Zen Monday: #103


Once again it's Zen Monday, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. There's no competition, no right or wrong. We're here to have fun.

I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the discussion. I don't want you thinking I'm into mind control or anything

Out of frame nocking sound is heard.

Resident(s): "Yes?"

Government Senseless Bureau: "We saw you sign, and, um, we're unwilling to help"

Resident(s): "Rats...."

PS. Petrea, I left you a note at PA's Rant, Chant, and Chat room.

I've found that the old stand-by, a helmet made of crinkly aluminum foil, keeps out those pesky mind control waves. Works even better with a pair of pink glitter deely-bobbers to further confuse the air. Myself, my cat and turtle wear them to store and we are completely un-noticed by agents.

Um, maybe this person is hearing radio broadcasts through his teeth? Or the car radio?

I can assure you ... I’ve never seen a car with that language here ... and it’s red!

On seeing the cry for help, PETA activists stormed the car to release the lab rats and guinea pigs, but were disappointed to find only one rather odd human.

Take your meds even when you're feeling better.

"And please help me build and buy a garage." This guy gives all Californians a bad name. Charles Manson still has followers.

Kenneth, what is the frequency??

Petrea said...

Ha!

Please forgive me for joining in so late. I just got back from the City Council meeting and I'm beginning to understand how this person feels.

It's nice to come home and read your comments and have a good laugh. Thank you all so much. Now I've got to go make a post, then get some sleep!

I have to laugh. In the parking lot of our local Trader Joe's, there sits a car most of the time. A black and white. It USED to have lettering like this all over it---something about "Erotic Police" "69" and some other interestingly suggestive stuff. A few months back, the stickers were removed. I suspect someone complained and DMV sent a letter to the kid who drives it to remove the offensive material.

Wonder if DMV can send out a social worker to this guy's house to help him? Altho, with budget cuts, I suspect he might just get the aluminum hat treatment that Anon suggested.

The frequency is 4.1GHz.

Sigh. I wish every day could be Zen Monday.

Checked for website shown on car bumper and found it doesn't exist, unfortunately compounding the car-owner's frustration if no one's looking at website. (They're not!)

Many listings shown for people who feel they're subjected to "electronic harassment."
There seem to be a lot of people who think that E-mails not acknowledged/received, bits of conversations overheard in bookstores, funny looks in the grocery -- in short, anything and everything constituting our everyday interactions with people--could be construed as "electronic harassment."

While it seems somewhat possible,this would involve long-term cooperation and conspiracy on a monumental scale. And if anyone has worked in a bureaucracy, you know the paperwork involved would make the harassment conspiracy virtually undoable, with even the aluminum foil hat requiring a co-pay of some kind.

Unfortunately, the person who needs the aluminum hat may very well be ignored, while the funds to fill in and pave over a lake may just get every $$ required to complete the task. Yeh, it's the council and not social services, but the facial expressions described of some members are the same everywhere.

Anonymous: funny.

Yes, far easier to imagine a conspiracy than to contrive one.
