  • Why is Donald Trumps book "The Art of the Deal" so thick?

    Because it has four chapter elevens.

      So they have SNL in Canada? I guess so

      • Yup. I put that one on here because a lot of the old guys on the forum have gone to bed before SNL comes on and it's funny because it's true, in an ironic sort of way. Of course most of the things "the Donald" does are funny in a sad sort of way.

My dog in the backseat came up over my seat back and just missed taking his face off by literally millimeters. The cop falls back on his butt. I told him I had not had any alcohol but the dog had a few! He actually laughed and said it was his fault. I told him I was glad he didn't get hurt but it wasn't very smart to enter a car uninvited!! Two other cops were running up as he landed on his butt but the officer waved them off.
          Back in the 80s, I had a Jeep CJ7 and an English mastiff. Buford (the mastiff) weighed in at over 200lbs, huge dog could put his pays on my shoulders and look me straight in the eyes.

          He loved riding in the jeep and would sit in back looking out the window while driving, then when I'd stop and get out he'd jump into the driver's seat and watch what I did.
          One day, I stopped for gas and Buford jumped in the driver's seat as normal. There was some guy that had walked up to several people to with a sheet of paper in his hand, trying to get directions to somewhere.

          And he walked up to the driver's door of the jeep looking at the paper, He got as far as asking "hey do you know where....", when Buford stuck his head out the window.
          Next thing I know the guy is running down the sidewalk saying "Oh sh**, O my God, holy crap". I never did hear where he was going, he was getting somewhere fast.

            Well, if the guy was actually collecting signatures on a Koch brothers petition, Buford did his good deed for the day. And boosted some clothing store's profits by one pair of new shorts.

            • This is a true story that happened recently. Our Chef(cook) said to me as I was walking through the kitchen that everything he touched today turned to shi!. Without thinking I said, "well isn't that true eveyday?" He got all indignant and huffy so of course I was laughing at him which just made him more mad. Finally I couldn't take any more of his ranting so I told him to think about what I said before he gets all pissed off but he didn't get it so I had to explain what I meant. I told him if you eat anything no matter who cooks it after a while you have to go to the bathroom and......so everything he cooks ends up as shi!..........he finally understood what I meant and even laughed a little. He is the personification of a temperamental Chef. If he wasn't so good at his job I would fire him sometimes. Most times I try to stay out of the kitchen when he is there.

                  We've all heard this song, sung to the tune of Johnny Cash's "I walk the line". But watch this 1 minute video to see how it came about.

                      That's not by choice! I'm unable to find any Taco Bell chefs. WTF, why can't I hire a Chef that can actually make Taco Bell food. Nobody can! It's ridiculous.

                      • You can tell who's running the country by the clothes people wear. Really! It's true. Some wear less clothes and some wear more. Those with less on tend to be more intelligent, but they avoid government service.

                        So who's running the government???

                          You are doing it wrong. You need to open a Taco Bell franchise, in your house.

                            I was actually thinking about funding/starting an Aryb's because they seem to be disappearing around us and the closest one is now something like ~30 miles away. I keep hoping someone else does. Also, we used to have a Burger King around ~5 miles away and the closest one is now like ~10 miles away. Now i'm salivating thinking about an Aryb's beef-n-cheese with sauce. I'll stuff my face on Thanksgiving and won't want to think about food for a week.
