“Watch Step?? Why, What’s It Going to Do?”
Chalk it up to the late hour, or perhaps the antihistamines in my system.
Regardless, while ordering a “Watch Step” sign online for an upcoming listing the other night, I was transported back to a great stand up bit I heard at a club in the Bay Area years ago.
The comic was mimicking the reaction of a very inebriated driver to the disembodied voice pleasantly but insistently telling him that “the door is ajar.”
Rather than shut the door, the driver tries to wrap his head around the idea that the car door is in fact . . . a jar (“cool, man”).
P.S.: Yet another comedy bit parodied the reaction of an especially dim bulb to a sign that said “wet floor” (they mistook the adjective to be a verb).
