Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
What fun. Do you go out and take pictures of all these signs or find them on the Internet?I once saw a sign on a small strip mall in a rural town that read: Pizza - Guns - Donuts. I thought that was amusing and used it in my book, One Small Victory, when the central character was looking for a place to buy a gun. Her reaction to the sign was the same as mine. Do they take a pizza, shoot a hole in it and make a donut?
These are great. Except I almost ruined my keyboard when I spewed coffee over a couple of them. Have a wonderful weekend!
Maryann; I find these pictures on the internet. I'm glad you liked them. And I would worry about that store. Is the lesson salt leads to violence which leads to sugar?Carol: SCORE!!!
Elspeth, you've done it again!
I love the signs! Especially the sign warning of the sign's sharp edges... why not just take down the sign?CD
Love it! I really needed a good laugh this afternoon. Thanks :)
Elspeth - Oh, thank you!! I love it!! I think my favorite is the T-shirt about lowering standards. Hey, maybe I can use that approach in my query letters .... ; )
I'm getting a t-shirt like that! Love it :)
Hilarious.Except the cow one. It looks to be an Aussie sign. We have a lot of unfenced roads out west. Cows or sheep on the road at night, scary!
I want that lower standards t-shirt!!!!
Just so hilarious. I popped over from Al's and liked the sound of BC. I like the lower the standards one. Love to find that! In hopes of a few more laughs, I've become a new follower..:)
I'm glad everyone enjoyed these; and welcome L'Aussie!
Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
