The Saturday Night Jokes

A priest, a minister and a rabbi are in a boat out on the lake, fishing.

PRIEST: “Doggone it, I left my sunglasses on the dock.”

The priest steps overboard, walks across the water to the dock, fetches his sunglasses, walks back across the water, boards the boat.

MINISTER: “Wouldn’t you know it, I left my lunchbox on the dock.”

The minister steps overboard, walks across the water to the dock, fetches his lunchbox, walks back across the water, boards the boat.”

Mystified, but not to be outdone, the rabbi pipes up:

RABBI: “Oy-vey, I left my sunscreen on the dock.

The rabbi steps overboard, takes one step and plunges up to his neck in the lake.

The priest elbows the minister:

PRIEST: “Do you think we should have told him where the stepping stones are?”

AND

A guy asked a girl in a university library:
“Do you mind if I sit beside you?”

The girl replied with a loud voice:
“I DON’T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!”

All the students in the library started staring at the guy; he was truly embarrassed. After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the guy’s table and said:
“I study psychology, and I know what a man is thinking. I guess you felt embarrassed, right?”

The guy then responded with a loud voice:
“$500 FOR ONE NIGHT!? THAT’S TOO MUCH!”

All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock. The guy
whispered in her ear:
“I study law, and I know how to screw people”

I'm not a golfer. I attempted the game several times when I was a youngster. I just never got into it. However, I know quite a few folks who love the game. As they get older modern advancements will allow them to keep at the game.

Roy H. Taylor was an aerospace engineer at Lockheed Missile and Space before he dreamed up the PowerGolf club, one of the most interesting things you’ll ever see on a golf course.

Frustrated with his results on the golf course, Taylor decided to apply rocket science to his game. Working through prototypes, patents and perspiration, Taylor invented the extraordinary PowerGolf club, which allows users to consistently hit perfect shots from 50 yards away, all the way up to 225 yards.

The rocket fuel inside the PowerGolf club is actually gun powder, and the long barrel acts as a silencer to keep the decibels down to a level similar to that of a metal head driver. Users can even use the club to hit high shots, low shots, fades and draws, depending on how they address it at impact.

“There’s a lot of skill still left in the game,,” explains Steve Fluke, Chief Marketing Officer of PowerGolf. "You have to allow for wind and roll and setting the yardage. So it’s PowerGolf but it’s not automatic golf.

We all complain there isn't much on television worth watching. Good news, Mike Rowe's Dirty Jobs is coming back.

Discovery chose today, March 18, Mike Rowe’s birthday to announce the return of his hit series Dirty Jobs — and I can’t wait!

The time couldn’t be more perfect to celebrate those whose unglamorous jobs keep civilization humming. A few weeks ago, we talked about his Discovery+ show, Six Degrees With Mike Rowe, and Rowe observed:

I hadn’t thought about it in those terms, but Dirty Jobs was the celebration of that which was out of sight out of mind, but nevertheless, essential.

Apple's marketing doesn't impress Brazil. LOLGF.

The consumer protection agency in Brazil’s São Paulo state has fined Apple $2 million for failing to include chargers within iPhone 12 boxes, according to 9to5 Mac. Procon-SP says Apple engaged in “misleading advertising, selling a device without the charger and unfair terms.”

Apple announced in October that the iPhone 12 and would not come with chargers or earbuds in their boxes, citing environmental concerns. By only including a USB-C to Lightning cable with iPhone 12 and other new models, Apple said it would be able to reduce the raw materials for each iPhone it sells, in addition to reducing the size of the phones’ boxes. Critics suggested the change had more to do with allowing Apple to reduce shipping costs, and environmental experts said the impact on the environment would likely be minimal.

The ONT Musical Interlude

There are showoffs and then there are Genius Award Winners.

Vehicular destruction is a popular YouTube trend. YouTubers destroy perfectly good vehicles to rake in millions of views and plenty of cash. One infamous YouTuber is facing charges of 18 criminal counts after allegedly destroying the environment while filming his videos.

Street Speed 717 is a popular carnage channel similar to that of WhistlinDiesel. The channel is run by Michael Hyssong and you’ll find plenty of street racing, questionable car modifications and a surprising amount of vehicular destruction on his account. These shenanigans popped up on the radar of Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and it brought 18 criminal charges against Hyssong for the actions depicted in his videos:

Usually Saturday night there isn't a Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day. Tonight is different.

ARLINGTON, Texas — An armed child-rape suspect who left Arkansas, where he was wanted on 11 felony counts, was killed in Arlington, Texas, this week after pointing a gun at police during a traffic stop, according to reports


That story too heavy for you on a Saturday night. I can't make guarantees, but I'm convinced this will put a smile on your face. (Trust me......)

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by Predicaments.

Moon was great. My oldest son and I watched "Mama" this morning. It has a "meh" ending but whatever. It gave me an epiphany, though. I see a lot of great horror and suspense film these days, ie The Forest, Woman in Black. But it seems like noone can put a good ending on anything anymore. Anybody else notice that?

Also, I dont recomend sobriety in these dark days....

26 The folk around here eat raccoon by choice! I mean, I've tasted it, and possum, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat it. After I talked about how many raccoons I have trapped on my property, one of the workers that I hired left me his phone number and and a promise to buy any that I catch.

31 I thought the spouse and I were going to get to watch 'Dark Shadows' episodes tonight but no, teeenage daughter decided, DECIDED we were watching K-Pop videos with her while eating corned beef and cabbage.

Oh well, at least something of a family evening together. Spouse did everything together in the Instant Pot, and while she's usually got a good handle on that appliance and the beef and carrots came out fine, the potatoes were just okay and the cabbage was quite inedible - imagine cabbage-flavored oatmeal.

I think she fed most of it to the dogs. Should be an interesting collection of odors tonight in the bedroom.

Disagree, they like the money.
Look at their computer systems, there isn't any magic but they cost a *bundle* more than any comparable system.
The same for their phones and peripherals.

Yeah, one of my sisters was basically a Pez dispenser. And hers were typically of the 10 lb variety. It's a 45 minute drive from her house in the boonies to a small hospital in Soldotna, so if she felt a bit off she would go into town for dinner, just in case.

So the movie, Avatar, was brought up in the...oh, which thread was it? Doesn't matter.

So supposedly James Cameron had been simultaneously making umpteen Avatar sequels at once, right?

Now, after enormous cost that probably was responsible for Fox's sale to Disney and after a Scamdemic and resulting lockdown that's crippled the movie theater business I'm wondering 1. Will we ever see these sequels no one seems to care for and if we do 2. What is the likelihood that they they fail so massively that Disney puts itself up for sale?

175 Totes off the record, and we shall never speak of this again but:

I and my family wish to thank whoever recommended the game "Blokus" the other night. I thought what the heck and bought it for laughs to take to my 29th birthday party tonight. The six and nine year old grand-kids cleaned our respective clocks, but a grand time was had by all. This is a great family game, and now highly recommended by me after a live multi-generational proof test!

207 I love that golf video. If it helps people with disabilities continue to play the game, it is good thing. Now if I could get people to stop saying "golfing" but say "play golf" I would be a happy man. BTW, the chance of that is next to zero. Ok, it is actually zero. A few decades ago no one said "let's go golfing", "let's golf", or "we golfed", but time moves on.

there are some great videos on disabled golfers online, such as this one.
https://tinyurl.com/fcesys7c Funny that the newscaster here is named Justin Rose. It is not exactly a common name.

Some good stuff from about disabled veteran golfers online too. Many of these guys are tremendous athletes.

https://flic.kr/s/aHsmHd9pzF

I ended up with a suppressor so I built it as 300ac instead.

It's this barrel: https://bit.ly/3s7yrqt

Never shot and I am not planning on using it for at least a year so I could let you have it for what I have in it plus postage.

Yikes. Or, if I was from Australia, Crikey. I'll just say this --

You came to the ONT with a tale; obviously you were seeking feedback. You got a lot. Some of it was unappetizing. Maybe a lot of it was. I'm not a judge.

But as to accusations, they are not totes fiction. People HAVE faked cancer. Children HAVE accused adults of things that didn't happen.

So I wouldn't characterize these things as accusations. They are possibilities. Awareness factors. Maybe improbabilities, maybe not.

As a trivia expert as you are, none of those things are something you have never heard about. *shrugs* Be mad, I guess. The outrage outlet is always open.

Oh FFS. The first thing they said was "social distancing" and then claimed we were all in this together. No, idiot, distance means apart. We are in this quite apart from one another, which was the plan all along.

People who believe this crap have the brains of a squid.

And then you have Walgreen's sending out emails about FAQ's like: do I have to still wear a mask after getting the vaccine..

Short answer: why yes, yes you do. CAUSE WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER RIGHT?!

And the sheeple will blindly follow like those clowns at the tennis club who resigned because the owner said no masks are required. They didn't say you couldn't wear one right.. so stupid.

273 GnuBreed - Obviously, they are things that happen. But it's like being told your significant other is a serial killer. Serial killers exist - I don't think it's very probable that she is one.

I was venting, and got advice because, well, venting invites advice. Most of it was sensible. Some was a tad nutty. People who have a lot more life experience than me are understandably jaded and world weary. Lord knows I'm usually a pretty bitter, pessimistic, gloomy fuck. I'm trying to for once be a tad more optimistic, but also just live more in the moment. One day at a time. I'll have the rest of my life to have regrets, to overthink my actions, and to wish I did things differently.

The terlets here in the new house are low flow. But that can be easily overridden by the design. It's a 3.5 gal. tank with one of the those weighted flapper things. It will drop and shut off when the 1.5 gal or whatever is drawn down.

All you have to do, however, is just hold the handle down and you can empty the whole tank in one flush.

With a liquid load, I just use the low flow. With the others, I use the full tank.

Never turn down the chance for a threesome.

Ah. Well, best of luck to her (and you.) I don't know her at all, so I won't pass judgment.

I will say my uncle was once married to a woman who did fake having cancer. He'd drive her to chemo once a week or whatever, but she never wanted him in the room with her. And she was one of the lucky ones who never lost her hair. Eventually, he got suspicious, and followed her and she was walking out the back door of the hospital and going and getting lunch. Never had cancer. So it's not impossible, I suppose. But I think it takes a rare breed to lie about something like that, so I'd err on the side of believing her. Personally.

Are you my neighbor? If I don't tell the younger one to go potty, she thinks it's just fun and games times and then she is desperate 15 minutes after I bring her back in. I did, however, take her up hillside for a romp in the deep snow today as a special treat, rather than just the usual three miles at the doggie park in town. So, there's that. But I will still call her Ruby-boo and other obnoxious kiddie names, because she IS my Ruby-boo.

Last time I had a threesome was over a year ago, and it did not go like one who watches pornos would think it would. It was extremely awkward, and reaffirmed my belief that threesomes are not all they're cracked up to be.

On the plus side, both girls (who I was seeing separately, one whom I really liked) ended up ghosting me not too long afterwards, so I don't have to be reminded of that night.

I mean... the girl was a little heavier then she was in her online dating profile pictures. Which was fine. Still cute. But we had literally nothing in common, the conversation was so forced, and it just sucked. I felt bad, and didn't really know how to end the date without being a dick, because she was a nice girl, but she came up with some lame excuse and left at like 9 pm. We met up at around 8. I had maybe 2 drinks, she had half of one. Then I ubered to a bar my friends were at and had an okay time. It was just a huge bummer. On paper, she seemed awesome.

And again, I don't want to be mean, but it's hard to carry a conversation when you're barely getting one word answers out of the other person, and they show no interest in anything you try to say to save the conversation. I have rarely had a date THAT bad in my life. I don't understand why she even agreed to go out with me if she was that uninterested in even trying to talk to me. She spent half the night (well, hour or so) on her phone.

No, it's fine. I've just been on a bit of a losing streak lately. I had an amazing run pre-covid, then dated a girl for about a year, and it's been a bit more mixed since then. Usually fine, but this week has just been not great. I'm thinking next week will be much better!

Yeah, that wouldn't have been a bad idea, I suppose. I was just a bit turned off by the whole experience.

Like my St Patricks day girl I picked up in a bar. She spends all night all over me, comes back to my friends place, then back to mine, and when I make a move, starts freaking out and says she has a boyfriend and then takes off. Like what the actual fuck?

Although, a bit of an update, not sure if I told you guys -- while cleaning last night, I accidentally knocked over the garbage can and while picking everything up found a balled up thing of aluminum foil that looked like a coke wrapper. So I'm thinking now that mayyybe she was coked up all night, ran out of coke, and took off to see her "boyfriend" / coke dealer. Which would make a ton of sense.

I like Harrison a lot, but he was exasperating to the other Beatles, George Martin, and the engineers. Harrison had a lot of problems coming up with guitar solos and Paul (especially) or John often stepped in to keep sessions moving along.

George essentially stopped playing guitar from 1965 to 1968 in order to concentrate on mastering Indian instruments.

George started getting his playing and songwriting together during the White Album and by Abbey Road was a songwriting equal to John and Paul.

Those are the terms used for the automatic drying control, vs the timed drying control. The Automatic cycles uses some sensors and combination of air temperature and air moisture to determine when to stop.

"More dry" means max that out, and "less dry" means leave more moisture in.

I put my clothes in the dryer to make them dry, why do I need multiple options for this? Why would I ever select anything other than "dry"? And "less dry" i can understand in theory (still wet), but what the hell is "more dry"?

I feel like George Carlin with this stuff, but it's been annoying me all day (yes, I've been on a laundry kick today, why do you ask?)

So it makes perfect sense to me that my knit shirts are less dry than my towels when they come out of the washer.

No shit.

Makes perfect sense in English. Merriam-Webster defines the pre- prefix thus:

1) a) 1) Earlier than, prior to, before. (Precambrian, prehistoric)

2) preparatory or prerequisite to: (premedical)

b) in advance, beforehand (precancel, prepay)

2) in front of; anterior to (premolar, preaxial)

Preheat is perfect English, in the sense of 1) b).

454 I think what is killing pro sports (before the propaganda, of course) was the money. What they have to sell is getting attached to the players enough to care if they succeed or not. I understand the players just want to get rich if they can and I don't blame them, but it's hard to care which bunch of mercenaries who will play for whatever team will pay them the most and switch teams without a thought except getting paid, wins. It was one thing when a major star made big bucks, but when the backup shortstop gets $2 million it's like thinking you should root for hedge fund managers to get the best parking spot at the company.

could not have gone worse. It was like something out of a sitcom with
how much we did not click at all.

Worst first date for me: She asks about my weekend, I'd visited my parents told a story - and about her parents, who were apparently dead. Recently-ish. In a car accident.
Later: Telling a story about my nephew, ask her if she has kids - she's got one, apparently severely physically disabled.

At that point I gave up and let her talk mostly...and she mostly talked about how terrible her ex was. And...that was the first and last with her.

I don't start ripping in to them unless they totally deserve it, and ... you're right, I'm sure broseidon has said things I missed, and maybe he's the asshole in this situation and I was too quick to jump to his defense.

But even then, there's a difference between saying "dude, I think you're the asshole in this situation" and shitting on someone in a negative way. And maybe I've spent too much time on reddit, where that's the normal way for people to speak. I just don't think the 'hq needs that kind of negativity.

But yes, a bit of a heads up would have been nice.

Hilariously, she left, I jumped in the shower because I'm a germophobe, and I hear aggressive banging on my door, turns out she left her juul on my nightstand. The doorman told me she freaked out, screamed at him, ran upstairs, and 3 neighbors complained because someone was banging on their doors in the middle of the night.

473 I lied, one more comment. I would postulate that talking about the woman one would rather be on a date with is worse than talking about one's ex. Many (14) years ago, I agreed to a date with a friend, who after I agreed, then spent the next couple of hours talking about the girl he was in looooove with. Luckily for him, it was via IM, so he didn't see me rolling my eyes (I knew the girl in question, and whether she genuinely was out of his league or not, she certainly firmly believed she was). He concluded with "I am so messed up", and I said, "I'd say so. You just scored a date with a hot chick and then spent the next two hours talking about another woman." Apparently, the wink emoticon I appended to soften the message did its job too well, as he replied, "That's why you're so great."

There was not a second date. (I should have canceled the first, as I'm not interested in being a consolation prize, but I felt I'd already agreed, so...)

She wasn't that hot. I mean, in her dating profile pics she was, but those pics were taken 40 pounds ago.

She was a lot of fun though (once I got over the annoyance of her pics not matching what she looked like), until the whole herpes thing. Well, and the bragging about how many dudes she'd banged. Which is a weird flex for a girl. Like yeah, you have a vagina, I'm not impressed.

She was young though -- I think she was like 23, and I was 31 or so at the time.

SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?

Dude, this is NOT someone you want to get involved with!

Yeah, a threesome sounds good on paper - to CRAZY people - but is that really what you want?

Think long and hard before you answer that question - two people are going to get hurt in that situation, and if this gal is the one suggesting it, she is just nuts!

WHAT kind of woman finds a good man and wants to share him with another woman? There are CHILDREN involved in this relationship - what kind of mother exposes her children to that kind of behavior?

I was chatting a girl up at the bar on st patricks day before I met that other chick. The girl i was talking to was a bit overweight, and was wearing basically a green piece of cloth that covered her massive assets but nothing else.

She was 25. And she bragged to me that she'd slept with 85 guys. And, yeah, I was disgusted. My buddies said I should have taken her home because she'd know what to do. But like... ew. Even if that's true, you don't tell a guy you're flirting with about that. Like, jesus christ. How is that a turn on in any way? "oh, I get to be #86, hopefully I'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't catch whatever horrible STD's you have." Gross.

I was in a conversation today with a bro and a friend about this very topic. NFL was once a bulletproof money-maker, but going all Woke during the game, when average Joes and Janes are willing to spend hundreds of dollars to just forget their worries for a day and have some fun.
But NOOOOO!! Kneel, whitie! BLM, baby! The salary cap dropped for the first time ever by about 8%, and all kinds of good players are being cut. So the NFL is trying to force the networks to double their multi-billion dollar broadcast fees. Yet, game ratings are down over 20% from just 3 years ago, even more from 5 years ago.
IDK the answer, but I watched less NFL last year by far, and most others I know watched less, too.

Yep. The smart crooks will do it as a "one and done", and the victim usually feels he got off lightly, and won't pursue the crooks, if he even manages to figure out that it was a con from the get-go.

The dumb crooks turn it into onhoing blackmail, and eventually the victim may decide that some gunshots will settle the issue.

543 @Broseiden-She's a single mother fast approaching her thirties or well into her early thirties. Two kids looking for stability and security, still has a sweet ass, attractive and the kids didn't do too much damage to her body so she still has sexual market value she's clinging to and gonna use it. She knows the clock is ticking on her sexual market value. She's about to monkey branch on you. She's about to swing from one "vine" to the next. Your days are numbered
You said yourself last night "kinda slutty". In other words she's had a lot of dick run through her. This has affected her ability to pair bond. Probably why her and the babies father split up.
All you are for now Broseidon is a safe place to land, security until she feels she's secured the next guy and she'll drop you so fast your head will spin. She'll give you some BS story how she's done with men or something close to that, then a week or two weeks later you'll see her with the new chump.
This morning your talk should have been you telling her it's over (in a calm manner) and sending her on her way.

There was a recent episode replayed of Dragnet based on a variation of the badger game. Hottie works some hotel where some convention is being held and seduces some mark. She gets him in his hotel room, and her accomplices, posing as cops, break down the door and arrest her for prostitution.

The explain to the mark, yep, she's a prostitute who works this hotel. They are sympathetic to his plight, and hem and haw, and explain that if he "pays her bail", she'll probably skip fast, and there won't be a case, etc, etc. Which will probably keep his name out of the papers back home and his wife won't find out he was "consorting with prostitutes."

I used to watch the TV show Castle, mostly to stare at Stana Katic, and can recall at least 3 different shows with the badger game as the plot off the top of my head.

550 There's a women's joke about that, lol, it goes:
"I'm not looking for Mr. Right, I'm only looking for Mr. Right-Now"
Are you happy in that role, Broseidon? Really at ease with it? Be honest with yourself-- I don't require your answer.
----
I'm on my 3rd go-round of the 29yr cycle... so, you may think I'm too old-fashioned, a Fuddy-Duddy, whathaveyou... but here's my unsolicited advice anyway:
Comes a time, that any man (or woman!) must take a stand-- proclaim their requirements for happiness in life, although no other person can tell them what those requirements must be. *Personal Choice!* And you don't need to explain or defend it to anyone.

Just realize, please, that you must choose *something* because otherwise you'll only get the dregs of society's offerings.
Keep doing what you're doing, and you'll keep getting what you're getting, IYKWIM.
Sometimes it's better to step back and assess, make changes, etc before proceeding?

551 Hey, AOP, have you heard any updates about going home for the spring without being locked up against your will in your own country, because shut-up?

Just curious. And frankly, it bothers me this nonsense continues everywhere. It is now harmful to open societies.

Oh, and in another window, just fired up your link. King Biscuit Boy. Yeah, that's my kind of late night tunes.

552
Perry Mason episode I remember: some conman, "Country Boy", seduces wealthy older women with promises of marriage. His accomplice, hot young Latino chick, breaks into the room they're in at some appointed time.

Chick screams she's "Country Boy's" wife, he's left her, etc, etc, and she's gonna sue the hell out of the woman, etc, etc. At some point, and offer is made that if the woman pays up, everything will go away.

Country boy gets murdered. Turns out the Mexican hottie who played the wife actually murdered Country Boy, because he had fallen in love with the mark, and was really going to marry her, and dump the accomplice.

My current plan is to drive home, with an Alberta friend who is similarly stranded, on April 28th, and hit the border on the 30th. Apparently we can refuse to take the covid test, and refuse to be quarantined in a hotel, and they cannot legally stop us.

555 So in the last couple of weeks, I watched a young Bette Davis and Humphrey Bogart in the 1937 movie "Marked Woman" and learned what a Clip-Joint was.
And now this evening, I learned what a Badger Game is.

Yeah, not exactly the road to enlightenment, but hey it's entertaining and titillating.
Oh, and a 1937 Betty Davis is one hot babe. Holy moly.

I see the phrase "badger game" goes back to 1909. I'm sure the actual con is older than that by far, but that's what Merriam-Webster says is the date of the phrase.

Sounds like you're using each other and getting what you can out of it. I expect it won't last. Don't bond with those kids - they'll have a list of "uncles" to tell stories about when they're sitting at the bar in 15 years. You don't have to be one of them.

571 @567 Miley, the Duchess-No, he's not using her. He's clearly invested. If he was "using" her he wouldn't be here mentioning her being at some other dudes house drinking and hanging out because she oopsie'd and forgot they were suppose to hang out.
Flipping it and now trying to say he's just using her to get his is just trying to save face. Even if a girl is just an occasional booty call, you don't let them do shit like that. You need to maintain some semblance of dignity. If this was some sort of mutual agreement/arrangement between two consenting adults she would not have told him she was at another guys house.

ok Skip, I want you to figure out some way to get to the Texas MoMe. Ben Had has decreed the dates are Oct 22 and 23. About an hour+ south of Dallas. You will have expert coaches to help you figure out how to improve. Every part of your shooting game will be analyzed, for free of course (Moron 100% discount) and on top of that, you will have one of the greatest experiences for you. And your wife.
Seriously. Some of the greatest shooting teachers will be there. As will be some of the greatest people you will ever know in your life.
Trust me. Remember, we both like blueberry pancakes and bacon.
I'll bring the coffee from Seattle.
