Re: The New Joke Thread

So yeah, awhile back I retired after working for the company some 30 years. Recently the company reached out and asked if I'd do some ad hoc, spot jobs - completely online, work from the boat stuff. Said sure, glad to help, can we talk about pay. But out of curiosity, can you tell me why you need me? Thought you guys hire bunches of kids right out of college or something. Was told yeah, they've got lots of new employees. And many of them are really magicians because they can turn everything they touch into more work for all their colleagues.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Why does CF underline many of the words in my posts?

More importantly....

Re: The New Joke Thread

They are “tags” defined somewhere in CF. You can click them, what for?

Because you've got "Auto link popular tags." switched on in your User CP options.

Fortunately, Even when you copy and paste the tags come with it.

Perhaps we should start a slush fund to make Zamboni more if a household name.

Not true. Anyone who's played ice will always appreciate the high from stepping on to a clean sheet of ice and taking that first crisp breath of air from above the freshly Zambonied ice.


BTW I'm in Charleston, SC, Chromebook and no issues with Scoldmaxs' posts.

Most of the world first heard of Zamboni from the movie Deadpool.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Every kid dreamed of being allowed to ride on the school's Zamboni, only the 9th graders were allowed to drive it.

Many decades ago

Thanks! Anybody need me I'll be tacking through the CF options sections. (sigh) If I don't check in by the end of the week DO NOT report me to the Coast Guard as overdue. I'll navigate my way out of there. Somehow.
