A funny from the past

For anyone who ever wondered about the strange sense of humor that Mt. Cat and I seem to share here is a quick story he reminded me of last week. I bet none of you guys find this nearly as funny as we did...
Years ago before we were roommates we were headed out to the store together to get some things before going to a party. (which is a story in unto itself - Ya'll will have to remind me sometime to tell the story of "Julie's cat") We went to a Bi-Lo over off of Albemarle Road in Charlotte for supplies. After we had checked out when we were leaving the store there was a Coke machine with a sign on it to indicate that it was out of order. Instead of saying that it simply said "B-R-O-K-E" I pointed the sign out to Vin who started laughing so hard that he was about to fall over. I said something like, "Awwww, poor little Coke machine is out of money and it's broke. Maybe we should give him some money to help feed his family since he is so broke. " As if it were panhandling on the side of the street. We howled with laughter. At the time it was one of the funniest things ever. I wish we had digital cameras back then to grab a picture for posterity. It's still funny to this day the mental image of the Coke machine with the sign saying "Broke" on it and all I have to do is say, "It was broke" to Vin and he knows exactly what I am talking about.

See I told you all that Vin and I share a have really odd sense of humor. Does anyone else find that funny or should we be committed?

And Doc remember I called you a few years ago when I was down near Wall Street in Manhattan and I saw a huge sign above the door of a photo shop that said 'WE OPEN'.
I could not stop laughing at that one either. I guess there was no space to print 'WE ARE OPEN' so they opted for the Ebonics version instead.

Doc said...

Yeah... for some reason I find stuff like that laugh out loud funny!

(maybe we are the only ones)

Guys--I find both of those humorous also. And, since I'm a very visual person I can actually see that.

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, I will write the story about Julie's Cat. As soon as I get my nasal passage back. I no feel good. :...(

How could you possibly think you guys are any different than any one of us?
Do you think we would come here because we thought you were funny, that you thought some things were funny that you weren't sure were funny?

As American as Apple Pie said...

Awww...poor MtCat. He no feel so good.

Take a Claritin and put on your man pants.

Doc said...

Vin - Julie's cat is one of our best stories, I am sure you will do it justice... HA!

Apple - you tell him, he has been slacking - jury duty yesterday and sick today... I even had to put up with a DWTS post since he was slacking... (just kidding)

Leighann said...

Doc said...

Thanks for that website Leighann... I just got a "WEBSITE BLOCKED FOR CONTENT WARNING" on my computer...

Doc said...

Leighann said...

I'll have to check that website out on my home 'puter. Of course, that's if I can get the damn thing to stop crashing everytime I open the net. I had the darnest time last night and there was something on there I really wanted to get off. ;-)~

Doc said...

- Sounds like more than a computer problem to me... ROFL!

Jahooni said...

boys will be boys, right?
Commit Them or Off with Their Heads I say!

(Actually when I first starting reading the post and it said this is a story of US and then I read the word Broke, well do you really want to know what I thought? ;)~)

As American as Apple Pie said...

That's for me to know....ahh, yeah.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Jahooni--ROFLMAO!!! Maybe there is more to the story than they are telling us. They DID use to be roommates.

Doc said...

Jahooni - Uhhhhhhh NO !

Apple - EEEEEEWWWWWW !

Karen said...

Too funny. Ebonics is just as good as English these days.

Jahooni - you might be on to something here....

Tink said...

I know I would have laughed if I'd been there. But being told about it now isn't nearly as funny. Don't all good friendships start out with a funny story? They should.

Lu' said...

Karen: Nothing is as good as english although isn't ebonics going to be our primary language come November?

Becky said...

That was pretty damn funny. I'm a bit sick right now, so it took me a minute to get it (shut up! NORMALLY I HAVE A FUNCTIONING BRAIN STEM.)

Jay said...

The machine was probably working fine. Some bum just left his sign there while he went around behind the building to pee.

The Mountain Cat said...

Jay that is hilarious!

Bina said...

That is hilarious! Something that Beth and I would probably laugh so hard we would almost pee. We laughed at the weirdest things.
