WELCOME to TUESDAY JANUARY 12, 2021
THINKING OUT LOUD………..
Why is it that when you’re driving and looking for
an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
If you have your finger touching the rearview mirror that says —
“objects in mirror are closer than they appear”, how can that be possible?
Why is it so hard to remember how to spell MNEMONIC?
If someone invented instant water, what would they mix it with?
Why is it called a TV “set” when you only get one?
Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
Why does an alarm clock “go off” when it begins ringing?
If pro is the opposite of con, is progress the opposite of congress?
Why does “cleave” mean both split apart and stick together?
Why is it, whether you sit up or sit down, the result is the same?
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a HAPPY
TUESDAY people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

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 Sunday School teacher of preschoolers told her students that she
wanted each of them to have learned one fact about Jesus by the
next Sunday. The following week she asked each child in turn what they had learned.
Susie said, “He was born in a manger.”
Bobby said, “He threw the money changers out of the temple.”
Little Johnny said, “He has a red pickup truck but he doesn’t know how to drive it.”
Curious, the teacher asked, “And where did you learn that, Johnny?”
“From my Daddy,” said Johnny. “Yesterday we were driving down
the highway, and this red pickup truck pulled out in front of us and
Daddy yelled at him, ‘Jesus Christ! Why don’t you learn how to drive?'” 😱😳😁😎
Mondays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“What do you mean, twenty feet short?” “You’re twenty feet short of the woods. The hole is right here in open. The guard is between us and the lights.”
Answer: The Great Escape
In the events leading up to this scene, Allied prisoners considered especially escape prone are being held in a special high-security “escape-proof” German POW (Prisoner Of War) camp, during World War II. Even though they are being watched closely, a mass escape through one of three tunnels dug from the camp to the nearby woods is being plotted by Squadron Leader Roger “Big X” Bartlett (Richard Attenborough) and a few other leaders. In this scene, the night of escape is reached and the tunnel far end is dug upwards to break the soil. Capt. Hilts “The Cooler King” (Steve McQueen) is first to stick his head out of the exit and is dismayed to see the tunnel is too short. He reports back to Bartlett, who then responds with line one. Hilts then clarifies the situation with line two. This movie is based on an actual escape of 76 POWs from Stalag Luft III prison camp near Munich, Germany. But while individual incidents in the film are mostly true, they were rearranged as to both the timing and the people involved. Historical note: Although most of the 76 escapees were eventually captured or killed, the escape did have the desired effect of diverting considerable German resources in tracking down the escapees and increasing the number of camp guards.
