  1. Smiling rather a lot here. Thank you. I am pretty sure that the market for validated parking tickets is big, and growing all the time.

  2. These are so funny. My silver spoon turned out to be one of those little wooden paddles you get with a dixie cup. Useful from either end.

  3. I had to smile at all of these, it's funny how sometimes the knockoff is so suttle that simply misspelling the name is the only difference.

  4. NYC is famous for sidewalk bargains. Some is stuff that fell off the truck, 99% is crap. My boss used to brag about his $10 Rodex watch. He stopped wearing it when he said he saw it being eyed suspiciously on the subway and didn't want to get his head bashed in over a $10 watch.

    1. I was wearing a pair of $5 rhinestone earrings when I went into a men's store to pick up something for Bud. The manager told me it wasn't safe to wear such expensive stuff in that neighborhood!!

  5. Smiled all the way through. Strange alterations. I guess the misspellings or name altering keeps them from being sued? Looks like some to the stuff I see in the dollar store.

  6. I've seen that sign--genuine fake watches--in several countries, including Thailand and India.

  7. This reminds me of growing up. Mom never bought the real cereal. Instead of Lucky Chamrs cereal, we got “Marshmallow Mateys” or instead of Cherrios, we got “Toastyos”.
    We never knew the difference except not having a prize in the box.

  8. Heh, heh! The Arm and Hatchet, the Skerple, and the kinda-butters were my favorites. Once they've had a few, I'm pretty sure nobody's gonna notice that Johns Daphne Tenderness Whiskey is fake.

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
