I'll start it off with this one...
That's from George Takei's Facebook page. Yeah, the guy from Star Trek. BTW I did a site search for threads with "humor" in the title and found exactly 3 of them, all of which were several years old. I can stickify this if there is sufficient demand...

|Subject: IRS AND OLD PEOPLE|
The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office.
The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.
The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable.'
I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration?'
The auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead..'
Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.'
The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'
Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops.
Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.'
Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.
Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.
'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'
The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.
Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor's desk.
The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.
But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.
'Are you okay?' the auditor asks.
'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!'
Don't Mess with Old People!!!!

|I too lament the disappearance of The FarSide from the landscape.|
These days, I look forward to a strip called Get Fuzzy ( Get Fuzzy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ). Imagine that Garfield was written by a doctoral student in philosophy and linguistics. Takes a bit to get into, but packed with great puns and verbal misunderstandings, in addition to plenty of British and Canadian references. (the human character in the strip appears to be of British heritage and grew up partly in Canada, though he currently resides in Kentucky). The principle character - a Siamese named Bucky Katt - stands in for every stubborn pigheaded ignorant know-it-all you've ever met. He thinks he's brilliant but is usually worng and just doesn't quite get it. There is a little bit of Stephen Colbert in him, too. His flat-mate, Satchel the dog, is maybe not every dog but a rather large swathe of them. He is ever-hopeful, always feeling a little guilty about something (which he has probably forgotten but retains the guilt...just in case) and smart, of a sort, but easily duped. He is also a slave to his uncontrollable habits, including eating the inedible, and being a gullible and willing volunteer for almost all of Bucky's schemes. The human, Rob, is a bit of a ne'er-do-well bachelor, who is perpetually abused by Bucky.
Recommended, although as a running daily series, each day's segment does not necessarily stand on its own.

A Boy and his train!
A few days after Christmas, a mother working in her kitchen was listening to her small son playing with his new electric train in the adjoining room.
She heard the train stop and the son said "All you sons of bitches who want off, get the hell off right now, 'cause this is the last stop ... and all you sons of bitches who are getting on, get your asses in the goddamn train 'cause we're leaving."
The mother went in and told her son "We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your bedroom for two hours and think about what you said and when you come out, you may play with your train again, but I want you to use much nicer language."
Two hours later the son came out of his bedroom and resumed playing with his train. Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, "All passengers who are disembarking, please remember to take all your belongings with you. Thank you for travelling with us today and we hope you will travel with us again soon. For those of you just boarding, we ask you to place all of your hand luggage under the seat. Remember please that there is no smoking except in the Club Car. We hope that you will have a pleasant
and relaxing journey with us today. For those of you who are pissed off because of the two hour delay, please see the bitch in the kitchen!"

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What are Politics?"
Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way:
#1. I'm the head of the family, so call me The President.
#2 Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.
#3 We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the People.
#4 The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class.
#5 And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future.
Now think about that and see if it makes sense."
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parent's room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.
The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."
The father says, "Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."
The little boy replies, "The President is screwing the Working Class, while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep "shit".

Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age. As your beauty fades, so will his eyesight
Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?
Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing.
The reason women don't play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.
Best way to get rid of kitchen odors: Eat out.
A bachelor is a guy who never made the same mistake once.
I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them.
Most children threaten at times to run away from home. This is the only thing that keeps some parents going.
Any time three New Yorkers get into a cab without an argument, a bank has just been robbed.
We spend the first twelve months of our children's lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve years telling them to sit down and shut up.
Burt Reynolds once asked me out. I was in his room.
What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.
The only time I ever enjoyed ironing was the day I accidentally got gin in the steam iron.
His finest hour lasted a minute and a half.
Old age is when the liver spots show through your gloves.
My photographs don't do me justice -they just look like me.
I admit, I have a tremendous sex drive. My boyfriend lives forty miles away.
Tranquillizers work only if you follow the advice on the bottle - keep away from children.
I asked the waiter, 'Is this milk fresh?' He said, 'Lady, three hours ago it was grass.'

|Nothing funny in this post. I just want to comment on the Phyllis Diller quotes.|
Everyone complains about modern television broadcasting offering a million things to watch and none of it being what you want to see. Not exactly "TV's not as good as it use to be." but pretty close. Of course when you look at older TV broadcasting, with only six channels and three of them airing Happy Days back to back with Lavern and Shirley reruns, it was pretty bad a lot of the time. We watched it anyway. What older broadcasting had that we lack today though were these exceptional and witty personalities. And we watched them every chance we got because it was good, funny and sometimes insightful programming we could identify with. It felt closer to home and more personal. Sure there are some modern celebrity personalities. A couple are pretty good too, but nothing like the way it was and too often shadowed by the Kim Kardashian's, Donald Trump's and Guy Fieri's. I know the broadcast industry is just giving the universal "us" what we want. In my opinion we should choose better because we lost something, somehow getting to where we are.

Laws not taught in Physics...
1.Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.
2.Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible place in the universe.
3.Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
4.Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal; someone always answers.
5.Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.
6.Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone will ring.
7.Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know INCREASES dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.
8.Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, IT WILL!!!
9.Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
10.Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena -At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.
11.The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
12.Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.
13.Law of Physical Surfaces -
The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.
14.Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible IF you don't know what you are talking about.
15. Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly. (So that explains it!!!)
16.Law of Public Speaking -- A CLOSED MOUTH GATHERS NO FEET!
17.Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it OR the store will stop selling it!
18.Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there, you'll feel better. But don't make an appointment and you'll stay sick.
If you don't forward this to your friends, your belly button will unscrew. Really... It's true. I read it on the Internet!

There are a lot of great TV shows that never made it to DVD like the John Larroquette Show from the mid-90's with a really good ensemble cast. Here is the Pilot... the first season was pretty dark but they lightened it up a bit in the last 3 seasons.

There are a lot of great TV shows that never made it to DVD like the John Larroquette Show from the mid-90's with a really good ensemble cast. Here is the Pilot... the first season had some pretty dark humor but they lightened it up a bit in the last 2 1/2 seasons when Alison LaPlaca joined the cast as John's next door neighbor and (spoiler alert!) girlfriend.
Although it was never released on DVD some diehard fan(s) recorded most of the shows on VHS tape and uploaded them to the internet. I don't think of that as being piracy because there is no interest in releasing the shows on DVD and they haven't been in syndication since 2005. I think of it as being more like the Library of Congress, preserving a very important part of our TV heritage. (I would rate this show as being funnier than Seinfeld.)

|Some Steven Wright one liners...I don't know how he does it, but he delivers these onstage completely slow, quiet, so deadpan it's unreal...|
If you had everything...where would you put it?
Why is it you can tell people there are a billion stars in the galaxy and they'll believe it, but if you put up a wet paint sigh they have to touch it to see?
I recently went to the hardware store and I bought some used paint...it was in a shape of a house. I also bought some batteries, but they weren't included. So I had to buy them again.
Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.
In school they told me "Practice makes perfect." And then they told me "Nobody's perfect," so then I stopped practicing.
When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, 'Did you sleep good?' I said 'No, I made a few mistakes.'
I'm writing a book. I've got the page numbers done.
I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.
If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.
I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.
If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny.
Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.
I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time.
If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?
There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.
I was reading the dictionary. I thought it was a poem about everything.
Everyone has a photographic Memory, some just don't have film.
I have a hobby. I have the world’s largest collection of sea shells. I keep it scattered on beaches all over the world. Maybe you’ve seen some of it.
I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, 'Where’s the self-help section?' She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.
Shin: a device for finding furniture in the dark.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.
A friend of mine once sent me a post card with a picture of the entire planet Earth taken from space. On the back it said, 'Wish you were here.
I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.
It doesn’t matter what temperature a room is, it’s always room temperature.
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met.
I went for a walk last night and she asked me how long I was going to be gone. I said, 'The whole time.
Last night somebody broke into my apartment and replaced everything with exact duplicates... When I pointed it out to my roommate, he said, "Do I know you?

Eighty-five year old Miss Bea, the church organist, had never been married. She was much admired for her sweetness, and kindness to all
The pastor came to call on her one afternoon early in the spring, and she welcomed him into her Victorian parlor. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared a little tea. As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young minister noticed a cut glass bowl sitting on top of it filled with water. In the water floated, of all things, a condom! Imagine his surprise and shock. Imagine his curiosity! Surely Miss Bea had flipped, or something.
When she returned with tea, and cookies, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water, and it's strange contents. but soon it got the better of him, and he could no longer resist. Pointing to the bowl, he asked, "Miss Bea, I wonder if you would tell me about this."
"Oh yes", she replied, "Isn't it just wonderful? I was walking downtown last fall, and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to put it on the organ, keep it wet, and it would prevent disease. And you know I haven't had a cold all winter!"

|This one is true.|
About 25 years back, I was teaching at a small university, near one coast, while my wife was finishing up her master's thesis on the other. She had our 4 year-old son during the autumn semester, while I got established, and then I came and got him during the Christmas break so she could hunker down and finish. My students knew that I was a functional single parent at that point.
One morning after I started my new regimen, between getting my son ready for daycare, and rushing off to a departmental meeting, I had to skip breakfast. When the meeting finally ended, around 10:30, I hustled off to finally get something from the cafeteria. I knew they shut down between 10:45 and 11:30, to change over from the breakfast crowd to the lunchtime crowd, so I didn't have much time to snag some breakfast. Quite honestly, starting the day off with salad wasn't going to cut it.
As I was exiting the building where my department was, I spied some baskets of Ovation dinner mints in the lobby. At least that's what they looked like; little individually-wrapped discs in dark shiny packaging about an inch and a half across. "Thank goodness!", I thought. I love those little chocolate-mint things, and I was SO hungry at that point. There didn't seem to be any takers, so as the throngs of students rushed past me to get to their classes, I quickly reached for the basket to grab a fistful.
Then I looked up to see the sign above that read "World AIDS Awareness Day". I slowly moved my hand back, hoping none of my students saw me eagerly attempting to scoop up a pile of something that, as far as they knew, I did not have any present use for (and I certainly had no reputation among them as an artisan of balloon animals).
I was so disappointed. I really really wanted them to be chocolate mints!

Your great story reminded me of an experience I also had teaching under difficult circumstances
Having begun my day by giving an 8AM lecture I had almost no time to grab a mid day stimulant beverage before sprinting to the lab class I taught that ended at 9PM.
Sitting momentarily in the student union I had the warm 24 oz energy drink in my hand when I groggily remembered the limited solubility of Guarana & Taurine that resulted in a powdery precipitate in this caffeine chocked beverage. Because of this I always ritualistically shook the bottle for a good 10 sec before pounding it through the ridiculously large orifice the jumbo bottle provided.
Remembering very little of the past several hours, much less the previous 30 seconds when I had removed the bottle's cap, I gave it a powerful shake, depositing at least half of the bottles contents on my head in one refreshing SPLASH! The students surrounding me were all quite amused.
The thick syrupy room temperature beverage had solidified to a sticky lump in the summer heat by the time I made it to the bathroom to rinse my head repeatedly and dry it under the hand blower.
I made it to lab with no time to spare and nothing to drink for the next 6 hours.

|When Ole moved he discovered that he was the only Lutheran in his town of all Catholics. The neighbors had a problem with his barbecuing venison every Friday, since they couldn't eat meat on Friday. Hoping they could do something to stop this, the neighbors went over to talk to Ole, eventually persuading him to join their church. The priest had Ole kneel. He said, "Ole, you were born a Lutheran, you were raised a Lutheran, and now," he said as he sprinkled some holy water over Ole's head, "now you are a Catholic!"|
The following Friday evening at suppertime, there was again that aroma of grilled deer steaks coming from Ole's yard. The neighbors went to talk to him about this and as they approached the fence, they heard Ole saying: "You were born a whitetail, you were raised a whitetail, and now," he said as he sprinkled seasoning salt over the choice tenderloin cut,"now you are a walleye!"

Do you drink beer?
How many beers a day?
Usually about 3
How much do you pay per beer?
Man: $5.00 which includes a tip
And how long have you been drinking?
About 20 years, I suppose
So a beer costs $5.00 and You have 3 beers a day which puts your spending each month at $450.00. In one year, it would be approximately $5400.00 correct?
If in 1 year you spend $5400.00, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000.00 correct?
Do you know that if you didn't drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Do you drink beer?

|BEST LAWYER / INSURANCE STORY|
This actually took place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, fire.
Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In
his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small fires.'
The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.
The lawyer sued and WON! (Stay with me.)
Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining
what is considered to be unacceptable 'fire' and was obligated to pay the claim.
Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his
loss of the cigars that perished in the 'fires'.
NOW FOR THE BEST PART...
After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!! With his own insurance claim and
testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to
24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.
This true story won First Place in last year's Criminal Lawyers Awards contest.
ONLY IN AMERICA . . .

Another one I like for kids is to tell them I have a great knock knock joke and then: "Ok, you start it."
The look on their wee faces is great while they work out what's going on.

Sample joke: A man walks into a restaurant and orders some soup. Waiter brings him a bowl of soup and the man asks "What kind of soup is this?" The waiter says "It's bean soup, sir". The man says "I don't want to know what it's been. I want to know what it is now."

Kids are great. Vaguely related then. My wife always carries a big bag of rubber duckies, and hands them out to kids (via parents) at restaurants, or stores or waiting rooms. Also gives one to the drive through at the bank - they have a long line in their window now. Locally she is known as the Duck Lady. Anyway, kids are super direct. The parents often trot the kid over to our table as they leave the restaurant for the forced "Thank you." But many times they say "Now what do you say to the lady?" Instead of thanks, the kids say things like "MINE!" or "I have a duck!" Or our favorite, "Can I get a different one?" The real fun is watching the parents horrified reactions, which we find hilarious.

|Just a note to mark the passing of "the world's foremost authority", and comedy legend, Professor Irwin Corey, at the untimely age of 102. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/07/a...es-at-102.html|
I was first introduced to him in 1966 or so, by a high school buddy whose dad had a recording of Corey live at the Playboy Club. My friend's dad was author Mordecai Richler's brother, so I gather they shared a similar sense of humour that liked to knock down pompous folks a few pegs. Corey had been doing the same shtick for decades prior to 1966, and decades since, but it never failed to get a laugh. You can find a great performance of his on the old Smothers Brothers show on Youtube. He was performing well into his 90s.
For me, Corey is right up there with Lord Buckley and Andy Kaufman.

|Understanding Engineers #1|
Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"
The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."
The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you anyway."

To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.
The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"
The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!"
The priest said, "Here comes the greens-keeper. Let's have a word with him." He said, "Hello George, what's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?"
The greens-keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind firemen. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime!"
The group fell silent for a moment. The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight."
The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if here's anything she can do for them."
The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"

What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers? Mechanical engineers build weapons. Civil engineers build targets.

The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?"
The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?"

Three engineering students were gathered together discussing who must have designed the human body.
One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints."
Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections."
The last one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"
Understanding Engineers #7
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
Understanding Engineers #8
An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."
He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week."
The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want."
Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.
Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"
The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog - now that's cool."
Two engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking at its top.
A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.
"We're supposed to find the height of this flagpole," said Sven, "but we don't have a ladder."
The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground. Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement, announced, "Twenty one feet, six inches," and walked away.
One engineer shook his head and laughed, "A lot of good that does us. We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"
Both of these engineers have since quit their engineering jobs and are currently serving in the United States Congress.

|This is something to think about when negative people|
are doing their best to rain on your parade…
Sadie was at her hairdresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband Hyman.
She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded: " Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty. You're crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?"
"We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"
"Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser. "That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?"
"We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome'sTiber River called Teste."
"Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s going to be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump."
"We're going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope."
"That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. "You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."
A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.
"It was wonderful," explained Sadie,"not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot.. And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodelling job, and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"
"Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."
"Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me..."
"Oh, really! What'd he say?"
He said: "Who f****d up your hair?"

|One year I ran the arcade at King's Dominion, a large theme park near Richmond, VA. I had over 100 various pinballs and video games. I had one little driving game that was broken waiting on some part. Had a steering wheel and gas pedal, you drove the car image around a track.|
I had a sheet of 8x11 paper taped over the coin slots, it said OUT OF ORDER on it. Even though that warning was taped over the coin slots, and the unplugged game was dark, nothing on the screen, the thing still made $25 a week consistently. They had to untape the sign, and lift it out of the way to insert their money.
That is 100 people a week, ignored the warning and managed to "buy" anyway.

|One Man's thoughts...|
I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.
My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, "Nothing."
She then said that’s what you did yesterday—to which I replied—I WASN’T DONE , SO I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING RIGHT NOW.
The reason I said "nothing" instead of saying "just thinking" is because she then would have asked, "About what?" At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions.
Finally I pondered an age old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they know? Well, after another beer, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question. Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn't really know, here is the reason for my conclusion. A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child." On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts."
I rest my case. Time for another beer, and then maybe a nap.

New law makes it legal for atheist doctors and nurses to refuse care…
by SP Team [The Science Post 01/19/2018]
JACKSON, MS – A new law in Mississippi has made it legal for doctors and nurses to refuse care to certain patients on religious grounds .
The law allows medical staff to refuse treatment to members of the LGBQT community on the grounds that it violates their religious beliefs. It would serve to reason this would also pertain to atheist doctors and nurses who could refuse to treat patients who are religious.
“No, no, no. This isn’t the point of the law at all,” said an angry senator Frank Danforth (R). “The law is supposed to protect doctors and nurses who follow the teachings of God and our Lord Jesus Christ from having to treat patients who practice an unholy lifestyle.”
Many doctors and nurses in Mississippi are against the law, but have expressed that they will also follow it to the letter and refuse treatment to patients who they feel are bigoted against certain lifestyle choices.
“Of course not all religious people are against LGBQT’s, just like not all atheists are against religion,” said Dr. Susan Jewer, atheist. “But if medical professionals are allowed to refuse care on religious grounds, I am more than happy to oblige.”
To date, there have been no reports of atheist doctors or nurses taking advantage of the new law.

|The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers. |
Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise." "Two months ago, my husband, Phil, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagine the pain that poor Phil must have experienced. "Phil was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain,'We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Phil's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold it in place." Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Phil. "Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "Thank the Lord, Phil is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely." All the men sighed with unified relief.
The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say. A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said, "Hi, I'm Phil.” The entire congregation held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife, the word is sternum."

In fact you are buying (it´s clearly stated) a "Mesa Boogie label" and "look Ma!! , it´s the GREEN STRIPE version!!, the one EVERYBODY raves about at My Les Paul Forum!!!!!
Somebody buying that is strictly buying "bragging rights" , all of his friends will envy him

A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said, "Hi, I'm Phil.” The entire congregation held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife, the word is sternum."

A picture of the inside of the chassis might have better explained the mystery. Even if the chassis was completely empty that and the cabinet would be worth maybe $100 to someone building an amp from scratch. The picture did show knobs so I assume that at least part of the circuit board is there.
Like I said it might have been worth the drive to check it out and make an offer depending on what was found. Other than the Lone Star amps Mesa Boogie's are great but only if you rewire them into something good.
I had wanted a Maverick since 1998 and when I finally found a head for $600 I jumped on it, only to find that it really sucked. I rewired the normal channel as a Lone Star Special which really rocked and was ready to rewire the one trick pony OD channel to something really nice when health issues intervened... (OK, no laughing! I was going to put in the SLO mod I developed for my Crate V33 head which sounded better than any Soldano I've seen. I just used the good parts of the preamp and left the bullshit out. I just need to find all of my drawings and gut pix I had downloaded 8 or 9 years ago... Good luck!)
BTW I noticed that George Allesandro is or was selling printed circuit boards he pulled out of various Fender xxx Reverb reissue amps for something like $75... One heck of a good deal considering how much the full amps sell for.

|When I see something like "blown chassis" I assume it is a layman trying to describe it. Chassis means the amp part to the guy, as opposed to teh cab and speaker, and blown is just a term meaning it doesn;t work. I had customers come in and complain their amp had "blown", and it needed a new 12AX7 in the preamp. Just as people outside of electronics call any wiring problem a "short". A wire breaks in their trailer lights, and they say the lights have a short in them. No point in telling them, "No, it is an open."|
I am guilty of this. On a solid state amp, if it blows fuses, I generically call it blown. I don't necessarily mean the output transistors are bad, just that the whole thing doesn't work. Not very technical but it speaks to the customer.

|What do cunnilingus and mob life have in common?|

|Um, I'll try this one...|
They both are an offer you cannot refuse?
The lesser known sailor, Felatio Hornblower?
You want a tongue in cheeks answer?
Either is better than Aer Lingus?
Oh. that's enough...

|You got close with #3|
One slip of the tongue and you're in deep $hit.

|I din't know whether to put it here, or in "Obscure 60's-70's Deep Tracks." Well the song in its original form was perhaps too much of a hit to be obscure, but in this form, well....... maybe not so much. And on a day when chaos seems to be the new normal, we need a reminder that in the long run, things will turn out to be much the same as they ever was. Without any more introductory remarks, here's a performer that needs no further introduction, you know him, you love him, here he is, the mighty Kermit!|
