Lighten up Mondays

Happy Labor Day (USA) everyone.

Today’s funny is in the form of a sign that I ran across in my neighborhood the other day.  I couldn’t resist taking a photo of it.

Neighborhood Man Sale
Neighborhood Man Sale

I wonder how many men are for sale at this man sale?

Are they throw-aways or are they in good shape?  For that matter – how much does one cost?

If I buy one, will it take up too much space in my house?

Is it house-trained?

Since I already have one, do I really need another one?

and finally –

I guess this is one way to get rid of your guy – get rid of all of his toys.

No thanks – I’ll keep the one I have; he doesn’t take up too much space, he’s well-trained, and he’s as good as they get!  A very good find.
