From actual court reporter documents in a book called "Disorder in the American Courts":

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?

WITNESS: He said, "Where am I, Cathy?"

ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?

WITNESS: My name is Susan.

My thoughts: Wow! There's a shot in the arm for the old Christmas Spirit... and in the shoulder... probably the neck, back, and legs too.

I had a blast at the Louisiana Book Festival this weekend and wanted to be sure that I could give back to the festival, so here's the deal. For every Kindle copy of my book sold through November 29th, $1 will be donated to the Louisiana Library Foundation. And remember: Carpe the Buffet!!

Public Service Announcement: Bear Safety
Forgive me for the use of the bad word for 'poop' near the end of this sign.

Thursday, October 27, 2011

Does this sign make me sound crotchety?

Good. That's what I was going for...

I didn't know deer went in for kayaking.
I thought they preferred soccer.

You say "potato", I say "Homicide"

Slight error in headline:
Headline read "Stolen groceries" instead of "Homicide" ... yeah, that's an understandable mistake.

I'll be the featured speaker tomorrow at the 2011 Women's Conference in Baton Rouge.

The funny part of this? I don't have a voice right now. Throat is swollen and sore from allergies, so I've restructured this into an "audience participation" event.
Come join us and point at the girl who sounds like a frog. Info at

And under the heading of "missing the point":
Headline: Parents keep kids home to protest school closure.

Thank you to the great folks at Alexandria Sr. High who allowed me to speak at their Honor Roll Breakfast this morning. It was such a kick and I met some great and smart kids. Guess I'll meet them again when I apply to them for a job someday!
Buy the book!

Headline: Man called 911 requesting a hooker
I guess he had a different idea of what an emergency was...

While the Adopt A Street program was going quite nicely,
the companion program "Lynch 4th Graders" was not quite as popular.

Life Vest Under Sea
Somehow I'd find that less than comforting...

I've always loved this
positive way of handling a negative situation:
Unattended children will be given

You'll never to work on time. HaHa! Some days I feel like this is in the fine print of every sign I pass.

The plastic chairs have already invaded the world of novelty tshirts!
I wish our government worked this fast.

Facebook is just rocking today! Saw this today after the Virginia earthquake, which had people saying, "I think the neighbor slammed their Lexus door too hard." Glad they're not going to let this keep them down.
Love this sign I found on Facebook:
If there is someone behind you and no one in front of you, then get out of this lane.

Finally! Help Desk instructions I can understand:
"If the Help Desk thinks your question is stupid,
we will set you on fire."

Remember: If you find yourself in a situation where you have to survive on wild mushrooms, the types of mushrooms you choose may give you very different experiences.

Headline: Hospitals resort to hiring doctors.
They're finding this bold move is working much better than their previous hiring of mimes, who kept getting stuck in those invisible boxes and missing scheduled surgeries.
I really appreciate a school with a sense of humor.
I appreciate even more that school starts earlier in my neck of the woods. Being a middle-aged woman, I just want my malls back...

This sign just made me laugh. And with the summer we've had in Louisiana, it just fits...

Police find amazing new method to catch suspects. Officer yelled "Marco" and the suspect responded, "Polo"! Next week they plan to try "shave and a haircut" knocks and see if those work too.

Hmmmm... Just signed up for Adsense to start actually getting money off advertising on my blog. All the ads they posted on here that are supposedly related to my blog posts are ads for depression treatments. Have I missed something?
Photo: Van hits house. What's funny?
The slogan on the side of the van: The Republican (Newspaper) ... Where the news hits home.
Some people take their slogans much too seriously.

Monday, August 1, 2011

It's funny all by itself, but I can't help it.
When I see this sign, I think of the line in "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?"
where he says, "We thought you was a toad."
I need to get out more.

Sunday, July 31, 2011

I hate my boss.
She gripes at me constantly, pushes me too hard,
and never believes my excuses when I call in sick.
Self-employment's tough.
