    Free fabric?

    I went on a road trip the beginning of the week to look at a sewing machine not available in our area. On the road there, my attention was naturally drawn to a sign by the side of the road. Free fabric. At least that is what I thought I saw. On a second look I found that I had reversed the words. It wasn't free fabric at all as I had hoped. The sign said: Fabric free.........entertainment. I had to laugh out loud. Oh, how we use language to make things which are really distasteful seem less so.....

    I had a similar situation. I thought it was a jewelry store. It was called "Pure Platinum". When i walked by with my friend and saw it was strip joint she was in hysterics from my shock. It turned out the true name was "Dirty Dan's Pure Platinum."
