
11. At the electric company: "We would be delighted if you send in your payment. However, if you don't, you will be."
12. In the front yard of a funeral home: "Drive carefully. We'll wait."
13. In a radiator shop: "Best place in town to take a leak."

Finally, a sign which I adore!!

LOL!! That's great-- love #8, and the actual sign-- that should be EVERYWHERE. I'm amazed how many parents don't mind their children while off and about. My TT is up!

I love that sign - why didn't I think of that when I had a retail store and people did not mind their children?

The puppy expresso sign is the best.

I once saw a sign in a diner that said, "Our sandwhiches are so fresh we have to slap them twice a day!"

All signs point to my 13 at http://akaenigma.blogspot.com/

Too funny. I must admit that when i first read these yesterday I didn't get the one about the electric company being delighted (must have been having a slow day), but today the light went on (groan!).
