The Saturday Night Joke

LITTLE JOHNNY IS BACK

The teacher asked the class to use the word "fascinate" in a sentence

Molly put up her hand and said, My father went to my grandad's farm and we all saw his pet sheep. It was fascinating.
The teacher said, That was good, but I wanted you to use the word "fascinate", not fascinating.

Sally raised her hand. She said, My family went to see Rock City and I was fascinated.
The teacher said, Well that was good Sally, but I wanted you to use the word fascinate.

Little Johnny raised his hand, but the teacher hesitated because she had been burned by Little Johnny before. She finally decided there was no way he could damage the world "fascinate", so she called on him.
Johnny said, “My aunt Carolyn has a sweater with 10 buttons, but her tits are so big she can only fasten eight.”

The teacher sat down and cried.................

Thank you Hrothgar

Valu-Rite Tito's Vodka is not hand sanitizer.

Tito’s, the reasonably-priced Texas vodka brand with a lively Twitter presence, has sent 11 tweets over the past 24 hours clarifying that, no, its beverage does not meet the CDC’s recommended minimum alcohol content for hand sanitizer. Contrary to what various Twitter users apparently believe.

But why did people turn to Tito’s, which contains no more than the industry standard of 40 percent alcohol concentration? Which is priced slightly above the brown bag liquor, the natural choice for bulk elixirs? Which is over twice as expensive per liter (>$20) than Purell ($7.29 at a Manhattan Staples)?

Hey 'Ettes, William Shatner is single and has kept his horse reproduction equipment.

William Shatner and his ex-wife Elizabeth Martin have divvied up their assets and it looks like the award-winning actor is walking away with the former couple's supply of horse semen.

The "Star Trek" actor, 88, filed for divorce from Martin in December after 18 years of marriage. Court records show the exes reached a divorce settlement this week and their takeaways from the belongings they shared are unique, to say the least.


According to reports, Shatner and Martin split up their four horses, with the actor scoring Renaissance Man's Medici and Powder River Shirley, while Martin will get Belle Reve's So Photogenic and Pebbles.

Turning water into wine, I thought only Christ could do that.

Residents of a small village in Italy had the taps in their houses dispensing red wine instead of water due to a fault at a nearby winery.

Locals in the village of Settecani, in the Castelvetro are of Modena, said the taps in their kitchens and bathrooms were dispensing red liquid instead of water Wednesday, and many quickly identified it from smell as Lambrusco Grasparossa, a locally-produced wine.

If you want it your way be careful you don't deal with tonight's Genius Award Winner.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. (WGCL/CNN) - A fast food worker in Georgia was arrested after he allegedly pulled a gun and shot at some customers, injuring two of them.

Johnte Robinson, 24, is charged with aggravated assault following the Tuesday shooting at a Checkers location in DeKalb County, Georgia.

According to the mother of one of the victims, her son told her there was a mix-up between his order and that of another customer. There was an argument, and Robinson allegedly pulled a gun on the customers.

Robinson then reportedly fired a bullet from inside the restaurant, grazing the woman’s son and striking the other customer in the neck.

Officers at the scene confirmed one person was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A Checkers spokesperson says the franchisee is fully cooperating with the police. The restaurant is currently closed.

I am apologizing upfront on this. I'ms sorry I'm not very humanitarian this evening. I'm also sorry I'm not displaying my Christian faith. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Former hostage taker of US diplomats Hossein Sheikholeslam.

Former Iranian ambassador to Syria and a hostage-taker of U.S. diplomats, Hossein Sheikholeslam, died Thursday from a Covid19 infection, local news outlets report.

An advisor to the Islamic Republic Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, 68-year-old Sheikholeslam was one of the leaders of the so-called "Muslim Student Followers of Imam's Line," who took 52 U.S. diplomats hostage, on November 4, 1979, and released them after 444 days.

Sheikholeslam studied at the University of California at Berkeley before the Iranian revolution and later interrogated U.S. Embassy staff members during the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979.

Tested positive for the novel coronavirus two days ago, Sheikholeslam was taken to Masih Daneshvari hospital in Tehran, where all Iranian authorities infected with Covid-19 are treated.

I was having lunch with a friend of mine the other day, and we were talking about how we both sometimes worry about making a major faux pas while lecturing to students, something it would be hard to come back from. I specifically mentioned using the N-word; you don't consciously think about calling anyone that, but I have a fear that in my stream-of-consciousness talking, it would somehow slip out. Anyway, we agreed that in that context, there is a nonzero chance that Biden actually might say the N-word in one of these debates. I could see him doing that. What I can't yet see is exactly what the response would be.

Posted by: Dr. T at March 07, 2020 10:16 PM (2PXwn)

59 But littlie Johnny wasn't through. The teacher ask
the students to use the word "beautiful" In a sentence. Little Jonnie raised his hand waved it energetically but the teacher ignored him. Finally there were no more stories from the students so the teacher relented and called on little Johnny.
Little Johnny said that he sister cans into the dinner table and told her dad she was pregnant. And my father said beautiful just fucking beautiful

94 Had a shitty day. Went to the airport to pick up my truck and it had a flat. Key wouldn't fit the lock to release the spare so I had to have it towed to a tire shop. Of course, they didn't have my size tire in stock. So I ended up having to wait at the tire shop til 4:30 to get it fixed.

And yesterday, had to take my company truck to get a new windshield put in. On the way back home, a truck in the middle Lane, lost control of his uhaul trailer, it broke loose from his truck and crossed the road in front of me, T-boning the guard rail. Thankfully, everyone else behind him/us, was able to slow up enough to miss getting in a big ass wreck. Just a little pucker factor.

Hello Jewells,
Thought you were cruisin. I never was much good at keeping track.

For you and any others in the Mo-Ks-Ne and Iowa 4 corners area, 4/18 might provide an opportunity for an abbreviated meet.
Some kind of shindig in Weston.
True North had scheduled to play it but they broke up and a couple of the guys didn't want to make good on the commitment.
Gary asked Steve and I if we'd do him the "favor" of playing it.

Well duh.

100 The Smiths song 'I Know It's Over' topped a poll of tunes, which people turn to when they are miserable in 'The Songs That Saved Your Life' poll by BBC radio station 6 Music.

My problem is that I'm miserable most of the time, so it's hard for me to find a song or a piece of music that will pull me out of the slough of despond for a while. Sometimes it might be - and usually is - "Here Comes The Sun," although if a random silly song like Dave Dudley's "Cowboy Boots" pops up, that might do it.

But generally I try to go to Bach's Third Brandenburg Concerto. I think that, along with the first movement of Beethoven's Third, it is one of the most wonderful pieces of music ever written.

The DNC knows a big L is coming this November and Biden is the sacrificial victim. That way, their stable of young presidential 'talent' doesn't get tainted with losing to such a buffoon as Trump and can run again in 2024. The DNC also knows if they run Sanders, they lose more than just the Presidential election.

It's a cold, calculating and merciless move by the Dems to run Biden.

Was on I-85 south coming up to my exit. He was in the middle Lane and I was in the right lane. I had noticed his trailer getting squirrely with him, swaying back and forth, more violently with each swing. Pretty sure he didn't have much experience hauling a trailer. I backed off, slowed down a little, thinking he might slow up and regain control. Either something went wrong with his hitch, or else he forgot to lock down his hitch, plus it didn't look like he had the safety chains hooked up either.

So, as luck (or not) would have it, I was in Alexandria last week, and had a couple of hours to take the Metro up to the National Mall (not enough time, but that's what I had). I stopped in the "White House Gift Shop" which isn't in the White House, and they had a bunch of tacky stuff from China, lots of current Trump stuff, and then one sad little shelf with leftover crap from the previous occupant. Not selling. Not at all. 3-1/2 years on, and they are still trying to get people to buy stuff with Obozo's likeness. Made me smile a bit, as I purchased a nice Trump 2020 car magnet.

A teacher asks her class, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
Little Johnny says "I wanna be a billionaire, going to the most expensive clubs, take the best bitch with me, give her a Ferrari worth over a million bucks, an apartment in Hawaii, a mansion in Paris, a jet to travel through Europe, an Infinite Visa Card and to make love to her three times a day".
The teacher, shocked, and not knowing what to do with the bad behavior of the child, decides not to give importance to what he said and then continues the lesson.
"And you, Susie? " the teacher asks.
Susie says "I wanna be Johnny's bitch."

179 The DNC knows a big L is coming this November and Biden is the sacrificial victim. That way, their stable of young presidential 'talent' doesn't get tainted with losing to such a buffoon as Trump and can run again in 2024. The DNC also knows if they run Sanders, they lose more than just the Presidential election.

It's a cold, calculating and merciless move by the Dems to run Biden.

Posted by: All Hail Eris, She-Wolf of the 'Ettes 'Ettes at March 07, 2020 10:03 PM (Dc2NZ)


there is a story about a widow in Germany who passed on, and the relatives hired some workers to clean out her house.
In the basement they found a full sized cask of rum in the basement, which they decided to sample on while working.

In the end, when the decided to move it (last thing) one thing led to another and they found out that:

The widow's husband had died while they were on vacation in Jamaica, years before.
The import tax and importation paperwork on a barrel of rum was far less than the fee for returning a corpse in a casket.
And the widow should have told someone, sometime, before passing on herself so a work crew wouldn't have to find this out on their own.

The first planeload of folks coming back from Wuhan came through Anchorage, and for some reason, they offloaded everyone at the North Terminal to check them before sending them on to quarantine in CA.

I have had a Jeep Cherokee, Ford Escape and now Jeep Patriot and every Underhood thankfully had the battery up front for easy access. And well positioned so as not to need to remove anything else for battery changes.

Autozone here in SE Michigan does replacement for free, with exceptions. I think your situation would unfortunately fall under their exception. They specifically state on their site the instance of the battery in the wheel well.

I will take Anna Puma's advice and go get "Clueless" which is another film I hadn't seen, because I don't want to see the newest version of "Emma". I enjoyed the one with Gwennie Paltrow and for some reason the looks of the actress in the new one just completely put me off-which is really shallow-but there you go.

198 ..Yep, I know what goes into towing a trailer, the list gets real short after that. And prolly all horde members.

Posted by: Some rat in the swamp at March 07, 2020 10:33 PM (+OZg+)




Tomorrow morning will see me at the wheel of a 14 passenger Ford Transit van, medium-height roof, and pulling an enclosed 4x10 V-nose cargo trailer, for luggage.

Daily check on that thing is to keep all six tire pressures exactly on the numbers, and inspect the chains to see of some other driver let them drag on the ground, weakening them.

'Bout a year ago, I removed the chains that the trailer manufacturer had installed, and put new stainless chains on at double the link-thickness.

Those chains *will* hold the trailer in the event of a breakaway.

Now, as to loading the luggage in the trailer, the trick is to load most of the weight forward of the trailer axle, and the smaller assorted bags arranged on their sides, in a jigsaw puzzle pattern, filling the space all the way to the back doors.

Works similar to a "Load Binder" in commercial trucks, serving to prevent the load from shifting when under way.

One thing surrounding traffic is unaware of though. This Transit is powered by the 3.5 liter, twin-turbo Eco-Boost engine. Something around 375 hp and 420 ft.lbs. of torque.

I can effect *any* merge into traffic that I choose to, when I choose to.

Even if fully laden with passengers and luggage.

That van is a rocket-ship. And I do use cruise-control often, (when not in traffic, duh!), so as to keep my foot out of the "you get a ticket today" zone of the speedometer.

I can take or leave Mozart; sometimes he just gets to be a little too twee, IMO, although the Requiem is the service by which all others must be judged.

I heard the PETA clowns showed up again today, and were pretty much crowded out of the starting chute by a lot of fur-wearing folk who came to have a good time.

258 Here's another shallow comment. The actor Jeremey Northram) who played Mr Knighleyin the Gwennie Paltrow version is better looking, IMO than the one playing him in the new version (Johnny Flynn).

Jane Austen had some ghastly characters who were clergymen. Well, the one in Emma is not as bad as the guy in Pride and Prejudice. But I guess movie types would never do Mansfield Park because the character of Fanny is too pallid (I actually like the novel a lot) and that clergyman (well, He's going to be one; he isn't one yet) is quite nice.

I've used 'em aplenty when making cross-country motorcycle rides. After a 700 mile day, all I asked was bed, clean sheets n' pillowcase and a serviceable bathroom. While in no way luxurious, they always met the minimum standard.

The hotel I learned to avoid was Red Roof Inns.

One's odds of checking into a sub-par room, I found, were damn near to "certain".

Not just a lack of cleanliness, but shopworn, threadbare, poorly maintained and a coin-toss as to whether the faucets would work or you'd even *dare* step into that blighted space they called a "shower."

Generally got good rooms at Super8, also.

On the other end of things, I used to be a Black Card level member of Marrott's Rewards Program.

Most over-rated high-end hotel chain in the business. Great conference rooms, but room size wasn't any better than an average Super8, and the swill that Marriott serves as "coffee", clearly isn't. It's some cruel Mormon trick against us who partake of the sinful brew.

Overall though, I'm just not all that inclined to overspend on a simple night's lodging. Unless it's some special occasion. *ices champagne, scatters rose petals across turned-down bedspread, ques up the Marvin Gaye music, etc.*

Marriott's "Courtyard Suites", simply blows the doors off of every "standard" Marriott Hotel, save for the prestige "J.W.Marriott" properties.

And those are, of course, about $250 per night (in the janitor's broom closet), and up.

Speaking of appliances, washing machines and dishwashers had to use less water and new reguations on soaps made getting anything clean impossible. And the cost of the new formula soaps went up! And he wanted the cost of a gallon of gas to "necessary" go up to $8.00. Thank goodness that didn't work out for him. And Biden wants to run on their recored?

I knew about that part. It' was just someone above suggested that she was an alcoholic. I think it's more likely ( but What do I know about it? Nothing) that she wasn't looking, or her view was blocked and that was why she pulled out. I'd hate to think that she was driving drunk with three kids-and no, I wouldn't want it said if it weren't true and yes, I think Joe is awful.

Sure, sure. Like rules ever stopped the Dems before.

So Slow Joe gets the nod but dies on the campaign trail the weekend before the election. You don't think the Dems will get the registration deadline changed while putting a hold on the election just because their candidate up and died? If they went to the courts and the courts denied them, then they could holler even louder that Trump is not legitimate.

The New Jersey Senate race in 2002 should be your guide. Torricelli (D) was running on the ballot but withdrew due to ethics charges. But that withdrawal came after the deadline. The NJ Dems went to court to be able to change their candidate AFTER the deadline to be on the ballot. Lautenberg came out of retirement to win again.

If he becomes incapacitated at any moment before the Electoral College casts its votes, the party can replace him with anyone they want (not necessarily whoever he picks for VP).

Of course, the electors could then decide to vote for someone else entirely. While some states have laws requiring electors to vote in accordance with the popular ballot, no elector has ever been prosecuted for failure to do so.

Between the EC vote and Congress certifying the EC vote is constitutional limbo. The Supremes likely would claim the right to decide, but the House might also claim that right. The Constitution is silent on this. It would get ugly. Really ugly.

After certification, the 25th Amendment takes over.

The man commutes daily into Manhattan, sources said. In a Tuesday
press conference, Cuomo said he wasn't sure which method of
transportation the man took to work.
One of the most common
methods of transit from New Rochelle to Manhattan is the Metro-North
Railroad, which passes through Grand Central Terminal.

I hear AOC is pushing mandatory CO2 detectors in all buildings. Because we have to save the friggin' planet. Or something.

Speaking of saving the friggin' planet, NY's plastic bag ban, scheduled to go into effect 3/1 (and which was never an election issue nor on any statewide ballot), has been put on hold thanks to retailers suing. I can bet you that lawmakers have never walked home from a grocery store. Ever. Much less walked home in the rain carrying a paper bag. Also, in an irony of ironies, plastic bags were pushed because they wanted to save the trees (not use paper bags). So now they want to kill the trees because paper bags will only be given, unless you want to pay a nickel a plastic bag (2 or 3 cents for the state and the remainder for the City).

Apparently, no one can save the planet without making money on the deal.

Okay, Horde, here's your ONT work for the night.

How do WE best leverage this "crisis" and manufactured panic for the BENEFIT of conservatism?

I'll ask the COBs to allow this to be as near to a "No Boundaries" conversation as is possible, within the "don't cause Ace to lose sponsors" parameters.

How do we end up with a MORE conservative, MORE Constitutional world as a result of having dealt with, and beaten back, this particular plague?

I have to awaken in but four hours. (FUCK dst)

I'm hoping to read some genius level response tomorrow afternoon.

Barring that, I'll settle for genius level snark.

It is after all, the way of our people.

The first observation I have is that there are reports that hard liquor drinkers have some immunity to this particular strain of virus.
So, I'd say start some serious drinking... then I'm sure some solutions will arise as things progress.

One of the chapters in "The FBI Story" is about an old, poor guy in NYC who somehow or another had a printing press in his basement and a set of $1 plates. He'd run off $4-5 if his finances got really tight, maybe every few months. Smeared, fuzzy, with "Washington" misspelled. They finally tracked him down after a decade or so.

Second thought...
In N. Korea, where records are being meticulously kept, the death rate is about .4%. that's about 4X the normal flu mortality.
Sars was worse. Ebola is worse. Hell, AIDS is worse.

Third thought-
CDC is estimating up to 52,000 flu deaths in the US of A last year.
With an estimated .1% death rate, that means 14% of Americans got the flu in the last twelve months (don't make me do maths, they're hard).
Like most numbers with our government, these are entirely made up numbers. Flu doesn't kill anyone. Complications from the flu kills people. Usually anti-biotic resistant pneumonia.

All these numbers don't mean squat.
People, I mean LOTS of people die every year from flu.
Even in these United States. Not on a single death certificate is it ever spelled "flu".
So I don't buy it.
I believe (cue heavy music here) that there is an ongoing effort, by people or people, known and unknown (go ahead and put the tinfoil hat on) to thwart the will of the common man.
(Cue the patriotic music) And I believe there is one man who stands against those efforts! One man who can stop the evil cabal! One man!
(Cue Tchaikovski here) Donald J. Fucking Trump!
The efforts to stop him started before he was even elected. They continue today.
He scoffs at Pussygate. Scoffs at Russiagate. Sneers at Impeachgate.
And now, the cabal tries Econo-gate!
They will destroy the world's economy before they will allow him to succeed! (Cue Star Wars Imperial Navy Suite).

In answer.
I think the DJ Trumpenator is already ahead of you and us.
He's already replaced the EPA's method of determination for "harm", in that it now must be actually discussed in the open, with real science.
I expect an unabashed hammering of AGW after the next election, with diminished funding, and corollary wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I believe the electioneering itself will be an education for the obviously under-educated (mal-educated) yewts that actually have no knowledge of what communism hath wrought over the last 100 years.

Serious question Miklos.
There's a bar on Bourbon Street. Towards the west end of trouble.
Used to be (maybe still is) a bar that the band owns. Black guy is the lead singer. Not great, even for Nawlins, but the lead guitar player can hit it like Stevie Ray, all the while chummin good looking girls in the crowd.
Ring a bell?

The band owns the bar. Hmm

Yeah. Been many years. And they were there for several trips so they HAVE to be still there, right?

The killer guitar player told me he liked being able to sleep at home every night. Same story you hear from performers in Branson. Touring ain't worth the hassle.
This guy was bald 12 years ago. Probably ain't performing.

Thought so, but then...

Weston Mo on April 18 might be a thing.
Some kind of shindig going on.
True North had been booked to play it, so it must be some kind of a thing, but they broke up.
Trio is stepping in to do it.
Don't know any more details than that yet.
Hoping it's like we did back in the 90's. Flatbed trailer on main street for a stage.
Fun town.

No, seriously, the guy at Jackson Square ha a collection of bottles and glasses. He moistens his fingers and can make the glass sing like an orchestra and choir combined.

Better than my Tulane friend, who could belch the National Anthem.

Staying at the Monteleone... which is Quarter Crass, but close to our action.

It is a cool little town.
We'll be hooking a couple of wineries there this year I think.
Owners had stopped in when we played the coffee roastery 2-3 mo ago and both said they wanted us.

We're just terrible at getting back to new places. Those we already play usually book us up early in year.

Monteleone is good

Many renovations

They closed the old bar, though

There are yootoobs from the former bartender about Proper Drinks
