Bremen Saki

It's a tube of yogurt.

It bothers me.


Septic tank cleaning service trucks back home that have the slogan, "WE'RE #1 IN A #2 BUSINESS!" There are more of them rolling around than can be individually named.

Bonus points if the truck's tank also has a cartoon picture that looks like it was drawn in the 50s, of a little childlike man smiling and tipping his cap to the viewer while putting a hose down into a septic tank hole.


There was some carpet company where I lived before, their slogan was "We're #2 so we try harder!"

Which is a weird slogan, because you'd think if they tried sufficiently hard they'd be #1 right? Or maybe they're just inept or whatever. I just think advertising that you're #2 is pretty lame.


KFC have "salt your own fries" printed on their packaging, which sounds to me like they can't be bothered to do it themselves. "Have it your way" also sounds dismissive, i.e. "ugh, fine, have it your way".


There's a scaffolding company round these parts who's slogan is "Quality Erections!"

I get a chortle.


There used to be a law office in my town.

The sign they had out front?

"Gay and Gay Attorneys"
"Parking in rear"

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
