Contextual jokes. We’ve all been there. Everyone around you is roaring with laughter, but you’re not 100% sure you get why it’s funny. But, of course, you laugh anyway. We encountered one of these at Marburger:
A dealer (who we’d TOTALLY be friends with if we lived in the same metro) was telling us that a designer saw this fabulous piece of ironstone:
And asked if it was a giant coffee mug. We all GUFFAWED. In fact, there may have been a snort or two. A woman, also shopping in this booth, chuckled, but asked why this was funny. I hope we were kind in our delivery… “uhm…it’s a CHAMBER POT!”
Despite being the perfect size for my daily intake of coffee, there isn’t enough bleach on earth that could convince me it was hygenic to drink from it.
But, it is super pretty!
Thanks to Lavender Road Antiques for the giggles and the thrill of being recognized!
