First we discovered TikTok was a Chinese spying app, then we discovered China was putting spyware in the electronics they sell us...

And today the fortune cookie in my Chinese food reminded me I needed to buy milk.

Re: The New Joke Thread

My girlfriend insisted on a fairy tale wedding.

Fair enough. Before the ceremony I gave her a loaf of bread and left her in the forest.

bulb" is perfectly correct
19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take

11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light

Re: The New Joke Thread

From an old episode of "The Practice."

A little 8 yr old girl got her face ripped off by a Rottweiler loose in the park. It took 11 stitches to put her lip back together and it wasn't a good job. Her family files suit and she was called onto the witness stand where she was cross examined by the defense attorney.

Attorney: "Did you walk over to the dog to pet it?"
Girl: "Yes."
A: "Did you come up behind the dog?"
G: "No."
A: "Did you sneak up on the dog?"
G: "No."
A: "Did you surprise the dog?"
G: "No."
A: "Did you antagonize the dog?"
G: "No."
A: "Is there any chance that this could have been your fault?"
G: "No."
A: "How close were you when the dog bit you?"
G: "Pretty close."
A: "Were you 12 inches away?"
G: "No."
A: "Were you 6 inches away?" Holding his hand out 6 inches away from her face.
G: "No."
A: "Were you 3 inches away?" Holding his hand 3" from her face.
G: "No."
A: "Were you 1 inch away?" Holding his hand 1" from her face.
G: Suddenly she lunges forward and bites 3 fingers on the attorney's hand! "Was that your fault?" she said sweetly.


She was awarded $150k plus free plastic surgery to correct her disfigurement.

Re: The New Joke Thread

[QUOTE=skipmac;3165540]This is something that has annoyed me for years but I do know why it's so.

Measurements on finished lumber is based on the original rough sawn board before planing and finishing. So an actual 2x4 is cut from a log but before it's sold the rough cut board is planed and sanded smooth leaving a 1 1/2 x 3 1/2.


I think the finished dimension is due to the saw blade kerf. I don't believe I've bought dimensioned lumber that was planed or sanded.

Re: The New Joke Thread

ah yes, the " Blue Jays"... Canada, a first cousin to the USA...but get real...." Canada" hardly qualifies as the " world"...seriously, Canada is the USA's "neighbor"...seriously....the name " biggest....baddest...the world...the world's best, etc...is thrown out with wild abandon these days...." the most beautiful woman in the world...etc, etc, etc....
By comparison, lets talk the World Rugby Cup....this is played by nations across the globe, including the USA...it's a true " world" cup, worthy of the name " world"....that's my whole point...not trying to diss the USA, Canada or the "World Series"...just trying to point out the ridiculous name...considering this is an all America's sport.
I live in the NE Florida area. We have the J'ville "International" airport, but to my knowledge, no international passenger flights leave or arrive at this airport.There is no USA customs personnel at this airport for passengers. At some previous time, an international flight landed here, and the name " International" was adopted...

This thread really started with a 2x4 not really being a 2x4....I'm sure many examples exist....how many " true" blondes do you know ?? Ok, I've rambled enuff

Re: The New Joke Thread

Some thread drift here- you do know who are the current world champions?

By comparison, lets talk the World Rugby Cup....this is played by nations across the globe, including the USA...it's a true " world" cup, worthy of the name " world"....that's my whole point...
