Chevrolay

I have so much to blog that I can't blog it. Oh, the photos, the prolific, life-changing prose, it's all up here, folks ::taps on temple::

Alas. Today, you get drivel.

I was on my way to work last week, still waking up, when I realized that I was on "E". Better late to work than to run out of gas, yes? I pulled into the gas station, and was sleepily filling up the tank, when I spotted this:



Not having had my caffeine fix yet, the first thought that came to my mind was:

?

Hey, I'm not a morning person. I did have the presence of mind, though, to grab my camera.

I showed Clint the pic that night, while he was shaving. "Ha, ha, ha!" he laughed. "That's funny."

It is? Why? He tried to explain it to me: "See, they took the '-let' off, and added '-lay'. Chevro-LAY."

"Yeah."

"Well, that's funny."

I don't get it. That's not funny. This is funny: What do you call a fish with no eyes?

What?

Fsh.

Ok, go back and read that joke outloud, it will be a lot funnier.

After you've had your coffee.




When I promised drivel, I deliver drivel.

  2. "took the let off and added lay?" Didn't they take the et off and add ay? Whatever they did, I like it and I don't even know why.

  7. You promise and you do deliver Lori ..Haha!

    Actually, I like it. The spelling stands true to how you pronounce.

    I'll definitely prefer nife-nee-sine-onor istead of Knife-Knee-Sign-Honor ;-)

  10. It's GREAT!

    You write it so perfectly - I can actually hear Clint saying: "that's funny."

    And I think Jim has a good question - I was thinking about Frito-Let, too!

  11. That's almost better than the Toyota truck that said simply "YO".

  12. Hmph! Fine! I guess "Chevrolay" is funnier than "Fsh". I concede.

    Jim, I work right next to Frito-Let in Champaign; they've never given me one lousy Frito in 22 years.

    And King...Now I MUST go peek into the bed of that truck. I'll have to start stalking that gas station. I'll get back to you!
