Sneaky Pete

Comments (4)

I frequently pass a tree and firewood place on the way to work. The business has one of those signs out front where you can change out the letters to spell whatever quirky message best suits your mood. The owners seem to struggle with a terrible sense of humor, and I always want to smash my head into a wall when I read their sign.

Here are three examples, starting with the one from last winter, followed by the one from this summer, and ending with the current one:

  • "Our firewood roars, and we aren't lion!"
  • "We're sweaty, and we're ready!"
  • "For more information, call Pete."

The last one is what I saw this morning, which caused me to do a neck-breaking double-take. What happened, guys? Run out of horrible puns and slightly disturbing rhymes? And who is Pete? Is he the new, mean manager who decided to take a "more professional" approach to marketing?

These are the things that keep me up at night.

LMAO!

I have a picture I took a few years ago of a sign on a self-storage place that read:

"Surprise her with a big unit for Sweetest Day"

... hee hee!

You should buy some of those letters.

Because that second one, for example, is dying for "...ladies" to be added to it.

The one thing I find to be really tacky is when businesses use one-liner rhymes to entice people to come in to their store. It's even worse if it's spelled wrong. The worst part is, almost every business around here uses these tacky lines, even churches! I'm wondering if there's just one man who solicits his humourous one-liners to business...

Places like that should get an electronic board that is hooked up to your twitter account. Then even people who don't know what twitter is can know and love you!

...Wow that cam out a lot sappier than I was going for... awkward turtle!
