Trojans, the All Purpose Gift... or One Size Fits All?

9-10 condoms Time to mix it up a little. Too much real estate or politics makes Gino a dull boy - so as I travel around I collect strange little items of interest (at least of interest to me). One of those items is SIGNS. People do the weirdest things with signs. Grocery store signs, street signs, signs on churches - you name it. Sometimes you'll be innocently driving down the road and you'll see a sign that'll cause your coffee to shoot out your nose (or beer, depending on what state you're driving in). So here, for your Wednesday chuckle, are a few signs dedicated to the ubiquitous condom. don't read




Be forewarned - if you are looking for serious real estate talk:









picnicCondoms are the stuff of humor - we've all heard the story of the young man confidently requesting a dozen of the largest from the corner druggist only to meet the man again when he goes to pick up his date that evening - her father. This store-owner apparently believes a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine and thou make a good picnic.

school



Let's see, I need some #2 pencils, a spiral tablet, a new slide rule, a gummy eraser and, oh yeah Mom, be sure to pick me up one of them orange packs of rubbers for study hall.



mom


Nothing says 'Happy Mothers Day' like a pack of King Dongs from the kids. Could we get these gift wrapped, please, and have the card read "Ma, we love you but the trailer's full. Stop."



microwave




I'm not exactly sure why you'd want to microwave it in the first place. If you need to sterilize your 'apparatus', I think boiling is the better solution. This conjures up some painful mental images and if you don't heed this warning the first time, there probably won't be a 2nd opportunity.


bargain


Of course you want to shop around a little. Always good to get a bargain.

Some bargains are better than others.

Because remember, the reason you are using these, whether it's at a picnic, or at school or on a special occasion like Mothers Day or Armistice Day, you want to avoid the...



lemons


But don't despair, if something does go wrong and life hands you lemons, just make lemon, errrr, just make orange juice.
Hope you're having a great day.

LOL!  This is a very funny post and yes, your title got me to peek at it!  Unfortunately, when I see signs that are funny I never have my camera!  Thanks for the laughs!

Signs are one biggest displays of public oddities. If you travel abroad they're even funnier. I'll post some of the foreign ones one day soon. Engrish sporken hier.

A few years ago a chirocracker around the corner found his sign on Late Night With David Letterman. The doc's version of the sign? "HAPPINESS IS A STRAIGHT SPINE" - the prankster only shifted a couple of letters in the final word. It was up for several days before they completely took it down.

I'm ashamed to say I've seen signs just like that.  Even worse I worked in a grocery store for many years.  One purchase I will never forget is someone bought the economy size of condoms and super sized hot dogs.  What this gentleman was going to do with his purchase I have no idea.  But all I know is I wouldn't want to be there for that sex education lesson.
