HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for July 16, 2008 (1 of 2)


Yes, you're reading that correctly. The only words not covered up on this truck are the words HUMP [and] EASE. For real.

Do you think the moron who stuck this banner on the side of the truck was completely oblivious to what the phrasing on the truck said after the banner was placed? Or do you think whoever placed the banner has a sense of humor and thinks it's funny that the truck now says HUMP EASE? What the hell is HUMP EASE? Does it imply that this truck is easy to hump? Is this a whorish hussy of a truck? (I know, this isn't exactly bad grammar, but it's nonsensical enough that it may as well be...)

Thanks to DAVE for snapping a picture of this skanky, slutty semi!

I grew up on Route 66 so I know exactly where this came from...Campbell "66" Express had the slogan "Humpin' to Please". You can see a picture of one of their trailers here.

Good memory, and thanks for the info! :)

"Humpin' to Please" sounds even more sexual than "HUMP EASE," though...ha!

He just centered it. And I think the sexual connotation of the original was intentional.

Probably right on both counts, Toots! :)
