Ponderisms! Now that’s something fun!


And what can be more fun than dressing up your dog for Halloween?

Am I the only one in the whole wide world that doesn’t know what a “ponderism” is?  Now that I think about it, I can’t be.  I went to the dictionary and looked for an official definition and came up empty handed!

Well, maybe one of my fearless readers will suggest a definition of “ponderism” but in the meantime, here are some great examples!

  • How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
  • Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?
  • If money doesn’t grow on trees then why do banks have branches?
  • Since bread is square, then why is sandwich meat round?
  • Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?
  • Why doesn’t glue stick to the bottle?
  • What disease did cured ham actually have?
  • How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
  • If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
  • If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
  • What hair color do they put on the driver’s licenses of bald men?

Fun? It’s not just cute car magnets!

Cute St. Paddy’s Day Joke!

smileyWhen I think of fun, I think of Fun Car Tattoos!  But I know that the world doesn’t revolve around Peace Symbol car magnets or smiley face car magnets!

So… Happy St. Paddy’s Day and I hope you enjoy this joke as much as I enjoy my Fun Car Tattoos!

Flynn staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Nancy..

He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.

Managing not to yell, Flynn sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw blood.

He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed.

In the morning, Flynn woke up with searing pain in both his head and butt and  Nancy staring at him from across the room.

She said, ‘You were drunk again last night weren’t you?’

Flynn said, ‘Why you say such a mean thing?’

‘Well,’ Nancy said, ‘it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly…’s all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror.

Best of all, 5% of all sales goes to support Canine Companions for Independence, a charity that trains and provides therapy dogs to children and adults with disabilities, free of charge.

We also love the personalized car magnets so you can have a picture of your dog made in to a fun car tattoo for all to see while you drive around town. What a great gift idea!

Female Entrepreneur Launches Car Magnet Business


Female Entrepreneur Launches Car Magnet Business


With the high cost of gas these days, people are finding it harder and harder to make their morning commute. Just getting behind the driver’s seat puts a lot of commuters in a bad mood for the rest of the day. If you are one of those stressed out drivers who cringe every time you get into your car, a smile may just be a magnet away. “Every time I get into my little red car that is covered with dog paw magnets, I smile,” says Jo Anne Cohn, owner of Fun Car Tattoos. “And what makes it even better is when I’m stopped at a red light, people give me the thumbs up and flash a huge smile.”

Cohn says the idea for Fun Car Tattoos came from wanting to have more fun in her life. She was tired of the 9 to 5 routine and making decisions by committee. Having spent time as a Peace Corps volunteer in central Africa, Cohn knew that starting a business wasn’t enough. She had to figure out a way to “share the wealth” and give back to the community.

“Fun Car Tattoos combines the best from the corporate world and the nonprofit world,” says Cohn. Five percent of the selling price of the magnets will go to non-profits including Canine Companions for Independence, the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, and the YWCA of Sonoma County. Cohn is always looking for new magnet designs and non-profits to team up with. “I’d like to expand my product line and include some cute cat paw print magnets. I just haven’t made the time to find a grassroots non-profit to team up with.”

Having fun is all in a day’s work for Cohn. Now that she’s gotten the magnets designed, she has to figure out how to market them. “And that’s where even more fun comes in,” says Cohn grinning ear to ear. “Take a look at this smiling skull and cross bones,” pointing to a very friendly car magnet. “Did you know that International Talk Like a Pirate Day is coming up on September 19th? Now I’ve just got to figure out how to market to that group!”

FunCarTattoos is a leading maker of decorative easy on, easy off, flexible vinyl car magnets that are made in USA.

Hello from Jo Anne at Fun Car Tattoos!

Welcome to my blog! I can’t believe it! I’ve been in business since April 1st, 2008 (no joke!) and I’m already starting my 2nd blog. This blog is dedicated to selling Fun Car Tattoos AND having fun! My “other” blog… Women Entrepreneurs – the first year, talks about the trials and tribulations of my first year in business. Hopefully, it will be a resource for other women who are also in their first year of business.

Please hang in there will I try and get all the wrinkles out of starting this new blog. I promise to make my posts fun and informative. And… just to prove the fun part, here’s a really cute joke that I got from Martia Nelson, who does dancing with her dog Rincon. Check out her website at .

The Telegram

A German Shepherd went into a Western Union telegram office, took out a blank form, and wrote “Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. ”

The clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog, “There are only nine words here. You could send another ‘Woof’ for the same price.”

“But,” the dog replied, “that would make no sense at all.”

It’s all about fun!

Put a smile on your face... And your car too!
