Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.



After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.



Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.



Sometimes no caption is necessary.



But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.



I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.



This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.



You should pay attention to obstacles that could potentially block your sign.  On the other hand, 3 hoes for $20 is a fantastic deal.  Normally they are closer to $40.  I wonder what "more" gets you.  Do I want to know?



Apparently Wal-Mart is getting ready for their gigantic 0% off sale.  The guy who just dropped the first digit on the ground looks rather frustrated.



I've heard of foreign companies that use pictures stolen from Facebook in their advertising, but don't you think somebody would have chosen a profile other than Mark Zuckerberg?



This is so wong.  It's just not wight to make fun of Chinese people and the way they twalk in ingwish.



Damn it.  I wish they were having this sale when I got my twins.  I could have had quints!



Some times it's not the advertisement, it's just the unfortunate placement.



Another example of unfortunate placement...



...and another.



I hate when I can't come up with the proper name for an exotic fruit!



Damn it.  I just got grandma a bath yesterday and it was more than $25!



After shopping all day, I only had $3.95 left.  Thank God I qualified for financial aid.



Happy Friday, and enjoy spending your gift cards at these fine establishments.

The Worst Part of Being Disabled

The central character of my novel is a wheelchair user. I know that's no big surprise. It's important to me, however, that I'm able to relate the experience of severe disability to a universal audience. I want to make sure the character expresses his worldview in a powerful way. For example, you can close your eyes, but that doesn't help you truly understand blindness. Every so often I hear about some sociology professor who gives everyone a disability for a day. People come up to me and tell me how they learned to understand my limitations and frustrations because they borrowed a wheelchair and went to the mall.  If they want to understand my frustrations, they should borrow a wheelchair and go to a job interview. Whether you have been disabled your entire life, or spent your life in perfect physical condition, I want to get your perceptions on true disability. What do you feel is the worst part about being disabled? Please be very specific. You can choose any disabil

Personal Space: an invisible disability

The worst part about being disabled for me may surprise you.  In a previous post I invited you to share your thoughts about disability. (See:   The Worst Part of Being Disabled ) I face numerous frustrating challenges on a daily basis. I'm constantly dependent on others. I need help bathing and dressing. I can't drive, cook, hold a book or feed myself. I rely on family, employees, technology and the goodwill of others. Some days it's frustrating, but I've learned through experience how to manage all this help. Other frustrations are attitudinal barriers. Today I live very comfortably and have a high family income. I'm an entrepreneur, but not because of my unquenchable desire to build businesses, but because very few companies would be willing to give me a job. I made the decision more than 15 years ago that I could build a business easier than I could find a job, so that's what I did. My single biggest frustration however isn't getting the help I need or ov

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species , was shot and killed by zoo personnel. A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media. Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse. It’s the mother’s fault! I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment.  Parents, however, understand. We’v
