Slow on the uptake
I was driving along a busy road and caught sight of this sign out of the corner of my eye:
The thoughts that went through my head, in order:
1. They're supersizing Lent? Extra-extra-large Lent? What does that mean?
2. Double-X rated Lent? Lent with wild sex orgies? That can't be right.
3. Hey, it's not even the right time of year for Lent! Why are they making such a big deal about Lent now?
4. Oh! It must be trying to say "Excellent"! Though, in that case, why are there two X's?
I still haven't figured out why there are two X's. Maybe if I watched TV I'd see a commercial and it would all be made clear.
Two X's because it is an extra extra large burger? I have to say the first thing I thought of was that McDonald's is now advertising that their food can make you extra large!
