Signs...A Round Robin Promotion

"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination."

-Albert Einstein

Ok, I know, my sense of humor can be a bit juvenile at times, but I thought this sign was funny. LOL. I have always enjoyed the fine art of the "play on words." So I thought this was a pretty good example of such. Keep in mind, before you think me hopelessly silly, that another thing that made this sign so funny, was that when I first saw it I had just had a minor tiff with Alan, and we were being kinda quiet, but the silence was broke when we both looked up and thought the same thought, at the same time, and we just looked at each other in disbelief and began to laugh. Ahhhhhh. The power of laughter, to soothe the soul. :)

I love the latest Round Robin subject choice. Kimberleigh, author of the journal, "I Shaved My Legs For This," has come up with a winner. :) I have a full file of sometimes humorous, sometimes thought provoking signs I have collected over the years, so I am especially looking forward to this challenge. I say that a lot, don't I? Well, it's just that the Robins have impressed me so much with the subject choices that they have been chosen so far. "Secrets," "Mysterious Doorways," "Cliches," "Wabi-Sabi" just to name a few. I think this might be a lot of fun, after all,who doesn't have a town that contains at least one wacky sign in it? But remember, the sign doesn't necessarily have to be wacky, because Kimberleigh's idea is for us to find a sigh that accurately says something about who we are. "It could be a street sign, a billboard, or even a peace sign. Let's just be creative and have fun with it." Kimberleigh darlin, that sounds good to me! :)

The date for this challenge will be Wednesday, March 15th, As usual you can post anytime between the midnights on that day. You can sign up to play at the official Round Robin Challenges journal. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the *Welcome Entry & Rules Of Play.* That entry contains all the information and updated rules for the Round Robin Challenges, it can be found on the sidebar. It's really simple, and a lot of fun. I hope you will join us. You know you want to. ;)

Now I have the McCartney song Ballroom Dancing in my head. And memories of the woman in a ball gown, slapping her thigh in time to a filk song.
