Contrarian or Interesting Photos - Part IV

Updated: Jun 7, 2021

Here's a picture of Michael Carrick, former Man United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, current Manager of Man United. These two former International football players appear to be posing with their wives at a black-tie event. However, the ad is providing an opportunity to see the most successful attorneys in Vernon Hills, Illinois. Is this not misleading? Who's involved in this lack of transparency ad? How many viewers realize this photo has nothing to do with attorneys, let alone attorneys from Vernon Hills?

Does this company say these pretzels are petite due to the size of the pretzels or the size of the bag? At 14 grams (1/2 ounce), the size of the airline snack is indeed petite although 50 calories which seems a little high for such a petite bag of pretzels. To mitigate the types of snacks received on a flight, I ensure I bring along a bag of mixed nuts -- you can't go wrong doing so...

I need to get to the dirt of the matter...You learn by doing. Each spring, I typically have the need to purchase a handful of bags of soil from the home improvement big box stores or our neighborhood Ace. However, over the last 5 or more years, none of the bags of soil are considered good. If planting grass seed and you want to be successful based on the dirt I have purchased recently, it's a good idea to shift through the dirt in order to get effective dirt. I'd estimate that 30% of the dirt is not considered viable for my needs. I guess they don't make dirt like they used to.

I wonder if this homeowner loves Trump and hates Biden? The answer is obvious; I get why some people voted for Trump in 2016 -- I'll give them a mulligan of not knowing how much damage one person could do but to vote for him again in 2020? Also, there are denying the fact that Biden was actually elected to be President, by over 7 million votes. Anyway, these home owners appear to have the ADT service; perhaps they're being protected by all those 'evil' Biden supporters in Libertyville that may loot and riot in front of their house.

Believe it or not, in the same neighborhood as the diehard Trump supporter, someone feels strongly about BLM and other causes to post this sign in their front yard. I wonder if these two neighbors play cards together?

A well-constructed train station in Racine, Wisconsin with no passengers allowed. Whatever happened to our passenger rail system in our country and the more important question, will it ever come back?

'Murika: ’Murika is a slang term for America that is used to denote extreme patriotism, coupled with aspects of a redneck or southern American stereotype similar those featured in the advice animals Redneck Randal or Almost Politically Correct Redneck. It can also be found on image macros to either support or criticize American stereotypes.

I like the idea of a local bike store (George Garner Cyclery in Libertyville) that has donated funds to provide several bike repair stations around town. I've yet to see anyone use these stations but it's nice to know they are available if necessary.

So, according to many Republicans, Law and Order was a critical component in voting this way in 2020. What I don't get is they yell 'Law and Order' (like Nixon) but yet are not willing to admit some of those same Republicans forget this campaign slogan when it omes to the Capital Riot on January 6, 2021.
