Here's The Rub

I was talking with a guy from work yesterday (I'd say friend but I really don't like him) and he mentioned something that happened to him at the supermarket that I had to share with you. I wanted to go there and take photos but I expect it isn't up there anymore.

Anyhow, he goes into the store to do a little shopping and stops by where the butcher is to pick up some pork ribs. He hears a few people laugh behind him and blows it off. As he's walking away, he sees a sign over some seasoning that says "Don't Forget To Rub Your Meat." He laughs a little and looks to the butcher he just bought his ribs from and says, "You really ought to take this sign down." The butcher tells him that he had handwritten the sign himself and that it was perfectly fine. My co-worker explained to the butcher the 'other way' people are interpreting it and he turns bright red and says that he'll take care of it. Damn, I wanted a photo of that sign to put up here.

Poor guy. He probably worked hard on that sign and was proud of it.

But, it is funny.

Don't forget about buying the "special sauce."

I usually pound my meat with a tenderizing hammer...

The picture would have been the perfect end to that story! How funny. I love it when people send the email with stupid signs and double entendre signs. They really tickle my funny bone. Thanks for the giggle.

You guys and your meat, LoL. I swear...

BTW, why did you co-worker tell him to take the sign down? What's wrong with a little humor in advertising?

Funny story. Guess the butcher hadn't actually said it out loud when he thought of it. Made me giggle.
