It’s always good to research your market before you go door to door. You need to know your crowd before you can sell them anything, be it goods or services. What’s even better is when people do the research for you, making it clear if you should or shouldn’t bother trying to sway them into buying your paintings. Or vacuum cleaners.
Or join your new religion under the rule of your lizard lord. Now, these solicitors know that they’ll be barking up the wrong tree. Will they find it discouraging? Or perhaps they’ll whip out those selling skills and rise to the challenge? Go, capitalism.
Let's Go, Vader
Here's someone who has abandoned all hope (or reality) and allowed themselves to create their own fantasy government. Because why not? Darth Vader might be a good leader, sure, he'll rule with an iron fist and the force may feel a little "dark" at times but hey, we've seen worse.
Plus, aren't we tired of seeing suits and ties in the White House? A nice cape might be just the kind of pizzazz that a country leader needs. We're sure many folks also believe that Vader should be the one true ruler of the galaxy. Where do we sign up?
People have been using animals to protect them from different things for hundreds (possibly thousands) of years. We trained dogs to bark when they hear a stranger in the house, trained cats to hunt our pests, and even trained ducks as emotional support systems. (True story, by the way.)
So yeah, some people have ferocious rottweilers or bulldogs. Others have deadly rabbits that quietly lurk in the shrubbery, waiting for any undesirable visitors. Dare one to trespass, they might meet their fate. Seriously, is this like some kind of Monty Python breed of rabbit? If so, that's actually a little worrying.
Don't Be Alarmed!
If you live near a farmhouse or a property with stables, hopefully, you would be familiar with this by now, but if not, just know that there is nothing wrong with the horses laying on the ground. Most people aren't used to seeing horses sleeping, so when they do, they think there is something wrong with them.
Are they sick? Are the owners mistreating them? No, they are just taking a nap. Maybe we should do the same. Good to know that, at the very least, they are concerned enough about the horses' wellbeing to call the police about it!
Dandelions are delightful little flowers that should harm no one. Though on the other hand, gusts of wind may have sent these delicate little petals flying into (possibly allergic) neighbors' noses. Those neighbors then put up a sign asking Mr. Dandelion to handle the overflow of flowers in their yard.
Though we think the all-caps and the three exclamation marks are overkilling it, Mr. Dandelion's response is priceless. When you find yourself overwhelmed by dandelions, just make it a free-for-all! We wonder how many people showed up for dandelion picking that day. Certainly not the ones who put up that sign.
