Most people put up signs advertising yard sales and cars for sale. (That is if they haven’t made the move to Facebook marketplace or a different online platform yet.) Never have we seen husbands for purchase. We wonder what event triggered this.
We’re not sure we would want to buy someone else’s husband. If she’s giving him away he probably did something awful. Then again, we wonder if he is for sale under capacities other than a husband. We wouldn’t mind buying the guy if he has any skills as a cleaner or if he knows how to make some solid fried chicken.
Tell Me Why!
By now, everyone's familiar with the confused man meme. This yard sale brought him to life once again, confused as to why people aren't buying everything the yard sale has to offer. Well, we don't have an answer for you, man! We are guessing it's probably because the merchandise is not up to par.
It could also be that the sign has no time or address. You know, people need that sort of thing to know when and where your garage sale is. It's not like they would start walking around the neighborhood and ask where is Meme Guy's house.
Going for a walk around the neighborhood and stumbling upon a yard sale sign is usually nothing to write home about. Going for a walk around the neighborhood and stumbling upon a funny yard sale sign, however? Now that's a different story. At the very least, it's something to at least tell social media about.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's a worthwhile yard sale. It takes a lot of confidence to indicate that the things you're selling are so high-quality one might think they've made their way to a department store. Here's to celebrating second-hand treasures!
Burning Down the House
They say that where there is smoke there is fire. This adage would imply that anyone that has smoke coming out of their mouth is enough cause to call the fire department. Or at least have them sprinkled with water. Smoking is so passé anyway. A clean-cut lawn is where it's all at.
And yet, some people inconsiderately smoke on other people's property. It's a tale as old as time, so this family decided to take matters into their own hands. You've been warned — come near this house with a cigarette, and you'll be sorry. Not to mention, soggy.
We Like Big Sales, and We Cannot Lie
The people having this big yard sale took the classic lyrics to "Baby Got Back," rewrote them, and then used them to promote their sale. Truthfully, this is all we needed to convince us to make our way over to the sale, and we weren't even there. So we're guessing that this sale was a big hit. Almost as big as Sir Mix-A-Lot's 1992 one-hit-wonder.
Now that we're thinking about it, this song has some great yard sale potential. Think about titling the whole event as "Baby Got BackYard Sale" or the lyrics "I like yard sales and I cannot lie." The thing practically writes itself.
