Re: The New Joke Thread

Socaldmax is looking very vacant today again


Yet again, finding his glamisdunes.com link in "View Source" and going to it gives me:

I think it's time he stopped linking to images at that domain.

Oh dear. So I will remove 6 letters from “faulty”, add 5 to get “short” and add 2 more to get “shorter”.
Awesome lateral thinking! I love it.

StuM and others yours are awesome too.

Do you need to put them all in the same place.

Stu, occasionally I have the issue. I found that if I log in, the issue goes away. It's weird but it works for me. Sometimes if I reload the page the issue goes away.

N.B. I am using the latest version of Firefox. I also use the Brave browser.

A sign of the times perhaps?

Or anywhere from 32 to 64 bits if they are UTF-16 or UTF-32 encoded Unicode

Dad: Son, congratulations. I'm sure you will remember today as the happiest day of your life.

Son: Thanks dad! But the wedding is tomorrow.

Dad: I know.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Recently, I bought a cartridge for my printer. It came in a box mounted on a card and wrapped in plastic. When I took it apart, I found that the printer cartridge itself was actually quite small, but they made the packaging unnecessarily large to make it harder to steal and to make the customer feel better about the high price.

I pointed this out to my wife and then mentioned how my weight gain over the years of our marriage should have the same effect: It made me seem more valuable and also made me harder for other women to steal.

She's still laughing.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Last Day on the Job

It was the mailman' s last day on the job after 35 years of carrying the mail through all kinds of weather to the same neighborhood.

When he arrived at the first house on his route he was greeted by the whole family there, who congratulated him and sent him on his way with a big gift envelope.

At the second house they presented him with a box of fine cigars.

The folks at the third house handed him a selection of terrific fishing lures.

At the fourth house he was met at the door by a strikingly beautiful woman in a revealing negligee.

She took him by the hand, gently led him through the door, and led him up the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had ever experienced.

When he had had enough they went downstairs, where she fixed him a giant breakfast, eggs, potatoes, ham, sausage, blueberry waffles, and fresh squeezed orange juice.

When he was truly satisfied she poured him a cup of steaming coffee.

As she was pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from under the cup's bottom edge. "All this was just too wonderful for words," he said, "but what's the dollar for?"

"Well," she said, "last night, I told my husband that today would be your last day, and that we should do something special for you. I asked him what to give you."

He said, "F**k him, give him a dollar."

The lady then said, "The breakfast was my idea."
