  • Uni's In Adds, Movies and ECT.

    Flipping through the Ikea 2012 Catalog I saw a add on page 46 that has a giraffe Uni in it.


    I think its like when you buy a certain car and all of a sudden you see them everywhere.

    I thought it might be cool to start a thread where you post an obscure Uni spotting.

    At the Burlington Coat Factory in Dentin, TX there is/was a poster in the men's suit section that shows a man in a suit, carrying a briefcase, and riding a unicycle.

      Dear God, where do I start?

      The errant apostrophe sticks out like a thorn in one's palm, as does the misspelled contraction of advertisement.

      Those unnecessary capital letters throttle my eyeballs like a boxer does a speed bag.

      What really makes me barf... that misspelled-acronym-of-a-latin-noun-in-all-caps ending.

      I'm not even going to touch this one. Just let it go, Jason, just let it go...

                Glad I wasn't the only one bothered by this post.

                  I can understand the origins of DhEXED's thread title, but this one puzzles me to no end.

                  How is shit sure? Where does this sureness compare on the continuum of surety; is it between that of a Timex watch's reliability and that of my ability to mount a Coker?

                  Does this imply a comparison to shit or a comparison to surety? ...or to both?

                  Could this simply be a contraction of "sure as shit st*nks"? That would make more sense.

                    I believe your last supposition is the correct one, but that said, I have always just liked the sound of this expression. And to most native speakers of English it gets the point across.

                    ...the point across what you will undoubtedly ask and then answer for yourself.

                      This surety supersedes both of those. A Timex can break, or the battery can die. You will eventually get too old to (safely) freemount a Coker. But even then, you won't be able to avoid your own need to sh*t. I'm sure.

                            Me and 2 of my unis show up on a report about the GPN11 (a small hacker conference), minute 3:30:

                            Note that my extremely bad balance is due to several days without sleep. I managed to ride down the stairs you see at the end of the video, later during the conference.

                              DhEXED,

                              You have exhibited the graciousness that can only come from a secure person comfortable in their own skin.
