Formula 1

So the baby bottle is supposed to make me think of the time of soft, hairless skin...
Then why does this make me think of adult diapers, pureed foods, bibs, drool, walking with help, making infantile sounds and nursing homes?

Long Day At Work

Hard day at work? Try working 6 days for a low salary only to pay it all on high cell phone rates, 2 electric bills, 2 water bills and the highest gas prices in the region( thanks neighbors) and the ever increasing cost of food as well as private schools, then get back to us. Did I mention the expensive and substandard internet?
If you have any connections that could help out.......don't you have a list of who's naughty and nice?

Unfinished Business

Dear Santa, Sorry about the dirt and grime on your hat from the diesel generators.
 Decent Electricity was on our list but perhaps it didn't fit in your sleigh.
Maybe we'll forward this request to the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy.

Where Did I Put My (3-D) Glasses?

If you wear 3-D glasses, it would look like things are really coming at you,
sorta like driving in Beirut.

Recipe for Disaster

Take a nut, then put it in a ball, be gentle with the balls, as they are easily damaged.
The balls and nuts can be hung in pairs or sometimes in a set of three.

Eastside or Westside?

 Experts have been called in to investigate suspected gang activity.
Bling bling, hand signals and secret words (White Sin= White's In) are all telltale signs.

Red, White and Blue

"The more an object contrasts with its surroundings, the more visible it becomes."
Red on white on blue is more visible than red on pink on red.
Not to mention, 13 fingers are creepy.

Love Story

True love lasts as long as the electricity does...

then it's back to washing by hand and using your imagination.

200% Lebanese

Add 30+ school kids in matching uniforms, each facing in opposite directions. leave the sliding door open as you buzz through narrow side streets, make sure the driver is chain smoking, add some dings and dents and please paint this classic beauty that funky blue color and THEN you'll be 200% Lebanese! (No Bumper? No Hubcaps? Add 25%!!)
