We drove up to Riverton to Wal-Mart today to visit their Vision Center so my oldest daughter could have an eye exam. (I told her she was going to have her head examined, but she didn’t want to grant my argument that the eyes are part of the head.) On the front door of the Supercenter was this sign: “Absolutely no returns on Christmas decor items after December 24.”
And that, for me, was the Funny Thing of Today. The image it presents of someone so pathetic that he not only decorates his apartment for the big party with strictly Wal-Mart decor, but he doesn’t even plan to pay for it–he’s that cheap. You can’t make this stuff up.
“Is there a problem with these items, sir?”
“Well, they just don’t fit my apartment decor anymore.” ‘Cause it’s December 26–the Christmas look is so yesterday!
[Note: In the voting for FTT #2, the Wal-Mart sign edged out, but barely, an advertisement on the back of a truck announcing “Coffins for Cowboys and Indians”–hand made and custom designed!]
