Rodeo Drive

Driving southward on the expressway I noticed a bill board, similar to this, but with the addition of woman's face smiling from it:




It took me a few minutes before I realized it was not advertising the Annual Grand Isle Tampon Rodeo.

In my defense, I remember wrestling those things out of the nets many times when I'd go crabbing.
They do put up a good fight.

Erm, then what is it advertising?

It's advertising, sadly, a fishing competition. I think my idea would be more fun.

Tampon Rodeo, Fish Competition...same dif.

jason said...

touche.

I totally read it as tampon. But hey, they both end in blood and misery. Main dif is that the poor fish can't take ibuprofen to make it all better.

Jim said...

Sometimes I read to fast and for a few minutes all I got was that you had to fish tampons out of your crabs, and the tampons put up a fight. Is that right?

Tampon rodeo. I'm picturing someone on a horse trying to lassoo a running tampon.

jason said...

Jim, you're actually right.

Still at the rodeo, Blanche?

Sweetie, totally unrelated, but still.... HGTV's Design Star reality show had their big finale last night set somewhere vaguely in New Orleans. The show kept referring to the Ninth Ward, but the houses they did had yards that looked too big for anywhwere down there. More Lakefront, if you ask me. If you get a chance to watch a repeat let me know what you think.

Given the mis-read, the poster illo reminds me of that time the gal from L7 whipped one out and chucked it into the audience.

...or should I have never brought that up?

sorry.

Tampon Rodeo? Is that what you call what those girls did to "Carrrie" in the locker room?

Silly Monkey said...

When you say "whipped one out," you do mean out of the BOX, right? Oh, why do I think (know) that you don't mean that? :P

I used to go to Grand Isle with some girlfriends in high school, one of their dads had a camp. It was like a tampon rodeo! Ever been crabbing at Pointe-aux-Chene?

jason said...

oh David...you have no idea.
One day I'll have to write about there.
(And welcome!)
