Friday Funnies, Poster Humor

Before I get to some posters, I want to mention that I had a 75% response rate on 1 of the 7 things I divulged about myself on my Stylish Blogger Award.  In case you missed it, I share a name with a famous adult film star.  Leave it up to porn to get people talking.  I might have to start playing this aspect up a little more on my blog now that I'm discovering there are a lot of perverted runners out there.  Maybe after I qualify for Boston, I can rename my blog "Not 2 Slow 4 69".  One of the more interesting encounters I've had where my name came into play was when I got into a fender bender with this cute little coed about 10 years ago.  When we exchanged information, I noticed her driver's license said she was Amber Lynn.  Of course, she wanted to know why I was cracking up, so I explained to her that I was Jon Holmes, and that both of our names were 80s porn stars.  She giggled as that was news to her, but maybe that knowledge corrupted her a little bit that afternoon.  (See for yourselves the movies they appeared in together)  The only way there could've been more poetic justice that day was if I rear ended her instead of vice versa.

Now that that's out of the way, I try to keep most of my posts about running or related to it, so that makes this the exception.  I figured I would pass on some funny posters.  A little disclaimer, I figure if you're a repeat reader of my blog, you must not get offended too easily.  Which ones do you think are the most funny?

That is the best story, and I am so glad you posted it! However, it is much better in person. I'm glad I get Jon Holmes in real life, and not just on my computer screen.

Like Lay's potato chips... can't pick just one... or something like that :P
They are all pretty awful/funny! The tattoo one did make me LOL but mostly because it reminded me of something similar from my real life.

So funny about that car accident... and your name :) My husband's name is Dirk, and he got a lot of Dirk Diggler jokes when Boogie Nights came out.
