In Which I Do A Double-Take

I've written about something this in the past, but this is too good not to share.

On my drive into work last week, I drove past this house that is having some work done to it. An addition or remodel, something like that. I honestly haven't paid enough attention to the house itself to notice. What caught my attention was the sign that the contractor doing the work on the house placed on the lawn near the road, advertising for his business.

I don't know how many times I had driven past it, but something on it caught my eye the last time I drove past it where I reminded myself to pay attention to it this time. I let up on the gas a bit so I could read it. Here is my (poorly rendered) mock-up of what it looked like:

Pretty innocuous, right? Yeah. The thing is that I thought it said something different. Here is what I thought it said originally:

VAG construction, eh? I mean, I guess I always knew that there were contractors who serviced vaginas, especially in the comfort of your own home, but I didn't think we had gotten to a point where they could advertise for them. We're a progressive country at times, sure, but not that progressive.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

This company doesn't seem too efficient. I mean, why would it take over a week to complete such a service? You would think it would be, um, like an in and out sort of job. Done in a few minutes at most.

I've had similar work done by T & A construction.

@ Big Daddy: it says, "Another QUALITY Job done by VAG Construction" - in and out in a few minutes does not a quality job make, and if you think so, I feel sorry for your wife!

B.A.G., this made me laugh just as hard as J.V.'s "Johnny's T_IT Station" sign, but I can't say I'm as tempted to call these guys as I was about the T_IT servicing, and I don't think I'd want it advertised that my vag needed any type of contruction/repair... yikes!

Oh gosh, I don't know how many times I have done that in route. I remember once years ago I had to turn around and go back to make sure I that I truly was seeing things. I don't remember what it was though.

Yours is very comical. Good story!

Listen. If you want to add a second story to your vagina, or even just a skylight, you don't want to hire just anybody. You want specialists.

Damn, I read that sign wrong, too, at first. And I thought a sign by my house that said “24 hour massage!” was suspicious…

Chuck said...

Yeah I heard of that company...they do work in the delivery room at Parkland Hospital here in Dallas. Their motto: "Just like they were never born".

MadApple said...

This totally reminded me of the VAG Club at my school.

...Video and Gaming Club. Ohhhh yeah.

Do they do small jobs, like bikini waxing, too?

Badass Geek said...

Big Daddy Autism: My thoughts exactly.

Kev D: Yeah?

Kristina: That's not exactly a Yellow Pages kind of service.

Tay Talk: Glad you enjoyed it.

Didactic Pirate: Absolutely.

Writer Ninja: That's a long ass massage.

Chuck: Hilarious!

MadApple: Epic.

Evil Pop Tart: I would assume so.
