I did this tray puzzle pre-fatherhood and just broke it out for My preschooler. It has two illustrations – color for the pieces, and black and white for the tray. Some elements are in the same place – sand, horizon, lifeguard chair – but the people are doing different things (which you can’t see here).
This seems a bit off-topic, but I’ve been thinking a lot about MAD Magazine lately so…
Every once in a while an ad will surface on ye ol’ net – it’ll be odd or outlandish, and most often it’ll be fake. (Right now there’s one for Grey Poupon making the rounds.)
I saw saw this one on TV about ten years ago, and if it hadn’t been in the midst of a block of ads somewhere on basic cable, I would’ve sworn it was a parody.
This was in a MAD collection, but I’m not sure where. I think it was on the bargain racks at Barnes and Noble. You know the ones – lots of books published just to be sold at discount prices. And, of course Calvin and Hobbes collections. (Is there a massive stockpile of these in an underground bunker at an undisclosed location in the Midwest that is not, definitely not, Kansas City?)
If you’ve been traipsing the mean e-streets of the internet long enough you know that most of the “funny” pics that you see didn’t originate with the site you’re seeing them on. Their chain of custody is long and tangled; almost impossible to track back to Poster Zero.
Not this one. This one comes straight from me to you. (I’ve cut out the middleman and passed the savings onto you!) This gem was in my local supermarket parking lot. Don’t know if the owner is a local or just someone passing through on their way to another airbrushed galaxy.
