30 Days of Photos, Day 5: Lotion

I joined a bunch of other bloggers in a 30-day photo challenge and today’s theme is “lotion”.


adult entertainment, massage lotions, cheap ass signs

A sidewalk sign in South Lake Tahoe. And an exemplary case of classy advertising. Where can I get one?

Because I forgot to bring my trusty mascot Lacy, you get subjected to the seedier side of Lake Tahoe.

Here’s what I don’t get. They say the porno adult entertainment industry is a 457 quadrillion dollar industry. But they can’t afford professional advertising? Really?

This lame-ass signage is one step above stealing a refrigerator box from an alley and slapping Post-It notes on there boasting “GRILS GRLS GRILLS” scrawled with a Sharpie.


You can see today’s other challengers over at Ziva’s Inferno.

    At least it’s a step above something.

  2. Indigo Roth says:

    Did you check out the “novelties”? What, were they like “an honest politician” and “tasty low-fat food”?

    1. Margaret says:

      Hee hee! I’m afraid I wouldn’t dare go upstairs. Except for journalistic purposes only of course.

  3. sueann says:

    Good point!! Ha

    1. Margaret says:

      SueAnn!!!! How come you never leave your blog behind? Aren’t you able to add your blog URL to this dang comment form?

  4. Jamie Baker says:

    Come on funny feeling!

  5. Lauren says:

    I love the arrow. For customers not familiar with the word “upstairs.”

    1. Margaret says:

      Kind of like when Michael said the customers also had to be told that lingerie is sexy. What happened to luring customers in with photos of unrealistic scantily clad women?

  6. ladyV says:

    yeah, they have to pay the “workers”. actually they really don’t need to advertise much. everybody wants IT

    1. Margaret says:

      So they skimp on the adverts so the single mommies going back to school can get their law degree? After going into the Peace Corps, of course.

  7. Laughing Mom says:

    I called that number and some dude named Michael something hyphenated answered and said that “Ziva” would be right over. I’m still waiting….

    1. Ziva says:

      Dammit! Michael forgot to tell me again. You know how Michael is with lotion.

    2. Margaret says:

      HAHAHAAHHA!!! –> Michael something hypenated…. awesome.

  8. sharkbytes says:

    Perhaps they think the advertising quality should match the level of the patrons?

    1. Margaret says:

      Zing! Nice one, sharkbytes. 🙂

  9. Cheryl P. says:

    Evidently the “brains behind the business” can’t claim marketing as their area of expertise. I think we might have an inkling what their area of expertise is though,

    1. Margaret says:

      Ha! No kidding. Oh wait….you meant geographical research, right?

  10. Paula Wooters says:

    Well, I figured there’d be a little “Teaz & Pleaz” with this lotion theme! Did you find any new panties for the goats?

    1. Margaret says:

      If I had the kahungas to go up the stairs, I could have looked.

  11. MikeWJ says:

    I really need to convince my wife to let me attend a few of these blogging conventions. I think it would really help my writing, and give me a more positive outlook on the future.

    As an aside, is there such as thing as unsexy lingerie? It seems to me that lingerie is automatically sexy, but I’m not an expert in such things.

    Anyway, enough of this talk about lotion. I’m afraid of offending the Canadians.

    1. Margaret says:

      Yes, sexy lingerie is redundant. However, for the dimwits out there who need to be told that lingerie is sexy, you have these signs.

  12. Well, shoot it all to thunder…the comment I left before also disappeared!

    I said, it kinda reminds me of the ‘hillbilly advertisements’ seen ’round these parts! Heeehehehehe!

    Dang, Tahoe??? Can I be jealous??? I’m stuck smack in the middle of nowhere here on the Ponderosa!

    God bless ya sweetie and have enough fun for the both of us… “K”???

    1. Margaret says:

      Looks like there was a delay in the process. I’m seriously thinking of removing Disqus off of here. It’s such a pain. I’m sorry for the trouble it caused you. I got all 3 of your messages. (Unless you wrote more than that) 😉

  13. Testin’…. Guess when ya go MIA things and people disappear!

    1. Margaret says:

      Whoops! Well, I got both your messages loud and clear!

  14. Nezzy says:

    Kinda looks like some of the ‘hillbilly advertizements ‘ I’ve seen ’round these parts!

    Shoot….Tahoe? Can I be jealous?? I’m stuck smack in the middle of nowhere here on the Ponderosa! Heeehehehehe!

    God bless ya and have enough fun for the both of us…’K’???

    1. Margaret says:

      Hi Nezzy! I’ll try! 🙂

  15. mike says:

    All I can think of is, “The ’80’s called and they want their sign back.”

    1. Margaret says:

      Ha! I’m surprised at Tahoe. Reno, maybe. But not Tahoe.


  17. Tell the truth, Margaret. Did you go up and buy something? I really hope not because if somebody saw you up there, they would have wanted a photo immediately.

    1. Margaret says:

      Ah, because of the porn star skin thing. I ran past it. Just in case.

      1. MikeWJ says:

        Huh? Please explain.

        1. Margaret says:

          Uhhhh, well, Linda told me I have porn star skin. Or maybe she told the whole world about it in a blog post – I don’t remember. 🙂

  18. Ziva says:

    Oh yeah, what a dump, the place I usually go to has much classier advertising.

    That’s really all I have to say about your lotion photo, you know how the Trinidadian and Tobagonians are about lotion.

    1. Margaret says:

      Indeed I do. Which is why I ever mention it in front of them.

      1. MikeWJ says:

        But behind them?

        1. Margaret says:

          Of course behind them. Definitely behind them.

  19. Tami Von Zalez says:

    Well, you know a gril’s gotta be a gril.

      1. MikeWJ says:

        Not anymore. They can fix that problem now.

  20. Do they actually attract customers with that sign? It looks like some seedy nightmare of a place where the “novelties” would be grandmas old goodies.

    1. Margaret says:

      I didn’t see anybody going up there, but maybe they were skulking and I missed it.

      1. MikeWJ says:

        Thank god you didn’t see anybody go up there. I think that sort of behavior should be reserved for the privacy of your hotel room, not put on public display.

  21. Pricilla says:

    I guess they are greedy. Or have high insurance premiums

    1. Margaret says:

      Who knows. But I’m guessing greedy. Or they’re doing it all wrong.

  22. nonamedufus says:

    Um, do you have an address?

  23. Pat Kumicich says:

    sure looks like the dark side of Lake Tahoe!

    1. Margaret says:

      And it’s a new place too. They’re in the process of “developing” the area into a proper “strip”, I guess, pun intended.
