Things Strategically Placed

Have you  ever bought something and started to read the ingredients, or the directions and the price sticker was right where you wanted to read something?  I got a funny e-mail that represents my thinking, what about ‘Cooking for your Dog?’ The only thing missing here is Spunky sitting there while Lucy cooks!

Then there is the nasty word that got Imus kicked off the air:

Now it isn’t so bad when they peel off easily but some of these are meant not to be removed, I hear there are unscrupulous people who will change price tags or bar codes.

I also wanted to show you probably the last picture that was ever made of this guy! This is serious, I hope it was a trick photo, otherwise there is new meaning when mama ain’t happy:

His last picture 

I thought some of these sticker mistakes were better than the e-mails of the  WalMart dress codes.

They do get worse, but first a 1957 Buick Roadmaster, they didn’t get much better:

Not being nasty, but there was a time that mama’s did put urine in ears for ear ache, maybe this was an OLD PERSON fixing the package.

And there was the Article about:

Most of us have read MOBY DICK:

We all know of the photo’s taken of Adam & Eve for publication had strategically placed leaves or bushes:

So shall we all Sin or Sing together? ‘Y’’s Granddaughter has been singing to her. Funny how dropping a letter or covering one changes a lot of meaning.

Thanks for stopping by the Log, I hope you can read perfectly all the ingredients and instructions required this Christmas season!!!

ROFL. All those COVERED up letters made for some funny products. Where do you find this stuff, Jack? Also LOVE the quote, "The richest man is not he who has the most, but he who needs the least." Take care.

Jack, that is so funny. As for Lucy cooking and Spunky waiting for me to drop something, He has decided to sit in the kitchen door when I am in there. I think he things the kitchen is his own private food chain.

I love all the pictures and you do have me laughing now. Just spent the day out doing some shopping with my sisters and have decided to spend the rest of the evening resting...and now smiling too. Hope your all have a great evening!

I thought they were funny....Love the one
cooking for your dog with sticker in wrong place. Lucy cooks for Spunky. I wonder how long it took for this person to collect all the things
with the Sticker in the wrong place.

I've had this happen to me too, but never quite as humorously as this. ~Mary

I got a kick out of your game of 'tags'...funny stuff, but then there is you, funny man!
You were mentioned at our Christmas when Syrus opened his gift from his cousin. It was a box full of 50-some magic tricks...he says to me, "Now I can teach Magic Jack a few tricks." Your humor is much appreciated, Magic Jack~~~
