A Web Log about signs from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity
People often comment to me about the marquee signs that are in front of Tire Discounters, or, as I like to call it, the Greatest Tire Store in the World. Some people even think that I might have a hand in writing them. Well dear reader, I can assure you that I don’t. The truth is, friends tell me that my sense of humor is somewhat, shall we say, underdeveloped.
Frankly, I find some of the signs a bit off-putting. For example, one sign recently started out
just fine. The first line read “Family
Owned and Operated”. That’s very sweet,
isn’t it? But it then goes on to say
“Shut up – No, You Shut Up.” Why? I simply don’t understand this kind of rude,
In fact, I have suggested a few signs to my good friend Chip Wood. For example, I think “Alignment – So Crucial!” would be of service to public. Certainly better than “Voted Number #1 Tire Store, Thanks Mom!” I mean, how reliably can one’s mother judge one’s efforts? Wouldn’t she be bias toward her son?
It isn’t as though I don’t at all understand humor,
though. I even wrote a “knock-knock”
“Knock-knock,” said I to the attractive young lady behind
the cash register at the health food store.
“Oh, I love those jokes!
“I’m a Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity!”
“A Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity who?”
“That’s me!” I shouted!
“I don’t get it.”
Actually, neither did I.
But I’m used to that. She, on the
other hand, seemed rather disappointed.
