Well, we are speeding towards the end of January. It’s cold and most of us are hungry, tired and broke! And not sure if it is just me but everywhere I look I seem to be affronted by images of slim, toned and tanned Z list celebs languishing in paradise with smug smiles and green smoothies!!
So, in the name of sisterhood this week’s blog is a random attempt to make ya smile. Over the past few months these are genuine signs I have seen whilst driving around and they made me giggle, I hope they tickle you too and roll on February!
NEARLY NEW BABY SALE THIS WEEKEND – PROMOTIONAL BANNER ON ROUNDABOUT
Seriously don’t know about you but if I am buying a baby I would rather buy a new one!
FREE EYE TESTS FOR THE BLIND – NOTICE IN MY LOCAL OPTICIANS
Optician ‘Well Mrs Smith the bad news is you are as blind as a bat, but the good news is I haven’t charged you for that eye test? When I first saw this I could not control my giggles and had to leave Tony in the waiting room whilst I left to compose myself.
SECRET BUNKER THIS WAY – ROAD SIGN IN CHESHIRE
Not sure what to say about this? Does not give me any confidence for our post apocalyptic survival.
CASH FOR KIDS – NAME OF LARGE REGIONAL CHARITY
This one always gets me, did no one think of the connotations of this name?
BAMBOO FOR SALE – WILL DELIVER – THIS IS A NOTICE OUTSIDE MY LOCAL GARDEN CENTRE
This always makes me think who in Cheshire is keeping pet Pandas? Why else would anyone need a bulk delivery of Bamboo?
STUDENT STORAGE – SIGN ON SIDE OF ONE OF THOSE HUGE STORAGE CENTRES
My imagination goes into overdrive on this one – I see parents delivering their unkempt, bedraggled teenagers along with a mass of boxes to put into storage for the summer!
BEST HAND JOB IN TOWN – SIGN ON ENTRANCE TO CAR WASH IN MANCHESTER
Not much to say about this one!
PAWN COMPUTERS – A LOCAL BUSINESS
The guy that runs this business, genuinely does not get how problematic this name is and how damaging for his brand, however, I suppose on the plus side it is definitely memorable and gets people talking!
Normal blogging will resume next week!
