    ...and word plays. I love them. Yes, they're usually cheesy. Fine by me. I think they are a great way to keep things light. I use them all the time (when appropriate).

    Share some and when you have used them. I'm no so interested in famous ones by comedians.....but really there are no rules.

    Last night I was helping my kids with some crafts using clear tape. My wife came up and started chatting with us while we were working. I told her "Be careful what you say. I'm taping this whole conversation." :D (Wife rolled her eyes. :spit: 8 year old groaned. :spit: 5 year old cracked up. That's why she's my favorite. :laugh:)

    I was doing inventory at a music store once. I told the guy I was working with "1 accordion". He said "That's not an accordion. That's a concertina." I said, "Well, accordion to the box, it's an accordion."

    My kids used to like Dora the Explorer. I was in a toy store once and saw a rubber ball with Dora on it. It was......(wait for it)........ "Aaaaaaw, that's a Dora ball". (Say it out loud.)

    "Adorable." :wacky:

    I say stuff like that all day. I do it mainly to entertain myself. I am usually met with eye rolls unless it's really funny. But that's OK. I'm having fun.

    Do your worst. Let's have 'em.

    I aspired to be indifferent, but I couldn't be bothered.

    I was at a museum with a group of friends viewing ancient Egyptian artifacts. They had some linen that the Egytians used as toilet paper.
    I said "Oh look, it's john linen." Only one guy got it.

  6. My daughter and granddaughter (Gee I'm old) came to town last month for a 25th anniversary of the formation of my daughter's High School softball team. (Gee I'm old) So the celebration was at the new softball complex. My 8 year old granddaughter (Gee I'm old) asked her Mom if she could get something to eat from the *concussion* stand. :laugh: (Did I mention that I'm old?)
  7. A Garage Bander by any other name would be as old.

    My friend recently said he was going to see a chiropractor. I told him that I heard he was not all that he was cracked up to be.

    Do you know why dentists don't have any of their medical awards hanging on their office walls?

    It's because they work with plaque removers.

    I'll check with the staff about it.
    I'll be sure to take notes.
    Until then, compose yourself.
    If nobody else will take care of it, I'll duet.
    I'll waltz right in there and pitch them on your idea....and try to reed their tone on the matter. It shouldn't be a major problem but could require a large scale solution. I'll conduct myself with professionalism. Having drawn up a petition, all I have to do is get some key signatures. But negotiating is my forte.

    See? I can't turn it off!!!!

    Yesterday, I accidentally swallowed some food coloring. The doctor says I'm OK, but I feel like I've dyed a little inside.

    You need to scale it back--you're going to get us all into treble. Just trill out and refrain. That's the key.

    Ancient technology was much higher than we believe. In fact, automobiles date back to biblical times.
    For it is written that God drove Adam and Eve from the garden in a Fury...

    We even know that the apostles carpooled - "for all of them were in one Accord"...

    Why don't some couples go to the gym? Because some relationships don't work out.

    When notes get in treble, bass-ically they get put behind bars. The alto-nate punishment is to push them off a clef and hope they land flat on sharp objects.
