Steven Wright on dogs…
The other day, I was walking my dog
around my building…on the ledge.
Some people are afraid of heights.
Not me, I’m afraid of widths.
I had a dog once. I spilled spot
remover on him, and now he’s gone.
I put contact lenses in my dog’s eyes.
They had little pictures of cats on them.
Then I took one out and he ran around in circles.
I bought a dog the other day… I named
him Stay. It’s fun to call him… “Come here,
Stay! Come here, Stay!” He went insane. Now
he just ignores me and keeps typing.
He’s an East German Shepherd.
G u a r a n t e e d t o R o l l Y o u r E y e s!
A fellow and his wife living in Houston, Texas, where the people are all patriots, were blessed
with the birth of twins, two identical girls. These twins were born on the 4th of July, and the
father, being patriotic, said to his wife, “We will name them Liberty and Justice, after the pledge
of alligence”. His wife said, “Are you nuts? You can’t have girls going through life with names
like Liberty and Justice. We are going to name them regular girl’s names like Mary or Jane”.
Well, the argument went on for about a month, when a compromise was reached. They would
each name one of the girls. The man chose Liberty and the wife picked Elizabeth. As the girls
grew, they were so identical, they kept pulling tricks on people who couldn’t tell them apart.
Finally, when they were about 18, a young man took interest in them. He would take one out
on a date but he was never sure which one he was with. He decided he would marry at least
one of them, but he wasn’t sure which one he would marry. He went to the girls father and
explained his quandry. “I love your daughters and want to marry one of them, but Ican’t tell
them apart, so I will leave it up to you… Give me Liberty or give me Beth.” 😳😁😎
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“…Chief, you’re about as big as a […] mountain!”
Answer: “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975)
“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) is a movie based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Ken Kesey. Both book and movie were critically acclaimed with the movie one of only three movies in the twentieth century to have won the Academy Award Big Five (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Movie and Best Screenplay). Whilst the themes remain similar between book and movie, there are some important differences. In the book Chief Bromden is the narrator who watches the antics of Randle McMurphey’s battles against the orderliness and authority of Nurse Ratched, whereas in the movie, Chief Bromden is a secondary (but still important character), who is presumed to be mute and deaf. So when the Chief speaks two-thirds into the movie (“Hmmm, Juicy Fruit”) we the audience are taken by surprise.
