GROAN



Red Setter?
o-o-o

Sofa and no further?
o-o-o

I know they've cancelled half the bus
services, but this is ridiculous.
o-o-o


No? Not funny?
Very well, but I can't think of anything else
except

'this is where you catch the couch to Chesterfield'!

  2. tee hee ... Well done Friko! You've made me smile on this early Monday morning. ... red setter!

    If you sit on that chesterfield (Americans probably won't know what that is btw)you might get the word of my word verification:
    "gonrea" ... my feeble attempt at humour ... groan ...

  3. I had heard of a chesterfield, but until now I don't think I new what one is. Love your captions, especially the second one, made me laugh... :-)

  5. Thanks so much for the chuckles. I was wondering if the couch was where you sit to wait for divan that takes you to Chesterfield.

  6. What a great smile to start my day. Now I'll be keeping my eye out here in the U.S. for the couch to Davenport.

  9. The sofa looks like it ought to be on one of those Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore sketches. The two of them sitting and observing the world drift by.

    Liked your play on words.

  11. "where you catch the couch to Chesterfield!" I like that one.

  12. I love your take on it . You can always come up with just the right one-liner .
    But , to me , what's truly extraordinary about this photo is , not the sofa on the side of the road , but the complete lack of grafitti .
    Mind you , that might just be a reflection of the difference between where we live , you and I !

  13. Is this a national expression?

  14. The only Chesterfield I know if is a cigarette.
    Love your captions. :)

  15. Wonderful, Friko! We always said "chesterfield" when I was young. Now I say "couch" so "the couch to Chesterfield" is perfect! I like the others also.

  17. Hi Friko, I was here earlier and thought I left a message but, I don't see it. Am I growing absent minded?

    I wish we had red sofas at every bus stop but they would have to be in shelters.

    Clever phases from an imaginative soul. Dianne

  18. Is this the road to Red Square?

  19. So good! And riders can wait in comfort.

  20. Very humourous captions indeed, i like the last one that really made me smile :-).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay, I don't even know what's going on but you still have me giggling. Which is all I could ask for on this snowy, dreary Monday. :))

  24. Dear Friko.
    These witty captions made me laugh--the sofa so small, the imagination so large.

    Peace.

  25. At the end of a long, dull Monday, this was just the thing! I like the way your mind works.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Delightful and fitting (or should I say sitting?)captions for the photo prompt!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You are good. I especially like the "red setter."

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sure it's not going on to Davenport? Friko, these are wonderful. Now I need to explain why I am hooting at this late hour...
    Thank you!

  29. Sofa, So Good?

    Empty Chairs, No Table?

    Made me smile anyway

    ReplyDelete
  30. The Lizard Lounge? Nah, that's not even close to your 2nd caption ...

    Great photo AND great captions - a rare combination (just don't tell any of the photo bloggers I read ...)

    ReplyDelete
  31. A nice change from all the serious stuff around.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great captions! I especially liked the couch to Chesterfield. All aboard!

  33. To sit is human
    To err is divan.

    No?

  34. Red setter or bed settee? :-)
    Good smiley Magpie!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Groans, but happy groans. Word play is always fun:-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. No, no Friko. You've got it all wrong. This red couch in the red light district is obviously for Street Sitters as opposed to Street Walkers. Drive-up service. Just another sign of how lazy we've all become.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hehe... that's a good one! Nice Magpie :)

    Cheers...

  38. So clever and so funny. Love this post!

  39. first line made me think a red irish setter peed all over this sofa

  40. Dear Friko: Sweet! Chesterfield! It is a place, like Glouster!! How original! Love to ride the regional bus routes across Merry Ol' England!
