Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
There were two good ol’ boys from the South, who love to fish, and they wanted to do some ice fishing. They’d heard about it up in Canada, so they took off up there. The lake was frozen nicely. They stopped just before they got to the lake at a little bait shop and got all their tackle. One of them said, “We’re gonna need an ice pick.” So they got that, and they took off. In about two hours, one of them was back at the shop and said, “We’re gonna need another dozen ice picks.” Well, the fellow in the shop wanted to ask some questions, but money is money, so he didn’t. He sold him the picks, and the old boy left. In about an hour, he was back. Said, “We’re gonna need all the ice picks you’ve got!” The bait man couldn’t stand it any longer. “By the way,” he asked, “how are you fellows doing?” “Not very well at all,” he said. “We ain’t even got the boat
in the water yet.” 😱😳😁😎
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
“In any place where they fight, a man who knows how to drill men can always be a king. We will go to those parts, and say to any king we find, ‘D’you want to vanquish your foes?’ And we will show him how to drill men, for we know that better than anything else. Then we will subvert the king, and seize his throne, and establish a dynasty.”
Answer:   The Man Who Would Be King

Daniel and Peachy are two ex-British soldiers who find themselves in India, when it was part of the British Empire. Rather than go home after they leave the army, they devise this plan to make money, and set themselves up as royalty. This quote comes from near the beginning of the movie, when they are telling Rudyard Kipling their plan.

Based on a short story by Kipling, he was played in the film by Christopher Plummer. Sean Connery and Michael Caine were absolutely brilliant under John Huston’s direction.

Friday’s Quizzler is….​
A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have the initial sounds switched to form new words. For example, “churning bear” is a spoonerism for “burning chair” (note that the pairs do not have to be spelled the same – only sound the same). 

From the definitions below, can you figure out the spoonerism pairs?
1. Thumper’s cellphone…mis-named nerve.
2. Where to buy a mallard…jammed portal.
3. Grizzly relative…two pin-lovers.
4. Sad iguana…Merlin slam-dunking.

5. Wasp accelerates…Half a six-pack.

Answer: 1. Bunny phone…funny bone.

2. Duck store…stuck door.
3. Polar bear…bowler pair.
4. Weeping lizard…leaping wizard.

5. Bee throttles…three bottles.  

Monday’s Quizzler is…….
There is an island filled with grass and trees and plants. The only inhabitants are 100 lions and 1 sheep.

The lions are special:
1) They are infinitely logical, smart, and completely aware of their surroundings.
2) They can survive by just eating grass (and there is an infinite amount of grass on the island).
3) They prefer of course to eat sheep.
4) Their only food options are grass or sheep.
Now, here’s the kicker:
5) If a lion eats a sheep he TURNS into a sheep (and could then be eaten by other lions).
6) A lion would rather eat grass all his life than be eaten by another lion (after he turned into a sheep).
1) Assume that one lion is closest to the sheep and will get to it before all others. Assume that there is never an issue with who gets to the sheep first. The issue is whether the first lion will get eaten by other lions afterwards or not.
2) The sheep cannot get away from the lion if the lion decides to eat it.
3) Do not assume anything that hasn’t been stated above.
So now the question:
Will that one sheep get eaten or not and why?
