    Do I Look Like?

    The husband came home from work, went to the kitchen to put away his lunch box and noticed that a cabinet door hinge had broken and the door was hanging askew. He proceed to put away his lunch box and dishes, went to the sofa and sat down to read the newspaper. The wife comes into the living room and advises her husband that the cabinet door needs repair. The husband lowers the paper, looks at his wife and states, Do I look like a carpenter to you?. and returns to reading the paper.
    A few days later, as the husband is putting away the lunch box, he notices that the sink is full of water. He goes to the sofa, picks up the news paper and begins to read. Again the wife comes into the living room and advises the husband that the garbage disposal on the sink stopped working and the sink is clogged and needs repair. The husband lowers his newspaper, looks as his wife and states, Do I look like a plumber to you?, and returns to reading the paper.
    A couple of days later, the husband comes home and notices that the food on the stovetop is creating a major amount of steam. Trying to be helpful, he turns on the switch to the vent-a-hood, but nothing happens. He goes to the sofa, picks up the newspaper and begins to read. Once again the wife comes into the living room to advise the husband that the vent-a-hood has shorted out and is not working. The husband lowers the paper, looks at his wife and states, Do I look like an electrician to you?, and goes back to reading the paper.
    A few days later the husband comes home from work, goes to the kitchen to put away his lunch box and supplies. He notices that the cabinet door has been repaired, the sink is clear and clean, the vent-a-hood is on and merrily running. The husband goes into the living room where the wife is reading a magazine. The husband asks the wife how much all of these repairs are going to cost him, assuming that a carpenter, plumber and electrician all had made repairs to the kitchen. The wife advises that husband that it did not cost him one red cent. You see, Johnny next door is very handy with tools. He offered to make all of the repairs if I would either bake him a cake, or sleep with him. Oh, says the husband, what kind of cake did you make him? The wife lowers the magazine, looks up at her husband, and says, Do I look like Betty Crocker to you?, and returns to reading her magazine.
    So guys, if she wants you to make the repair, Make The Repair!!

      Ok, 2nd grade humor! We were taking our restroom break, I'm standing out in the hall waiting for all 29 to be done. One boy runs out of the bathroom very offended. While at the urinal, another boy asks him if he was American. He said yes. The other boy said nuh-uh, you're a peein! I think I devastated the kid because I laughed! I'm not sure if either one really got the joke, but I did! In my little bubble, I have not heard that one before.

I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.

      A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an airplane. After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked: "Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?"
      The rabbi responded: "Yes, that is still one of our beliefs."
      The priest then asked: "Have you ever eaten pork?"
      To which the rabbi replied: "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich." The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.
      A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest: "Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?"
      The priest replied: "Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith."
      The rabbi then asked him: "Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?"
      The priest replied: "Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith."
      The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silently thinking for about five minutes. Finally, the rabbi said: "Beats a ham sandwich, doesn't it?"

        We occasionally go do bar trivia, and are usually one of the winning teams. At the bar, they have a monitor that rotates through specials, events, what's on tap, and witticisms. I have started to try to catch the witticisms so I could share them here. Or at least the ones I like.

        Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica ?
        Where do they go?

        Wonder no more ! ! !

        It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.

        If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.

        The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

        "Freeze a jolly good fellow."
        "Freeze a jolly good fellow."

        An American, an Englishman and a Scot are in a rural pub...

        A fly lands in the American's beer. He jumps up and starts making a scene. "G*&&%^$ there's a ^*(^(&%$ fly in my beer! Bring me another *^(&%*( beer! NOW &(^(&%!!" And they deliver him another.

        As fate would have it, a short time later another fly lands in the Englishman's beer. He half raises a hand to attract a barmaid... "Excuse me...eh, excuse me...if it's not much of a bother, I'd like another beer please. It just seems, well...it seems a fly has taken a liking to my beer and I'd really rather have another. If it's not a problem. Thank you ever so much" He too is given a fresh beer.

        Still later, another fly plops himself into the Scot's beer. He looks down and glares incredulously...then thrusts his hand into his beer grabbing the fly by the wings says, "Spi' it out ya wee bugger!"

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        the good one grill

        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
