How My Sister’s Brain Works

18 Jun

A few weeks ago, I shared how MY brain works. For contrast, here’s my sister. While I don’t have her inner-monologue to accompany this, I’m pretty that sure what you see is what you get. And if you don’t have Facebook or understand targeted ads and how inane they are: this will make no sense so you might just want to skip it. Anyway… 

This sponsored ad apparently appeared on my sister’s Facebook page recently. The comment/caption at the top is from her:

When I saw it, I thought it was an astute observation: a bucket with a spigot does NOT exactly spell fun. I should’ve realized it was the first indication that she had an axe to grind with their message.

Have I mentioned that Alicia knows Photoshop? And is like a dog with a bone when something sets her off? So while the ad above is real, it prompted her to create the following spoofs, which she then posted in rapid succession:

Calling all party people, indeed. Too bad I just missed her birthday. Otherwise, I would’ve sent her a rock.

And somehow, I think she would’ve actually found it wicked sick.

    I think the word “spigot” is fun. But that’s the only fun thing I see about the bucket. Your sister clearly thinks too much for the people in charge of marketing the Fun Bucket.

    That sounds dirty. In a vague way.

    Oh, I guess I read this wrong. I thought it meant it was just for fun drinks. You know, like it would come out with its own little umbrella!

      Now THAT would be an invention I’d be interested in…

    Seriously, your sister rules. I’m going over to her house so she can teach me Photoshop. Can I just get her address please?

      Sorry – these skills of hers can go toward good or evil on a moment’s notice. I’m not comfortable brokering that.
