LECLERC: SHADY ‘SHOP SKILLS

The latest thing in patio furniture now offers customers a choice between an innovative ‘shadeless’ umbrella (shown here), and the more traditional shadow-casting version, (no longer in stock).

Never mind the missing umbrella shadow.  What patio set does anyone know of that comes with eight chairs?!  Maybe this photo represents the optional ‘Catholic’ upgrade.  Whatever the case, they should at least include a year’s supply of SBF-60 sunblock, no?

Thanks General Pepper!

    That’s “SPF” – Sun Protection Factor.

      I stand corrected.  The world is a better place, thanks to you, Abbreviation Man!

    the umbrella is probably useless against the rain and wind too. 

    Only rich whores would get 8 chairs for a table that fits 6.

    You can get 60+ SPF? I didn’t know that was out, I normally only get 30+ SPF…

      Yes, you can. Sometimes known as “white paint.”

      In Arizona it’s so sunny they use SB-1070.

        LOL!  Very good, Waldobaby!

  • FallOfTheUshers

    Patio umbrellas aren’t used for shade, silly, they’re for breaking loose during wind storms and crashing into my car in the driveway.

      Same thing for the giant, HEAVY umbrellas at Starbucks. One cut loose in a quick thunderstorm, flew about 20 feet, landing on the hood of my beautiful, restored 1966 Chevelle, leaving a good size dent. I was NOT happy at all.

      • Cropper

        WOW Bev’s comment had that essential aspect of comedy– truth!

    • Cropper

      Bev I might have to recommend a career in stand up.

  • Cropper

    Maybe it has a switch were you can turn the shadow on and off. Shadow on Shadow Off.

    The sun angles are wrong, but the missing umbrella shadow didn’t make the crop and would have shown in a larger picture.  But the sun angle for the pool (which appears to have been somewhat corrected, but they missed the spot on the left) and the table are definitely different.

    • Waldobaby

      And the vertical pole’s shadow that is not on the table top?

    The shadows in the shadows are an especially nice touch.

      very especially since they go in the opposite direction …

    I don’t have a problem with the 8 chairs.  The table is numbered 1, the inset of a chair is numbered 2, and the unbrella is numbered 3.  I think it everything is sold separately and they just want to show that the table is big enough for eight (another theory – it comes with 4-6 chairs and the inset picture is to show you can buy additional chairs).  If it was a set that came with a table and eight chairs, why would they have the inset picture?

    Still a PsD, of course, unless that is a vampire umbrella. Hmm, couldn’t be – a vampire would need a umbrella that has a shadow because they can’t be in the sun, right?  Maybe I should read Twilight – or at least stop overthinking things.

  • Tigeleiro

    But can anyone explain why did they spoke about the Catholic faith on this article?

    • Jshook

      It used to be a supposedly-humorous idea that Catholics had lots of children because they didn’t practice birth control because the church disapproved. So lots of children need lots of chairs. Get it? Get it? Yes, another inappropriate and tasteless comment by our caption writer who seems to be circling through all the possible groups who can be insulted and then insulting them. Not as bad as some that have appeared here.

        Thanks, dude!  I so appreciate when you judge my captions as either ‘inappropriate’ or ‘tasteless’ because for every ten such comments, I earn a free foot-long at Subway!

    • http://www.www.psdisasters.com/ Scooter

      Yes, as the writer of this caption, I’m happy to explain why I spoke about the Catholic faith.

      You see, I recognize my own evil, and am trying very, very hard to make sure I wind up in Hell.
