let's get started on the decimal system vs. American fraction.....ha ha ha ha...no, let's not....

and the money system....nickel..dime...quarter (what other country has a 1/4?

Why is the American "World" series only played by American teams?

NASA is metric, but the country isn't....wassup wid dat ??

Why is a 2 x4 not really a 2 x4....???

The mind boggles.....

'Twas in the era of Clinton/Lewinsky and John Cleese (of Monty Python)m was being interviewed on a US chast show. The interviewer asked what he thought the difference was between English people and US citizens.



He answered:
There are three differences:
1. We are separated by a common language
2. When we hold a world championship we invite teams from other countries
3. When we meet our head of state we only kneel on one knee.

Re: The New Joke Thread

My ex-wife used to constantly complain that I left the toilet seat up.

I always swore to her that I didn't. I also questioned her as to why she always took a flying butt leap onto the toilet before looking? She had no answer for that, but continued to complain.

One day I marched into the bathroom with her and pointed to the seat. "What is that??" I asked her. She replied, "The toilet seat."

I pointed to the toilet lid. "What is that??" She replied, "The other toilet seat."

I sighed, "I rest my case."



Some other time I'll tell you about the enlightening discussion we had about the relationship between checking account balance and the number of checks left in the checkbook.

In a local secondary school, one of the classes was known by the teaching staff as 'the planks'.

Instead they were hanging over the side everyday to tighten the nut. Being stupid is hard work.

The bass player then spent the next few years touring with some of the biggest bands in the country

He eventually got bored of just staying in America so he found the genie again and said, “I wish to be the best bass player in the world.”

The genie responded “your wish is my command.”

Soon, he was on a world wide tour. But he again eventually got bored and found the genie one last time and said, “I want to be better than any bass player has ever been.”

Suddenly he was on tour as the rhythm guitarist of a middle school cover band.

What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians?


A drummer.

Re: The New Joke Thread

A bassist walks into a music ship and approaches the guy at the counter.
"I'm thinking of branching out, learning a new instrument."
"Ok sir," replied the clerk, "What did you have in mind?"
"How about this?" asked the bassist.
"Sir, that's a fire extinguisher," said the clerk.
