This will probably sound a bit like Gallager or Stephen Wright or Andy Rooney....
Driving home today, I passed a road-side stand with a sign advertising its "HOME GROWN TOMATOES". Does anyone really think that they were grown in a home? Wouldn't you need a whole lot of sun lamps for that? So they aren't grown in the home - they were grown on a farm or a garden. Do garden grown tomatoes taste different from farm grown tomatoes? Is there an opposite of a farm or garden grown tomato - a factory produced tomato? Are there such things? I guess you could have tomatoes grown far away and trucked in and those probably wouldn't taste as good as just-picked tomatoes, but the sign didn't say that now did it? Were these tomatoes grown at the home of the guy minding the stand or someone else's? Would it make a difference?
Reminds me of when I drive in the north Georgia mountains and we pass those road side stands with the guys offering boiled peanuts and several of the letters on the signs are backwards. Am I supposed to think that since he can't form letters properly that he has better merchandise or that his prices will be lower since he has a learning disability (we used to say he was dumb, but that is not p.c. any more).
And why when people have signs for Yard Sales or Garage Sales, do they never ever intend to sell the Yard or the Garage? Shouldn't the signs really say "Low Cost Junk Redistribution"?
