My Easter Vignette

I was driving through a small village near where I live yesterday, Easter day. There's a local burger joint that has one of those moveable marquees in front. They usually advertise their specials.

Now, I live in an area where religion is generally pretty prevalant. This little village happens to not be one. So when I saw the sign in front of the burger joint that announced, "Spread the good news. He lives." I started to chuckle.

All I could think was that someone had food poisoning there and they wanted to let everybody know that all was okay.

Oh, I'm so glad he's OK. Hubby and I both L'ed OL at that one:)

Susie - Glad you both got a chuckle. I sure did. What's even funnier, though, is how your mind reads things incorrectly sometimes. Those are usually way funnier than what's originally written.

April- Thanks for the link. Do people ever think before they put those things up? :-)

That's the kind of recommendations I look for in a restaurant. So, are we on for dinner next time I visit?

Bucky, you and I can hit Burger Crest any time you like. At least they didn't name it Burger Crust.

Dammit, it took so long for Blogger comments to load, I forgot what incredibly witty and funny thing I was going to say.

And trust me, it WAS incredibly witty and abso-fargin-lutely hilarious. I'm sure of it.

Ladybug - If it comes back to you please try commenting again. I think Blogger's getting too big for its britches. It's free and everbody wants to blog.

Aaaaah, Burger Crest. That explains a lot. Slabs o' burger, now with less salmonella!

This isn't really funny, but it bugs me everytime I see it -- There's a little bare-bulb motel close to here, and their sign says, "Goldilocks slept here and said our beds were fine."
I know they meant, "fine," as in luxurious, or what have you, but it just reads weird to me.

Courtney--shouldn't it say "just right"?

Squirl--you've got some funny shoes to fill, what with your famous sister and all. I gotta say, so far, so funny!

Ern - You're right. My sister is really good. I'm going to try. And thanks for the compliment.
