OXYMORON-JUMBO SHRIMP

If there ever was a misnomer, this is it. This guy is anything but a Shrimp. Can you imagine pulling up behind some suburban matron in this car? While vanity insists she check her coif every minute or so in the rearview mirror, she looks up and sees this giant crustacean approaching. I would pay to see the expression on her face. I think we could use about a gallon of cocktail sauce. What do you think?

  3. Since it's right beside the trash bin, do you think the owner was hoping to have it hauled away? I hope so, for the old lady's sake.

  7. I think there are too many people in Florida who let their imaginations run wild, all over the place.

    Then, again, it wouldn't be the same without these crusty, freaky creatures that inhabit cars, yards, businesses, boats, well, you name it...

  8. That's funny, but would be even funnier if it was parked next to a lemon tree.

  17. We love word play and we have so much fun with it that we decided to create figurines that are vivid examples of oxymorons.

    That Jumbo Shrimp in the picture is a great vivid example of the hilarious oxymoron.

    We'd love to see how many more you can get pictures of in your area.

    Great photo.
