A tempting offer

I like this offer better from Molly’s Cupcake cafe in Chicago:

Not sure how many have taken them up on it.

I recently ran across someone whose eyes will start rolling out of her sockets at these.

What does Heather Schwedel know? “Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to dis a brie” is freaking comedy gold. She probably gets all huffy about people saying “have a nice day” as well.

So apparently the crux of the message here is, “Don’t tell jokes I don’t like.” Reminds me of when I worked in a kitchen and we had a whiteboard we never used, so I started putting up a random fact of the day. Usually something food-related, like “DID YOU KNOW: Due to their high potassium-40 content, bananas are slightly radioactive?” Never anything remotely offensive. My boss would look forward to seeing it, but then my daily messages started disappearing. Turns out someone decided to get a bug up her butt about it and was erasing it when I wasn’t looking. No one could think of a reason why, but she was already bossy, did weird things to make people’s job harder, and was an all-around asshole. I instantly imagined that she wrote that article as I read it. She was a major reason I and a few others left that job.

I like how she says “aggressively unnecessary” in the article unironically.

Whenever someone mentions a Fast and Furious movie with a number after it, I immediately say “Fast 40 Furious: Aggressively Unnecessary”

I’m just tickled that someone struck upon that phrase too. Although I don’t go around writing articles about how awful the Fast and Furious franchise is and that movies these days are so shitty. I just say it in a comment every now and then.

Reminds me of one of the mile markers along the Ragnar Relay course from Madison to Chicago:

I kind of like the one featured in this post, but every one of the examples in that article annoys the living fuck out of me. Luckily, unlike the author, I see a sidewalk chalkboard maybe once a month tops, so it’s not exactly life-ruining.

I think bartenders make the best signs.


#12

I used to work across the street from “The Wurst Place” in South Lake Union, Seattle. They have AMAZING Elk brats that were practically transcendental. But they have a decent and informative street sign too:


#13

So now I’m wondering if the Cory doppelganger I saw walking down Whitecross St on Friday was, in fact, @doctorow

Can we swap food stall recommendations now? The gallete stall opposite Fix is amazing!


#14

I love these.

There’s a few around town that I thought of snapping a pic of. Now I know I should to offset the aggressively unnecessary killjoys.


#15

Do not understand the Fireball craze. Way to take the best beverage in the world (whiskey) and ruin it by turning it into yellow Listerine (The worst Listerine in the world.)


#16

Did they pilfer the Monarch’s insignia or the other way around?

(or is it just one of those cases in which you can only do a modernized line art butterfly in so many variants…?)


#17

Oh great I am never going to see the Ragnar logo as a helmet ever again.


#18

Ha ha! I totally did not see a helmet, and honestly didn’t think “Why the hell would something called “ragnar” have a butterfly for a logo?”


#19

Reminds me of the “Buy one get one” offers.

The sidewalk sign for the kombucha place in my neighborhood says, “Our brewmaster is a unicorn. Our signmaker is a liar. Have a kombucha.”
