    Everything is bigger in Texas. Well, so the men claim. :p

    I don't think that funny, is funny.
    Maybe I'm weird that way.

    @federica
    I have no stake in this, believe me. But I am curious why you don't think this is funny. Would you mind explaining?

    I just don't think jokes about suicide by hanging are funny.
    Robin Williams hanged himself, which made me cry that day.

    Don't worry, it's probably only me.

    No funny stuff thread is complete without this Buddhist joke...

    A zen master walks up to a hot dog stand in New York,
    And asks the vendor, "make me one with everything".
    He then pays with a 20, and is about to walk away,
    When he turns and asks, "hold on, where is my change?"
    "Ah brother," replies the vendor, "change must come from within".

    ....and then as the vendor starts to run off down the street, he turns his head and shouts "Form is Emptiness Emptiness is Form" then smiles clutching the $20 bill ...... :wink:

    I walked into the grocery store yesterday and realized there was no way I would get shopping done if I didn't use the restroom. I walked to the back of the store, and ran in the bathroom hoping I wasn't going to tinkle on myself. Swung the door open, and immediately thought "why the hell are there sinks on the wall"? I turned around and saw Adjua standing outside the door and she says " mommy...your in the mens room" :3. .... First time in my life I ever did that. Hahaha.

    I did that at a rest stop in France... We'd stopped for fuel and a bite to eat. Time to go! Hang on, I need the ladies' room. The queue! My goodness, a queue?! You have to be kidding me! 5 lavatories for a busy rest stop?! I See the door swing open in the men's room... SIX cubicles - and 6 stand-up 'pissoirs'! No contest. I stride in, head for the closest open cubicle, and do what must be done.
    I exit, wash my hands and leave.

    Oh, People - this is FRANCE! They don't give a damn where you go!

    Tee Hee.

    Vive la France. Maybe they can invade Middle Earth aka little england, like they did in 1066. Just a thought for us Brit unisexers ... :3

    And now back to the serious humourists

  • @federica said: Oh, People - this is FRANCE! They don't give a damn where you go!

    I blame it on the EU myself. :p

    First the Vikings, then the French, and now Polish builders! Pah! I blame the EU. :p

    I don't know, I look at that joke and all that comes to mind is commentary on conditioned society goals and the unaware, brainless following of a basic script in most people's lives. For me it fails to be funny, and is even slightly offensive in its assumption that money is the peak goal at the peak age.

    Edit: I was obviously in an ornery early morning pre-coffee state of mind... Metta to all :)

    @Kerome tis the irony of life's many challenges...and to see the funny side would depend on where ones mind is at, ie, the mood one is in at the time...events that are going on in ones life etc etc...

    One can if one so choose take offence/find fault in/at any number of things, if one puts ones mind to it....

    I'm sorry you can't see the humour in the joke...but it was not in any way meant to offend...

    The perfect Answering Machine message...

    It's a device connected to a landline phone, where one can leave a personal recorded voice message if one cannot 'personally' answer the phone........next you'll be asking what's a landline phone ??? :wink:

    Particularly the last comment, @Shoshin
    KIndly take (Moderator) note.

  • ShoshinShoshin No one in particular Nowhere Special Veteran

    A question was asked "What's an answering machine?" hence the picture answer link as oppose to putting up the actual picture...If @person's question was a joke (which it might well have been) then I'm the butt of the joke...so be it :)
