On Life…

On life: Being born is like opening the door to the smorgasbord. You walk in the door and there is the most huge gorgeous array of food imaginable. So some people fill their plate with mashed potatoes and green beans only. Other people like me prefer to have a little taste of almost everything. Most of it tastes pretty good but some of it’s disappointing and some of it’s just downright nasty. When you leave, it’s sure been a great lunch. So you wipe your chin, burp and die.

It’s a joke, OK

cid:image002.jpg@01D256B6.DA24B100

Was at the bar the other night and overheard three very hefty women talking at the bar.

Their accent appeared to be Scottish, so I approached and asked, “Hello, are you three lassies from Scotland?”

One of them angrily screeched, “It’s Wales, Wales you bloody idiot!”

So I apologized and replied, “I am so sorry. Are you three whales from Scotland?”

And that’s the last thing I remember!

Some unrelated stuff I found interesting today:

gimba
Somebody who wants just for the sake of wanting something
“I have no need of an additional TV, but somebody has offered one for free. I want it so I am a gimba”

“If a song can’t be written in 20 minutes, it ain’t worth writing.” – Hank Williams tells it straight.

Key to happiness: a shitty memory.

Is that egg still good enough to safely eat?

Place the egg in a bowl of water. If the egg lays on its side at the bottom, it is still quite fresh. If the egg stands upright on the bottom, it is still fine to eat, but should be eaten very soon, or hard-boiled. If the egg floats to the top, it’s past its prime, and not good for eating.
