World Naked Gardening Day is May 1st

Saturday is World Naked Gardening Day. Yes, it’s really a holiday. Thank you Tim from Florida for letting me know. This is the kind of news I love sharing.

The holiday is the first Saturday of May so this year Saturday, May 1, 2021 will mark the 17th annual World Naked Gardening Day. While I don’t expect this will be observed at the communal city gardens in Boston, I do wonder if anyone reading with a private garden or backyard intends to “be at one with nature”.

The holiday was started in 2005 by Mark Story in Seattle, WA and has grown into a global phenomenon. I was surprised to read Boston was ranked as one of the top 12 cities in the US for observing World Naked Gardening Day in 2020. I should clarify that the benchmarks that placed Boston at the 11th best city were based off of climate measurements.

Let me know if you intend to participate in World Naked Gardening Day 2021. Leave a comment in this post or send a discreet photo to of you gardening in the buff.

Much thanks to my friend Joel who is visiting Bangkok and shared this photo.

Sign language

sign language, grammarWhile attending a work dinner in San Francisco, I had to go to the bathroom. I will admit I was more than a little surprised to see this sign. While I know exactly what they mean, I can’t help but think “shame on you.”

I was a bit dumbfounded and wondered does the manager think that this is the plural for the word man or have apostrophes become passé in California?

ProblemsMy friends Ben and Brett are traipsing through South Africa. Earlier this week they saw this advertisement and emailed me to share on my blog.  I love how the same office for penis enlargement is also a resource for “all other problems.”

SportsIt has been a while since I’ve posted a hmm… post but I think you’ll agree that this is deserving.  Check out this clip of these two Rugby players below.  The guy on the left is Willie Mason and the player who walks up to him is Korbin Sims.

Maybe this is how Rugby players say hello.

comfyballsI absolutely love this.  The marketing is hilarious.  My favorite part is the fact that the underwear fits packages of all sizes.  It makes me wonder if Norwegian men have exceptionally large testicles where this might be an issue.comfyballs

Norwegian men are encouraged to contact me directly with any physical evidence they would like to share. I don’t speak Norwegian (I think that is what the language is called) but here is the website.

humor, hmm..., cheeseEarlier this month I was at a “fancy” French restaurant in Boston’s Back Bay with a bunch of marketing colleagues.  One of my co-workers started to chuckle and suggested we check out the cheese menu.  I’m not exactly sure that the chef understands the innuendo or how gross that sounds.

I’m not a fashionista bEldridge Cleverut even I can see this is a fashion faux pas.  Check out the “Penis Pants”, conceived of and designed in the 1970s by Eldridge Clever.

The pants are designed with two styles, one with an oval-shaped pouch and the other (as shown on the left) with a “tubular shaped extension for the man’s penis and an adjoining smaller pouch for his testicles.”

Even more flummoxing is the tag line in the print commercial, “You’ll be the cock of the walk…” for realz.

Things that make bosguy go hmm...The Welsh Food Truck, Dirty Bird, has raised a few eyebrows with their new logo.  Dirty Bird insist that any similarity is coincidental and very much in the eye of the individual.

Oh brother, I think I’d respect them more if they simply owned up to their not so subtle advertising.  Do you believe that the logo design is supposed to be an innocent picture of a rooster with no hidden meaning?  Check out some of their advertising here.

Happily Filled

No Vacancy SignLast week when I was walking around in Ogunquit, Maine I saw this sign.  I must have been in a pervy state of mind, because I laughed out loud when I saw how The Sparhawk chooses to let people know they have no vacancy.

The marketing professional in me immediately thought of suggesting the following tagline to the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce, Get Happily Filled in Ogunquit.
