Sometimes, you pass by a sign that jolts you.
That happened to me today. It was an election sign that simply said: “Curtis For Bath Supervisor.”
What? We elect people to supervise our bathing? The mind jumps to — well, Ernie (shown here) singing “Rubber Ducky.” Or Marilyn Monroe in a bubble-bath scene or some such.
It sort of needs context, I guess. Like the time I saw a sign that said “Rich Girls Track Team.”
I really didn’t know that rich girls had their own team. Or that they could run very fast. Between them, I can’t think of any athletic medals won by Ivanka Trump, Gloria Vanderbilt or any of the Kardashians.
Then I remembered that I was in Dwight Rich Middle School. And today, I remembered I was in Bath Township. That takes the fun out of it.
