Be Careful How You Word Your Ad...

I was surfing through a popular arts and crafts site ...
Looking at the different art supplies being offered.
The search category I chose was  "Assemblage Art Supplies".
(This wording is important!)
I was amazed at the variety of stuff being sold ...

Then I came across this ad ... which had been thumbnailed and shortened by the listing site.

And nearly laughed myself off my computer chair.



I have blurred out the name to protect the identity of the person who is selling this unique "Assemblage" item. I don't think they worded it this way on purpose! However, I doubt I will be purchasing it soon.

Even though this is a digital sign, I think it still qualifies for Lesley's "Signs, Signs"!

(Note: For those who don't know me, I am a bit (insert snicker here) technologically challenged. My daughter rolled her eyes and said "why did you take a photo when all you had to do was a 'screen capture'"?
I am wiser now.
Next time I will know how to properly capture the moment)

  1. This is hilarious Clytie! By the way, I don't know how to "screen capture" either.

  2. Funny find, and I only recently learned the print screen function. I use it so seldom that I have put the instructions on a sticky note and attached it to my monitor. ;-)

  4. Lol - this made my day! Sometimes we are at the mercy of technology, often causing unintended results.
    Re: print screen. There is a cool, downloadable add-on from firefox called screenshot. It provides you options to grab the whole page or just a portion of it.

  8. I can think of a few people who could use that for their mouth, it might prevent them from sounding like an ass.

  9. Classic! Be careful what you write!

    Thanks for the continued thoughts, everything seems to be under control now. We even had some rain a couple of nights ago, a whole .1 inches. That makes 0.25 inches in the last 6 weeks!
