Funny Things!

It's been a while since I've done a "Funny Things" post, so I thought it was about time :)
This picture (below) makes me laugh for a few reasons. It's funny just because there are a bunch of cops crammed into this rickshaw... but it's funniest to me because there is a cop sitting in the front seat with the driver - which is against the law! haha! I have a picture of the cops breaking the law ;)
Another rickshaw picture :) This guy was headed to the bus or train station with is luggage. He looks a little funny all crammed into this rickshaw with his luggage... but look closely at the bottom of his pant leg ...
I've never seen a zipper at the bottom of a pair of pants before - not sure why it's there or what it's purpose is - but it makes me laugh :) Would you zip your pants closed or the end of your pants together? hmm...
Misspellings always make me laugh :) This is on a middle of a busy road... I think it's also funny that it used to say "parking" at the top... hmm... haha!
This one may not be that funny, but it makes us laugh :) Usually with alphabet books, Xx is usually "xylophone" or "x-ray"... this one has Xylophone but also has X-mas tree! haha! That makes me laugh :)
So one Saturday morning we went to the Netherlands Embassy for a garage sale (sounds weird hunh?). They were selling and auctioning things off - it was pretty crazy! There was something that stood out to me in the picture below that made me laugh...
Here's a closer look... yes, tire chains... you know for snow?? Hmm... for a semi-arid HOT city, that's a funny thing to try to sell :) Sure, we have a couple months that are colder... but not cold enough to snow muchless to need chains on your tires :) haha! (it's like trying to sell tire chains in Mexico or Northern Africa or something :) haha!)
Just thought I'd share a few things that make me laugh :)

oooh, blog makeover! I like it.

Also, thanks to this post, Nathan officially knows the word "rickshaw."

Doesn't it mean something special when they're green? Everything I know about your city I learned from you and the amazing race. :)

Well, the Green & yellow rickshaws are government rickshaws. I don't think you can have one that isn't though :) In the south and some places in the East they're usually yellow & black :)

Thanks for the smile! I'd like to print off the first picture and put it in my purse in case a cop ever pulls us over for having a passenger in the front of the rickshaw :).

I found that "Don't be taken for a ride," article about rickshaws in my wallet the other day. :) I love it that there is an endless supply of funny things there. :)

I actually laughed out loud at some of these! Maybe zippers are a fashion trend we are missing...
