    George,

    Matter or batter for all the fish earlier on in this thread?

    Or like the deal "What's this about battered women?? I prefer
    mine fried". :P

    We now will pause 3 minutes for drooling. <G>

    Careful; computers are electrically powered. . .

    Even on batteries...which run down so quick. Just like the Samsung
    A10, A11, and A12 Android phones...all 3 of those are a joke!! They
    don't hold a charge, and when they completely die, not even plugging
    a charger into them will help...the phone is basically toast.

    drumsticks are normally dark (my fave). . .

    I use two large ones (w skin-on & bone-in) for the base of my rhino
    soup (or 4, when cooking for the whole fam damily)

    I'm finishing off some chicken nuggets...but when I went shopping today
    (it's supposed to be stormy here the next few days), I stocked up on
    bread, lunch meat, White Castle cheeseburgers, 3 minute pizzas, diet
    green tea citrus (now in 2 liter bottles), and Little Debbie Cosmic
    Brownies (my sweet treat). I also picked up some extra Depends (having
    to deal with incontience is a b!+ch)...and as folks get older, they're
    going to have to deal with it. As comedian Jeff Foxworthy notes, "you've
    got the young ones going out of diapers, and the grandparents going into
    them". :P

    They say everything tastes like chicken; I say everything except
    chicken done properly -- it's just DELICIOUS! & tastes like MORE.

    Or like "The Far Side" cartoon, where this cow is cooking hamburger
    on the grill, and he says "I think we taste like chicken". I wonder if
    that's where Chick-Fil-A got their inspiration? <G> Too bad their peach
    milk shake is only served during the summer months.

    She wanted a facelift, but her huge butt was dragging it down too much,
    so he opted to add more sag to her butt to unline her face by going the other direction!

    Or she had Zachary Disease...her face looked Zachary like her butt. :P

    He just finished saying it was free -- a bill saying anyting but
    "$0.00" would be illegal at that point.

    That's like the story of the guy who got a bill for $0.00 from the store.
    He threw it in the trash. Next month, he got a "second notice/past due".
    Again, he threw it in the trash. Then, he got a nasty letter, threatening
    him with arrest for non-payment. So, he promptly sat down, and wrote a
    check for $0.00 and mailed it off. The store didn't bother him again (True Story).

    My doc's receptionionst tried to bill me for a missed appointment; I presented her with a list of the time Io'd spebnt waiting past my given appointmenmt slot, & it added up to more than the 24 hours notification required. She said she'd need to discuss it with her boss (my doctor,
    who told heer to back off, then asked me if discplinary action was
    needed; I said no, she was only trying to do her job as the schools trained. . .)

    In central Arkansas, you need to give at least 24 hours notice of a cancellation. However, in extreme emergencies, they'll waive the no-show
    fee. More often than not, they're calling me to reschedule, as the doctor
    is ill, out of town, running late, etc.

    Mayhaps they're offering this web-based lookup to patients as a free service & giving all y'all exactly what you've paid for?

    I have no idea. I've got the patient portal with several area facilities.
    I remember over 50 years ago that the family doctor did EVERYTHING. Now,
    you have all these extra specialists.

    Q: Why did the scarecrow get the job promotion?
    A: He was outstanding in his field.

    That's because it was too far to go back into the house.

    I got promoted at my job and my new office is up in a tree house.
    I am a branch manager.

    Never mind barking up the wrong tree to get ahead.

    George,

    It may not have been government-sponsored; quite possible someone like
    P&G commissioned it to see if a fart deoderant would have enough of a market.

    I read in a book 45 years ago that most all perfumes have a bit of the
    scent of excrement. :P I haven't worn cologne or after shave lotion in years...but I've been around men and women, who you'd think took a bath
    in it!!

    I thought of the one where the guy was in a coma for 20+ years.
    Finally his wife brings in an old boombox & plays her old New Kids on
    the Block cassette; he woke up to say, "turn that <congress> off!"

    I have another name for the rap music, but I can't say it in mixed
    company. Basically, there's no melody to it...it's just chanting words,
    and every other word is a profanity. As my late wife said "If that's music...we're doomed".

    There really was a guy who could do that. He was on stage, so I doubt
    they had reactions to the smell (these people have the ability to suck
    up air into the anus, so it's not old stale product of fermentation comining out, thus barely any, if any, smell. . .

    That's only after a colonoscopy is completed.

    Sounds like the question why they call them "Branch Banks". Money does
    not grow on trees. No, wait a minute...tell that to the government. <G>

    Mugger with a gun, "Give me all your money; Oh, I see you're a congressman; give me all MY money!"

    Q: How can a deaf person tell a politician is lying?
    A: The politician's lips are moving

    I've seen bloopers about "the president of the deaf school voiced
    his resignation today"...but the one I saw today gave me a good laugh.


    One I wrote:
    "I see," said the blind man, as he looked through a knothole in a barbed wire fence.

    "What do you see?" askerd the deaf-mute.

    The quadriplegic just walked off in disgust.


    "The preacher said that the nudist camp must be watched carefully". <BG>

    Two old Catholic priess were watching a local 'house of ill repute', as
    they'd heard of some real debauchery going on & hoped to identify those who could use some old fashioned penance next confession.

    They saw a rabbi enter into the place & one remarked, "Well, that tells it
    then - lost & reprobate 'e is."

    "Aye," said the other, pointing to a Protestant minister, "& that one not
    much better. I guess we'll have to really rail about those Protestants in Sunday's sermon."

    Just then they saw a fellow Catholic priest enter in.

    "Aye & begorrah, one of the poor ladies must be wanting to confee her sins!" they both exclaimed in unison.

    I've not had a Samsung; I went from generic Android bar phone to iPhone6
    where I'm staying. . . replaxed batteries once & she's holding a charge reasonably (I carry a portable charger pack with me, with enough juice to charge my iPhone fully twice, or once & charge my companion's hone once, as well(it has two output USB ports)

    I'm finishing off some chicken nuggets...but when I went shopping today (it's supposed to be stormy here the next few days), I stocked up on

    going to have to deal with it. As comedian Jeff Foxworthy notes, "you've
    got the young ones going out of diapers, and the grandparents going into them". :P

    I got so mad aty McDonald's for swiutching to all white meat nuggets (dry ^ flavourless; I like Burger King's -- all dark meat, & chjeaper, too --
    usually on sale for $2 for 20; takes over $5 to buy 6 at McDonalds of the crummy white meat ones. . .

    Or like "The Far Side" cartoon, where this cow is cooking hamburger
    on the grill, and he says "I think we taste like chicken". I wonder if that's where Chick-Fil-A got their inspiration? <G> Too bad their peach
    milk shake is only served during the summer months.

    Never had a peach shake, but now I want one. . . I'll have to stick with my occasional avocado shake from Coco Tea. . .

    store.
    He threw it in the trash. Next month, he got a "second notice/past due". Again, he threw it in the trash. Then, he got a nasty letter, threatening him with arrest for non-payment. So, he promptly sat down, and wrote a

    is ill, out of town, running late, etc.

    Most doctors are reasonable, unless they've contracted with the practice; as one guy who wanted $25 to complete a parking placard application (no
    disputing I qualified, just said they had fixed fees in the practice for each service; I'm thinking a decent human being would've paid it himself; later I waas at a rehab centre for a refresher on how to tie shoes on-handed &
    greeted a doctor I knew; we went for a vending machine coffee; during the conversation, I mentionerd the incident with the parking placard application
    & he said mail it to him &he;'kkl do it, no charge. I said /i'd include a
    SASE, & he said not to bother, as they supplied him with stationery &
    postage. Now THAT is a doctor.

    In this new town, my new doctor started our dfirst visit by asking, "Why'd
    you fire your last doctor?"(likely wanting to be sure I'm not one of those
    who bounce around doctor to doctor trying to find one to prescribe opiods); I explained, he said that made sense.

    His locum was his wife(also a GP) & one time I said to my pharmacist, "My doctor's off sick, so his wife wrote me this prescription for pain pills."

    Luckily the pharmacist knows me, & glanced cursorily at the screen while putting in the doctor, & filed it without comment.

    Still with the same docs 25 years later, but primarly see the wife now,. as the Mr took a leave for several years & I got used to her.

    She's been known to, noting my need for new interview clothing for a job
    search I was embarking on, hand me a few hundred dollars for it, & another
    time paid for the Heart Monitor rental I needed. . .

    I'm sure my old dentist dropped some billing items for me, as when he
    retired, my bills started getting higher, with no change in what I went in
    for & how often. . . these new bills were legit (I checked)

    Good people abound, like roses, but do watch out, as with roses, for the pricks. . .

    Q: Why did the scarecrow get the job promotion?
    A: He was outstanding in his field.

    That's because it was too far to go back into the house.

    It wasn't, but he lacked tyhe brains to realize that.


    ... Truer words were never spoken; except in a courtroom.


    I'd've gone with:
    ... Falser words were never spoken; except in a courtroom, or in Congress.

    I can always tell when someone is lying just by looking at them.
    I can tell when they're standing too.

    Q: How can you tell if ghosts are lying?
    A: Itís easy. You can see right through them.

    Apparently there is bi-partisan agreement in Congress that medicinal
    marijuana should be allowed for the purpose of relieving arthritis pain...

    In other words, there is joint support for joint support for joint support...

    George,

    Mugger with a gun, "Give me all your money; Oh, I see you're a congressman; give me all MY money!"

    D@mn right!! <G>

    One I wrote:
    "I see," said the blind man, as he looked through a knothole in a
    barbed wire fence.

    "What do you see?" asked the deaf-mute.

    The quadriplegic just walked off in disgust.

    Or there's this wooden fence outside of the insane asylum, and one
    hear's a number being repeated by this crowd. Well, there's a little
    peephole in the fence, and this one guy on the other side decides to
    take a look through and see why they're saying "Twenty-Eight" over
    and over again.

    He gets poked in the eye, and they're now chanting repeatedly
    "Twenty-Nine". <G>

    Two old Catholic priess were watching a local 'house of ill repute', as they'd heard of some real debauchery going on & hoped to identify those who could use some old fashioned penance next confession.

    They saw a rabbi enter into the place & one remarked, "Well, that tells

    "Aye & begorrah, one of the poor ladies must be wanting to confee her sins!" they both exclaimed in unison.

    I like the one where this preacher confronted his congregation one Sunday morning. Apparently, one of the members had been spreading rumors that he
    was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. He vehemently said he opposed what they did...and demanded that the person in the congregation step forward, confess their sin, and repent of it, to be restored to fellowship.

    No one moved or said a word.

    The preacher repeated his stern message, saying "The Judgment Of The
    Lord will be upon you if you keep quiet".

    Suddenly, this pretty young woman, quietly stood up, and said "Pastor,
    I want to apologize for any confusion there was caused about that
    statement. I never said that you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan".

    "I just said you were a grand wizard under the sheets!!" <BG>

    The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the entire
    congregation roared in raucous laughter!!

    George,

    Up late last night, eh?

    Nature and a nightmare woke me, along with hunger. Since I didn't want
    to go right back to sleep after eating a couple of turkey sandwiches, I
    decided to work at the computer. I had also taken an Ibuprofen, and I was waiting for it to kick in.

    I've not had a Samsung; I went from generic Android bar phone to
    iPhone6 where I'm staying. . . replaxed batteries once & she's holding
    a charge reasonably (I carry a portable charger pack with me, with
    enough juice to charge my iPhone fully twice, or once & charge my companion's hone once, as well(it has two output USB ports)

    I've always had Android phones...support and releases seem more often
    than for iPhones.

    I got so mad aty McDonald's for swiutching to all white meat nuggets
    (dry ^ flavourless; I like Burger King's -- all dark meat, & chjeaper,
    too -- usually on sale for $2 for 20; takes over $5 to buy 6 at
    McDonalds of the crummy white meat ones. . .

    Agreed...I prefer Burger King's nuggets.

    Never had a peach shake, but now I want one. . . I'll have to stick
    with my occasional avocado shake from Coco Tea. . .

    I didn't get one yesterday, as I was eating on the way back home from shopping. Yes, I shopped hungry, but I got everything I wanted.

    I heard it was the IRS & the $0.00 payment broke their computer. . .

    It wouldn't surprise me. He should've asked for a refund. <G>

    Most doctors are reasonable, unless they've contracted with the
    practice; as one guy who wanted $25 to complete a parking placard application (no disputing I qualified, just said they had fixed fees in the practice for each service; I'm thinking a decent human being
    would've paid it himself; later I waas at a rehab centre for a
    refresher on how to tie shoes on-handed & greeted a doctor I knew; we
    went for a vending machine coffee; during the conversation, I
    mentionerd the incident with the parking placard application & he said mail it to him &he;'kkl do it, no charge. I said /i'd include a SASE, &
    he said not to bother, as they supplied him with stationery & postage.
    Now THAT is a doctor.

    There was a story of a bank (I want to say Seattle) several years ago,
    where you had to get to a parking garage to get to the bank. Well, if they validated your ticket, you could park for free. However, the validation
    only took place for a deposit or withdrawl, and not just cashing a check.

    Well, this guy was rather annoyed with that, and he said "I have a very
    large amount of money in my account. I want to close it out, immediately,
    if not sooner". The teller summoned the manager, and when the guy was told
    that was the policy, he said "that enforced his decision"...I want all of
    my money...NOW!!". So, they grudgingly closed his account (with several thousand dollars), and prepared him a cashier's check...but they still
    wouldn't validate his parking garage ticket. So, he paid that in what
    cash he had besides the now very large cashier's check, and took it to
    a competing bank across town.

    Needless to say, he inquired what their policies were, and there was
    no such restriction on what a transaction was. So, he said I'd like to
    open an account here, as I just closed out the account from a competing
    bank whose policies were not as yours are. They were ready to kiss his
    feet!!

    In this new town, my new doctor started our dfirst visit by asking,
    "Why'd you fire your last doctor?"(likely wanting to be sure I'm not
    one of those who bounce around doctor to doctor trying to find one to prescribe opiods); I explained, he said that made sense.

    He took a turn for the nurse.

    His locum was his wife(also a GP) & one time I said to my pharmacist,
    "My doctor's off sick, so his wife wrote me this prescription for pain pills."

    Wow.

    Luckily the pharmacist knows me, & glanced cursorily at the screen
    while putting in the doctor, & filed it without comment.

    Good deal.

    Still with the same docs 25 years later, but primarly see the wife
    now,. as the Mr took a leave for several years & I got used to her.

    Good deal.

    She's been known to, noting my need for new interview clothing for a
    job search I was embarking on, hand me a few hundred dollars for it, & another time paid for the Heart Monitor rental I needed. . .

    That was nice of her.

    I'm sure my old dentist dropped some billing items for me, as when he retired, my bills started getting higher, with no change in what I went
    in for & how often. . . these new bills were legit (I checked).

    Amazing.

    Good people abound, like roses, but do watch out, as with roses, for
    the pricks. . .

    Too many of the latter in the world...and not just on males. :P

    It wasn't, but he lacked tyhe brains to realize that.

    Now, I'll hear that song "If I Only Had A Brain". Hmmmm..sounds like the
    song for every member of the US Congress. :P

    ... Falser words were never spoken; except in a courtroom, or in
    Congress.

    That, too.

    I can always tell when someone is lying just by looking at them.
    I can tell when they're standing too.

    Q: Do you have trouble lying??
    A: No, I lie quite well, thank you.

    Never believe anything until officially denied.

    Q: How can you tell if ghosts are lying?
    A: Itís easy. You can see right through them.

    It ghost to show you that the lie has many forms, but the truth is always
    the same.

    Apparently there is bi-partisan agreement in Congress that medicinal marijuana should be allowed for the purpose of relieving arthritis
    pain...

    In other words, there is joint support for joint support for joint support...

    They are so disjointed that Mary Jane wouldn't know them.

    I read in a book 45 years ago that most all perfumes have a bit of the scent of excrement. :P I haven't worn cologne or after shave lotion in years...but I've been around men and women, who you'd think took a bath
    in it!!

    I haven't seen that one (excrement in colognes) but I do know the highest quality ones are based on whale vomit. . .

    I had an o0nline buddy, who would ho into anaphylactic shock when passing someone that perfumed, even outdoors. . . he suddenly stopped replying online -- good xgance one finallty offed him & it was too far gone by the time emergency persennel arrived (if anyone bothered to call 911, instead of recording his dying flails on their phone) (it's happened, but with a guy drowning in a mountain whirlpool)

    So, another unnecessary law passed (it's against the law, in BC, to do
    nothing when someone needs help.)


    I thought of the one where the guy was in a coma for 20+ years.
    Finally his wife brings in an old boombox & plays her old New Kids on the Block cassette; he woke up to say, "turn that <congress> off!"

    I have another name for the rap music, but I can't say it in mixed company. Basically, there's no melody to it...it's just chanting words,
    and every other word is a profanity. As my late wife said "If that's music...we're doomed".

    New Kifds wasn't [C]rap music -- they were bubble gum-y pop/pap.

    I get kids mad at me, as I will argue that rap isn't music, it's just a junglelike beat. Whereas music is the harmonious interplay of sound. Ain't nothing harmonious about cRap music. . .

    If you want to swear like that, go back to your grade 7 Smoke Hole. .

    There really was a guy who could do that. He was on stage, so I doubt they had reactions to the smell (these people have the ability to
    suck
    up air into the anus, so it's not old stale product of fermentation comining out, thus barely any, if any, smell. . .

    That's only after a colonoscopy is completed.

    I don't know about that, but this guy exercised his colon muscles since a child, to bring in air or water & to send it out in a controlled jet. .

    I think it's on YouTube. . .

    Another lady plays the kazoo from some lower spot or other (she reaches up under her large skirt to inserty the kazoo, then plays the US anthem. . .

    My son has recently taken up an interest in music. We're constantly going
    back and forth trying to stump the other with trivia. He thought he had me
    when he chorused, "Hey, dad, what genre are national anthems?!" I laughed, "That's easy!"
    "Country!"

    Q: What do you call communist snipers?
    A: Marxmen

    Q: What do you call a guy who wonít stand for the National Anthem?
    A: Neil.

    I was at a baseball game singing the National Anthem, when a friend leaned
    over and asked, "What are ramparts?"
    I told him "oh you know... horns... hooves..."

    PornHub should call their intro music the "Smash-ional Anthem"

    There was a story of a bank (I want to say Seattle) several years ago, where you had to get to a parking garage to get to the bank. Well, if they validated your ticket, you could park for free. However, the validation
    only took place for a deposit or withdrawl, and not just cashing a check.

    Old Age & Treachery will always overcome Youth & Skill. . .

    Well, this guy was rather annoyed with that, and he said "I have a very large amount of money in my account. I want to close it out, immediately,
    if not sooner". The teller summoned the manager, and when the guy was told that was the policy, he said "that enforced his decision"...I want all of
    my money...NOW!!". So, they grudgingly closed his account (with several thousand dollars), and prepared him a cashier's check...but they still wouldn't validate his parking garage ticket. So, he paid that in what
    cash he had besides the now very large cashier's check, and took it to
    a competing bank across town.

    But their policy was only on deposits & withdrawals? He withdrew. . .

    In this new town, my new doctor started our dfirst visit by asking, "Why'd you fire your last doctor?"(likely wanting to be sure I'm not one of those who bounce around doctor to doctor trying to find one to prescribe opiods); I explained, he said that made sense.

    He took a turn for the nurse.

    No nurses in my docs' office. . .

    His locum was his wife(also a GP) & one time I said to my pharmacist, "My doctor's off sick, so his wife wrote me this prescription for
    pain
    pills."

    Wow.

    Yeah, I like to be cheeky. . .

    She's been known to, noting my need for new interview clothing for a job search I was embarking on, hand me a few hundred dollars for it,
    &
    another time paid for the Heart Monitor rental I needed. . .

    That was nice of her.

    You bet! & so rare that the Haves share with the Have Nots. .

    Apparently there is bi-partisan agreement in Congress that medicinal marijuana should be allowed for the purpose of relieving arthritis pain...

    In other words, there is joint support for joint support for joint support...

    They are so disjointed that Mary Jane wouldn't know them.

    Does anyone but old people say MaryJane any more?

    I don't paertaje, even though 100% legal in Canada, so I'm not updated on the terms, I still use Ganja & Reefer. I think the kids use Chronic, which is ironically admitt8ing you have a problem, yet still going with it. . .

    ... Archaeologist: A person whose career lies in ruins.

    Breaking News: Archaeologists believe that they've uncovered a cache of
    pencils that belonged to William Shakespeare. A spokesperson for the dig said they're so badly chewed on the ends,
    we can't tell if they're 2B or not 2B.

    Archaeologists gathered to find the leg bones of ancient men
    It was a real shindig

    I really appreciated my archaeologist girlfriend's tent at the excavation site...
    I dug her dig's digs.

    Mess with an archaeologist;
    And you're history.

    You should never date an archaeologist,
    Because they're dating other people
    A2: Because they keep bringing up the past.

    Q: Why did the archaeologist have to get a new job?
    A: Because her career was in ruins!

    As an archaeologist, I could instantly tell the people of the ancient world were into sweet things...
    They used a mortar and PEZ-tle.

    The last one is probably not applicable today. Today, hacking
    can imply doing good things like solving a (life) problem in a

    The lamgiuage has chamged so much *sigh*

    Hacking was originally a posiotive concept -- meant a skilled user who could haxk hius way t hrough a problem. The term as the public used it (malicious sneak & sabateur) became phreak (that was the negative type of hacker in the jargon of the informed. (non l-users)

    Speaking of --users, have you ever read the Bastard Operator From Hell
    series?

    Well worth a read -- it only exists online, but several sites carry it all,
    in formatted linear reading form.

    I LOL still, every time I reread from the start!
