What Is It? #4- Blue Light Special

It's been a while since I did one of these. Thought it might be fun to bring back.

I made a trip to the local K-Mart today to use my b-day money for some much needed work jeans. Yeah, I'm a big spender on things like that. Ever ready with the camera, I decided to snap a few shots of some various things in the store.

Some are pretty obvious, others maybe not so much. See if you can tell what they are and I'll put up a similar post tomorrow night with the expanded views of each of the objects.

BTW I gave Lisa a note pad and pen and asked her to write down all the things I do that irritate or annoy her. (Yes, I like to walk that fine line between brave and stupid) I'll post them when (and if) she hands me a completed list. So far she has seven things listed. I'd like to think I'm doing pretty good, but the reality is, she's probably just getting warmed up.

"Attention K-Mart shoppers...we have a blue light special in _______."








I just realized how monochromatic most of these are. Sorry for the boring color.


Ron said...

Hey, Jeff...I love when you do these!!'s my answers:

1-plastic hangers
2-shoelaces on a boot
3-a shutter for a window or door
4-a vagina
5-a fan
6-a bathroom hook
7-I have NO freaking idea???

And I can't wait to hear Lisa's list!!!

Great post, buddy!

Sandi McBride said...

I recognize the hangers on a rack and the shoelaces on a shoe, a set of blinds? Okay, I'm totally done now, I don't do K-Mart...not ever...unless Wal-mart's is closed and I understand hell hasn't frozen over yet...this is a fun thing to do, but more importantly, where is the Lisa List? You show me her list, I'll show you Mac's...

Dana said...

Oh the memories! The first time I ever stumbled upon your blog you were doing one of these! It's what got me adicted ...

I've been jonsing for quite some time Jeff. Thanks for the fix!!

Anonymous said...

Never mind Lisa's list of your faults (did I mention she just called asking to borrow more paper 'cause she ran out already?), I'm wondering where in the bloody hell you found the woman to pose for number four????


Jahooni said...

darn it... Ron got them all right, right?

Jeff B said...

Ron- Your answer to #4 just about made me mess myself. Bwhahahaha

As for the others, you got a couple right.

Sandi- Lisa has the same alergic type of reaction to K-Mart. I'll get her list out within the next couple of days.

Dana- Glad I could quench your thirst.

Mom- Hardy hardy har har. And she doesn't need you to point out any that she might have missed.

If I ever saw a womans hoo hoo look like that I'd be very nervous.

Jahooni- Not all, but he has scored the most points for cracking me up!

jennifer said...

Jeff, I think it is time for counseling.

First, the Banana Rant:
*This Sh** is bananas!
B-A-N-A-N-A-S* (gwen steffani fan are you?)

Now, you are handing over a notebook and saying "Here dearest, will you please tell me what it is that bugs you about me?"

I can't wait to see what happens next. Will Lisa tell the truth and let you know how that sound you make when you chew has driven her crazy for the last almost 17 years (um, just pulling from my own dream notebook)? Or will she simply say "He snores".

I'm on the edge of my seat!


Matt-Man said...

Number 6 is a some type of curved piece of metal on some kind of plastic base. Damn, I am sharp, baby. Cheers Jeff!!

Mel said...

k......I was all set to play until I read ron's answers.

Now I can't even look at number 4.

Inquirin' minds wanna know how long it took for the clerk to chase you from the store THIS time. LOL

buffalodickdy said...

I couldn't even blow up the pictures!

Leighann said...

Ron is right about the Vagina but I think I know whose vagina it is....

Heather Mills


Do I win a prize for that?

CrystalChick said...

Okay you were laying on the floor taking a picture of the underside of some shelving for #7 when Jacyln Smith, on her way to check the stock of her summer collection, walked by and you got the #4 shot. She's all prim and prissy, right?? I mean we know it doesn't belong to Britney or Lindsey or Paris.

R.E.H. said...

This was difficult... let me give it a shot.

1. Hangers.

2. Leather? shoes?

3. Closet door

4. Kitchen appliances? Like a water boiler?

5. I have NO idea...

6. Some weird toilet paper roll holder?

7. Stumped!

Can't wait to see the answers!

nitebyrd said...

Hmmmm ... it's too early in the morning. Hangers? Shoelace? A "Vent" cover? (We need to get Ron some vagina pictures, FAST!) The top of a wet wipe container? Fan? Vibrator holder? No clue on the last one.

You have a "theme" going, not monochromatic pictures.

I can't wait for the list either!

Anndi said...

LMAO @ Leighann... her knowledge of all things Heather kinda creeps me out.

Know what I like? One splash of colour in all the monochromatic pics... how so very artsy of you!

What I like even more? it's yellow.. like BANANAS!!!!

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha (dude, you are NEVER living that one down)

the teach said...

Jeff, you wrote:BTW I gave Lisa a note pad and pen and asked her to write down all the things I do that irritate or annoy her. (Yes, I like to walk that fine line between brave and stupid)

Now that is going too're asking for trouble! Let's see, I see a shoe with shoelaces, louvered door, a towel rack, fan, that's all I can tell. :)

Your "bananas" post and the following one were fun, a lot of fun. The best humor is self-effacing humor!

Jeff B said...

Jennifer- This is not an exercise for a couple with a struggling marriage, that's for sure. So far I can tell you her answers are pretty tame. I think she is testing the waters to see what my reaction to them is. We'll see how it plays out.

Matt- Sharp like a well used crayon.

Mel- Ron certainly set the stage for this round of answers didn't he?

Buffalo- Sorry, were the pics too small on your computer to see??

Leighann- That made me go Ho Ho Ho, and I'm not talking Santa Claus either. Prize worthy indeed.

Crystalchick- Ok you're right and now she'll be known as one of Jeffies Angels.

r.e.h.- How did you know #5 was an I don't know? Most people aren't aware they stock those.

Nitebyrd- I'll be taking up a collection later so we can buy Ron a couple of magazines for his re-education.

Anndi- Yeah..I was being artsy...yeah, that's the ticket. and yes I believe Travis said is best, "The banana will be your totem fruit."

Teach- Living on the edge I am. You have a couple correct so far.

Odat said...

I got 1,2,& 3, for #4 I put "Kinky" and then read ron's list...and was glad I wasn't the only one thinking this...lmao...
what the heck is that????? 6 is a plant holder...and I'm also stumped by 5 & 7.

Jeni said...

At first glance, I confess, I thought the same thing about #4 as Ron called it. Maybe we all just have perverted minds?

Um, I think #4 is an android's ear. But that's all I can think of! ;)

And of course you can use my photo! I'd be honored. Just click on it so you have the biggest version and wallpaper away!

Bond said...

Ron got here first...but that is what it looks doubt

now Jeff...first rule is never ever give her a pencil and paper and ask her to write down what annoys her about you...


Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Woman's hoo hoo? Hoo hoo? Bwahahahahaha. You are right the colors are boring. Well except for the shoelaces.

1. plastic hangers
2. shelaces
3. shutter
4. haven't a clue but am pretty sure it isn't a vigina
5. don't know
6. cup hook
7. don't know

Have a great weekend. :)

Jeff B said...

Odat- I think there's going to be a collective "ohhh, that's what that is" when everyone sees the full view of #4.

Jeni- You'd think I was running a porn site by the comments about poor #4. Bwhahahaha

Real LL- I'm afraid that's not it, but I do think I saw some aliens in there while I was walking around.

Bond- I knew it was a bad move when she got that evil twinkle in her eye as if to say, "Boy is this gonna be fun".

Sandee- If I was talking about Britney or Paris I would have called it a ho ho. Thanks for playing along.

Akelamalu said...

#1 DOH
#2 Shoelaces
#3 A louvre door?
#4 DOH
#5 DOH
#6 a towel hook?
#7 DOH

How long is Lisa's list? Will it run into two or more posts? ;)

Rhea said...

Oh, my gosh, the first comment, Ron, had me spitting out a drink all over the place. Sheesh. I wasn't ready for that.

Here are my guesses:

1. hangers
2. shoe laces
3. shutters
4. a plastic snail? toilet paper? I'm totally lost and confused.
5. bicycle wheel or fan
6. hand towel holder
7. wanes coating?

Some of those were pretty tricky!! Can't wait to find out the answers and to see Lisa's list...

Jeff B said...

Akelamalu- You got a couple. So far she only has seven things listed, but now my oldest son has got into the game and is "helping" her with suggestions.

Rhea- He certainly did set the tone for this go round! You were the only one to get #5. Wahoo

Rhea said...

Oh, wow, I'm so honored to have gotten #5 right!! What's my prize?

Jeff B said...

Rhea- "Johhny, tell her what she's won..." "It's a brand new car!!!"

Sounds like you're about ready for one.

Rhea said...

Wow, Jeff, thanks!! I do need a new one right about now. :o)
