Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Anagraming away!

October 11, 2010

When you rearrange the letters in DORMITORY you get “dirty room.” How fitting. Unfortunately, rearranging the letters in CARWASH using the online Internet Anagram Server, does not yield the same clever results. On a side note, when rearranging “In bay automatic” we did get “A Bay Atomic Unit” and “Maniac Bay It Out.” For “auto detailing” the most creative one we got was “A Dialogue Tint.”

Here’s what we got rearranging

What rhymes with carwash?

Jim Callahan, who has worked for more than 40 years as a convenience store and petroleum marketer, is also a poet, or someone who “dabbles” in poetry as he puts it. Jim was kind enough to share one of his latest sonnets with us, based on a true story that happened at one of his locations.

“The Carwash Blues”
By Jim Callahan a.k.a. “Jimmy Blowdry”

Now this here’s the story of Miss Nancy Ledbetter
Got stuck in the carwash and got wetter and wetter!

She entered the building — she was there to clean
She found out that carwash was spittin’ mean!

She’s a great worker — gives that old college try
But made a mistake by trippin’ that magnetic eye!

The water came on — it was a big old gusher
She clung to the drain — it like’d to flush her!

It sprayed her down — soaked her skin
Had no idea what state she was in!

The motors kicked in — there was lots of foam
Hair was a mess — as she reached for her comb!

Went through the wash cycle — next comes wax
Got trifoam conditioner — all over her slacks!

A big blast of air and a bunch of simonize
My God that woman’s got shiny thighs!

Weather so cold she darn near froze
There’s icicles hanging from her nose!

When it finally stopped she ran to the store
Told ‘ol Stephanie — I can’t take much more!

She was mad as a hornet — that ain’t no lie
She said the least it could do — is fluff & dry!

Here’s what we got rearranging
