Googling Beckett

Googling Beckett

Sometimes a random typing error can make my whole day.
I meant to enter the snippet of text I can’t go on, I’ll go on. How did poop become Google’s (sole!) suggestion for the letter p? Did someone really search for this? If so, somewhere there is a constipated English major waiting for an answer that will never come. Which is so Beckett.
Duct Tape FAIL Magick Sandwich

Magick Sandwich FAIL

Magick Sandwich has been on an unannounced (and unintended) hiatus while I’ve been working on a new project, a t-shirt directory called Greatest Tees on Earth. It’s been fun and time-consuming. I hope you’ll pardon my absence and enjoy these much more amusing examples of failure to communicate.

Duct Tape FAIL Magick Sandwich

Duct Tape FAIL

Normally, I dislike the profligate use of FAIL. It inflames my inner English major. But I can’t think of a better description for this duct-taped attempt at urban renewal. Of course, the sign is still operational, so I guess it’s also a duct tape SUCCESS.

No Flyers door magick sandwich

No Flyers FAIL

At least the circulars and flyers don’t cover the sign that says, “PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE CIRCULARS AND FLYERS.” That would be rude.

Troubled Relationship greeting card

Love FAIL

Greeting cards are so audacious in their specificity, aren’t they?  I would argue that if you’re searching for a way to save your troubled relationship in your local Walgreen’s Hallmark section, you’ve already lost.

Grassiti Magick Sandwich

Lawn FAIL

Why spend valuable time maintaining your lawn and neighborhood property values when you can follow this homeowner’s example, grab a can of paint and spray on a little grassiti? This yard is ready for a fresh coat. (Why not go neon for a refreshing change of pace?)

Warren Inn historic marker

Historic Preservation FAIL

I don’t know who decided that “the first motel ever converted from a movie theater and located in a small community” should be declared a historic site. That town meeting must have been a hoot. Lincoln never slept here…but you can!
