The Saturday Night Joke

My buddy met an older woman at a bar last night. She looked pretty good for a 60-year-old. In fact, she wasn't too bad at all, and I found myself thinking she probably had a really hot daughter.

We drank a couple of beers, and she asked if I'd ever had a Sportsman's Double? 'What's that? I asked. 'It's a mother and daughter threesome,' she said.
As my mind began to embrace the idea, and I wondered what her daughter might look like, I said, 'No, I haven't.'

We drank a bit more, then she said with a wink, 'tonight's your lucky night'. We went back to her place. We walked in.

She put on the hall light and shouted upstairs: 'Mom...you still awake?'(H/T Hrothgar)

Straight, gay, bi, celibate, trans, it doesn't matter. For Pride Month, Taco Bell To Continue Giving Explosive Diarrhea To All Genders And Orientations

U.S.—Taco Bell, a beloved chain of authentic Mexican food restaurants around the world, has announced they will be honoring Pride Month by giving LGBTQ customers explosive diarrhea like they always do.


"Taco Bell remains truly committed to equality, equity, equilibrium, equivocation, and other 'eq' words for all genders and sexual orientations," said Yum! Brands CEO Mark King. "No one should be told they don't deserve explosive diarrhea on a Saturday night because of how they identify or who they love."

To recognize the dignity and achievements of LGBTQ+ people around the world, Taco Bell has directed their food alchemists to concoct new rainbow-colored chemical abominations that deliciously hit the spot after a night of unfettered debauchery.

Explosive diarrhea. Is there any other kind?

Well, here’s one way to get out of work: production on NBC’s upcoming game show, Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide, has been put on pause indefinitely after an outbreak of “explosive diarrhea” occurred on set earlier this month. Now, that’s what we call a shitshow.

Filming officially shut down on June 2nd, when producers were first made aware that a crew member had tested positive for giardia, a tiny parasite that causes a diarrheal disease called giardiasis. While test samples of a well, pond, slide pool, water truck, and restroom sinks all came back negative for giardia, additional results found on June 10th that giardia had been in the set’s surrounding area.

Someone, somewhere has some explaining to do. A shitton of coke washes up on Florida beach.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Multiple packages of cocaine washed ashore on a beach at Cape Canaveral last month, the US Space Force said.

Angy Chambers, a wildlife manager for the 45th Civil Engineer Squadron, was patrolling the beach to perform a sea turtle nesting survey on May 19 when she noticed a small package wrapped tightly in plastic and tape. She thought it could be drugs and contacted the 45th Security Forces Squadron.


Just thinking out loud, I wonder if Angy will be undergoing any random drug tests over the next 6 months or so.

The Longbow vs. Crossbow fight has taken a weird turn in Japan.

Until now it was easier to get your hands on a crossbow than an air rifle.


On Tuesday, Japan’s House of Representatives held a plenary session, and the days discussions of matters of national legislative importance eventually turned to crossbows.

Surprisingly, despite spelling out rules and regulations regarding all sorts of weaponry, Japan’s Firearm and Sword Control Law apparently had no preexisting rules, specifically no specific ordinances, relating to crossbows, of either the two-handed or single-handed pistol crossbow/bowgun variety, perhaps because crossbows are technically neither firearms or swords. As a result, up to now there’s been no specific licensing required for their possession or use. Much like in a fantasy role-playing video game, if you had enough money to pay for a crossbow, you could buy one and use it as you personally saw fit.

That’ll be changing soon, though, as the House of Representatives passed a motion to amend the Firearm and Sword Control Law, and once it goes into effect Japanese residents will need a permit from their Prefectural Public Safety Commission in order to possess a crossbow. The requirement is modeled after one already in place for air rifle ownership, which requires the completion of safety classes and for the owner to be at least 18 years of age.

What's the old saying? Oh yeah, a fool and his money are soon parted. $1.99 per minute for stuck fetish.

'Probably the best video I ever made!' Woman who is paid to make 'stuck fetish' content for fans gets TRAPPED in a metal folding chair and has to be freed by the jaws of life in viral TikTok

Sydney Jo, 27, from Ann Arbor, Michigan, documented her panic on TikTok after she squeezed into a small opening in the chair and couldn't get herself out

A follow-up clip showed firefighters using the jaws of life to free her
Sydney later explained that she is a 'stuck fetish' creator and was working on a new video when the stunt backfired

She said fans pay $1.99 a minute to watch her trap herself and then try to get free, but this was the first time she was ever truly stuck

Sydney had a sense of humor about the situation and joked that it was 'probably the best stuck video I ever made'

Go ask your overpaid players and broadcast partners to pony up.

Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper re-asserted his position on Tuesday that he would not build the team a new stadium without government assistance. It’s the latest example of a multi-billion dollar NFL owner expecting local citizens to foot the bill of pet projects under the guise of fandom.

Tepper’s proposition isn’t unique. Rather, it’s become part of the fabric of the NFL’s new-normal which treats its cities as expendable — unless they’re willing to pay. The ever-present subtext in these discussions is that if local government won’t foot the bill, a team will find a city that will, even if nobody is saying it.

“I’m not building a stadium alone,” Tepper told reporters on Tuesday. “The community is going to have to want it.” The Panthers owner added that he wasn’t going to force a new stadium on anyone, but once again, the devil is in the details. It’s bizarre of Tepper to say he won’t “force” a stadium on the people after years of publicly stating he wants a new stadium with a retractable roof to house the Panthers, his recently-purchased MLS team, and host larger events, potentially even a Super Bowl.

Opinions are like noses, everybody has one, including the Smithsonian. The best small towns to visit this year.

Perhaps more than ever, now is a time to appreciate America's small towns. As we begin to see the other side of a pandemic that kept so many of us isolated, it is easier to understand the value in those things we've missed. Whether it's by enjoying an outdoor summer concert with neighbors or by catching up with friends at the local brewpub, a sense of community has been hard to find for many; Zoom and FaceTime made for adequate, virtual stand-ins, but they don't compare to the real thing. It's those in-person interactions with familiar faces that make small towns so alluring. That is, along with the independent shops, hidden gem parklands, historic sites and architecture, unique restaurant finds, and, of course, a slower pace of life and relative affordability that numerous city dwellers are finding more and more appealing.

Fortunately, many of America's small towns are emerging from the effects of Covid-19 resilient and ready to welcome visitors. Some, like Dyersville, Iowa, are finally hosting long-anticipated sporting events that the pandemic placed on hold. Others, such as Council Grove, Kansas, are celebrating historic anniversaries. Whatever the case, the 15 places we've chosen as the best small towns to visit in 2021 are prime examples of perseverance and preservation, and reminders of all that we love about small towns in the first place

Holidays have lost their names in this school district.

NEW JERSEY - After an outcry at a raucous public meeting over a previous decision to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples Day, the board of education at a New Jersey school district decided to strip all holiday names off of the school calendar.

So holidays like Thanksgiving will not be on the calendar and will simply be called "day off". Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur were also stripped off the calendar by the move.

Somebody won't be allowed to the AoS Book Thread on Sunday. Genius Award Winner.

A 21-year-old Florida Woman who was naked from the waist down inside a Circle K told a cop that “another deputy told her it was fine to do that,” according to an arrest report.

Responding to a 1:30 AM “naked woman in public" call last Thursday, police found Kendall Mabry sans pants or underwear inside the convenience store in Umatilla, a city about 45 miles from Orlando.

A Circle K clerk and a sheriff’s deputy both reported seeing Mabry emerge from the store’s bathroom “with no pants or underwear on.” When asked about her state of undress, Mabry reportedly “stated that another deputy told her it was fine to do that.”

Mabry, police reported, smelled of alcohol and her speech was slurred. Additionally, “the smell of marijuana was coming out of her vehicle.” Mabry’s pants were found inside her car, according to the arrest report.

68 Good old Wallace, ID, at the base of Lookout Pass on I-90. At one time it had the only traffic control device on I-90 because the interstate went through the town. It was a red light which not only controlled traffic but was a reminder that the town had an active red light district.

The town and red light district took a beating after the nearby 1972 Sunshine silver mine disaster. If I ever make it to a MoMe I'll tell tales of Wallace.

joke answer, if it taste like creme fraiche, it is losing the sour.

real answer, if it has little green things on it and basically tastes like shit, then toss. it.

I had a recent thing with avocados. There is a state between turning brown and being ripe that avocados get into. It is hard to describe, but it sucks big time. The thing gets more dense, still green mostly, but something is off. You can still use them, but they are well passed their prime. It is like porno, you know it when you see it.

So I spent an hour or more welding a two-piece trailer tongue onto the undercarriage of a twin-wheel wheelbarrow so I can tow it behind the golf cart like a little trailer. Works great! And I can pull out a pin and remove the tongue extension so that manual use of the wheelbarrow is not impaired at all. Got my sod moved, and more weed-whacking done.

Cowbirds and cuckoos. Probably more. We had a nest in a juniper bush that, upon closer inspection, had two different types of eggs in it. One was clearly a cowbird egg.

208 Yesterday (I think) there was a discussion about mechanical 35mm film cameras. Someone mentioned the problem of replacing the now discontinued mercury batteries many of these older cameras used. There is a direct replacement in the correct 1.35 voltage. It's the Weincell. Not especially cheap at 4 to 5 bucks each but they will work. Adorama and B and H Camera in NYC have them and Amazon probably does. Just FYI. I would prefer to use a separate light meter or re-learn how to estimate exposure. I used to be pretty good at that.

Also, there was a mention of how good Minolta lenses were. I never had a Minolta 35mm but do have a Minolta Autocord TLR. Haven't used it in a while but recall the lenses were superb. Excellent clarity and detail wide open even for medium format. I didn't feel camera envy compared to the Rollei users.

Hmmm. Now I want to go through my old film cameras, see what's there and if they still operate. I know I have some 35mm film in the freezer. Wonder if there is still some 120 film with it.

Thanks for the Weincell tip! I will check with one of the big camera retailers here in Alberta if they carry them. Mercury batteries were never very cheap, either. The actual power consumed by the match-needle metering system is trivial; the battery essentially lasts for its entire shelf life.

248 Taco Bell is Mexi food with the training wheels still on it.

It was exotic... in 1962 when it first appeared. But as American tastes for Mexican food evolved, TB's menu stayed pretty much the same. So now it's a throwback.

249 ..Hmmm. Now I want to go through my old film cameras, see what's there and if they still operate. I know I have some 35mm film in the freezer. Wonder if there is still some 120 film with it. Posted by: JTB at June 12, 2021 10:04 PM (7EjX1)

Put that frozen film in the fridge for 72 hours, then bring it out to ambient room temperature. Helps reduce thermal shock and emulsion damage.

Nikon, Minolta & Olympus had/have topnotch reputations in the scientific instrument industry. Microscopes and other wildly divergent research optics. Alas, Steven Green of Vodkapundit is thinking that Nikon is a dead camera manufacturer walking. Behind the PJ Media paywall, so I could only read the intro. Glad I snagged my Nikon Df while I still could!

Their best Taco Bell hit was when there was a danger of a beef shortage because of Covid their headline was something like

256 Stuck Fetish??? Don't let this person join your caving group.... Posted by: NaCly Dog

Story my brother told of him and two friends exploring his cave in Missouri. Brother & one guy squeeze through this tiny opening. Other guy can't quite squeeze through. All they can see is his angry red face in the floor. Blocking their only way out. So they took their axes...

Let-down punchline: He removed his wallet and got through.

I really liked the great big rooms at the front of the cave. Any further in, my claustrophobia would kick in. I'd never try squeezing through such that small opening.

Gonna refresh my beverage and watch some vid with Milady. Y'all don't have any fun while I'm gone, m'kay?

Inflation nation: John Williams at Shadowstats has update his numbers with the latest CPI. As I've mentioned here before, this guy takes the raw data and calculates inflation as the govt used to, pre-1980 and pre-90 (or so).

By the pre-90 method, headline inflation would be 8% and by the pre-80 method, it would be 13%.

So, folks, since that's the method they used in the '70s era, you can pretty say we're in 70s levels of inflation.

Lots of potential side effects related to immune suppression. Me, I've had singles outbreaks probably close to ten times. Had a little pop out last week. My doc keeps me stocked up on acylcovir. That knocked it out in several days. This is not normal shingles by the way. It generally occurs at the peak of immune suppression.

It's a hard benefit to risk calculation. These drug ads tout the former. Don't tell you too much about the latter. Gloss it over.

He and a couple of other sailors found a nice little on the island and noticed there was a buoy in the middle with a sign on it that they couldn't quite make out.

They swam out to the buoy and found that it read something like, DANGER. No swimming. Uncleared Japanese naval mines.

Pizza Hut was good too. But it was not fast food, it was legit fine dining indoors. But you are right, Wendy's was much better back then. It is kind of weird they for some reason decided to suck and at best go into a slow decline. Must be a cash cow or something.

Troo 'dat although down deep Jordan was kind of a prick. His induction speech into the Basketball HOF was a grab bag of tasteless jabs at people he inexplicably carried long term grudges against; and invited them to the event to insult them. He learned a lot of humility during his "baseball hiatus" but fell back from time to time. Plus Don Corleone Stern placed a lot of emphasis on him being the face of the league.

LeBron is an example of a not intelligent person being influenced by Gaylord.

You're very kind.

Dad had to choose between two paths from his barracks to his station every morning: one path had snakes, lizards, and critters; the other had jungle Japanese surrender hold-outs taking occasional wild pot shots.

He chose the path with Japanese fanatics over the one with snakes.

Dad brought back some souvenirs from Guam, like money and trinkets, but he had no interest in Japanese souvenirs, if you catch my drift. His main contact with the Japanese was POWs.

personally I think that Joel Mokyr has messed up his philosophy of types of knowledge by inventing fairly opaque jargon to describe it, AND he likes saying Schumpteter far too much.
Also he should read Jean Piaget on development.


I once wrote a girlfriend's chapter report in her econ 101 class where the textbook was written in part by Paul Krugman (that man pisses me off) by using Austrian definitions and conclusions. She got a B and was told she clearly was interested in the history of economics.

I guess now they do, and that is a good thing.

THey made them in Mcallen Texas. I know the place well, but the MRE's are not the highlight of the place. Not sure where they hail from these days. I do know they are much better than what we got. This went through Congress, and a bunch of politicos made some hay about it. Yes, they were that bad.

602 I thought Miller Genuine Draft. Looking back at the bottle,I think that is the case. The bottle shape stands out. I am not sure what threw me off the scent as that was my original idea. Sure the dark color, but that is likely lighting.

something made me question it, but since you brought it up again, I checked some bottle images. I think that is right, but then again, I could be wrong.

You go through your teens wondering if there'll be even a scrap of food in the house till your next dishwasher paycheck hits, and C-Rats were a blessing and a luxury.

I fed well in field exercises, gathering up the various unopened tins and packages from the C-Rats abandoned by those more pampered than me.

617 the dehydrated meat patties were awesome, if you had time to cook: people would throw them away, so i always had plenty: smash'em down, take a mess kit pan, add water, ramen noodles (also smashed) cook up with dehydrated onion flakes, garlic and onion powder, plus the seasoning packet, dehydrated catsup/beef base packet, add the meat particles when the noodles were done, remove from heat, add a cheese packet or two, and nom.

hell, i'm hungry now, just thinking about it. i had a back pack stove from REI, took a wire brush on a drill to the mess pan and canteen cup, then painted the outside with high temp flat black spray paint, for heat absorption, and was styling. the stove fuel cans lived in a 30 cal ammo can.

Spot of hope for MN. My estranged brother just copped to a felony plea of 40 months, less time served for a failed home invasion he tried to pull off, there.

The pity is though, he should've got about fifteen years. Bonus: he plead out to a misdemeanor Electronic Harassment charge I had filed against him. Texting threats from jail from a jail's own lawyer comm text system, is self incrimination of the first order. He turned 65 in jail, last September. And he just never learns. Many state and federal terms, him.

Next time I see him will likely be when I scatter his ashes across an MN potter's field.

642 riffing on not unassing the track: years back, a Marine got left behind on guard duty, no one noticed, and he died within sight of a road here in SoCal, IIRC. (Twenty Nine Stumps) he stopped and ate an MRE meal, which aided in dehydrating him, and he didn't ditch any of his gear, so he was at a disadvantage, which killed him.

on board leaking track: "lets get all this gear off" (web gear, body armor, weapons, pro mask, you name it) "oh, we can't do that, we'll be on the hook for it if it's lost"

track takes on water, everyone is overloaded and unable to get out/to the surface. FTS: i'll be alive to do the report of survey forms, as a constructive loss.

650 Lebron doesn't have the mental toughness to get gatorade for Jordan. One of my favorite Jordan stories is the greatest game ever played.

During prep for the dream Team Olympics, the team was in Monte Carlo practicing before going to Barcelona. Tim Daly had set up East vs West scrimmages. It was pretty even until the last day, when Magic Johnson's West team jumped out to a ten point lead. Johnson told MJ, "You better turn into Air Jordan or you're going to get blown out."

Things started getting chippy with more trash talk and multiple Jordan 3 pointers and a 360 dunk over/around David Robinson. Jordan's team stormed back and won the game.

After the game, there was a lot of tension in the air and both teams were quiet on the bus trip back to the hotel until Magic said loud enough for everyone to hear, "Well, I guess we shouldn't have pissed the man off." At which point the whole bus burst out in laughter.

"45 minutes before the other AAV with embarked personnel pulled alongside."

"In the closing endorsement, COMMARFORPAC found contributing factors included lack of training"

These guys were part of the 15th MEU, they are expected to be T1 rating (highest) for SORTs (Status of Readiness and Training) which means their BN S-3 and CO declared them at T1. Which means their careers are over too.

I was a gunner with 3D LAR, LAV-25s at 29 Palms, AAVs were kind of our rival sister tribe. One year a Section Lead (CPL or SGT) thought it would be a good idea to give our scouts some cross-training in driving the LAV-25 in case we lost our driver in combat. I would have agreed at the time.

But a sand berm collapsed under the vehicle's left side, causing it to roll. The gunner was pop up in the turret and it crushed him in half, killing him.

Everyone in the chained of command was fired - Platoon Sgt, Platoon Commander, Company Commander. And none were even aware of what their Section Lead was doing. Didn't matter, it happened on their watch.

688 "I have a vision of someone checking that the bayonet will slide into its notch easily and quickly, and almost silently."

Not me.

Don't tell anyone, but I almost took my eye out with my bayonet. We were cleaning weaps after an op and I left my bayonet attached to the M16A2 (like a dumbass). Release collar for the barrel shrouds wouldn't release, so I put both hands on it and leaned in hard. ...derp... my hands were sweaty so my grip slipped down the rifle, and my upper torso and head followed downward towards the bayonet, which skimmed just an inch outside my left eye. Almost got my ear too.

Startled, I looked up just in time to see my Platoon Sgt facepalming (poor guy). That earned my one of those "pushups until I get tired of watching you" punishments. Which was well earned SMH

Apparently, Armour stopped making the hog brains because of a problem in the processing plants. A process using compressed air to process the brains cause pig brain aerosols to get in the air and be breathed in by some workers. It caused an immune reaction.

You eat a lot of stuff that would be very bad and trigger all sorts of allergic and immune reactions if it got directly into your bloodstream.

The papers on this subject I saw were behind a paywall so I couldn't read exactly, but apparently, in some people, breathing in the fine pig brain material caused an autoimmune reaction which caused some serious problems in some of these workers at the brain station.

It turned out it was an autoimmune reaction. That is, the hog brain material being breathed in trigger a response from the immune system. But this agent was so close to the body's own tissue, that the antibodies and all that started attacking the body's own tissue.

In this case it was causing spinal inflammation and neve damage.

At the time of writing, it wasn't clear why it just suddenly popped up. Did procedures change, or what. These questions were unanswered as of the above article writing.

I'm getting to tired and lazy to look into this any more tonight, but it's got my curiosity up and I'm gonna see if I can find any papers on this brain blowing disease. It's been over 10 years, and I'm sure they've got it figured out by now.

But Rose Brains, the sole canned brains product left on the market, does not use compressed air anymore to extract the brains.

People have been eating hog brains for a long time with no problems, so there has been really no reason for concern.

Re God laughing. That reminds me. With Art Bell and others over the years, I've heard many near death experience stories. Some of them quite moving.

Some claim they were in the presence of Jesus but only have vague memories. They say they remember "knowing so much, understanding it all, but can't remember". And they describe being in a state of such joy and happiness, with a feeling of Love that can't be experienced in our earthy state.

They didn't want to leave, but got, "No my child, it's not time for you to come home, you must go back".

And the funniest thing is they describe Jesus Christ as having one heck of a sense of humor. He's a very funny Man. He makes you laugh. With a joy you've never experienced.

When Jesus looks at us , does he laugh or cry?

I'm thinking Divine head shaking, with a smile.

790 >> 'm thinking Divine head shaking, with a smile.

That's something to ponder. I think Jesus is very sympathetic.

I think this is all a big learning experience for us, this life on Earth thing. Recalling some more of these near death experience tales, there is a big "Life Review" that will occur.

Something like Jesus going over your life with you, and want you did good and what you did wrong. You will see the full effects of your actions, big and small. That little nasty comment you made, how it affected those around you. Stuff like that.

And in that big Life Review, it's not going to be about how much money you made, how many awards you got, or stuff like that. How many degrees or credentials you amassed. How big a deal you were.

It's going to be about other things. Like, oh, "suffer the little children", and "these the least of my brethen". You know, stuff concerning immortal souls and their fate.

There is saying I know from Hungary.

Life is like a game of chess, at the end the kings and pawns go in to the same box.
