Why is someone banging on a can in the street when I had a terrible night's sleep?

Asked by janbb (53307points) June 1st, 2011

Any guesses as to why someone might be doing that would be helpful.

They saw a “Snookie”?
Why’d you have a terrible night’s sleep?

Cuz they’re stoopid poopy-heads and must be punished.

Sharing the pain, maybe? Obviously they weren’t sleeping, either.

@janbb : I know someone with a whip and stilettos…just sayin’...

I know this really isn’t a true question, but would it be any more acceptable for some loon to be banging on a can in the street if you had experienced a good night’s sleep?

janbb's avatar

Yes – it actually would; at least I’d have more tolerance.

OK – now a huge construction truck has shown up. It must be Persecute the Penguin Day and I didn’t get the memo.

So you can be miserable?

It’s working. Now it sounds like a very large dentist is drilling in the street!

JilltheTooth's avatar

crap. Now my teeth hurt!

Around here it is the last day of school, maybe someone is celebrating? Or maybe they are poopy heads and need to be punished.

Are they erecting a giant Penguin statue in the street?

Or they are being MEAN poopy heads.

janbb's avatar

No giant Penguin statue emerging as yet – so the mean poopy heads theory is looking strong.

They are also blocking my driveway so I can’t escape. (I don’t normally suffer from a persecution complex.)

Open season on penguins? Be afraid. Be very afraid.

If it was a bunch of 8 years olds I would say they maybe “digging to China”, a favorite pass time of 8 year olds. ( I remember finding a stone bowl with a buddy of mine in his backyard, 600 years old they said at the museum.)

Do they not want me to make it to the weekend?

JilltheTooth's avatar

If it looks like that might happen, I’ll come rescue you!!!

iamthemob's avatar

Because it’s hilarious…!

janbb's avatar

@iamthemob Love you too boychik!

iamthemob's avatar

PS @janbb – it’s actually me banging on the can. Can you see me? I’m waving… ...wait, maybe you just can’t hear me…I’ll bang louder.

Oy. I would so water-bomb him.

Check if your ‘Quiet, Penguin Reading’ sign has fallen from your door.

janbb's avatar

@flutherother (Runs down, checks door) You nailed it! And I will renail it to the door!

Murphy’s Law. You need sleep, so today is bang on a can day for someone. Life just works that way I think.

KatawaGrey's avatar

Oh, yeah, I know those guys. They do landscaping work on the tiny strip of grass next door to my apartment building every Tuesday morning for several hours. Sorry! I think they’re only job is to wake us up.

chyna's avatar

They had better move their butts before the weekend or I’ll have to come up and kick ass.

And the Penguin Posse is assembled and ready to ride!
