Literally? 8-5-2017

I don’ know how many of my fellow bloggers are literal people, but I am. Does it scare anybody else how little people seem to use their brain these days?  Is literacy dead?

If you tell me something, I am going to take your words literally. So, if you show me the signs below, don’t be upset when I point out their idiocy in a very sarcastic manner.

Sometimes all I can do is to fall back on my standard reply:

“You have an inner serial killer?”

“Yes. Sort of like the Kellogg Killer.”

“Never heard of him.”

“Really?  He was a big thing back in the 90’s.”

“Nope, never heard of him. Who did he kill?”

“Ah… Suzy Frost and her sister Sarah Frost.  Then again, they were both flakes.”

“Really? Anybody else?”

“Lucky Charman.”

“A Mafia boss?”

“He was just a big marshmallow.”

“This sounds pretty serious.”

“Oh yes. It’s been years in the solving.”

“You mean he hadn’t been caught?”

“Not yet.”

“Do you think he’s still around?”

“Oh yes, I saw him at the store the other day.”

“You know who he is and you haven’t told the police!”

“Well, it’s not like I want to rat on myself.”

“Wait….. you’re the Kellogg Killer?”



“I had to quit, you know.”

“Ah… why?”

“Damn Corn Flakes kept getting ground into the carpet.”
