Perpetually Peeved

Friday “the fa…?”

Okay, so I’m a total slack-ass and missed Wednesday “what the…?”  Readers (all 2 of you, you know who you are) can now stop stalking me for posts.  I’ve got plenty of stuff for you today, folks.  Get prepared for Friday “the fa…?” – it’s like Wednesdays, only better.  Remember that song by C&C Music Factory?  Start humming it.  Okay, now substitute “hmm” for “the fa?”  Now, keep that on in the background.  Here we go:

Actual nutritional label on the back of a can of mixed nuts.

In other news, coffee is hot and if you are allergic to shellfish you shouldn’t order the crabcake po’ boy.

This is what happened to all those dirtbags who used to smoke pot in the commons in high school.  Xfinity has locked them in a room and tasked them with writing movie previews.  The saddest part?  This is probably the most entertaining thing on television.

The following Friday “the fa?”s have been brought to you courtesy of a trip to the “country” (an hour and a half outside the big city) for some pumpkin picking and apple frittering…

Yep, I think this one speaks for itself.  If it doesn’t, pat yourself on the back you are a better person than me.

There is only one place this outfit would be even marginally acceptable: a walk for breast cancer.  A monochromatic jogging suit? A PINK monochromatic jogging suit?  Head-to-toe pink? A jogging suit to a family outing?  Replete with spring-action PINK Nikes?  Monochromatic sweats are not slimming.  They make you look pregnant when you are not.  They are not appropriate under all but the smallest of circumstances. At least it’s not velour (*cringe*).

When Just for Men goes bad...

Maybe he was just trying to be festive.  Or, maybe he was hoping the bozo haircolor would distract people enough to not realize he is carrying his wife’s purse.  At least, I hope that’s his wife’s purse.  Can you say “pumpkin-whipped?”

I will be blowing this up, cutting it out and hanging it on my wall for the Halloween party.  I like to call her “Frankenmom” – that hair puts Kate Gosselin to shame.  To shame.

Pumpkin roll, anyone?

Um… I think you put the emPHASIS on the wrong sylLABLE, or something like that.

Happy Friday y’all!

And Ms. Breast Cancer Awareness is taking a picture. Probably of her kid–also dressed monochromatic–doing something mundane.

And love the Just for men gone bad!

Happy Friday PP!

Are you sure you were just an hour and a half outside the big city? Looks like you strayed much further away from home.
Ugh. That frankenmom haircut is the worst! Who told her that style looked good? Probably the lady with the exposed belly roll.

You should know that in the South, you don’t have too go far to get country. 😉

The picture of the guy with the purse made me laugh out loud. We were at the airport for a very long layover in Miami in August and we entertained ourselves by noticing how many guys carry purses now. What is up with that?

The nutritional facts on nuts drive me crazy… well… duh… there’s nuts in here?

Purses are like tampons, men have no business walking around with them. I don’t care what GQ says.

“Pumpkin Roll!” That was GOLD! We are heading to the pumpkin patch tomorrow, we will compare notes post that outing!

Comment by apieceofthepiehole

Ooh… I want pictures! 🙂

They have to put the “other tree nuts” on the label. This way you know you are not committing cannibalism, i.e., nuts at job, nuts in grocery store, nuts on news, nuts on Christmas card relative/friends list, nuts next door, etc.

Gosh! A Peanut warning on a container of Peanuts! And to think, someone got paid to make up that label. 🙂

Note to self …must never wear my pink monochromatic jogging suit out in public again!! Oh except if I wear my snuggie over the top ( then you won’t notice my pumpkin belly!)

Comment by frigginloon

Poor pink jogging suit lady. All I want to know is did she buy the suit to go with the sneakers or the sneakers to go with the suit? Either way she left hte house feeling proud.

Of course, as a professional “grammar hammer,” I could hardly stand the quotation marks around the “DO NOT”: Why do people “do that”? Everyone needs to go back to “third grade” and relearn the proper use of “quotation marks.” Maybe pink jogging suit lady thought she “looked” hawt. May she enjoy her “eatable” pumpkins.

Monochromatic pink suit . . . not cool.

So that’s what happened to Edward Furlong. I never saw him again after Terminator 2.

Cinderella: Eatable. That would have been one of those moments when I snorted, then looked around to see who else was laughing and realized that no one else was. So I’d just savor it.

Comment by mc6pack

Funny. I was giggling to myself as I took the picture and my friend walked by and said, “Eatable? Why do I have a feeling that’s ending up on the blog?”

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Oh, this was funny. I have to do this…planning, planning, must plan my posts better.

This was fun, thank you..and I have seen that hair. everywhere. and they that sport it, really think they look good.
