Beach Blanket Bingo

In Heaven a special corner must exist for people who dedicate their lives in the pursuit of drive-by entertainment. Why do they do it? Sacrificing their hard earned free time to give us a moment's pleasure as we whizz by in our cars.

The intrepid eventer79 submits and comments:

    "Oh was as tacky as it looks. We even saw the owners doing "repairs" the next day -- which consisted of adding a layer of duct tape and spray painting over top. This little gem is courtesy of Ocracoke Island."

who apparently also have a lot of free time on their hands.


  1. wow. I am almost speechless. But, seeing as I *am* redgirl, I'm sure I can come up with something:


    Due to past discriminatory claims made by curbside interlopers, the owners of this outre display elected to merely adapt one of the swimmers, ostentatiously choosing to select the least dressed in order to exhibit his compliance with city codes all the more clearly. The EHRC being satisfied on this count, PETA has stepped in over what can only be described as "our noble animal and reptile brothers being forced to melt in the hot sun. Despicable. And disgusting." Yard enthusiasts in charge of the swimmer strewn yard countered with "Y'all at PETA need to ree-lax. They ain't animals. They is ART." PETA mortifyingly retreated, stating "Anyone could have made such a mistake; the whale was just so lifelike." The owner of the yard intends on hiring the local pool boy to install heating in the pool so the swimmers can continue to enjoy their summer pleasures when winter hits.

  2. Redgirl, if I ever get a staff, you would be the first one I would hire.

    But what about the snowballs?

  3. Snow balls are to be incorporated in the design as an "Eskimo Theme". All persons will be adorned with fuzzy hats and seal-skin ponchos. Man with fishing pole will be given a hole in the ice to fish through, and the snowballs in the pool will represent ice flows. PETA would probably jump them for the seal-skin though, better make them faux..

    And thanks :) I'll consider myself honorary staff lol

  4. I don't know whether to be frightened or impressed by the duct tape dress...

  5. I cannot imagine spending a evening in clothes made of duct tape. The chaffing, the stiffness, the um odor... shudder.
