Dodger Thoughts: Where no one thinks about the Dodgers

Passing by a billboard for the upcoming movie “Safe House” Monday on Westwood Boulevard, my wife and I were having some fun with the slogan, which is just a little too obvious in its twistiness. We kept on thinking of different examples as we drove along …

NO UNDERGROUND TRAINS HERE

THESE CHICKENS DON’T COME HOME TO ROOST

It’s as if Linda Richman had taken over the studio marketing campaign. Discuss

    Hello Jon, I think I like this.

    By the way, I assume this goes without saying but in case it doesn’t, every Dodger Thoughts thread is an open chat thread.

    This also reminds me of my favorite all-time restaurant sign.

      My favorite was on the message sign at Twohey’s in Alhambra: “Soup is hash, only looser”

    It reminds me of the Monty Python sketch in the cheese shop that doesn’t have any cheese.

      “Trouble with the Curve,” as a title, telegraphs the Timberlake-Adams romance nicely.

        Or does it mean maybe Justin’s not a straight shooter, Peyronie’s-wise?

          Depending on how much trouble that curve is, he might literally be bringing sexy back.

        Telegraphing a curve usually winds up as a hit.

    This was not a billboard, but was an actual sign at P.O.P:

    `This Way to the Big Egress’.

    I am the Michael formerly known as miketink and I don’t know how to change my posting name.

      Looks like you logged in via Yahoo, so I’m guessing you would change it wherever you edit your Yahoo profile.  Alternatively, you can create a disqus account, and edit your profile on disqus.com.

      Mine was taken and I didn’t like the ESPN name I was forced to take.

    Long live Dodger Thoughts! I still wear my t-shirt with pride (usually while mowing my lawn).

    Question. How do new comments load here? Do you need to refresh or does it do it automatically?I’m liking the interface so far. 

    • http://ken.arneson.name/ Ken Arneson

      You need to manually refresh it yourself.  Disqus does have an auto-refresh feature, but it’s only for premium customers who pay $300/month.  I don’t think that’s happening.

    If I dared risk a rule 5 violation, I’d could come up with lots of these.

    Is everyone getting all fired up and excited to see Madonna perform at the Super Bowl??

      I wish she was playing against the Giants instead of the Patriots.
