For a third entry, I love learning about the visitors of Give Away Today, so in a NEW comment tell me your first and last name and one of your favorite signs, t-shirts, bumper stickers, or billboards that you have seen.
Example: Jane Doe: When I was twenty-one I ran in the St. George Marathon with my roommate Jen. Along the marathon route we were surprised to see our other roommate’s parents who had come to support us. They were holding a sign that read “Good Job, Girls! And don’t worry, toenails are overrated!” (Just in case you are not a runner, your toenails will sometimes fall off after a marathon, which in this case, I did lose my left big toenail after the race. So not only was their sign cute, but it was also prophetic :)

The winner of the $30.00 gift certificate to Whismy Creations will be announced Thursday, February 26th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to check out our new giveaway for the day. Thanks!

Jeanine Crane: I remember when I was at college there was a big billboard as you drove onto the freeway asking, "Will you marry me?" I always thought it was a creative way to ask... and probably expensive too!

Alexandra Wilson: Happy Birthday Banner

Alex said...

Alexandra Wilson: One day my hubby and I were driving and we saw a truck with a trailer hauling a rusted old International truck. As we pulled up behind the trailer at a stoplight, there was a bumper sticker on the rusted truck that said "Love One Another." The sticker was old and cracked, but not faded. I got the best picture from the inside of my car of the sticker. It hangs framed in my bathroom.

Vanessa said...

Vanessa Perger: My favorite sign is one in my neighborhood of a police officer giving a person a ticket with his foot on the bumper of the car. I like it because it makes me think: "Watch out, this is a ticket zone where police will stop your car with their feet if necessary!" Never fails to make me smile.

Melissa Burr- I live in Oklahoma and attend Oklahoma State University. Our rivlas are the University of Oklahoma or OU- the sooners. Well for the big football game we went to campus to help cheer on the team. ESPN game day was there and I saw a little boy carry a sign that said ESPN- Every Sooner Picks his Nose. I loved it and the little boy looked so happy to display it- my favorite part.

"Save the Ta-Ta's" and had a pink ribbon on it for Breast Cancer. Thought it was a funny and different way to support Breast Cancer.

Kendahl Andrade: There were billboards up in Utah that for about 6 months said things like "LOSER" and "STUPID" and I thought that was hilarious. Turns out, it was an ad campaign for not calling your kids things like this, but they were still funny before I knew that. :)

mandy sadler - there is a town in west texas called big lake and it is so named because there used to be a huge lake but it has since dried up and there is a sign in the middle of the lake bed that says something funny (not sure of wording) about welcome to a town named big lake that has no lake.

Steph Lewin: My favorite t-shirt is the one I purchased on my first date with my fiancee at a Sci-fi convention that says "You don't need to look at my chest. These aren't the breasts you're looking for. Move along." which is a Star Wars reference (Obi Wan- in case you couldn't place it).

It's actually kind of ironic because now we are getting married :)

Kimberly Nasfell: I love, love, love the bumper sticker that says, "Honk if you love Ta-Tas" (it's a breast cancer awareness sticker) I laugh sooooooo hard (and coincidentally honk my horn A LOT) every time I see it. I've had many close friends and family members battle with breast cancer so to see support for it in an optomistic (and humorous) way is so refreshing!

Rachel Biornstad: I played volleyball in college and on one of our many roadtrips we saw the oddest sign we had ever seen in all our travels together. We were in Michigan in a "construction zone" for a stretch on the highway. More than once, there was a sign posted saying something along the lines of, "Injure/Kill a worker: $15,000". We could not stop laughing. I have a picture of it. So if you save up and feel like killing someone... it only costs 15k in Michigan...!?!?! No mentioning of jail time or sentencing... I'd like to see the person who was in charge of making that sign and ask him/her what they were thinking! :)
