Funny Pictures: Trees Eat!

With all of the intense weather, volcanoes, etc. we really don’t need any more proof about the power of nature. Mother nature does what she does sometimes in spite of the efforts of mankind.

One example of this is the behavior of trees. I have seen examples of this when I have been hiking, but I haven’t seen any as extreme as the one pictured below.



A tree face created by nature’s indomitable will!

SignEdge: Feeling Tipsy?



Feeling Tipsy – Tip Jar at a local sports bar

What makes this sign rather “different” is that it serves as a double entendre since the picture was taken at our local Tailgaters Il Primo sports bar/eatery. Do you get the double entendre? I hope so because I think it is quirky!

SignEdge: A Race Even I Could Win – Non Marathon

I know you have seen them. They sometimes have 26.2 on them or perhaps only 13.1. They are car window decals espousing participation in, or at least an interest in or passion for, a marathon or half-marathon.

Well…the other day I came across a race that a septuagenarian like me has the potential to win. I think even I have a realistic chance at this one! What do you think?



Car Decal Non-Marathon

If you want one for your car, you can purchase one HERE or a variation on the theme HERE.

Words Worth: Paraprosdokians – 20170724

I must admit that I am a punster. I enjoy a good pun and perhaps even a not-so-good pun and I am often the originator of puns much to the groans of my friends and relatives.

Since I find word play interesting and entertaining, I thought I would bring JBRish readers a few Paraprosdokians to “enjoy.”

A paraprosdokian is a form wordplay or literary device. It is a phrase or sentence that ends in an unexpected way which causes readers to reinterpret the opening phrase or sentence of a text. Often, it is used to create comic effect. Some paraprosdokians change the meaning of an initial phrase, and play on the double meanings of the words.

Simply put, a paraprosdokian is a linguistic U-turn that results in humor or surprise.

Today’s Paraprosdokians

 

  • Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool, so I gave him a bottle of water.

  • Take my advice — I’m not using it.
  •  

  • Hospitality is the art of making guests feel like they’re at home when you wish they were.
