Funny Vet Signs to Brighten Your DayPublished 6 months ago
Anglican Bishop and philosopher Dr. George Berkeley who lived during the 1600s, was once quoted as saying, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Dr. Berkeley answered his own question. As a Bishop of the Church, it was not that surprising that his answer was yes, God would have heard the sound.
The folks at the Carroll County Maryland Veterinary clinic also answered this age-old riddle which has caused debate for generations. They agree with Dr. Berkeley that it would make a noise. However, on their humorous roadside sign, their answer states that "If a tree falls in the forest and no ones there to see it, a chihuahua 500 miles away will bark at it." You can't beat that logic, so they must be right.
Imagine a time before populated cities and Google at your fingertips. This next sign reads, "The first person to hear a parrot talk was probably not OK for several days." Picture living in a remote village, and you are, perhaps, foraging for food in the forest on your own, and you hear talking from above in the trees in a strange inflection. Birds can sometimes be well camouflaged, so there is no guarantee that you would pinpoint the voice, and if you did (remember, no one else had heard a bird speak before), would you believe it? You might think you are going mad, and would the people in your village believe you?
A Greek historian, Ctesias of Cnidus, allegedly recorded the first case of a talking bird. It was a Plum-headed parakeet named Bittacus during the fifth century B.C.
"Dog is such a small word for something that takes up so much room in your heart." That is what the good people at the Carroll County Maryland Veterinary clinic had on their roadside sign. Man's best friend does seem to creep into our hearts and take up residence.
There is no straightforward explanation for the origin of the word Dog. There are several possible explanations, but the people at the veterinary clinic have a point about it being such a short word for something so integral in our lives. Although, just like their name, dogs are simple creatures who love unconditionally and make the best friends in the world. Another point many of you may like is that DOG spelled backward is GOD. Perhaps introducing dogs as pets was his divine intervention.
We have all experienced our dogs acting like garbage disposals, devouring everything in the blink of an eye, including substances not considered edible. For example, the plastic packaging the actual food came in. You would swear they are half-starved and uncertain when their next meal will be when they gobble the last piece of turkey you left on the counter while you fetched something to drink or when they nearly take your fingers off while accepting a treat.
Except if you include a tablet in their titbit, it is a different story, and they become the harshest food critics known to men with long teeth. The Maryland Veterinary clinic sums it up well when their sign reads, "My dog will eat anything until you put a pill in it, then he's Gordon Ramsay."
Here is a malapropism for the pet owners, not the pets themselves (generally speaking, pets love people's food too). In case you need a refresher on the meaning of malapropism, it is when a word is mistaken for a similar sounding word with a completely different meaning. Maryland Veterinary clinic's funny malapropism reads, "It amazes me how much exercise and extra fries sound alike." We are unsure how they knew we often confuse the two and end up at our favorite fast food outlet instead of the gym.
In case you were wondering, the word malapropism derives from a character named Mrs. Malaprop in Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1775 play The Rivals. Malapropisms have featured in various theatrical productions and films ever since, including Shakespeare and The Three Stooges. There are countless malapropisms examples. However, we love the Maryland Veterinary clinic's choice of extra fries.
"The inventor of the doorbell did not own a dog." Carroll County Veterinary Clinic has us wondering who invented the electronic doorbell. We bet many people guessed Alexander Graham Bell, which is incorrect. Mr. Doorbell invented the original telephone. The American scientist Joseph Henry developed the first electronic doorbell in 1831, nearly 80 years after Benjamin Franklin tied a key to a kite during a thunderstorm, or 31 years after Alessandro Volta, an Italian scientist, produced the first electric current.
English scientist Michael Faraday then discovered how to create an electric current by passing a magnet through a copper wire. The electric generator and electric motor both used this principle. Thomas Edison invented the practical light bulb in 1879 and built the first power station in 1882, so Joseph Henry was way ahead of him with his creation of the doorbell.
Have you ever participated in the age-old debate of where socks disappear once they enter the washer or dryer? Well, the Carroll County Maryland Veterinary clinic thinks they have the answer. Their sign suggests, "If you lose a sock in the dryer. It returns as a Tupperware lid that doesn't fit any containers." That is one possible answer, as there are often a few extra stray lids taking up space in the Tupperware draw, and there is always a sock that has gone astray.
Perhaps our pets somehow get into the machine and hide the socks, and the clinic is loyal to them and is a covering up for our furry friends. Who knows, but if you come across a viable explanation, please let us know so we can share it with our readers. Together we might solve the mystery!
"Cats can memorize 120 commands, but they don't want to." The Carroll County Veterinary clinic has an excellent understanding of cats if their sign is any indication. Indeed, cats can reportedly memorize up to 120 instructions. How anyone managed to get a cat to cooperate long enough to prove this is anyone's guess, but apparently, they can. So why do you ask, don't they?
Well, that is simple, they don't want to, and no amount of patience or treats can make them obey. Like anyone and any pet, cats have varied personalities and levels of aloofness. Instead of trying to train your cat, it might be easier to change your mindset. A dog or a bird, or a rabbit is your pet. A cat is not. You are its pet human, not the other way around.
Here's a cute one from the Carroll County Veterinary clinic to make you giggle. "When bees move into a new hive, do they have a house-swarming party? Oh dear, we can feel a whole lot of crazy puns and silly dad jokes coming on. Bee warned! Not to worry, though, because bee puns are good for you. They are high in vitamin Bee! Do you know what bees like to chew? Bumble gum!
What would you call bears without bees? Ears! OK, let's be serious now. Bees only have house-swarming parties in Stingapore. OK, just one more, what goes zzub-zubb through the air? A bee flying backward. We promise this is the last one. What happens to a bee after it dies? It returns as a zombee! We hope our silly jokes made you laugh.
This next one by the Carroll County Veterinary clinic is very open-ended and leaves a lot of self-interpretation. Their roadside sign and Instagram post read, "She believed she could, but her cat was asleep on her lap, so she didn't." What did she believe she could do? And did she have the TV remote or book within reach? What about something to eat or drink?
Although, does it really matter what she planned to do with her day if her allusive feline afforded her the privilege of spending time with him? You have to grab each moment when it comes because you don't know when next you may get to spend quality time with your beloved pet. All jokes aside, it is incredibly therapeutic to lay back and relax with the purring in the background and the constant needling of claws in your lap.
"There should be a calorie refund for things that don't taste as good as you expected." WOW! The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic in Maryland is one hundred percent correct on this one. How many times have you craved some treat or another and held back because you were watching your weight, and then when you finally cave and eat the whole packet, it was not as good as your expected, and you feel awful afterward?
The experience can be downright depressing and lead to comfort eating. Oh dear, isn't that how it started in the first place? Also, now that we think of it. Don't you agree that healthy foods like all vegetables, avocados, nuts, etc. should have negative calories? It would be nice. We will keep dreaming of a world when calories are a little nicer. It's time for chocolate cake.
Most dogs receive a treat after being well-behaved during their bathtime because, let's face it, bathing a dog can be a nightmare, especially, with the larger, weightier breeds, like a Rottweiler or Saint Bernard, and any encouragement is a good idea. So with the amount of verbal praise and the tasty treat that follows, we are sure that most dogs will feel like good girls and boys. Unless they made a run for it while you were reaching for the shampoo and then went and rolled in the smelly dead mole you didn't know was on the lawn, gross!
We know that nobody would actually confuse dogs' shampoo for people's shampoo, as the sign at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic in Maryland, which reads, "Accidentally used the dogs shampoo. Now I'm feeling like such a good girl." suggests, but we get the point.
For all the homebodies out there, we have a bunch of homely phrases you may like. But because we are highlighting the signs from the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic in Maryland, we need to accommodate pet lovers too. "There is no place like home." is probably number one because, at home, you have the freedom to do whatever you like in private with nobody around to judge.
"The home is where your heart is." A house is just a building. It is the people that reside there who make it a home. "Home is where the hair sticks to everything but the dog." Often our pets are the ones that make our homes more homely and lived-in. However, long-haired or shaggy dogs provide a part of a lived-in look we wish we did not have. Have you noticed how quickly the hair reappears after cleaning?
Okay, we have to agree with this one. For all sports enthusiasts running is fantastic. It gets your heart pumping and your muscles stretching. It improves your circulation and your health as a whole. It is exceedingly challenging when you need to motivate yourself whether to go running or not go running.
It makes you want to think up words to confuse with running, like "exercise" and "extra fries," so you can relax and eat something nice instead without sweating a bucket load and having flat hair. Okay, we can't think of a word right now that we can mistakenly hear instead of running next time someone suggests it, but if you have any ideas, we would love to hear from you. For all of you braving the run, don't forget to stay hydrated.
It sounds like the folks at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic want to make a racket in the mornings if you read anything into their latest sign. "I don't think it's fair that only roosters are allowed to start the day screaming." We get that it's good to have available options and equal rights, but we can think of better things to do than scream in the morning.
Sleeping in is probably on the top of the list with nothing else before a strong cup of Joe. No one should consider talking or engaging with us until we have finished our first cup of coffee. After that, a shower sounds about right, and perhaps a continental breakfast, maybe pancakes. Only then will the shouting and noise commence. It may even be unavoidable if the traffic is bad and people drive like idiots on the way to work.
"I started a dating site for chickens. It's not my day job. I do it to make hens meet." Cute, Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. We like that one. It's too funny and quite relevant in today's economy. Unfortunately, since Covid, we all need to make a little egg-stra cash. Our American Eggs-press is about to fly the coup if we don't give it a break.
For those people who are eggs-austed after an egg-stra hard day's work, we suggest having an egg-spresso to keep going. We commend Veterinarian Lynn Wimmer and the good people at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic for their egg-cellent posts that make us crack up and add a little egg-citement to our day. We love yolking around with you, so here is one more. What did the evil chicken lay? A deviled Egg.
We loved the following quote by the team at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. It read, "If a cookie falls on the floor and you pick it up. That's a squat, right?" Picking up a dropped cookie off the floor without a doubt counts as a squat, and when you lift the cookie to your mouth, that is a bicep curl. Is it not?
That's completely logical. It is positive reinforcement at its finest. Not only are you tidying up and discouraging pests and rodents by not leaving food around, but you are exercising and receiving a reward in one go. You can go one step further and use your favorite treat to entice all sorts of aerobic exercise, just like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey. But swap the carrot with cake for better efficiency.
Where do the folks from the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic get their quotes? "I told my suitcase no vacation this year. Now I'm dealing with emotional baggage." It would make a good line for a stand-up comedian. What happened when the baggage tried to sue its owner? It could not find a lawyer that would take its case.
Why did the elephant not want to board the airplane? He would have to leave his trunk in the cargo hold. Okay, the veterinary clinic's joke was much better than ours, but we tried. We don't have a tote bag of funny one-liners, so we will take a break from this one and vacate to the next slide.
We can see the merit in the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic post, "Whoever said that diamonds are a girl's best friend never owned a dog." We agree that "Man's best friend" trumps "A girl's best friend" as it encompasses all human beings, including men, women, and children. However, there is room for both, so don't be hasty just because you love your pooch.
Marilyn Monroe is the perfect example. In the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Marilyn sang the song, "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend," but Marilyn loved dogs. When she was a child, she had a black and white dog called Tippy. Marilyn also owned a spaniel named Ruffles and a collie called Muggsie. Marilyn named her Chihuahua Josepha. She and her husband Arthur Miller had a basset hound called Hugo. She even had a white poodle which Frank Sinatra purchased for her.
We see that the folks at Carroll County Veterinary Clinic understand what it is like to need your morning fix of caffeine before you can function. They put a name to it in case anyone was unaware of the correct terminology. "Procaffeinating. The tendency to not do anything until you have coffee." We think there are most definitely worse things than procaffeinating.
It is short-term, only lasting as long as the coffee drought. There is an easy and readily available fix, coffee. And although it is usually a long-term condition among adults, it is manageable and without a doubt preferable to procrastination which is not as easily solved and affects all age groups and demographics. The moral of the story is to plan and have the coffee machine set so that when you wake up, it is percolating, and you won't waste any time.
We have a couple of theories that at least one of the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic's staff members is not getting enough sleep. Our first guess would be one of them is a relatively new parent and has not adjusted to the shock of not sleeping for longer than a few hours at a time. The second is that maybe there is a new litter of kittens, or any other animal baby, that requires hand rearing and feeding every two to three hours.
Those are the two standout theories, but it could be any number of things we won't go into right now. You may be wondering why we feel they are sleep deprived. It is their sign that led us to this conclusion. It read, "If you love someone, let them nap." Maybe they require baby sitter or pet sitter volunteers.
"I Gotta Feeling" that the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic folks were ready to "Feel The Beat" when they added this next one. "The Black Eyed Peas can sing us a song, but the Chick Peas can only hummus one." Do you get it because the Black Eyed Peas is a spectacular band featuring Will.i.am and Fergie and yummy hummus is a Middle Eastern delight, made from chickpeas and a few other ingredients?
Let's see if we can come up with a Black Eyed Peas / Hummus-inspired recipe that makes sense. "Let's Get It Started," add a drained can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and salt, with a splash of water, to a food processor. "Hit It," "Pump It Harder," and "Boom Boom Pow" got to get rid of "My Humps" (lumps). That's it, simple as that. Congrats!
Have you ever been put so thoroughly in your place? Like you were being laughed at in a very condescending way? If your answer is no, you probably don't own a cat, and if you do, you most likely have not tried to insert your authority over him. The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff know what we mean. Their next sign, "I told my cat you are not the boss of me. He disagreed." explains it all.
Trust us. It's not worth even trying. Just face facts, your cat rules the roost. Be happy your cat allows you to co-inhabit the home alongside him and affords you the privilege of providing for him. We love our feline friends, and we know we are exaggerating. We agree they are not as bad as we make them out to be, but we have a point.
Here is a slightly different phrase from the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic, which is open to interpretation. "You can be a night owl and an early bird if your sleep schedule is messed up enough." Do you suppose that if you are still awake when the sun comes up, you could still be an early worm, even if you haven't been to sleep yet? You would be a night owl from your all-nighter.
Or do you think they mean that you wake early some mornings and go to bed early, and at other times you stay awake all night and sleep most of the day? Whatever their thought process, we guess it is possible. However, usually, people fit into one or the other category. Which are you, the early bird or the night owl? We would love to hear from you.
The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic provides an artful warning to all cat owners, "Having cats in the house is like living with art that throws up on the carpet." We can't think of a single animal as regal as a cat. Even the ancient Egyptians revered them. The sphinx is a creature with a human head, a lion's body, and a falcon's wings. The ancient Greeks believed that the sphinx was treacherous and unforgiving, that she would kill and consume her prey if they could not solve her riddles.
However, let's get back to the domestic cat and the vomiting warning. If your cat goes from a majestic stance to bugged-out eyes and it is salivating, we suggest you grab it as quickly as possible, with long arms, and race it outdoors. It is a sure sign of an impending furball on its way.
We enjoyed this hilarious one-liner from the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. It read, "What kind of Dr. is Dr. Pepper? A Fizzician." It also inspired our funny side, and we feel obliged to share a couple more Dr. Pepper jokes with you. So here goes, Where did Dr. Pepper study to get his degree? The University of Minnesoda, of course. What was his specialization? That is easy, Fizzyology!
To everyone who mistakenly guessed that he studied at the University of Pensacola, we are sorry, but you are wrong. Many people think that Dr. Pepper is a cola, but it is not. A few of our favorite fast food and beverage providers hold their recipes under lock and key (well in a volt) in two locations, Dallas and Texas, and Dr. Pepper are one of them. Coca-Cola and Kentucky Fried Chicken are the other two.
We apologize in advance because this one-liner from the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic is a bit of a miss. "If a plant is sad, do other plants photosympathise with it?" We are sure you all get the intent, even if the punchline is somewhat lame. Let's ignore the attempted humor for a moment and concentrate on the scientific aspects of the message. Scientists have discovered that plants communicate below ground. Plants have a symbiotic relationship with fungi called mycorrhizal.
Their root systems use the fungi to interact and share nutrients, so we guess it is possible to also sympathize with each other. Research has shown that plants can become stressed from overstimulation, but water stress is less prevalent when mycorrhizae are present. So next time you are too lazy to water your plants, remember you may be upsetting a whole colony of plants.
We are sitting on the fence with this next one. Tell us if you think the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic got it right or not with their one-liner, "Jellyfish are just wet ghosts." Okay, they did not come up with it themselves, but they did pass it along. The phrase has been around for quite some time, and numerous online sites advertise the sale of various t-shirts with the saying.
We also noticed online that a slightly more mature site refuted the saying and created a different one-liner. Their interpretation goes something like this, "Jellyfish are just jellyfish. Wet ghosts are what you get from a sex dream with a ghost." It also begs to reason if a jellyfish is a wet ghost, does that mean a phantom or a spirit is a dry jellyfish?
The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic is back on solid ground with this one. Animals are something they are 100% knowledgeable about. Their sign reads, "If it barks or purrs, it is 100 percent good and reliable." We back them fully with this point of view.
There is only so much space on their sign, and we wanted to include a few more of our favorites. So here goes, "If it barks, purrs, sings, chirps, quacks, gobbles, tweets, or bleats, it is 100 percent good and reliable." However, beware of the wilder side. If you hear growls, roars, trumpets, rattles, hisses, or even buzzes, be cautious and if you hear a hyena laugh, run it is not a laughing matter.
"When does a joke turn into a dad joke? When it becomes apparent." Ha Ha! Sorry dads, but that is actually quite a good one. We don't know what happens when men become fathers. They somehow manage to lose the ability to tell a decent joke. All their jokes sound (at the risk of sounding outdated) corny or lame. It is strange because it doesn't seem to happen to women who gain abilities when becoming new mothers.
Have you noticed how good our moms are at juggling, fixing things that we are sure they knew nothing about before they had us, and pretty much being all-around superheroes? We often wonder how the folks at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic come up with such diverse jokes and phrases for their signs. Do you think they brainstorm in weekly meetings or maybe outsource to professionals?
We loved this next post by the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff. It made us happy and smile from ear to ear. "Dogs are living proof that good still exists in the world." Everybody needs extra love in their lives, and dogs are the masters of unconditional love. After watching the international news, we realize it has become even more apparent how much we need to focus on the good in the world.
We wish that instead of the horrific devastation surrounding us, like the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, a mass shooting at a daycare that resulted in over 30 deaths in Thailand, water shortages, and middle eastern conflict, the world could experience positive and happy events. We wouldn't mind hearing how rescue dogs saved victims from an earthquake or sniffed out a gas leak saving hundreds of people.
The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff were officially out of ideas when they posted the sign, "Don't be sad, because sad spelled backwards is das and das not good." Don't get us wrong, they have come up with some crackers that have left us and others in stitches, but some of their jokes fall a little flat.
This one, in particular, makes us sad because "das" how bad it is. Oh no! It might be contagious because now we are making lame jokes. You win some, and you lose some. Hopefully, they will have their morning coffee and a healthy dose of inspiration before coming up with any future quips. The ones about animals are our favorite. Which ones do you prefer?
The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff found another way of expressing most cats' natural tendencies when they wrote, "We're sorry, said no cat ever." Let's recap on the pretentious behavior most of our favorite felines exhibit. Picture Garfield if you don't own a cat (we are sure you are familiar with him) from Jim Davis's cartoon Garfield. Can you imagine him ever apologizing even if it is obvious he is wrong?
Actually, do you think he would ever admit to being wrong even if all there was evidence stacked against him? The answer is a categoric NO! Garfield would find any reason to blame the dog Odie for his wrongdoing, and if that didn't work, he would find some way to make it John's fault. We love cats and don't think they are always aloof. It is just that they are so good at it.
We were not that impressed with this next one, but it did give us a craving for Mexican food. It also made us want to add our bad dad jokes about nachos. Here is the crack the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic posted, "Nachos are just tacos that don't have their life together." And now for our attempts. My friend and I had an argument, and he asked if I wanted to taco-bout it. I replied, "I'm nacho friend anymore."
Did you know taco cat spelled backward is still taco cat? Did you hear about the new Mexican restaurant down the road? It is the taco of the town! Why should you never confide in a taco? Because they always spill the beans! Just one more, and then we will stop. Taco jokes can be so corny they get a bad rap.
Sometimes in life, we need to laugh at ourselves. The joke that a Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff member posted is the perfect punchline to end a clumsy accident. "I do all my own stunts, but never intentionally." It is good to poke a bit of fun at yourself from time to time. Usually, when these things happen, you have two choices, laugh or cry, depending on how sore it is, and sometimes both.
We choose laughter every time if we can help it. Does anyone know what happens if a staff member gets injured at a veterinary clinic? Do they go to the emergency room or save time and money by handling it in-house? There can't be a huge difference between operating on an animal and a human, can there?
"If you are being chased by a pack of taxidermists, do not play dead." This sound advice is one of the best jokes the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff has posted. Some animals feign death or "play possum" when threatened. When a possum is attacked or scared, it doesn't just pretend to die. It experiences an involuntary reaction and goes into a catatonic state, much like when feinting goats feint.
The possum's breathing will appear to fail, it will drool, and its tongue will hang out of its mouth. It will also poop itself and be unresponsive if you poke it. Here is some advice if anything other than a taxidermist is chasing you. Stand still if it is a bear. If a mountain lion stalks you, wave your arms, speak loudly and firmly, and never make eye contact with a gorilla.
It sounds like the folks at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic have enlisted the aid of the animals to create their roadside and Instagram jokes. This next one reads, "If my ceiling fan could hold my weight, I would never be bored again." It would be fun to try for a while if it could hold our weight, but probably for two minutes max.
We can't imagine a human wanting to do it for long. It might even make you vomit to be spinning round and round. Can you imagine trying to hold on at full speed? You would need to pad the walls and remove all furniture. Otherwise, there would be a lot of broken bones. Okay, now we can picture a bunch of drunken guys attempting this, which unfortunately reminds us of the vomit factor again.
If the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic posted, "Not sure what's scarier at this point, taking my temp or weighing myself." during the Covid pandemic and lockdown, it makes a lot of sense. We think the most conscientious person put on a minimum of ten pounds during the lockdown period. We won't even mention the weight gain the rest of us suffered. Restrictions that hampered outdoor activities and exercise and having nothing to do but try out new recipes took a toll on most of our waistlines.
Then when the strict controls lifted slightly, and we could brave the grocery store in our full protective clothing, we had our temperature taken at every entrance. We remember holding our breath while waiting for the all-clear. It was a scary time that lasted longer than we expected, with devastating effects. Now it's back to the gym.
How many of you can relate to this next post? We certainly can, although we sat at home for two years, not one. The Carroll County Veterinary Clinic staff wrote, "I'm not adding this year to my age. I didn't use it." We are guessing they wrote it during the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown when we were all restricted to our homes. Although we don't want to undermine the tragedy and loss people experienced during Covid, there were a few positives to the whole lockdown.
The most noteworthy positive was the quality time we spent with our family. We also discovered some wonderfully tasty dishes and are grateful for the internet to search for the recipes and interact with family and friends we could not see. Also, our home and yard have never looked this good. The DIY projects were fun for the whole family.
We are ending our last slide with another pandemic-related post from the good folks at the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. It reads, "Before I agree to 2021, I need to see some terms and conditions." We are sure that if given a choice, most people would have elected to skip 2021 altogether. Unfortunately, sometimes it doesn't matter what the terms and conditions are. You have to accept them because there is no alternative but to carry on.
There probably is not a person in the world who has not felt the effects of Covid and the pandemic. Let's try to end on another positive. Covid has changed how businesses operate, and we think it is, by and large, a good thing. The added use of technology for online meetings has eliminated the need for unnecessary traveling, thereby reducing carbon emissions.
