Two Sentence Tuesday --Double Entendre To Go, Please

We went away to southern BC for the Canada Day long weekend. It's always good to get away. It shakes up the thinking, gets some different air into the lungs, and puts new new sights before the eyes.
Among the sights seen that can't be unseen was a billboard somewhere north of Invermere, BC.
I regret not getting a photo of it.
I saw it on the way down with the intention of shooting it on the way home.  But it was raining then and there'd been an accident in Invermere which held up the holiday traffic. Irate drivers and rain don't make for good stopping.
The billboard was an ad for Bull's Eye Barbecue Sauce.
The following slogan on the ad is my contribution to what I read this week:
"Sauce So Bold
Pork Will
Pull Itself."
The ad worked in that I'm writing about it, but I was so busy with the ad copy I didn't notice the sauce brand and had to look it up. That said, it did make me look.
My contribution to the cause is much tamer, and hope at least half as memorable.
From BloodLovers:
"An open place, an empty quarter but for the animals. A place where she could do as she pleased at the times she pleased and maybe there'd be a time when she'd be able to speak a coherent sentence to Jem again."
Thank you for your time. For more, or to get in on the fun, please see the Women of Mystery.

I agree with Crabby - can't wait to see BloodLovers on the best seller list!

The billboard cracked me up, but I do have a bit of 12-year old left in me.....

Ah, yes. The billboard reminds me of a deli near where I used to live. It was called Jack & Charlie's and they sold T-Shirts with the slogan:

"Jack & Charlie's: You can't beat our meat."

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Bag Lady. And the 12-year- old in me honours the 12-year-old in you.

Laura, oh, my. That must have raised a few smiles.

The Kum & Go convenience store chain in Montana tickled me when I was there. I got the tee-shirt, but my wife won't let me wear it. Ha.

Intriguing. Makes me want to know what she wants to tell Jem.

Leah J. Utas said...

Ron, a store with a sense of humour. Next time I'm in Montana I'll have to look for a store.

Thank you, Messymimi. I hope someday you'll be able to read it and find out.

I don't get the billboard, guess that's cause I'm so much younger than you & Sis! :)

Your lines make me want to go there too.

Still innocent, that's our Reb.
