The Saturday Night Joke

Very heartwarming....read to the end. It's worth the read.

Every morning, the CEO of a large bank in Manhattan walks to the corner where a shoe shine is always located.

He sits on the couch, examines the Wall Street Journal, and the shoe shine gives his shoes a shiny, excellent look.

One morning the shoeshine asks the Executive Director:

"What do you think about the situation in the stock market?"


The Director asks in turn arrogantly:

"Why are you so interested in that - that topic?"

"I have a million dollars in your bank," the shoeshine says, "and I'm considering investing some of the money in the capital market."


"What your name? –"Asks the Director.

"John Smith."

The Director arrives at the bank and asks the Manager of the Customer Department:


"Do we have a client named John Smith?"

"Certainly –"answers the Customer Service Manager–, "he is a highly esteemed customer. He has a million dollars in his account."

The Director comes out, approaches the shoeshine, and says:

"Mr. Smith, I ask you this coming Monday to be the guest of honor at our board meeting and tell us the story of your life. I am sure we will have something to learn from you."

At the board meeting, the Executive Director introduces him to the board members:

"We all know Mr. Smith, who makes our shoes shine in the corner; But Mr. Smith is also our esteemed customer with a million dollars in his account. I invited him to tell us the story of his life. I am sure we can learn from him."

Mr. Smith began his story:

"I came to this country fifty years ago as a young immigrant from Europe with an unpronounceable name. I got off the ship without a penny. The first thing I did was change my name to Smith. I was hungry and exhausted. I started wandering around looking for a job but to no avail. Suddenly I found a coin on the sidewalk. I bought an apple. I had two options: eat the apple and quench my hunger or start a business. I sold the apple for two dollars and bought two apples with the money. I also sold them and continued in business. When I started accumulating dollars, I was able to buy a set of used brushes and shoe polish and started polishing shoes. I didn't spend a penny on entertainment or clothing, I just bought bread and some cheese to survive. I saved penny by penny and after a while, I bought a new set of shoe brushes and ointments in different shades and expanded my clientele. I lived like a monk and saved penny by penny. After a while I was able to buy an armchair so that my clients could sit comfortably while cleaning their shoes, and that brought me more clients. I did not spend a penny on the joys of life. I kept saving every penny. A few years ago, when the previous shoe shine on the corner decided to retire, I had already saved enough money to buy his shoeshine location at this great place.

Finally, three months ago, my sister, who was a whore in Chicago, passed away and left me a million dollars."

OK Morons, is this someone who needs to be kicked out of a restaurant? A two word answer would suffice, "Hell No!"

An Australian restaurant has apologised to an Italian backpacker after refusing to serve her and her boyfriend because she was dressed ‘inappropriately’. Martina Corradi posted that she was ‘embarrassed and offended’ when a waitress told her she was not dressed ‘acceptably’ and then called the manager to kick her out ‘in front of everyone’ on Christmas Eve. Today North Bondi Fish General Manager Gemma Swanson told Daily Mail Australia the restaurant had apologised to Ms Corradi and offered her a free meal. She said: ‘We have reviewed the incident and acknowledge that it was an error of judgment to ask Martina and her partner to leave the restaurant.

Iron Crotch. No we aren't talking about Michigan's governor Karen Whitmer.

Kung Fu Masters in China Who Practice the Painful Looking Dying Tradition Known as ‘Iron Crotch’

Kung Fu masters in the Chinese province of Henan deliberately stand in front of a swinging log that’s capped with steel in order to take a blow to the crotch while using Qigong breathing practices to allay any pain. This incredibly painful-looking practice is colloquially known as “Iron Crotch”, an ancient tradition that requires years and years of training in order to withstand both the physical and the mental anguish of such a feat.

The move involves a log, capped with a steel plate, measuring 2 metres (6ft 7in) in length and weighing 40kg (88lbs) that is swung through the air before it is smashed into the crotch area of the practitioner. …Wang Liutai, a 65-year-old kung fu master who has been practising “iron crotch” for around half a century, said the move does not hurt and has no effect on fertility if done with the right methods and sufficient practise.

When a Bottle of Costco Bourbon Is More Than Just a Bottle of Costco Bourbon - Sometimes, circumstances make you take another sip

It’s not like Mark and I were close friends.

We’d see each other in the dirt parking lot at the town field after the boys’ soccer practice, talking as our sons half-jogged over, laughing like sixth graders do, before we got in our cars. When my younger son got sick—real sick—my wife and I would sometimes drop our older boy at Mark and Mary’s house in the middle of the night before rushing to the hospital. Mark would quietly wish us luck and smile as he put his hand on my son’s shoulder, taking him in. Mark was tall and strong and calm, and he always smiled.

Once, after another sleepover, our older son came home and reported that Mark had taken them on a run through the woods.

A run? Through the woods?

Our son hated running. Didn’t like hiking. But he said he loved this day, flying through the trees with his buddy and his buddy’s dad.

Then Mark got sick. Real sick, real fast. Now it was we who were taking their boy in, sometimes for nights at a time.

Mark died last year of multiple myeloma. A month before his 50th birthday.

Sorry Missy, I've been washing my hair before you were an accidental birth.

Believe it or not, but how to wash your hair has actually become a popular talking point.


A hairdresser on TikTok has gone viral after uploading a video showing how people should be washing their hair properly.

While you might think that you're doing it correctly, this video contains lots of handy tips to make sure you are.

According to TikTok user @amy.does.some.hair, there's a proper technique to ensure your locks are squeaky clean.

Her video has racked up 284,000 views and hundreds of comments since being shared on TikTok.

We really have become a world full of easily entertained imbeciles.

The government which wants you to social distance, wear masks and get inoculated against the Chinese Kung Flu promotes encephalitis and salmonella.

Desperate Marietta residents have taken to banging on pots and pans to shoo the birds away, while others have even lit fireworks to scare them off. But these are only temporary solutions.

According to Lancaster Online, black vultures are a federally protected species and can’t be trapped or killed without a permit. Doing so could yield a fine of up to $15,000 and up to six months in prison.

Makeshift solutions are thus the law of the land for Marietta residents right now. Some have put up taxidermied vulture effigies in a surprisingly effective move that scares the living ones away. Even this, however, requires legal permission.

The old saying is if life gives you lemons make lemonade. In snow country, "If life is going to give you snow, play in it until the fucking nannies outlaw everything fun."

As snow piles up in yards and parks across the United States this winter, many children will be hitting their neighborhood hills to sled on their days away from school. Common injuries caused by the time-honored winter activity, however, have led some cities in the Midwest to place a ban on sledding.

According to a study from The Center for Injury Research and Policy (CIRP) at Nationwide Children's Hospital, more than 20,000 Americans younger than age 19 receive treatment for sledding-related injuries each year.

Some cities in Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and Indiana have banned sledding on steep hills in recent years. Other municipalities have posted warning signs cautioning people to sled at their own risk

Well at least he doesn't have any money to be seized by The Man. Genius Award Winner.

A Pennsylvania man charged with narcotics distribution claimed to police that he did not sell methamphetamine, but instead gave it away for free to those who came to his storage unit and asked for the drug, according to a criminal complaint.

Mark Hiles, 56, was arrested Saturday for allegedly selling drugs from a storage unit several blocks from his home in Altoona. Hiles, free on $50,000 bond, faces a pair of felony drug charges and three misdemeanor counts.

According to police, Hiles and Tyler Bartley, 25, were collared after investigators found them inside Hiles’s storage unit, which "appeared to being used as a residence." During questioning, Bartley reportedly admitted that he worked as a “middle man” setting up drug transactions between Hiles and street buyers.

Bartley told cops that he would “exchange money for drugs” at Hiles’s storage unit, adding that “a large amount of methamphetamine was to be in the storage unit.”

16 Yeah, "Santa's flesh" is not on my DMC color card.

My primary tip for washing hair is to wash your *brushes*. The crud that accumulates on them over time is made up of product, lint, and sebum. So when you brush your clean hair with a dirty brush, you're just brushing sebum right back into it. Now that I wash my brushes at least every other week, I can go 3-4 days between hair washes without getting greasy (and I have an oily scalp).

26 Welp my prediction on the bomber being an ATT employee is busted. Probably. Presuming that this Warner guy is the bomber.

BUT - again, if he is the bomber - the spectacular suicide and that he is the legal owner of the RV - are holding true so far.

Composition of the bomb will likely be publicized in the next couple of days. I still think ANFO. I had previously said maybe 100lbs, I may up that seeing more of the damage photos. Let's call it 200 lbs. But not much more than that (possible - there was more than 200lbs ANFO, but only part of it exploded..)

36 I am saying maybe partial explosion because of the amount of soot - not sure what else might have burnt at the scene. but I think that is a possibility.

There is a video that shows something exploding from the RV before the big explosion - I expect that is a primary charge to set off the ANFO.

Hah! I'm one of eight kids. My youngest brother stalled a lawn mower with his foot. Oldest sister smashed me in the head with a milk bottle. Eight stitches. And on and on and on almost without end.

Mom was a nurse - unless you had spurting arterial bleeding or a bone sticking out of your skin, you got an aspirin and were told to take it easy for awhile.

Mom said get out of bed I don't care if it hurts, it ain't broken....go to school.

Fast forward 30 years. Felt outta kilter. Went to chiropractor. Took back X-ray.

She used to tell me of how when they were maybe 8 years old she let go of her brother and let him slide off an icy third story roof in order to save her ceramic doll from falling off a chair. Their mom was in the room below and he said 'hi mom' as he dropped past the window she was sitting by.....this was in the 1920's in upstate NY...

Just sick of the random nature of things getting bounced and the ever changing requirements to get something posted, despite the fact that I'm hitting no limits and breaking no rules. Ace is good, cobs are good, software is f*cked.

159 I got a woodburning set when I was a kid. My mom never let me use it though because she thought I'd burn the house down. She wasn't unreasonable in this. I was more into seeing what I can do with things than making crafts. A wise lady.

Mr. Sonny had a bad evening. He mistakenly ended up in a pen with Dan, who forcefully let him know about the dining arrangements. I got him out and put him in a crate while I moved Val back where he belonged.

Unfortunately for Sonny, little Musya, our tiny rescue girl, was eating her dinner in the adjacent crate. She read him the riot act about his looking at her bowl of meat, even though she was finished. So Sonny got yelled at by just about everyone.

179 Okay, so out of those 7 Dangerous Toys, I had only one, the Creepy Crawler maker. I will admit, that sucker got pret-ty damned hot. I also played with someone else's Lawn Darts. I didn't have a nuclear chemistry set though I did have a biology set, with jars of small dead critters. At around age 4, I was given a toy pistol that fired a metal bullet. Took aim from the dinner table at the Christmas tree 15' away and hit my target. I was proud of my shot until I was punished: It was my Mom's favorite ornament.

It was a mess. It was woke-ish. Stupid plot. I feel sorry for the actors who had to work with it. Not that any of the superhero movies have much of a plot, but there is a formula I suppose, and if done creatively and with some humor it is tolerable. I an not familiar with many dc comics (?) based films, but for the most part - villain + plot to destroy world + superhero saves the day works . They managed to fail at something that simple.

Had a Zoom teleconference this afternoon with gSon in an open adoption, his adopted mother, his sister (also adopted), our daughter and her significant other, and the two of us. Ordinarily we get together in person on Boxing Day, but no one traveled out this way this year.

For the most part the conversation was pleasant and fun, but once our daughter came aboard, strident and ignorant mutterings about politics elbowed their way into the conversational flow and were generally unpleasant, owing to the insufferable smugness of those caught in the thrall of the Dims and Scientism.

261 BTW, I saw a video of Nashville and I swear there was some sort of missile or rocket plume coming FROM the blast site, just before it blew up. All I can think is that it had a camera on board to relay back imagery for damage assessment.

274 The thing about the "dangerous" toys is that some regular old playground equipment was pretty dangerous. I think my gradeschool was trying to kill all of us.

One play set was just a large square concrete pad with concrete pillars of varying height ranging from four feet to eight feet. So you hop from column to column too get higher until you fall to the concrete, break your neck, and die. I remember the concrete pad was kind of sloped towards a drain who's purpose must of been to make cleaning off the days collected bones, blood, and assorted viscera easier.

410 We had a two hour PE class in the 11th & 12th grade, called "Fun in the Sun". It was optional, but I signed up for it.

Started at 0700. Mix of everything like running bleachers, cross country, weight room, endurance swimming, 20 mile bicycle ride out on the public streets, and more.

Unrelenting pace, but it served me well. I don't think they could offer such a course, these days?

411 Back before I would have appreciated it there was a liquor/gun store in a San Diego suburb (Hiram's). I think liquor store is still there, and the gun store is now quite small, around the side and the back, separate entrance. Used to be just divided up in the middle, one big room.

if you've seen the Mythbusters show a hot water tank explode, those thing shoot up really high. Someone here mentioned a propane tank might propel itself like that. I'm not sure there was a "multi-stage" blast ... there maybe was an initial blast, then the smoke and debris cloud.


Could be there were gas cans inside ... buildings helped confine the blast, so it went up and out, that is maybe why cars burned that were not right next to it. Maybe we get some real forensics over time.

used boiling water to establish his 100 mark. Fahrenheit marked the tube
first then made the same measurements.....

The FBI will have their sniper team wipe out the suspect and their "compound" (or what other people call a neighborhood) so no trial needed.

642 Strictly personal, of course, but by the time I started college in '71 my music tastes were shifting to traditional folk music, sea chanties, small combo jazz, and classical (preferably Bach and other Baroque composers). I didn't care for all the heavy metal, hair bands, grunge, and other screaming style groups. Couldn't hear the talent over the volume. Hip Hop and Rap can be clever and creative but has no appeal for me. But an album by Manhattan Transfer, Vince Guaraldi, or the Brandenberg Concertos and string quartets heals my soul.

Neighbor was a chemistry major, and taught me how to make gunpowder.

Exercised, cleaned up and shaved, slopped the feline hogs, and cooked up a nice traditional American breakfast. No, not the kind with a beer for dessert. Scrambled eggs in a smooth copper pan, and sausage patties in the small oiled cast-iron pan I received good advice yesterday about using. Yes, I cleaned the pan after with salt and a paper towel, and have driven off the last of the moisture by heating it on medium.

So very unsafe!

Oh, we'd also move the two outside seats out of the way (sling 'em over the side bar), and then straddle the seat and swing from end to end.

This happens in countries that grow rich. (altho we're one of the only for this to happen in recent history)

Be glad we haven't resorted to death games and legalized murder. (well we're almost there but not yet)

And it's gotten especially noticeable because there are so many who are not employed. And yet we see the country itself is managing.

This will impact hiring (and firing) decisions for years to come.
