BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

things that make you go hmmmmm

  Okay, I am touring a broadway show.  Really.  But for those of you who may be under the impression that it is glamorous all the time, you need to read this marquee that is outside our current theatre in San Diego:

Yep, that's right, folks--we thanked Corky's Pest Control in bold black and white, for all the world to see.  Does anybody else think this is funny?

Okay, and then Drew and I were driving home and passed this billboard--and I just had to capture the image:

    I don't know if it is serious, but well, it's funny.  I mean, I guess they aren't saying that it is the best way to tell someone you have an STD--just an easy way.  Can't really argue with it, then, huh?

   Oh, and this might be the most disturbing thing of all.  I found it in this adorable studio apartment Drew and I are staying in here in Ocean Beach.  Really, the whole place is cute as a button, but then you get into the bathroom and notice this:
   I know, looks fine at first--that's what I thought, too.  But upon closer inspection, I realized that the toilet paper dispenser was not so status quo:
Which is when I finally had to just remove the toilet paper and see what was really holding it up.  Ugh.  It's disgusting, just a long finger coming out of a door holding up some toilet paper.  It really made my stomach turn when I saw it.  Thank God the owner limited using isolated appendages in her decorating scheme to just the toilet paper dispenser...
  Anyway, I thought these things were funny/weird/ disturbing--so I had to share:-)

I have a friend who is really into hands. I don't know if she still does this, but she has had hands of all kinds throughout her house as decorative elements. She has a giant plastic hand which is actually a chair...you sit in the palm of a huge plastic hand cradling your bottom!

haha--that's so weird, Kathie! But, to each his own, right?

Too true, there is no accounting for taste!

The finger thing really made my stomach sick, too. It was a physical reaction. It just seems creepy. Why? Gross. But the Corky's pest control thing...now that was just funny. Generally, the name Corky just makes me laugh (sorry to all Corkies of the world who want to be taken seriously). Glad that you and Drew are together again!

I know--the name Corkey makes me laugh, too!

plus, it makes me think about Corkey Sinclair from Waiting for Guffman, which only continues the ridiculousness...

And I am glad I am not the only one who reacted to the finger--it's really really gross. But, every time I go to the bathroom, I look at it-I can't help myself!

Hank Baskett said...

oops--despite the fact that it says Hank Baskett, it was me, Jess:/

You should be happy it is just a finger. In a bathroom I don't want to think what other appendage it could be!

Jessica Latshaw said...

I guess you're right!

speaking of christopher guest, if you've never seen "this is spinal tap," your markee reminds me of a scene from that movie that reads "puppet show and spinal tap." Then the manager discusses how humiliating that spinal tap isn't billed first. I guess the fact that corkey's pest control is underneath a chorus line can be viewed as a sign of respect. still laughing though.

I don't know what this says about me, but the finger made me laugh really hard too. something about the element of surprise. it is just creepy. kind of like having a large photo of people looking right at you in the bathroom while your sitting, taking care of business.
