G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender, “If I show you a really good trick, will you give me a free drink?” The bartender considers it, then agrees. The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out a tiny rat. He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a tiny piano. The rat stretches, cracks his knuckles, and proceeds to play the blues.
After the man finished his drink, he asked the bartender, “If I show you an even better trick, will you give me free drinks for the rest of the evening?” The bartender agrees, thinking that no trick could possibly be better than the first. The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out a tiny rat. He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a tiny piano. The rat stretches, cracks his knuckles, and proceeds to play the blues. The man reaches into another pocket and pulls out a small bullfrog, who begins to sing along with the rat’s music.
While the man is enjoying his beverages, a stranger confronts him and offers him $100,000.00 for the bullfrog. “Sorry,” the man replies, “he’s not for sale.” The stranger increases the offer to $250,000.00 cash up front. “No,” he insists, “he’s not for sale.” The stranger again increases the offer, this time to $500,000.00 cash. The man finally agrees, and turns the frog over to the stranger in exchange for the money.
“Are you insane?” the bartender demanded. “That frog could have been worth millions to you, and you let him go for a mere $500,000!” “Don’t worry about it.” the man answered. “The frog was really nothing special. You see, the rat’s a ventriloquist.”
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “Okay, picture this. Two brothers, one speaks no English, the other learned to speak English from watching the “Wide World of Sports”. So, you tell me, which is better, speaking no English at all, or speaking Howard Cosell?”
ANSWER: Better Off Dead! Lane Myer (John Cusack) said this about the pair of Japanese brothers who would pull alongside of him at the stoplight and want to drag race. Written and directed by Savage Steve Holland (“One Crazy Summer”, “How I Got Into College” and “Eek the Cat” TV series), “Better Off Dead” is probably the funniest movie that most people have never seen. Watch for the “Simpsons”-like quips and intracacies in the background.
Monday Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Mister Lizard, ha ha, would you like a hamburger?”
Friday’s Quizzler is……….
I’m a ten-letter word, but when I am heard,
I have only four, not one letter more.
My first two sounds are neat; a kind of sheet,
That starts with spread, not the kind on a bed.
Of my sounds, the third is what will be heard,
alphabetically, in the middle of modus operandi.
If you want to hear more, then like the shore,
I end at the sea, that’s a hint, you see.
What word am I?
ANSWER: Excellency (XLNC)
The four letters, XLNC, sound just like the ten-letter word excellency.
The first two sounds (XL) are the name of a spreadsheet program.
If you arrange the letters in modus operandi alphabetically (addeimNooprsu), the letter N is the middle letter. Also, modus operandi is usually written as an abbreviation, MO, which in the alphabet, would have an N in the middle.
The final letter (C) sounds like sea. Do you see?
Monday’s Quizzler is……….
What is so incredible about the sentence below?
A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed, houghed, and hiccoughed.
