For some reason, there’s a lot of reading required for this week’s crop.

    Which one is the funny one?

  2. dragonfire81 says:

    That top one is somewhat phallic…

  3. unobservant says:

    Sheesh. I can’t believe that the person who posted these pictures didn’t notice the OBVIOUS SPELLING MISTAKE in the television graffiti photo. What is this world coming to?

    Oh… I thought it was Pedantic Friday. My bad. ;)

      @unobservant: Reminds me of the one time I was visiting Germany and at a train station someone(s) had climbed across the tracks and up a wall – at what I suspect was great difficulty – to graffiti in giant letters a swear phrase. A swear phrase in english, to be specific, as I imagine that seemed to be the “cooler” approach.

      I wish I’d had a camera to take a picture of it – that giant, 6 foot tall spray-painted graffiti in the nearly impossible to reach but so easy to read spot that read, simply:

      “FACK YOU”

    So what does the last one have to do with anything consumer related. It is just a stupid action figure and a stupid cat.

    Here are six better ones:

  5. Jonbo298 says:

    I foresee (forsee?) the Newspaper one being used quite frequently in the coming year(s)

  6. Canino says:

    Celebrate with us the birth of our savior*

    *NOTE – our savior is a double/double combo, large sized with a Dr Pepper.

  7. Wubbytoes says:

    Wow, those are some international gummy bears.

    • Radi0logy says:

      @Wubbytoes: Thats actually really smart. Every food company should just write “Product of a country on planet earth”, then they don’t have to have responsibility for it. smart.

    • bluewyvern says:

      @Wubbytoes: It’s inspiring when gummi bears of every hue and creed and flavor can learn to stick together…

    My workplace’s vending machine says “Praise the Lord!” No word yet on how many successful conversions have occurred as the result of a Doritos craving.

    I love those gummies, though.

    • bluewyvern says:

      @lalaland13: At your workplace? Unless you work for some religiously-affiliated organization, that doesn’t sound too, well, kosher.

  9. desertdust says:

    The gummy thingy’s are made on this planet. Maybe.

  10. CaffiendCA says:

    I could immediately smell that popcycle when I saw that picture. I probaby haven’t eaten one of those in 10 years!

  11. Murph1908 says:

    The cat one is great, on many levels.

    The cold, dark, shark-like dead eyes of the cat.

    The sorrowful, defeated look of the monkey as he stands on the precipice that will be his doom.

    All within a moment of the fatal strike.

  12. geoffhazel says:

    anyone ever notice how many manhole covers are made in India?

  13. Laura Northrup says:

    @Alex Chasick: Like anything ever stopped us from using cat pictures in a post.

    • HelloSailor_GitEmSteveDave says:

      @Laura Northrup: You can’t use a cat picture willy-nilly. It needs context. It’s like when you make a stew in a croc pot. You can’t just throw anything in there:.

      So I think it’s time we cleaned up this thread!

  14. Andrew Dorsett says:

    Love the cat one until i saw the hand holding the cat. Sorta lost the magic of it, though it’s still cute.

  15. MooseOfReason says:

    Chris, How come there’s no poll?

  16. barb95 says:

    I love the gummi bears! They look so sad to not know where they came from. From US or Mexico or Brazil or. . . .
