    I went to www . discoverwhatstrue . orq just like you said to, but I got back a “orq is not a proper ending” and the Internet laughed at me.

    Maybe next time you spam some garbage, you figure out how to make an upside down G instead of a Q!!!!!

    I hate spammers, almost as much as I hate PvP rogues. Oh, I went there!

  4. #3 is so funny. some of those church signs are hilarious :D

  5. Kentucky sucks…and licks, apparently.

  6. Okay, I loved the church one, but ‘Ho rs’ and ‘Pho King’?
    Do they even count? :P

  7. @mcowles i thought the same thing haha

    and, at risk of sounding ignorant, what are PvP rogues?

  8. #1 sucked
    @Miss Shegas, Snails? Really? They taste horrible!
    @4fingeredpyro fuck you and your spam!
    @lexluther http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Player_versus_player

  9. I’ll jump on the ignorance bandwagon lexluther; I don’t know either. Please to explain, mcowles?

  10. @lexluther

    Hmmm. I decline to answer that on the grounds that the answer may further incriminate me. I believe that’s the 8th amendment in the Bill of Rights within the World (of Warcraft), which is what I was referencing.

    Yeah…. sorry about that….

  11. @BritishHobo, “Pho” is pronounced “Fuh” in Vietnamese, so it’s “Fuh-king.”

  12. @mcowles
    I wasn’t spamming, just trying to give a few good laughs.

  13. @4fingeredpyro

    SPAMMER!

    These were some good pics Lamebook! :)

  14. #3 FTW!

  15. @4fingeredpyro

    Ok… I’ll give you the Jerry Lewis Benefit of the Doubt and take back my anger. I don’t think I’ll go to the site though.

    Haha, I think we’re all jaded, due to that guy selling handbags for days on end.

    Oh, and about the actual pictures… I guess the baby rape one is the only funny one, even though I’m sure someone just grabbed it from another website, similar to this one.

  16. Pho-King is a common restaurant name. Broccoli Rabe is the name marketers gave Broccoli Rape, because, well, that should be obvious. But many (especially Chinese) stores still list it as Rape. Word association aside, baby rape is phoking delicious.

  17. The church sign is great, and I’ll take it under advisement.

    But the most amusing thing on opening this page, is not the post, it’s the American Apparel ad spouting “Romp around” in a Tri-blend high-waist brief romper. Now that thing is funny.

  18. I do need a new romping outfit, but I was considering a dual-blend. Should I reconsider?

  19. I wish it would come up every time, it’s a lovely shade of grey. It just might be your new must-have item, heisenberg.

  20. @heisenberg: rape is an actual vegetable, though.

  21. I keep getting the reversible petticoat ad, which suits my figure not to well.

  22. I’ve been to Big Bone Lick State Park. It is pretty close to Cincinnati. Also in that area are three historic hamlets:
    1) Beaverlick. You probably won’t see any signs for it, but there’s still a Beaverlick Baptist Church, at least one other church and probably several stores with that name.
    2) Sugartit. Yes, you read that right. Unfortunately there are no signs left for it, as the hamlet has basically been swallowed by the town of Union.
    3) Rabbit Hash. There is still a Rabbit Hash General Store, and I have a t-shirt to prove it. ;)
    Big Bone Lick was by far my favorite though.
    Further down 75 you eventually pass Suck Creek, Tennessee. I’m sure there are a lot of other oddly named places along the way that just don’t make it onto the signage.

  23. On the subject of Pho, there is a chain called “What the Pho”. We have them here in Atlanta.

  24. clay_man, you’ve just not had them done right, then. Disgusting, but delish!
    Excited about being BEN again, had a clever failure, just put the first thing that popped into me twisted, hungry head.

    Thanks for the wiki definition of PvP.

  25. @syntaxevasion: I did not mean that broccoli rabe was the name that marketers gave to the sexual violation of broccoli, I meant the vegetable.

  26. Miss Shegas, it’s been a while, hope you’re well. I’ve noticed you BENNING of late.

  27. @ Mcowles….nice PvP rogue reference there…well played!!

  28. Oy, wordy! Nice to see you – I’ve missed our inappropriate banter, and the ire it generated. :)

    Never understood the “first” thing before, but the moment I saw the opportunity I felt compelled. Compelled by Ben, I tell you.

  29. I live right next to that Pho King. I thought it was the funniest thing when they were first building it. It’s still pretty funny. Do they not realize what it sounds like when they name their restaurant something like that?! Or maybe they do it on purpose to attract people.

  30. I miss it too, Miss, but I’ve been torn so many new assholes as a result of said inappropriateness, the body needs to heal, but as sure as night follows day, it will return.

  31. @FHsGirl

    Have you tried the Pho King Dumplings? Or the Pho King Chef’s Special?

    They’re Pho King Delicious!

    I’m sorry, that’s a lie. I have no knowledge of the quality of the food (either for the good or for the bad) of anything served within this particular Pho King restaurant.

  32. CommentsAtLarge

    @ Miss Shegas

    The power of Ben compels you. The power of Ben compels you. There, consider yourself Ben-orcised ;)

  33. Love that, Comments.

  34. @mcowles

    I actually haven’t had the chance to eat there yet! All my friends that have been there love it though and they keep going back.

  35. 4fingeredpyro, this is for you:

  36. CommentsAtLarge

    thanks Wordyperv – and heal well my dear (metaphorically speaking of course)

  37. Going to church instead of staying in bed:

    Priest: “Oh God, the glory!”
    Altar Boy: “Oh God, the horror!”
    Vatican: “Oh God, the lawsuits!”

  38. There is a Vietnamese restaurant near where I used to live (and which I frequented *quite* often) called Hong Long. Every time I mentioned it, people would giggle…

  39. I bet the rest area at Exit 172 is always out of paper towels.

  40. Love this site? Check out http://foundthatguy.tumblr.com/

  41. @mcowles:

    And what, do tell, is wrong with PvP rogues >.>

    /snicker

  42. FlapjacksAreAmazing

    or you could go to the town of Fucking in Austria, followed by a brief trip to Petting and Kissing in Germany

  43. Ahh Big Bone Lick, I’ve seen the sign but never ventured off the highway as I thought it was a gay truckstop. More humor from the wikipedia page:

    “Big Bone Lick State Park is located at Big Bone in Boone County, Kentucky. It is located on Beaver Road and between the communities of Beaverlick and Rabbit Hash.”

  44. @Mai Tai

    They’re invisible bastards that shank you in the back with a poisoned knife and then disappear/run away.

    /twix

  45. Something tells me that someone rigged the Hooters sign on purpose…..

  46. LMAO @ Big Bone Lick!!|| Baby Rape?? O_O || Church people are really aggressive, hey? Ha ha ha || Thanks to the one who explained “Pho King” as I was really lost…

  47. Xepher, that Hooters is in my town, pretty sure you can’t rig signs like that. I think it was just bad timing with some of the bulbs going out.

  48. Exit 69 on I-75 in Lower Michigan is, “Beaver Road”. Exit 168 on I-75 is “Big Beaver Road”. I’ll take pics on my way next time…Love the hooters sign!

  49. I live not too far from Big Bone Lick. Best thing ever is that you have to go through Beaver Lick to get to Big Bone Lick. -I find that kinda awesome.

    Also, the mayor of Rabbit Hash is a dog. Yes, I said a dog.

  50. I’ve lived by Big Bone Lick my whole life and have never thought anything about it. Now that I look at it, though, I suppose it is a bit dirty.

  51. Shadowmoon, anyone?.. :D
