Funny Photos from America


I always look for funny and offbeat things whenever I take a road trip.  I guess that's because I'm a funny and offbeat kind of guy.  I've posted funny photos from my travels around America in 2001 on this page.  To see more funny photos be sure to check out these pages:





Above left:  The (really) long and winding road...

Above center:  Paul Bunyan and his hot Babe.

Above right:  A retired gas pump in Cannonville, Utah. 



Above left:  A small river in southern Utah that feeds into the Colorado River.  It was named in 1869 by the Powell Expedition, the first group to travel down the Colorado, because of its sulfurous smell.  It's hard to smell today because those dirty devils at the Bureau of Reclamation dammed up the Colorado River.

Above center:  A motel in west Texas that admittedly isn't the Hilton.  Well, at least they're honest.  

Above right:  And in Virginia.  Again, at least they're honest. 



Above left:  Don't bring any soap to this nursery near Richmond, Virginia.

Above center:  Jeez, how come I never meet women like this?

Above right:  I think this Pennsylvania town is somewhere near Two-in-Bush.



Above left:  A rude town in western Massachusetts.

Above center:  I think I know why people go here.

Above right:  The bathroom humor continues with a sign in a Harvard Square shop.  And it's not just any pooping cow, but the FAMOUS pooping cow.


Above left:  Here's my town, near Syracuse.  Whoville (and the Grinch) are nearby.

Above center:  One of the Seven Dwarves?  I think Doc drives a Cadillac. 

Above right:  Apparently you can get an anchovy pizza at this bank in St. Peter, Minnesota (or "chickin" wings).



Above left:  "Buttered Corn Day" is the annual highlight of this Minnesota town.  But it's August 16-19, so shouldn't it be Buttered Corn DAYS?

Above right:  What about the other eye?


Above left:  Laura Ingalls Wilder lived a few blocks from this bar in De Smet, South Dakota.  But I don't think she ever downed a cold one here. 

Above center:  Well, duh.   

Above right:  What exactly are they doing in their cars here, in Webster, South Dakota?



Above left:  There's actually an International Vinegar Festival.  Not only can you hear Pastor Wilson singing "his hits" (as only the Pastor can sing them) and see Mike Dunn's famous rope demonstration, but you can also hear "the Polish singer," Tony Wika.  Yes folks, only in the Midwest...

Above center:  Personally I lust after Toyotas, not Buicks.

Above right:  A place to clean my fish, that's always what I look for in a motel.



Above left:  I've always wanted to live on this street in Bismarck, North Dakota.

Above right:  King Kong lives! (and in Mandan, North Dakota). 



Above left:  An appropriate sign for late October in Livingston, Montana.

Above right:  My brother's cat, Precious, at the dishwasher getting her last licks in.




And here are some funny ponderables:

  • If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?  

  • When someone tells you, “A penny for your thoughts,” and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

  • Why is the person who invests all your money called a broker?

  • When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?

  • If people from “Poland” are called “Poles”, why aren’t people from “Holland” called “Holes”?

  • Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

  • How much deeper would oceans be if sponges didn’t live there?

  • If FedEx and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

  • Why is something sent by ship called cargo, when something sent by a car is called a shipment?

  • If a cow laughed, would milk come out of its nose?

  • Why do croutons come in airtight packages?  It’s just stale bread to begin with.

  • If it’s true that we’re here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?
