This was an awesome idea, Krunchdog!!!!

Let's place bets on how long we can make THIS thread last before we get muzzled.


Grrrrrrrrrr.

I propose an Official Spanish Inquisition Revival. Bounty on the head(s) of the Shoutbox Naysayer(s).

I got dibs on playing Torquemada.

We WILL get you, my pretty.

Kidding, of course. I can fit WAY more awful crap in a post than in the Shoutbox! And the Shoutbox wouldn't load pictures of my naked self anyway.

Oh, on that matter. For those of you who already have some, I'd like to buy them back. PM me.

That was the most requested one when it was first published, so I know there are too many of them out there for me to ever hope to retrieve them all.

Enjoy it in good health and with my blessings.

I'm being good. Do you know how tempted I am right now to drag this thread through the filthiest, meanest, most politically incorrect gutter I can mentally muster? Well, do you?

No Shoutbox! Harumph! Shit all over my new spring white bucks, why don't ya?

Really, this is just the same as if I went over to Chris' house and wiped myself with his brand new bathrobe. Dis, dis, dis!

Ummm, statistically, that would impede only 40% of all men.
You should consider other co-factors.

Edit: In truth, the only thing you'd be considering after 4 hours is a lidocaine injection and some dilaudid. Having ANY friends come see it after 4 hrs. would only be so that someone other than yourself can help you recall what it used to look like.

First, they came for the Democrats.

Next, they came for the Republicans.

That is a sad commentary on the state of the media these days. Haven't seen the video yet, but I understand they play a little loose with the timelines and what is going on. Koney was driven out of Uganda a number of years ago and is now a problem mostly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

I believe he was almost killed in the Congo two years ago.

It's a great example of how social media can be influential and invoke positive change.

However, child soldiers are a big problem in many countries of the world and while I applaud this effort to remove one leader, I hear many people discussing this video as if he is the only one in the world performing such a travesty when there are many countries where it is not only common, but even socially accepted.

Hopefully it will result in not only Koney's downfall but also a much better appreciation of the global issue.

If you are interested in another first hand look at the situation from someone who has witnessed the results, I highly recommend reading Romeo Dallaire's book.
They fight like Soldiers, They Die Like Children
It's not for the feint of heart but then again neither is the reality.

I had the pleasure, no honor, of hearing Mr. Dallaire do a speech on leadership in the non-profit sector that was based upon his experiences that he describes as his failed attempts as Force Commander of Unimar to try and stop the genocide in Rwanda. Obviously there is no comparison between the work as a non-profit leader in Canada and the situation in Rwanda but his speech centered around the psychological challenges of being a leader in general. When put into perspective of the challenges and mental anguish he endured (to the point of admitted attempted suicide upon his return.) then it really sets a perspective that can not be ignored.

Oops a bit off topic here but obviously I count Mr. Dallaire as a personal hero of mine and I believe both his books, the above plus Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda should be read by everyone who enjoys life in a free and democratic nation.

The revolution in Miranmar was led, in part, by two 13 year old twins.

In the places you are discussing, life expectancy is rather short, so you've got to kill a lifetime's worth of people and make as many babies as possible when you're still a juvenille.

I wish I were joking.

There's more to the Kony2012 video. Upon further research I've found there has been a lot of dissent surrounding the movement as a whole. I personally questioned the military intervention aspect, but this is only one objectionable piece of a much bigger puzzle.

It's easy to get sucked in when a video "pulls" at your emotions; I did. I question most everything, but the video got the better of me because there were children involved. It turned me from a libertarian socialist that abhors war and military intervention, to someone with a knee-jerk reaction supporting it. Don't get me wrong, I believe that military intervention can be just (after all other peaceful means have been exhausted), but there is one fundamental principal, and that is the people have to overwhelmingly agree to it-in this case the people of Uganda-and this definitely doesn't seem to be the case.

It's incontrovertible that Kony needs to be captured and brought to justice, but this will accomplish very little as it's a systemic problem in impoverished countries with corrupt president's and other curable contributing factors. The Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni-whom is a great friend of the U.S.-is wanted on war crimes...

If you read the articles and watch the video below (even do further research), it may change your view. It changed mine.

YouTube personality "Skweezy Jibbs" really nails it here:

Try to get past his affectations. What he says is a great summary of this KONY campaign.

Given that both the Ugandan and US Military have been actively hunting him down for a number of years, I don't know what a video will accomplish other than wider recognition of this man and perhaps the issue of child soldiers.

The reason Koney is largely in the Congo is because of its vast jungles and failed government. It is rather hard to find an kill someone without the cooperation of the local government and a more friendly terrain.

Spent yesterday up in the Muskokas, an absolutely beautiful day. Summer is coming quickly to Southern/Central Ontario this year. We weren't too far from Axiom, relatively speaking, but didn't really have time to drop in and say "Hi" (not sure if the plant was open on Saturday or not). Anyway, we bought a nice boat in Bala, the main reason for the trip (at a great price) and then went over to Muskoka Lakes Winery and sampled some of their award winning Cranberry and Blueberry wines smile . Afterwards we had lunch and coffee at the foot of the falls in Bala, just beautiful.

I'm actually not a wine fan. I'd be looking for beer.

But the trip still sounded nice and I'm deeply hurt that I wasn't invited.

Worse, you flaunt it in my face afterwards! grin

Why not just add pawpaw, so that all three of the indigenous fruits of North American can be included?? Poor pawpaw.

We were poor Spanish explorers, sent by the throne to look for new and exciting fruits. We didn't find any, so we had to kill everyone. We really didn't plan it, it just worked out that way. Sorry.

Hey, an opening to make fun of both our heritages at the same time....

Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz was on television when he used the word 'manana'. The host asked him to explain what it meant. Alejandro said that the term means "maybe the job will be done tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?"

The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish. "No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency,".

Where TF is Spring?!?

OK, I know one of you did it. Maybe it was a conspiracy between or among you. Maybe you've hidden it in someplace you think no one will ever look, like inside your pants. If that's the case, I'll just have to let the medical examiner find it for me. When I DO get it back, I'm not telling the Canada geese, so maybe they'll sweat to death.

How's 'bout a 'Bring Back the Shoutbox Rally' in Ottawa? We can make it like the Million Man Marches on Washington----the 23 Man March for free speech on Canadian websites. That's assuming I can get 22 more of you to join in.

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!! What is THAT 4-letter "B"-word doing on this site? Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill!

Hey! Look at that B & O ad! Their streamer looks like a tiny beer cooler for two 4 oz. cans. Eurotrash, pure and simple.

I am so over the Greek yogurt thing. At first, it was interesting. Now, if I try to eat it, I can't help thinking its' just Yoplait with 2 tsps. of flour added. I'm sorry. Did I ruin it for someone? Bandit still likes it.

I like Greek yogurt for the extra protein. A 12 pack of Chobani (asst. fruit flavors) is under $11 at our Costco. I keep a few stashed in the work frig right next to the Haldol Decanoate.

I had to post this *somewhere*

It's under a bridge in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. This is not my pic. It is not new to me. But I found myself thinking of it a lot lately.

I'm sorry I deleted it, but a friend emailed me a picture of Bill Clinton today. In it, Bill was entering a large room, about to walk up the 3 steps to the podium, both arms in the air in two big, static "howdys," sporting a gigantic smile.

The caption read: Did somebody mention Columbian prostitutes?

And while we're in the cocaine capital of the Milky Way with our best and brightest, I have a serious math problem I need help with. Well, OK, it's arithmetic. However...

There were 10 Secret Service agents (How come we don't refer to them as the SS?) and 11 military personnel. That makes 21. There were 20 women involved. I can't do fuzzy math, but I think there's still a problem.

Let's see. Poems can take any form. The form for a limmerick (still, a type of poem) is etched in stone.

It is always as follows:

There once was a man from_______ (Rhyme A)
Who used to go dancing in________ (Rhyme A)
When he got up to_______ (Rhyme B)
His his legs went_______ (Rhyme B)
And everyone pissed in their______ (Rhyme A)

5 lines, rhyme scheme A/A/B/B/A

EDIT: There really oughtta be a limmerick thread.
And in contemporay times, they're usually schmutzig.

Here you go, Bob!

I didn't find it, but I recreated it in Photoshop.

Yes.

I'm THAT good!

Gee, Ken, that kind of behavior for that kind of "reward" makes you a lot more like me than you'd like to admit.

I often wore clothing that irked others. Some advice: if you choose the day carefully in advance, you can get a lot more mileage outta your rayon shirt (or paisley chaps). Why are Hawaiian shirts always something other than cotton anyway?

A couple of mine are cotton. They're not Hawaiian, per se (I've only got one of those, as of last night), though.

There was a Hawaiian shirt-wearing fool.
These shirts he assumed were très cool.
He wears them only on Friday
When his co-workers say, "Why, Dave?"
His response is to quote The Golden Rule.

Just replaced a thermal fuse and an ON/OFF switch on the dryer. The cost of these parts were approx $130...they looked like they might be worth $3-4 apiece to make...what a scam!

There once was a man from Missouri
Whose bowels were not in a hurry.
To speed up his motions
He tried pills, plugs, and lotions,
But what ended up working was curry.

Thank you for Saturday, Peter. Awesome.

I'll keep my promise for today. Does anyone want to request a limmerick topic before I begin to compose? Careful, I DO have boundaries you know! OK, so they're magnetospheric. Whatever.

Thanks for the suggestion, Chris. Nice way to avoid my invitation for you to take me out for a $200 dinner.

It's not that it's too easy, but there'd be footnotes necessary for the sanctimonious. Footnotes and limmericks? Unheard of!

I was kinda hoping that someone would misinterpret "topic" and head straight for nominations.

OK, here's today's limmerick.

Ken, I've been meaning to ax. NoVA? Really? Soho (south of houston street--that's "howston," hot "hewston") was one thing. We even let Tribeca slide (triangle below Canal Street), but NoVA?

Will you please PM me details re: your ad space. I have a backlog of sig lines and I would love to have two running simultaneously. I will gleefully give you fi'bucks to post a new sig for me everyday, or several times a day. It's really a great deal!

Hey Bob,

I didn't mention anyone's name, I certainly didn't want too enter into any conspiracy plot or anything like that. If anybody asks, I'll tell them I don't know anything. Bob, if later on you start taking on some heat, and feel like you might be needing an attorney, let me know I might be able to find you one. Just specify though if you want one living or dead. With the prices they charge though, you might want to chose the later. LOL smile

Keep your own notepad on JP. That's what I do.

After my thesis is complete, I plan on selling the TV rights. It will be a "Breaking Bad & Dexter" inspired theme except that instead of a chem teacher turned meth cook or a serial killer who kills serial killers, it will be about a Phsyc Doc turned 'white van speaker salesman' who is secretly assassination drug reps who won't pay for decent lunches.

The power company has some guys in my neighbor's backyard this morning working on the power box back there. Hoping this means that we won't have as many outages any more. Not holding out a great deal of hope that we'll make it through this storm without an outage, though.

Wonder if I can get any dry ice around here.

You guys get all the cool stuff in stores down there. I don't think I've ever seen dry ice in a store.

So, what exactly would your average Joe be using dry ice for?

I'm guessing it's to put in his chest freezer as insurance in case the power goes out.

The Hulk was much smaller and much, much less angry. Apparently, all he needs is a bit of candy.

Prayers and well-wishes go out to the teachers today. One of them told me recently that November 1st is always the worst day of the school year. The kids always stay up past their bedtime the night before and come in either on a sugar crash from a night gorging or a sugar buzz from sneaking treats for breakfast.

You're trying to tell me you are not in the same shape?

We never get kids thanks to our very rural road combined with our long dark lane. We buy treats every year though. You know... just in case. By about 10:00ish we realize that "someone has to eat them."

I just turn all the lights off and watch a movie. That way, I don't have to buy the candy in the first place.

Bah. Humbug.

Actually I just go to the vault in the basement and count my money.

Sounds very familiar, Murph.

For us, it's that we live in an area that is otherwise Doctor's offices, schools, etc. Not a lot of homes.

When we first bought the house, I was excited to be one of those people that really go all-out on Halloween. I made a black cardboard cutout of a person with a big knife, and attached it to the window with a variable strobe light behind it to look like lightning. I put speakers in the window and played a custom-made spooky tape. I wanted to (but didn't get the chance) to replace the sample portraits in the studio with portraits of zombies and such. I wanted to swap out all the tracklight bulbs in there with green ones. I was pricing fog machines.

I'm still disappointed that all of that would be in vain.

It's not a political poke. It's an illustration of how problems aren't dealt with (anywhere). Your attempt to silence is exactly my point. This is a big problem.

The media is now doing the same thing i.e. silence in respect for the deceased.....don't question things....it's disrespectful....we need a cool down period....

Cam, "just another gun day in the u.s. of a." and your references to Saudi women are not even credible ways to start yet another divisive debate.

If you want to honestly talk about causes of violence, or mass shootings or gun rights, fine. Just don't expect anyone to take you seriously when your opening salvo is so utterly lacking in compassion and context.

I think we need gun reform in my country. And I am horrified and, yes, surprised by today's events. Your only references thus far are pretty blatantly anti-American. I want to heal and make things better. Your incessant penchant for bashing America is tired, and counterproductive to civil and respectful discourse.

Dear America;

Can we borrow your law requiring the government to respond to petitions with more than 30,000 signatures? Our government really, really needs a sense of humor.

P.S. you can keep that DeathStar that the Pentagon forgot to mention to Mr. President.

You answered 10 of 13 questions correctly along with 12% of responders.

Your score is better than 56% of responders and below 32%.

I missed 1, 7, 10.

12. How the hell am I supposed to know who the US Attorney General is unless he does incredibly stupid (or annoying) stuff to get on the front page of the news? I think he needs to step up his game.

The only cure for this one was about 14 hours. shocked

I have no idea what peppers they used, but that sauce had staying power. Felt like I was belching flames for a while. Chalk one up for humbling experiences. smile

The 2000 NBA draft is generally felt to be the worst in history. Will this year's draft approach that level of awfulness? It might. Check back in 5 years for a follow up post.

If JP were to get an A.A. in ethics, then he'd be the 3 degrees: JPS, B.S. (yes), M.D. (Ha! now THAT's funny), and A.A. (if he's not careful).

Don't worry. He will do like he always does. Stay here a couple weeks in the prime of summer and then go back to Ottawa.

I have a good friend very near his primary residence cottage which is 10 minutes from my house. In the 10 to 12 years I've been visiting my buddy there, I have seen him once, maybe twice if I think harder.

In other news, the Rob Ford entertainment show continues on. No need to wait for 'video at 11'. Just go to to thestar.com.

Warning, severe language.
Rob Ford caught WASTED on tape ranting about murdering someone.

I used the Youtube version instead of the newspaper version so you could enjoy the closed captioning. There are some classic lines here you don't want to miss.

Ya know, Tom, in the last 12 months I think I've aged 10 years in every respect, including my memory.

I only remembered it, because I always enjoy any and all images that stereotype and denigrate whole swaths of people and countries.

"...liars, thieves and birds." That's great! Was that rant done in a different "drunken stupor" than the "one" that included the crack?

Now if you can just find footage of him whipping basketballs at City Councilors heads and groins, you'd really have somethin' goin' awn.

Sorry, no basketball whipping, but now we have stories of organized crime types with suitcases full of cash wandering the neighborhood where the video was shot offering to buy it. I'm waiting for the 'concrete shoes' episode of the Rob Ford show.

Ya know what'd break this apart, a newly surfaced sex tape of Rob Ford and Chris Christy. Hell, now I gotta go brush my teeth, just like after every other time I throw up. Imagine being so fat, you can successfully smother any and all farts? Sorry, just trying for a little positive spin.

Sorry, no basketball whipping, but now we have stories of organized crime types with suitcases full of cash wandering the neighborhood where the video was shot offering to buy it. I'm waiting for the 'concrete shoes' episode of the Rob Ford show.


Ya know what'd break this apart, a newly surfaced sex tape of Rob Ford and Chris Christy. Hell, now I gotta go brush my teeth, just like after every other time I throw up. Imagine being so fat, you can successfully smother any and all farts? Sorry, just trying for a little positive spin.

Funny you should mention sex tapes. There is a rumour about another video of exactly that (sorry not with Chris Farley).

I'll be sure to post the links for you when it comes out.

Councillor: Mr. Mayor, do you still have a zero tolerance policy for drugs and gangs.

Mayor Ford: Yes.

Councillor: Mr. Mayor, have you purchased illegal drugs in the past two years.

Mayor Ford: Long pause...... Yes.


Honestly! Somebody needs to buy the movie rights to this stuff. I haven't been so amused by the news in my whole life.

In order to understand the arrogance, one has to know the history of this clown. He is one of four children from a very rich family whose father was in politics as well and quite well known in the area and prior to being elected mayor, Rob was a local councillor who appealed to the masses originally because he came across, especially to the large volume of immigrants, as just "one of the boys". Three out of the four offspring(obviously, him as well) have had drug and substance abuse problems in their lives. It was also quite well known that while in high school Rob was a drug dealer along with himself and his brother being a pair of the school bullies, so none of this really comes as a surprise. Intimidation and ridicule in his office now coming out from ex-staffers just adds to the character that he already was.

It is the old adage "a leopard never changes its spots".
Once a punk always a punk, he just happens to come from a "well-to-do" family who have protected him along the way.
The screws now are, however, tightening on him and something will happen soon.

Well, that's the story he's selling. There are more than one fiscal conservative on Toronto city council. I find it hard to believe he is the best, or even capable of leading the charge. He certainly is good at saying BILLIONS!!

The Star had a good breakdown of the claimed vs actual savings. He has pushed the city in a more responsible fiscal direction, but there will be a lot of fallout from his time as mayor.

I hope for Toronto's sake that John Tory decides to run for mayor.

In some ways yes, however, in other ways he is taking credit for stuff he had nothing to do with, in fact, he took credit for the cities' recent 250 mill. surplus, despite the fact that the bulk of that surplus was generated from a real estate fee implemented by the previous administration that was at the top of his list to eliminate as soon as he was elected.

Agree on the first point.

The Star is a poor source where politics are concerned. They basically gave McGinty a free pass on anything he did when he was premier yet were trying to undermine Ford from the moment he became mayor. Everyone knows where the Stars politics are aligned.

John Tory would be a better choice, but has stuck his foot in his mouth, big time, in the past.

Ford's latest quote is better than I could have ever dreamed we'd catch a person in public office saying during a live media conference. It's like he hired Seth Macfarlane to be his speech writer.

Even after removing the objectionable word in respect for the Axiom board keepers, I'll still put in a spoiler button with a warning it's offensive language. Still, it's just so completely unbelievable. He's either completely lost it or he's looking to publish later.

Click to reveal..

Yeah, the Star has a bias. That does not make their numbers wrong. It is funny to see how the Star seems to choke on any admission that Ford (or more correctly the Ford administration) actually has made some progress.

Bob, it's already a reality show and I bet more people around the world tune in every night for the next episode than any other Canadian show.

I can't wait to see how he tops his most recent performance. The man has talent.

The other night, I was about to take the first bite of hot pizza and thought, "Ooh don't burn the roof of your mouth!"

At that very moment I realized that it is NOT the roof of my mouth, it is the ceiling of my mouth. How could we have gotten that so wrong for so long?

Wouldn't one have to suck the pizza through one's nose to hit the "roof" of one's mouth? Ew!

Does it break forum rules if I advertise and post a link for my parents house for sale? There may be a local member of the forum (or they may know someone) that's looking for a beautiful lakeside house in the country.

Thanks

You just need to be more sly.

You should have posted a story about how sad you are that your parents are selling a beautiful home on the _____ Lake and how some of your best memories in life came from growing up at nn ___ Road and that you are insulted that your parents are only asking nnnnnnn for such a treasure trove of irreplaceable family memories.

Well, Cam, it's been more than 72 hours without a public response at all, let alone a "nay." I'd say you're good to go.

BTW, How many beds/baths? One or two stories? What part of Peterborough? frpl? hdwd fls th-out? d & d, any WTW? Sq. ft? Parking? Yard? How far from schools? Etc., etc.?

No, this is not an ad, really. I PERSONALLY am dying to know the answers to these questions. Plus, I really like your folks.

Well, here it is - linky.

I never thought I would get so emotional when my parents put it up for sale. I knew it was coming, but it still really sucks. It's a beautiful place to live. I wanted to keep it as a cottage (it is in the heart of cottage country) but it's just not feasible.

Peace

I did see that Cam. Although just yesterday. I rarely go into Facebook anymore but yesterday I was pretty, 'clears throaght' tired after a very late night out for the ECMAs East Coast Music Awards. So I needed something mindless during to do for a while.

It sounds like a beautiful spot. I can imagine the memories there would be like postcards.

I went through the same thing when my parents sold our house. Beautiful, 3 story, century home that my Dad bought for an absolute steal (we were just a shade above poor at the time.) Since he was a kid, he had been spending a lot of his time doing all the handyman work for the three ancient sisters who lived there. They barely paid him ('barely paid us' as I got old enough to cut the grass, paint, etc.) but it paid off in the end as he was practically handed over of the nicest houses in town.

I remember talking myself out of buying it. It was too far from work, especially for Sharon who did shift work as a nurse at the time and I knew heating it was like a mortgage all of it's own. Still, it was home I'm hoping it's still around and goes for sale if I ever retire.

What a bunch of maudlin sissies! Boo-hoo, my folks are selling the place I always called "home."

If you ask me, you're both lucky that your folks didn't thrown you out of "the place I always called home" when you were 12!

I can't "know" it but, I can "feel" what terrible children you were.

I have to go to work now, but would you do me favor while I'm away today? Grow up!

(I know, I know, that REALLY oughta end with an emoticon, but I can't find one for: "No, pussies, I really mean it.")

WOW!! That was REALLY fun!

It is a monstrous release to say such horrible things to or about people you actually like and respect---or even people for whom you have no feelings at all, but I wouldn't publicly say that about Mark and Tom, well, not here, in this post.

Seriously, Cam & Murph, it must be a drag to see the family home get sold. And both of you have very tightknit families, just like the old Irish clans that you don't know you still belong to. It was where you grew up and learned how to do bad things and not get caught. That alone must make it dear to you.
(Now THAT sentence, I DO mean!)

Jack, I was adopted outta foster care and couldn't have gotten luckier. My sister (also adopted) and I had over 40 cousins. We knew as school children that each of our parents was the glue in their families (7 for Mom, 5 for Dad), and that we got the best of the lot. We were the only ones to go to college and grad school. Lucky, indeed!

They were always supportive and encouraging, academically and otherwise. They lived with a rock band in the bsmt for 4 years.

Most of all, they provided me with a firm foundation from which to launch my fake attacks w/o notice! Thanks for asking.

Edit: Before anyone goes thinking all "Bostony and Beacon Hilly," I grew up in a blue collar 'hood. My Mom took in sewing and my Dad opened the doors on the subway.
Ahh, from such humble beginnings to this! Pathetic, pathetic.

Bob, Cam and many other of you sarcastic b___s are, and continues to be, people that I wish I could hang around with more than what realistically might have been that only time in a lifetime.

Where I grew up, if you weren't being made fun of by your friends, it meant that you better look out because you must have pissed them off.

It was kind of the ultimate, passive aggressive society. We were only polite to strangers, elders and people we didn't like. As long as you were still getting hit with sarcastic zingers, you knew you were good with your friends. If they were being nice to you, it was a form of exclusion.

Edit:
Ken has no honor.

It was kind of the ultimate, passive aggressive society. We were only polite to strangers, elders and people we didn't like. As long as you were still getting hit with sarcastic zingers, you knew you were good with your friends. If they were being nice to you, it was a form of exclusion.

Bingo, (on the part before the "edit.")!

I don't understand the Ken part? Who's Ken?

Wow. I have been ignoring the Shoutbox thread since way back when the Shoutbox went away.

Funny thing about this. AlaskanAVGuy has truly been trying to make a lot of friends lately by showing his "love" for people not just here, but same tone over on AVS, and I stumbled (ok, not really *stumbled*) across the same type of pissy tone over at HomeTheaterForum as well. He must have a LOT of friends now. Interesting that the accounts are all just a couple of weeks old and he has made so many new friends.

Thanks! I love a good Internet meme. But I'll have to be careful not to overdo it, or this place will look like the Weezer "Pork and Beans" video.

If all of us put our heads together, we could not come up with a number for "JP Overdoes It."

Wait! Didn't the REAL shoutbox get removed 'cause of y, y, yu, yu, you? No! Now I remember!!! Fred took a dump in the shoutbox and there was no one willing to clean it out and disinfect it! Well that may have "been the straw, " but I think you built the f'n camel.

Hey!! It was empty and I couldn't wait. Besides, any self respecting shoutbox should flush every 24 hours.

True.

It should follow more of a Borat bag model as opposed to a full septic system.

I you don't understand my reference, I suggest you watch the movie. Actually, No, I can't reasonably suggest that and retain my honor.

I went through a McDonald's drive thru on the way to work this AM. After sitting on my desk for 45 minutes, the coffee is now at the temperature I like to drink it.

I was just at the supermarket. I HAD only 19 items in my cart on my way to the 20-items-or-less register, but I passed Twizzlers and Mini P-nut Butter cups, and a coupla/three items more on my way, and, well, I ended up with 24 items.

I let the man with one item behind me go ahead of me.

The next guy in line had about 12-15 items in his cart. I apologized for having four more than I should. He said he let go of that kind if stuff years ago. "Good for you," I said. "The less stress the better."

As the cashier was bagging (I always help bag) the last couple of items, I held out my charge card for her. The man behind me said, "Thank God it's a card. If it had been I check book, I would have lost it!" LMAO!!

The game I like to play at the supermarket is is with those people that insist in putting the spacer bar between thier stuff and my stuff, no matter how much distance I leave between us. I'm always amazed at how paranoid some people get. Do they really think that the checkout clerk is going to mistake the 3' of empty space between thier pile and mine?

This behavior seems especially prevalent in senior ladies so now if they plunk down the stick and give me 'the look' that says "why didn't you put a stick down yourself, young man?" I pick up the stick and slide it way back in the holder rail where they cant reach it. Then I stand back and watch the look of panic on thier faces.

Murph, they just don't want the checkout girl thinking the 96-pack of Magnums are for her.

Can't fault them, really.

Sadly, we can't buy liquor in our supermarkets. If we could, I'd make a point of sneaking bottles into thier piles so the clerk would have to loudly exclaim "I'm sorry Mam, but your 7 mini-bottles of Jack Daniels puts you over the 20 item limit."

Sorry, I guess I'm in a crude mood this morning.

I just noticed in the photo that I posted that the White one is not labeled as "Magnum". Figures.

I place the space bar perpendicular to the belt sometimes. That unsettles people as well. And it will keep them from talking to you.

Have you seen the TV ad where the beautiful young woman exits her car in stopped traffic to run over the tops of the vehicles ahead of her to get to the Magnum delivery truck? I think she thought it was carrying condoms.

That actress has one of the best one liners ever in the film "the to do list"

She surprises a scruffy Bill Hader with the line " you got a dick under that poncho?"

Great movie. Hilarious.

During my years in Tucson and Cohcise County, I wish I had a dollar for every time I've used that line.

Seriously though, Bill Hader is great! He's so "off" and has no shame.
