An Absurd/Fun Phrase I Like

Posted by middlerage on August 1, 2013

I think it’s time to update the undertitle on my blog banner so I’m dialing the memory machine back to phrase that always gave me a giggle.  This isn’t an adage or an old saw, like the I normally talk about; this is actually a bit of graffiti I used to see in my travels just outside of Santa Fe, NM, way back in the 1980s. Some wag spray painted a large something (electrical substation? Fence? Concrete embankment? I don’t remember…) with this bon mot:

Give me three oranges for I must juggle

I can’t explain it, but that just tickled my cockles everytime I saw it.  It shall live on (temporarily) on my banner.
