MWW: The Oxymoron Festival Is In Town Again

Who's up for another quickie? I thought so.

These signs are not mine, but they are hilarious and I always credit the source, because court is boring.

I was driving the other day and saw a sign for "Upscale Flea Market" which prompted this whole post. I know what it means, but the sign made me giggle.......because: Mature.

This is not an oxymoron, just funny to me. Our friend's dad always used to say: "You're out of control!"

  1. The freezer one cracks me up. I need to put that sign on my freezer when I get home. And my microwave. And random doors throughout the house.

    Not sure how I found you but glad I did.

    1. As long as your toaster and stove are in control, you're good. Just take my word for that one.
      Not sure either, but I'm also glad you did.

  2. An upscale flea market? As opposed to the downscale flea market that I notice on the way to the upscale flea market that downscale people have created because yard sales weren't working anymore?

    And the Drive-Thru Pharmacy window parking . . . I'm going to assume it just like when you go to McD's and you order a meal and then they ask you to park in front to wait for your food because the cheeseburger and fries you asked for overloaded their system. lol

    3. I had a hard time with that sight for anything but a bulletin board of recipes, that I may or may not ever try, but it was FAR more organized than the tons of bookmarks I would make with my internet browsers, which like me, were totally chaotic and unorganized. I like the SHARED blogger boards though, they are great for having ONE PLACE (like a FB group w/out the FB aspect) to look at bloggers you like, and what they've been up and that kind of thing.

    1. "Soak it deep, dip it yummy" sounds like a food porno. That is hilarious, but yet it sounds oddly delicious.

    1. I usually get a good laugh out of them, too, especially the oxymoronic ones. Makes me feel like I'm not the ONLY one who doesn't always proof-read.
