Chip Shot: Man survives a bear attack with just a .22 pistol. His friend, who was shot in the knee, was not so lucky.

Chip Shot: The pencil to eraser ratio is way too optimistic.

 

Chip Shot: An hourglass has more moving parts than a complicated wrist watch.

Vintage Ads

 

 

Apparently, his wife and kids had no problem with his having syphilis????

 

 

 

Here’s a kid who know hows to play “doctor!”

 

 

 

Who knew Wonder Bread “Helps Catch Boys?” Feminists would blow a gasket over this.

 

 

 

“How to be a hit with boys!” I can hear the heads of feminists exploding.

 

 

 

“Fills all hollow places, adds beauty, curve and grace to the shoulders and neck. Safe, sure, pleasant.” What is it? I Really don’t know.

Chip Shot: I met a girl the other night who said she’d show me a “good time.” When we got outside, she ran a 40 yard dash in 4.8 seconds.

Chip Shot: Teachers who told us that if we didn’t do well in school, we’d end up garbage collectors, never once mentioned that garbage collectors made more money that they did.

Huh?

1,200 count telephone cable for around 600 buildings, cut to make room for a 48 strand fiber optics cable.

Not Real Ads … But They Should Be

 

(Actually, this may be a real ad.)

 

 

 

A Real Product … But Should it Be?

 

 

Gin made from elephant dung. A new gin is made with botanicals sourced from elephant dung. Launched in South Africa under the brand Ibhu, “Indlovu” means elephant in several African languages. Who would even think to try to make gin like this?

Lazy Product Packaging that Could have Dire Consequences

Do you want Cooking Spray or Furniture Polish?

 

 

Check the label before getting in bed.

Best Billboard of the Month

 

Outstanding ad for a vibrator!

Who Approved the Design?

 

 

Looks like he has an anvil for an “appendage.”

 

 

The same person must have designed the placement of the trigger on this dinosaur water gun.

I think he's had enough.

 

Chip Shot: If scammers would just learn English grammar, we would all be in a lot of trouble.

Chip Shot: I feel like my body’s check engine light has been on and I’ve been thinking, “Nah, it’ll be fine.”

Chip Shot: “I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.” Steve Martin

Whatever they’re paying their lawn service, it’s not enough.

 

 

I’m pretty sure this monkey must be drunk.

 

 

 

A moment of tension … if the bishop moves forward, the queen can take him.

 

 

 

I wonder if the owner pays the pigeons?

 

 

 

This has got to be from Australia, right?

Huh?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alternative Cuss Words

 

 

My favorites are “Jumpin Jehoshaphat!” (Who’s famous for saying that?) “Great Googley Moogley” and “Fartknocker.”

Sorry this week’s blogs have been so lame, but Dale had jury duty and he didn’t have time to help much.

Chip Shot: College is the opposite of kidnapping. They demand $100,000 from you or they’ll send your kid back.

Chip Shot: I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. It’s impossible to put down.

“Thomething Mithing!

 

 

 

 

Clever truck wrap.

What a great idea … if you don’t mind your baby flying around in the car during an accident.

 

 

Fake snow made from asbestos. What could possibly be wrong with that?

Doors?

 

 

 

 

Watch out for that first step.

 

 

 

 

 

How would you get your car in there?

This Ad Will Never Fly

I assume this ad is for a Mariner Watch ... which apparently has interesting power over women. I'm sure this ad won't upset anyone.
