It happens more than I care to admit. Lost in thought, watching the ordinary world pass me by. Then, cue the random event, followed by a double-take and an inward chuckle. What sort of random events? I’m glad you asked! Here are a few examples I found particularly amusing.
- A ladder leaning on power lines. Wait, what? Never mind, those are actually cable and phone lines. Safe? Probably not. Then again, I suppose that might explain your next internet outage.
- An ancient vampire-squid named after Joe Biden. Wait, what? Ancient… check! Vampire… that would explain a lot. Squid… maybe! An honor? An insult? Both? I suppose only Joe and the Squid can answer those questions.
- Olive Garden has rotisserie… guinea pig. Wait, what? Sure, they do! Of course, given Ecuador’s lassez-faire approach to trademarks I seriously doubt this Olive Garden has any relation to those in the U.S.
- Krispy Kreme has a donut filled with a Twix bar. Wait, what? I know what you’re thinking: another wasted alliteration opportunity (Kit Kat Krispy Kreme, anyone?)
What double-takes have you done this week?
