I really do know how to read

You know, sometimes you read something wrong and it just ends up being funny. Well, yesterday I was in line at the grocery store. There was quite a wait so I glanced over at the magazine rack. Part of the wire rack was covering the middle of Jessica Alba's name. Do you think my brain saw Jessica Alba? Heck no, it read it as Jessica Labia.

I had a good private laugh over that one. Then,still waiting, I checked out another magazine. There was a picture of Brittany Spears leaning over with some loose tube top on. The caption was SAG Awards; Brittany Boogies. Sorry, my brain read it as Sag award, Brittany's boobies.

Either I need more sleep or I need to stop reading the magazines at the checkout lines.

LOL...that's freakin' funny. I wonder if she answers to "Jessica Labia".

Jim, perhaps she does with a swear word or two. :-)

Mr B, maybe I was channeling you when I misread that magazine.

Ladybug, didn't you know? I'm the classy sister. Wait, I'll blame it on being with Bucky all weekend, yeah, that's it. I hope she's too busy to read this.

Finally, real proof that your Buckys sister.

Jess, so now there should be no doubt in anyone's mind. :-)

Wait, am I topping off my pedestal here? Bucky, what're you saying?

NOW who's the classy sister?

jessica labia-lol squirl. i blame the lighting,yeah,thats it-bad lighting, and bad placement of the wire rack.
my boyfriend is notorious for reading the first 2-leters and making up the rest of the word. except with him, he's totally off, all the time. at least yours was somewhat similar to the real word. you're funny :D

Reading tabloid headlines is Z and my favorite entertainment while standing in line. If YOU were writing the headlines, it would be even more entertaining!

Blogaholic, yeah that's it. Bad lighting and the darned wire rack. Thanks!

tshsmom, I would love to write those tabloid headlines. Can you imagine if Bucky and I went into the tabloid business?

I'd even BUY one if you two did the writing. LOL

Definitely signs of sleep deprivation combined with acute Bucky exposure. The two may be related. Oh, and the two sisters may also be related!

tshsmom, maybe Bucky and I have found our calling.

Eclectic, I must still be sleep deprived. Today I was told about a new product that I need to buy at work. They've been buying from a company called Graybar. I would rather use a different vendor. I thought to myself, "I don't HAVE to get it from gay bar," and proceeded to have a nice quiet chuckle at my desk. Yes, that was totally by accident. I need to check my biorythms. I think my intelligence level has bottomed out. And, yes, Bucky and I are definitely sisters. I like that, acute Bucky exposure.

Lawbrat, a lot of us are up for the old sag award. tee hee

SS Nick, Freudian slips, eh? You sleep well, too. Thanks!

Sleep well, Squirl. I have done the same thing—well, not the exact some thing—when reading. However, Freud explained it so I understand.

Oh Squirl, you crack me up!


No, it's ok. You don't need any sleep. I do it too. A Lot.


I like the "Sag awards, Brit's Boobs"

That's classic.

It really is.

Oh, and I just LOVE how the "Screen Actors' Guild" went with SCREEN and not FILM to avoid the FAG acronym. ahahahahahahahaha

But honestly, how much better is SAG?

Oh I am thinking ~ next time I am waiting in line, I am going to play the Squirl's word game. Acute Bucky exposure . .. You know Eclectic you can take that in many different directions. Could be A cute Bucky!

Amber, I knew other people read stuff wrong, too. It can actually be quite entertaining. And you're right, sag - fag, neither word is usually meant as complimentary.

Nina, these things don't happen on purpose, but they really crack me up when they do. A cute Bucky exposure. I think I like that. :-)

JDR, I was wondering when someone would finally notice. :-)

Kranki, I think the funniest part is that it happens by accident. It doesn't surprise me that you do that, too. But it is fun.

Effie, sure, come on in. There's plenty of room.

And my word verification is yppsa - Your (pretty) packaging sucks (ass)?

My family does that all the time.
Once, my Dad picked up a cookbook and said,"What do veterarians know about cookbooks? Is it for the ones that don't make it?"
It was a vegetarian cookbook.

damn, lawbrat beat me to it! And I thought for sure it would be Bucky: Britney's boobies can't win the SAG award, because mine do!

Squirl, this seeing boobies and labia where they ain't . . . are you trying to tell us something?

Sat Feb 11, 06:25:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

MD, that's a good one. Maybe vets over in Korea write cookbooks. Sorry, that was really wrong.

Susie, as I said to Lawbrat, a lot of us are up for the sag award. Susie, if I'm trying to tell you something from this then you'll have to tell me what that is. You're the shrink. I just read things wrong and get a good laugh out of it. Just today I saw the title "The Big Wrench" and thougt wrench was wench. *sigh*

I agreed with JRabbit when I first saw 'clitnub', but now you've proved it.

But I'm sure I'm not the only one who would buy a magazine just because it said "Jessica Labia" on it, that girl is HOT!

clitnub and labia. What's my blog coming to. :-)
