Misreading the signs (6)

(Mis-)Spotted earlier:

Free Poignancy Test Available Here

- and one I recall from a few weeks ago,

Working To Save The Livers Of The Elderly

(for those who have found my blog only recently, these are examples of the many times when I glance in passing at adverts, posters, signs, headlines and so on, and somehow manage to misread them and give them a rather different meaning).

In other news, I bought a bunch of bananas along with the rest of my groceries the other day. Can I find them?

(sorry for shouting)

You'd be amazed what you can lose. Don't worry, in a few days you WILL find them, if not before.

You better find them soon. Those bananas rot easily.

You made me smile tonight. It's been an incredibly rough day. The thought of someone losing their bananas...hee hee

Oh I want a poignancy test. Wouldn't that be nice to check out gently whether we were poignant or not. Could be used particularly well with angry young men, to show them there is a future without rage. And they could all be given badges with sweet little kittens on saying I'm on my way to being poignant.
I could go on and on but.....

Haven't found them yet, Zhoen and lakeviewer. I'm puzzled as much as I'm annoyed. I even had to go and buy some replacement bananas to make up for the deficit.

Sophia, sorry to hear you had a rough day, but glad I made you smile :)

FB, the kitten badges are a fantastic idea!
