Answers to Past Articles — Part 11: Reader Edition
In past articles in which your participation was not only requested but also helpful and humorous, I did not give the answers to questions which I have posed to you; so this article is the eleventh of a series to do just that — along with links to the aforementioned articles…
Answers to Past Articles — Part 11: Reader Edition
…and the links are embedded in the titles of each section as well as within the sections themselves; so please click on the links in each section to take you to the original article — and this edition is entirely comprised of photographs which were contributed by readers of The Gate.
The Favorite Answer will usually be the correct answer by a reader of The Gate — along with a Favorite Comment from the same article which I found to be funny or informative.
A bagel establishment offering a super bowel party platter is not particularly appetizing for customers. The anonymous reader of The Gate who sent in this photograph never told me whether you get 20 percent off of the cost of a super bowel party platter — the word your is in a rather strange position at a precarious angle — or if you get 20 percent off of your large intestine…?!?
Favorite answer by Mike: “BOWEL Movement?”
Favorite comment by Jim: “The discount should be larger for a party platter that promises you regular trips to the restroom.”
When in the city of Cumming in Georgia, you can get a large coffe of any size for only $1.49. After this article was posted, NB_ga — who is a reader of The Gate — has reported that the sign has since been corrected to “$1.49 Any Sized Iced Coffee”…
…and wondered if the owner, manager, or employee who changed that sign must also a reader of The Gate and saw the original article.
Favorite answer by Donottd: “1. Any size and then large
2. Coffee spelling”
Favorite comment by Kenneth M Yates: “I”m sorry, we’re out of our $1.49 Large Any-Sized Iced Coffe. However, you can get Any-Sized Coffee for only $2.99!”
Speaking of the word your, it was a banner day when the reader of The Gate who is identified only as Frank Furter and declined to give a location sent in the photograph shown above. Amazing!
Samuel must have been embarrassed by the misspelling; but one day he will likely be laughing about it once this incident is part of his days of yore.
Favorite answer by r m h: “the sign needs an apostroph(and an)”e”!”
Favorite comment by Mark Looney: “As the first in the family to make it to your high school graduation – “Your Amazing”.”
A restaurant which is located in Woodstock in Georgia had modifications done inside of it by members of the staff as a result of the current 2019 Novel Cororonavirus pandemic; and a reader of The Gate — who is identified only as BLT — sent the photograph shown above of one of those modifications.
I thought to myself whether this photograph was taken in a place where cars drive on the left side of the road; and then I thought to myself why the inbound arrow is on the opposite side of the door where the handle is located. This convoluted setup reminded me of the game Twister.
Favorite answer by ChuckMO: “1. Two people shouldn’t using the door at the same time anyway (One in one out)
2. Do they make wheelchairs that narrow?”
Favorite comment by John Donat: “if someone in a wheelchair was the first visitor of the day no one else would be able to use the restroom and what would the business do with the person in the wheelchair when it was time to close. Because if that person did what he was instructed to do wouldn’t he just be going in circles in the doorway. I think the real problem is that the doorway is not wide enough and when he starts the circle he would get jammed up in the doorway causing people to clime over him and that action could give him the virus because we’re touching him in the process and he could die from it. I wonder if the employee that put that down could be charged with murder”
The photograph shown above was taken earlier this year on New Jersey Highway 23 northbound in Butler by a reader of The Gate who wishes to remain anonymous — but even funnier than imagining getting a pizza along with a muffler for your vehicle is that the name of the pizza establishment is spelled differently on both signs: is it Buonasera or Bounasera? Can the take-out delivery be picked up at curbside? Is the entire enterprise for lease?
Favorite answer by Mark J Dumic: “Buonasera is misspelled in the banner at the bottom of the sign. Also, the restaruant advertises delivery and take-out but only displays part of a phone number.” Note from Brian: Actually, the telephone number and address were intentionally removed from the photograph by me prior to posting the original article.
Favorite comment by WR2: “Meineke doesn’t actually take care of your car, and is never in the center.”
