Chip Shot: Four things you don’t want to hear coming from the next bathroom stall. 1.” I told the waiter, no peanuts. I told the waiter, no peanuts!” 2. “Another pair of wingtips, ruined.” 3. “No, no. You caught me at a perfect time. Let’s do the mortgage application by phone.” 4. “Oh, man … pants off first, then sit down! Stupid! Stupid!”

 

Every Parent of a Twentysomething, Will LOL at This

 

 

Okay, if you’re an empty nester with a kid out there trying to survive on their own, you’ll laugh at this ad for a new book, Quarter Life Poetry, due out in April. I don’t really care about the book, but the ad nails how twentysomethings try to be amusingly independent.

Signs

During our recent trip to Bonita Springs, FL, Leslie spotted this retail established.

Following are two other interesting retail names that I had in the files.

Chip Shot: If a seeing eye dog poops, who cleans it up? 

SAUSAGE PARTY - OFFICIAL RESTRICTED MOVIE TRAILER IS SO FUNNY IT WILL $@&% YOU UP (NSFW)

 

 

This is definitely NSFW but it will make most people lol. Sausage Party is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store. The trailer is really funny … if you’re into using four-letter words. The film is by Seth Rogers … so it’s funny in a sick way.

The film features the vocal talents of a who’s who of today’s comedy stars – Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.

No Sense in Aiming Too High

Vintage Ad

Let me tell you something about that “Horizontal opening,” … it doesn’t work. He won’t “love them.”

Seriously?

 

A 4 inch “Shacker.” I could think of a lot of lines that are funnier than the one used in this ad.

Chip Shot: You know you have a drinking problem when the bartender knows your name … and you’ve never been in the place before.

 

In Honor of the Spring Golfing Season in the Midwest

 

 

 

Here is a compilation of 10 funny golf-related commercials. My favorite is the e-Trade baby and his famous “Shankapotomus” line. Of course, you can’t beat the tried and true “crotch shots” for lol entertainment. And Calloway’s “Want to go again?” is also rather hilarious … to men.

Vintage Poster is Still Up to Date

 

This Superman poster from the 50’s is still relevant today … maybe more relevant considering the increased emphasis schools are putting on anti-bullying campaigns. (Thanks to Ryan C. for sharing this.)

If You’ve Never Failed, You’ve Never Tried Anything New

 

 

Proof that successful people experience and deal with failure.  This has more than 3 million views on YouTube. It’s worth the time to watch.

 

Talent Espana

 

 

I usually don’t post things from talent shows, but this one is worth watching past the 1:20 mark … especially if you like AC/DC. Nearly 3 million views on Youtube.
