The only permanent press still around.
Somebody misplaced his glasses.

Potato famine.

The blight will get them however you pronounce them.
Idaho or Yukon Gold.

North By Northwest.

Like Hamlet, he is only mad north-northwest.
Next stop, Mount Rushmore.

Penny for your thoughts.

Must have been a Lincoln cent.
Factoring in the rate of inflation...

Step out on the ledge to enjoy the view down.

At least the turkey is having a happy thanksgiving.
It only has to make it past Christmas.

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Bare necessities.

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.
Redundant, redundant, redundant.

For making whoopee. Not to be confused with the pie or the cushion.

Accidents will happen.

Slapstick movies have already been discovered.
But you never know...

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

That's what we do.

Flo would be there for you, too.
It always works in the commercials.
