Every now and then I see things that tickle my funnybone. Here are a few of the latest winners:
Thanks, but no thanks. I’ve got more than enough blood pressure of my own after waiting in the interminable lineup.

Is it just me, or does that say “Stop quality driving”? I think their cause has been widely adopted in Calgary. Ain’t no quality driving here.

I guess it kept arriving before it left. Or wait, is there a Tardis in there? Ha, I knew Dr. Who would have to update his look eventually!

This next photo confronted me on a news page. (I added the discreet black box just for your sakes, my dear readers. If you prefer the full monty, I’ll send you the unaltered version in a plain brown wrapper… for a price. That’s called “monetizing your blog”.)
There was just so much about the first glance that made me laugh:
- It’s a staid and proper news site (note the seriousness of the other four items). Business and finance, world politics. And it had a gratuitous dick on it. *snickers like a ten-year-old*
- When you look at it closely… (No, look at the background. Stop trying to peek under the black box.) …there are several women standing around in dresses1. How often do you see a guy hanging his junk out full spread-eagle in a public place? Without getting arrested, I mean.
- It’s “Most Popular” and “Recommended”. Guys, imagine the prestige of having your manhood voted “Most Popular”. I don’t seem to recall that particular honour being bestowed in our graduating class – I think we just had a plain old valedictorian. But ours was a little backwater school, so what did we know?
- And… just in case you didn’t realize what you were looking at, they labelled it. In big red letters: “The penis”. Dang, I never would’ve figured that out on my own. But then again, maybe they felt clarification was necessary. Having seen the unaltered photo, I can only conclude that it must have been chilly that day.

Or maybe their model had been using this product (which I found in the Michaels craft store, in case you’re looking for last-minute gift ideas):

Would you buy ShrinkyDinks? Who/what was voted “Most Popular” in your graduating class? Am I the only one who snickered childishly at the misplaced dick pic?
1The women were my first clue, triggering a vague recollection from my years of studying art history. I didn’t recognize it at first glance but it’s actually a photo of a statue, which changes everything. As we all know, marble dicks (regardless of inappropriate camera angles and cropping) are Art, and therefore Not To Be Sniggered At. If I had known, I would’ve treated the subject with due respect. Probably.
But it was still pretty funny that it popped up (*snicker*) on the news site after I’d snapped the ShrinkyDinks only days before.
