Re: The New Joke Thread

They originally had a one cylinder engine. The later hot rod version had two cylinders.
I'm old enough to see them driving around in Seattle when I was a teen.
Back then, I even saw a couple of them in used car lots.


GiLow,
My son has two Mini's. One is a Mini S (supercharged) and the other is an original version.
Both are metallic blue with white stripes.

I met the man who invented the part of a chart that explains what each symbol means.

He's a legend.

Re: The New Joke Thread

We tried Plan a, b, c, d but none worked.

But, Plan e just might take off!

Re: The New Joke Thread

If "womb" is pronounced "woom" and "tomb" is pronounced "toom" then shouldn't "bomb" be pronounced "BOOM"?

I hope that blows your minds!

Re: The New Joke Thread

Saw a sketchy looking man outside Walmart begging for money so he could buy the new life size Wonder Woman doll.

I swear, these heroine addicts are looking worse every year.

Re: The New Joke Thread

After my son’s team won the hockey tournament, their goal tender invited both of us to a party to celebrate...

It was the father, son and the goalie host...

Re: The New Joke Thread

I've finally realized that I've reached the age where

sexual harassment is a negotiated fringe benefit at my company

Maybe a slap on the wrist for workplace harassment, that was his real crime, abuse of his asymmetric power, but that was not taken so seriously back then.

Stupid to try to cover it up.

Hillary could've just said "none of your business" about the adultery issue, leave the possibility they have an open arrangement.

Monica and Hillary working together could've made #MeToo happen decades earlier, really should still put their weight behind it as a team.
Bill's error was lying to Congress (I cant believe Hillary let him do that ). If he had stood up and said, "yep, did it, it was good, will do it again given the chance"...it would have been over that day. A BJ in the Oval Office is not a crime.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Well the workplace sexual harassment issue would have been legit, but again compared to these days. . .

Re: The New Joke Thread

Sitting here while my wife, our grandaughter and her girlfriend, are out shopping. Beer is cold. And I'm too lazy to think up new jokes. So what the hell am I doing here?
