Hey, you’re just a pretender vendor!
Blog Guy, I saw some Reuters photos of street vendors in San Salvador, having a protest. There were THOUSANDS of them. How can there be so many street vendors in one city?
That’s easy. There are no indoor shops there. Everything is sold on the streets by vendors.
For example, you buy your fruit smoothie from a blender vendor while a mender vendor repairs your jacket.
But I need a bank loan.
Then see the lender vendor.
And if I need a lawyer?
A defender vendor.
Whoops! My pants just fell down!
That’s a job for the suspender vendor.
I’m a woman trapped in a man’s body. What about a sex change operation?
You need the gender vendor.
Is there any street music there?
Of course! Listen to the Elvis impersonator sing, “Love me Vendor” and “Return to Vendor.”
Enough of this stupidity. So why are these vendor folks so upset, anyway?
A car crashed into one of their street stalls yesterday.
That’s horrible! Was it serious?
Nah, it was just a vendor bender.
