WTF Friday

I have decided I'm going to start a little thing called WTF Friday.  And pancake bunny is going to be my mascot.  If this is already in existence on someone's blog or has a website, sorry, I don't know about it.  All I can say is great minds think alike.  Speaking of, why does no one ever finish that phrase?  I mean, myself included.  Everyone always says, "You know what they say, great minds...." and then leave it at that.  That's not what they say.  That's what everyone else says.  If the saying is "Great minds think alike," then we should say it.  The saying isn't just the first half.  Of course if you don't know the second half, maybe you aren't a great mind.  Perhaps it's like intellectual natural selection.  Does that even make sense?  Oh well.  I digress.

So yes, I have decided I might try to do a little thing on Fridays about things that make you wonder, "What the...?"  One would think I would have plenty of fodder for this, but we shall see.  It might go over like a lead balloon.  I might get lazy.  Maybe both.  Who knows.  Only time will tell.  Mwaha.

I'm kinda in a dorky mood today, if that wasn't obvious, lol.  So I apologize if this doesn't make much sense.  But you want to know what really doesn't make sense?  This:

This was found at Goodwill in the floral section.  My friend found it.  I was stopped in my tracks.  Can anyone even explain to me what this IS?  And if so, what is it's purpose?  The best description I can possibly come up with is a doll topiary.  There are no arms, no legs...not really even a body.  Just a doll head and a *lot* of lace.  Stuck in a flower pot.  And there are not one, but TWO of them, clearly they were a set. Cause I know that if I'm going to have a doll topiary, I need at least two, otherwise the look will just feel totally unbalanced.  I'm also amused that it's hiding out in the floral section.  I mean, technically it is a kind of topiary, but those are usually out of, oh, I don't know....plants.  This has not a flower on it.  Though I applaud the worker that decided it belonged here and not in the "random crap no one knows what to do with" section.  Because clearly they have some knowledge of greenery or landscaping.  UNLIKE my very dear friends whom I love but cost me a game a Cranium.  I drew a perfect topiary.  Not a one of them knew what it was.  No one.  Yes, I am still a little bitter, lol.  Anywho, that's all I got for the first installment of WTF Friday.  Hope you enjoyed it!  If not, I'll be back to regularly scheduled ramblings tomorrow.  :)

If you guys want a good laugh, you should go here and watch the video from Telling Dad.  Seriously, it's hilarious.

Love the idea! Fab one! Of course it would orginiate with you!

And with that phrase - you know, the "You Know What they Say...." That's usually all I say and when the other person says "No, what?" (because I usually say it when it totally is NOT appropriate to the situation ie: arguing with the hubs or something) I respond with "You don't? Oh, well, neither do I"

Sounds like fun to me. This occurrence you are writing about happens about every three seconds in my life, so a blog about it could be a good outlet. :)

Oh shit that doll in fluff scared me! You need a warning for stuff like that!

Love the idea of WTF Friday - love it!!

And the bunny needs syrup... and maybe powder sugar. Then, he'll be perfect.

That's an excellent point about the "Great Minds...." thing. I think you're onto something with the theory that if you can't finish the quote, you're not a great mind.

Of course, if ever you do say the entire quote, the person you're talking to retorts, "Fools Never Differ," so really, what's the point?
