Stuff you cannot make up [Oct. 21st, 2007|01:04 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

It's election season. The neighbor across the street has a sign in the yard:

City Council at Large

Sometime after midnight, upon returning from a night out with friends, Ferrett and I were standing in the front lawn of the neighbor's house, gaping at the sign.

"It's gotta be some kind of joke," I said.

But I checked this morning, and no. Candidates Long, Furry, and Arabian are actually on the ballot. And they all seem to be real people.

I totally want one of those signs.

Sounds more like varieties of rabbits for sale.

The three of them should team up and make a commercial showing a bunch of sand kittens mewling and rubbing against the sign. That alone would win them a quarter of the vote, if not more...

I want to vote for Furry. We have a judge Furr here, but no furries...

Oh, man, that totally rocks! We don't have cool signs like that! The coolest thing we had was the "shooting range" of signs, amidst them was one advertisement. I asked, "What happens if you shoot the advertisement?"

My sister says "Take a picture!"

I totally agree!

I think Long Arabian Furry would be even funnier.

But that's pretty good.

After looking at the sign again I realized that it is Furry Long Arabian, but am too lazy to change it.

Your way is still best.

See, if we had candidates like that down here, we wouldn't need to have Stephen Colbert running for president to keep SC politics exciting.

Forget a sign. You need a t-shirt.

We had Kevin Smith running for County Clerk. Never saw any good signs I could take a picture of, though.

I read that as:


...just needed to share how weird my subconscious is; weirder that fact.
