signs of the apocalypse.

WHOA! did that catch your attention? I just wonder how many people are out there Googling "when is the last possible moment to repent" and ending up here instead. The answer my friends is NOW! (at least that's what the wind told me...)

I love hanging out with funny people...  I mean - 97.9% of the people in the world are going to see this sign and say "yummmmmmmm... fries..."  but no, my sister - she reads it literally.  What - you think it actually says "Jack in the BOX?"
Nope, it quite clearly says "Jack in The B'Fish"

and this one I owe to my former boss and her wonderfully snarky family:

When getting engaged you always hear "He went to Jared"  (well, you do if you listen to a lot of talk radio...  seriously, they think their target audience listens to Dr. Laura?)

What do you hear if the future love of your life goes shopping HERE instead?
"Oh Brenda - he finally asked me to marry him?"

     "Congratulations Jeanie, tell me, all about how he proposed, and about the RING!!!"

"It's gorgeous - he went to JK!"

      "What?  JK?  don't play games with me Jeanie... is he or isn't he off the market?"

"Brenda - what's the problem?  oh..."

                                     silence (probably a few cricket chirps... or maybe it's just a cheap synthesizer)

"Ummmm... Jeanie, you don't think he... I mean... he DOES want to marry me right?  He's not Just Kidding about THAT is he.  Oh Shoot, I need to call and cancel the cultural hall - talk to you later!"

Sounds like some-one might need a new name for their jewelry store? 

Personally I'm partial to Kay... because "every kiss begins with K" makes a LOT more sense to me than singing "Kindness begins with ME" with the kids at church...  they're not stupid, they know that kindness begins with K too...

Oh, I think I'm tired... there's a difference level of stupid humor that comes out at night-time after a sleepless night.  When my family heads home next week I'll post something less "punch drunk"  --  and if I'm lucky I'll get caught up on all my blog reading as well!

I love funny people!!

Kristina P. said...

I love it. You should be JK's spokesperson.

Cheeseboy said...

JK Jewelers probably sells a lot of those zubick zuconiums or whatever they are called.

Never noticed that about Jack in the Box.

One Cluttered Brain said...

I don't what else to say!
I love your punch drunk humor!

Garden of Egan said...

That is sorta funny.
You should drink punch more often.

JoJo said...

Oh Gosh I did read it as jack in the box! What does that say about me?!

As for diamonds, now that's a topic I LOVE to talk about. What is up with those weird diamond store names?!

Besides everyone knows the best diamonds are in the diamond distinct midtown nyc. The only place where you can bargain for a real sparkler!

Cherie said...

I will never look at the Jack in the Box sign the same way again - ha ha!

Megz said...

Your sister is like one of those people who see the silhouette picture of an old lady when everybody else sees the young girl, right?
I don't even read the dang signs....I just see fries. Wonder what else I'm missing?

S said...

I am always going to laugh when I see the Jack in The Box sign now! I am going to let my family in on the secret, maybe!

Have lots of fun with your family!

Lisa said...

I never understood how the "kiss begins with K" until you wrote it out just now. See, even when you're punch drunk, you're still spot on and clarity abounds. More so than I am when I'm fully rested.

I'll never eat at Jack in the Fish ever again…I hate fish.

wendy said...

Humor is great!!
I remember YEARS ago as a primary chorister....we were singing Little Purple Pansies specked with yellow gold.....
one little boy thought I was saying
oh my, yes I was laughing right out loud
cause that's what I do

Jen T said...

The world would be a very sad place if we didn't have funny people. I think we need more of them!

Rockin Austin said...

Haha! I love you when you're 'punch drunk', very funny indeed.

Sher said...

Okay, I'm a little slow and it took me a while to figure out where you were getting Jack in the B'Fish.

Sometimes I want to throw scales out the window -- or rig them to lie convincingly. Maybe it would help if I got a picture of what I want to look like and tape it over the mirrors?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha ha That was awesome. It does say Jack in the B fish. ahahahahah

And that JK JK was heelarious too. You're on a roll!

Krista said...

Funny! I love it! All of it! Can you tell some of these people write and produce their own commercials? Sick and wrong. You should totally do it for them!
