It was the biggest bugbear of an old English teacher of mine that people would use the word literally as an inaccurate form of exaggeration. I like to think he would have found these following images pretty funny. After all, who knew that maths and cakes could lead to such hilarious interpretation? Which one do you think shows the best imagination or execution? Bonus points if you can guess which one made me chuckle most. If you want to see even more, you can also find other examples at the original article here.
I love the observation about the number 8!
Well you can’t argue with the logic involved haha.
The last one made me cry with laughter!! It was that she chose to call the first one Bob that did it! 🙂
Totally. Reminds me of that kid who was asked in an angles questions to “Find X”. They circled the X and said “There it is”
I’m not sure which one you picked but the drive-through Pharmacy gave me a chuckle
It reminds me of a very funny Everybody Loves Raymond episode when Frank drives right into Ray’s living room. Nice try. Being a journo and a lousy artist the top one made me laugh most.
Gosh darnit! 😉
A (draw) bridge too far 😉
Oh I love it! “Or” way to go kid!
Kids can say the funniestand strangely logical things. One of them once said that: “Genetics is why you look like your parents. And if you don’t, why you should.” Brilliant.
Ha! Yes, that’s just perfect!
Very cute. “Happy Birthday on Both” is my fave. The math kid has to fail. He forgot the signs around ‘or.’
Yeah that double message takes the biscuit. Or rather the cakes 😛
Happy you enjoyed them. They certainly made me chuckle.
The first one I found the funniest!
That was my favourite one too. That’s how bad grammar should always be seized upon. There was once a sign that said: “DVD’s, book’s and CD’s for sale”. Ouch!
My local hairdresser’s window reads:
Mens’ and Lady’s Haircuts
Haha these are all great! The last one is probably my favourite though 🙂
There needs to be one named Michelle. Or Limechelle, Spookchelle or Snowchelle. Or Skychelle if you’re looking for a new one.
Oh I like Skychelle haha 🙂
I’m claiming royalties if you use it as your popstar name or writing alter ego 🙂
Haha of course! Skychelle does sound like a great popstar name. Such a shame I can’t sing or dance.
I can’t either, don’t worry 🙂
My favourite: alf+a+mile&oq=Humps+&gs_l=img.1.8.0l10.2717.7467.0.153184.108.40.206.0.0.0.119.575.5j1.6.0….0…1ac.1.64.img..0.6.574.wrauo6IfDqI
Not showing up. Which one do you mean?
Sorry. Try this one: http://www.imagesource.com/stock-image/Humps-For-Half-Mile-Sign-IS099WS5B.html
As soon as I saw them, they had to go up 🙂
Oh man, this is fantastic! I would have guessed that the ‘Hug left curb when leaving’ pic was your favorite but upon seeing some of the comments I guess I was a tad off! That one was definitely mine. So great.
That picture totally looks like its part of a drinking story doesn’t it?
😂😂 I love the ones with the cakes but I lost it at the last one! 😂 Still can’t stop laughing!!
You have to love the way kids think.
Love all of these, Alex!
I knew you would. I hope that wasn’t you driving through the pharmacy 😉
I was nowhere near that pharmacy!
Hahahahaha! These are great!
The lettering in the cake for the seventh one isn’t even in purple!
The guy hugging the curb is the funniest IMO but also love the drive thru pharmacy 🙂
I knew you’d love them 🤗
OMG!!! Thanks for the chuckle Alex, these are hilarious!! Seriously people!! The birthday cake ones are just the best, ‘Happy Birthday on Both’ mwahahahaha!!!
You’d think it would be easy. A piece of cake(s) as it were 😉
