"Some men just want to watch the world burn."

I had what I would call a "Joker Moment" today during my morning walk.

You know those signs that are usually out in front of businesses and schools where you can just change the words around and they say "Eat At Joe's" or "Go Fighting Tigers" or "Free Well Puppy and Kitten Exams" and the like? Are they called sandwich boards or something like that? Anyway, I saw this sign out in front of a business that said "We Support Our Troops and Honor Our Veterans" which, with Veteran's Day coming up Monday, seems very appropriate, although I think I've seen that sentiment on several occasions year-round. I looked at that sign and for some odd reason thought, "Wouldn't it be just like The Joker to switch those words around and make it say `To Hell With Our Troops and Veterans'?"

And as if I had caught a wiff of Smilex, I chuckled. I had a smile on my face for several steps until I realize that it couldn't be done because there were no "L"s in "We Support Our Troops and Honor Our Veterans." My smile drooped and I shrugged. Oh well.

The I remembered the "Free Well Puppy and Kitten Exams" sign that was just two doors down from the "We Support Our Troops and Honor Our Veterans" sign. Just take the "L"s from "Well" and....

I chuckled, again.

And again.
