Sunday Funnies

Some time ago, a blogger posted something fun they'd found in the local, small-town newspaper's police report.  

I was just reminded of that when I read the following, posted on the local ISP's electronic bulletin board.  I have a feeling that this is a service that NOT all of you would ever need.  Besides, it sounds like a very wink-wink, nudge-nudge horrible pick-up line, "Hey, gorgeous, do you need your culvert steamed?"  Hahahahahahaha!  Ohhh, I kill myself.

Here's the ad:
CULVERT STEAMING - Dave Berntside*
Do you need your culvert steamed?
Call Dave
(218) 555-0000

* A fictitious name, of course.


  1. Do I need my culvert steamed? Gosh, I don't know. It might rank right up there with a good, stiff spring tonic. ;o)

  2. Your blog just keeps getting better. You should write a book, really.
    So sorry to hear about you and Tom, but it sounds like he has a lot of inner conflicts to sort out.

  3. Lizzie . . . you sneaky thing, you! Took me a while to figure out who you are, but I recognized your baby (from his picture on your defunct? blog) and then, reading thru your blog, I put 2 and 4 together and got YOU! ;) I didn't know you were a reader of the blog, tho! I'm so glad you are!

    Yeah, you are no more shocked than I that my plan for Tom's & my life together is not working. :( But, life goes on, right?

    A thanks for the kind words about my writing although, based on what I read over at your blog, YOU are a fantastic writer, Ms. English Teacher. xo
