Tradesmen

People sometimes choose funny ways to advertise their trade: this is the van of a local plumber.Here we have a house painter......and some building contractors.

These are really wonderful. I am not sure that I would like Laurel and Hardy to take care of anything around my house. ;)

I like these. I always enjoy seeing some humor in advertisements.

Not sure the last one inspires confidence in taking this contractor.

Too funny. I like looking at the cleverness people have in advertising. although I don't know about hiring Stan and Ollie as contractors. HaHa!! MB

Birdman said...

I agree. Sometimes there's just no explaining advertising. Sometimes strange what people will advertise with. A head scratcher!

I love the last one! I wonder if those cartoons look like the owners? :D

No one should care what I think about this, but the increasing "cartoonification" of the adult world seems so retrogressive to me. And yes, I do have a sense of humor. :-D

Not sure I would trust the contractors with the pink sign. I like the plumber and the painter though!
