My best friend and I tend to go on random thrift store hunts from time to time (how hipster of us I know). We only look at the books and random collections of kitschy items. I’ve recently begun collecting little statues or hidden treasures like the one above so I can put my own twist into them. We found this plaque in the image above with this creepy looking photo of porcelain statues similar to precious moments. Needless to say, it was 99 cents well spent. I then decided I didn’t want to add much to it because it was already laid out fairly well and had a color palette. The image made me think of the “Jack and Jill” nursery rhyme which led me to think of the “Jack and Jill” joke from comedian Andrew Dice Clay. So with some antique looking font, coffee stained paper, and a glue stick, I gave this piece a bit of crude humor to coincide with it’s innocent image. Fun little sunday night craft.
Here’s the full joke:
“Jack and Jill went up the hill, both with a buck and a quarter. Jill came down with two-fifty. OH!”
Andrew Dice Clay is ridiculous. Most of the time you don’t want to laugh at his jokes but you can’t help it.
“Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
That sat down beside her
And said “What’s in the bowl, bitch?”
(you didn’t want to laugh at that, but I bet you did! :))
