Miss Blonde Booth Babe across the aisle from me was being quizzed regarding the oxygen bar set up:

Man: So this is cool, why are the cylinders different colors? Are they different scents, different flavors, a different portion of oxygen?

MBBB: Oh no, they just have air. Oh, and oxygen.


Don't quit your day job, honey.

It is more accurate to say: Seen On a Bus.

As the Northbound #15 pulled to a stop across from me this morning. Two young girls who stood next to me began to giggle. The advertising banner on the side of the northbound bus had a snickers bar with the word: HUNGERECTOMY

Which they sounded out as Hung Erect O(h) My!

We were all three still giggling when the southbound bus arrived to pick us up.
The last panel totally does it for me! Actually the whole thing does.
Watching this made me really smile.

And, when you're done smiling, try this instead! :)

And, when you need to smile again read this: (and click on the link)

"If you have ever hauled a can of paint to the top of a water tower to defend your sister's honor...you might be a redneck."

Just a little tip from your Uncle Ern'.
One random summer day in 1993 I received a voice mail on my answering machine. Yes, I had one of those archaic, separate-from-the-phone, tape driven answering machine thingies. The caller left no name, no number, I couldn't even tell by the voice who it was. The message said:

Clop clop, clop clop
Clop clop, clop clop


Clop clop, clop clop
Clop clop, clop clop


There are only so many minutes in which you can stand there looking perplexed and annoyed at an inanimate machine that refuses to yield any new information.

Eventually I shrugged it off as a wrong number. What else can I do?

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKs later, on a sunny Sunday morning, I'm sitting at a local coffee shop with my friend Adam. We're chatting over a latte and a muffin. We've been talking for nearly an hour already when suddenly he says

"You never returned my message."

*blink* "What message."

A sly smile crosses his face.

"Didn't you get a cryptic voice mail message a few weeks ago?"

A light bulb goes off in my head along with the memory of this completely puzzling message on my phone.

"Oh, yes...what the hell was that?"

"An Amish Drive-by Shooting."

It really is a wonder I still speak to him :)

but wait, it gets better... )
This somehow reminds me of those really bad films you'd see in Junior High. You and Static Electricity! With Fuzzy the Lightening Bolt
A humorous email sent to me by boss #2, via his sister. Having lived most of these places (I can easily substitute Alaska for Maine and get the same answers) I had a giggle over them. Hopefully you will too.

Good Book Report

Students were assigned to read 2 books, "Titanic" & "My Life" by Bill Clinton.
One smart-ass student turned in the following book report, with the proposition that they were nearly identical stories!
His cool professor gave him an A+ for this report:

Titanic:..... $29.99
Clinton:..... $29.99

Titanic:..... Over 3 hours to read
Clinton:..... Over 3 hours to read

Titanic:..... The story of Jack and Rose, their forbidden love, and
subsequent catastrophe.
Clinton:..... The story of Bill and Monica, their forbidden love, and
subsequent catastrophe.

Titanic:..... Jack is a starving artist.
Clinton:..... Bill is a bullshit artist.

Titanic:..... In one scene, Jack enjoys a good cigar.
Clinton:..... Ditto for Bill.

Titanic:..... During ordeal, Rose's dress gets ruined.
Clinton:..... Ditto for Monica.

Titanic:..... Jack teaches Rose to spit.
Clinton:..... Let's not go there.

Titanic:..... Rose gets to keep her jewellery.
Clinton:..... Monica's forced to return her gifts.

Titanic:..... Rose remembers Jack for the rest of her life.
Clinton:..... Clinton doesn't remember Jack.

Titanic:..... Rose goes down on a vessel full of seamen.
Clinton:..... Monica...ooh, let's not go there, either.

Titanic:..... Jack surrenders to an icy death.
Clinton:..... Bill goes home to Hilary...basically the same thing
BlackAdder III: Sense and Senility:

Baldrick: Is that the door?

Edmond: Oh, don't worry, it's just the actors.

(Continued rapping. Blackadder pours himself a cup of tea.)

B: My uncle Baldrick was in a play once.

E: Really?

B: Yeah, it was called *Macbeth*.

E: And what did he play?

B: Second codpiece... Macbeth wore him in the fight scenes.

E: So he was a stunt codpiece. (sips his tea) Did he have a large part?

B: Depends who's playing Macbeth.
What you need:

* A group of four taxpayers: including 1 white guy wearing a Suit. 2 people wearing jeans, one in a Work Shirt, the other in a Dark Shirt, and 1 person wearing Rags. Stitched together wash cloths are nice. Four are grouped around cocktail table within sight of television. Newspapers on floor in front of television.
* A shot glass per person. Everyone brings their own and places on table. Suit picks one first. Then Work Shirt. Then Dark Shirt. Suit takes last one as well, and Rags gets a Dixie Cup with the top scissored off.
* 5 bucks apiece. Everybody antes.
* Fondue pot with 2 packages of Li’l Smokies stewing in barbecue sauce on table. Preferably a sauce from Texas. Surrounded by:
* 100 cocktail toothpicks. The kind with the little American flags wrapped around the top.
* A large stash of beer. Rags gets the cheapest stuff you can find, like Old Milwaukee Light; Suit gets to drink whatever import he asks for; while the jeans get to pick their favorite domestic brand, but they are required to pay for all the beer and the Li’l Smokies.
