WELCOME to WEDNESDAY JANUARY 27, 2021
Here’s the Story…..
An Indian chief was feeling very sick, so he summoned the medicine man.
After a brief examination, the medicine man took out a long, thin strip of elk
rawhide and gave it to the chief, telling him to bite off, chew, and swallow
one inch of the leather every day. After a month, the medicine man returned
to see how the chief was feeling. The chief shrugged and said, “The thong
is ended, but the malady lingers on.” Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story
and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe,
and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!
q u o t e s o f t h e d a y
Four years ago I asked out the girl of
my dreams for the first time. Today
I asked her to marry me. She said ‘no’ both times.
Marriage is mostly about knowing which
hand towels you can use and which ones
are for the better people who visit your wife’s home.
If I could become invisible, I would go to Paris,
find a performing street mime and beat the
crap out of him. The round of applause
he would get would be amazing.
G u a r a n t e e d to Make You Laugh!
I’m not the easiest guy in the world to get along with. So when our
anniversary rolled around, I wanted my wife to know how much I
appreciated her tolerating me for the past 20 years. I ordered flowers
and told the florist to enclose a card that read, ‘Thanks for putting up with me so long.’
When my wife got the delivery, she called me at work.
“Just where do you think you going?” she asked.
“What do you mean?” I said.
She read the card aloud as the florist had written it:
“Thanks for putting up with me. So long.” 😳😁😎
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Muriel said the __ have landed, whatever that means, Chief. And she said they were attacking her personally.” “Remember last time, when she called about that peeping Tom — you know who that was, don’t you? It was that Luther Grilk’s horse.”
Answer: The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming!
In the events leading up to this scene, Walt Whittaker (Carl Reiner) and his family are vacationing in a rented house on Gloucester Island off the coast of New England, during the Cold War. A Russian submarine captain, trying to get a glimpse of America through the sub’s periscope, gets too close to land and runs aground. A small party of Russian sailors, headed by Lieutenant Rozanov (Alan Arkin), then head to land to try and commandeer some motorboats, to pull them free. However, the sailors with their broken English and heavy pea coats don’t exactly blend in! In this scene the town telephone operator (Tessie O’Shea) calls Police Chief Link Mattocks (Brian Keith) at home to report line one. He responds skeptically with line two. In the 1967 Academy Awards, “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming” was nominated in four categories, including Best Picture (but lost to “A Man for All Seasons”). “
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from????

Tuesday’s Quizzler is….
I am like a gigantic dragon winding through deserts, grasslands and plateaus,
and am well over 2,500 years old.
I am high, strong and massive and have a greyish-blue colour,
but parts of my body are now in ruins and have disappeared,
although sections of me that still remain have great historical significance.
I began as a baby dragon some 700 years before the Christ appeared on this earth,
and as the years endured I grew to be an adult,
all the while continuing to strengthen my keepers.
Whilst I am considered to be the longest graveyard in the world,
no one is ever buried within me anymore.
What am I?
Answer: The Great Wall of China.
With a history of more than 2,500 years, some of the sections of the Great Wall are now in ruins or even entirely disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur and historical stature.
The construction of the Great Wall began between the 7th and 8th centuries B.C. when the warring states built defensive walls to ward off enemies from the north. It was only a regional project then, until the Qin Dynasty, when the separate walls were joined together and consequently it stretched from east to west for about 5000 kilometres and served to keep nomadic tribes out. The Wall was further extended and strengthened in the succeeding dynasties, especially during the Ming dynasty, when the northern nomadic ethnic groups became very powerful. The Ming rulers had the Wall renovated 18 times. As a result, not the remains from the Qin dynasty were restored, but some 1000 kilometers were constructed to a full length of 6,700 kilometers.
It is said during the construction of the wall, one worker is buried every metre within the rocks of the wall.
The Mandarin word for ‘The Great Wall of China’ is Wanli Changcheng.
Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….
A man was hiking in the hills for the first time and, for safety, he brings along two guides. At the beginning of the hike, the first guide said, “Keep all personal items close, stay behind me, and above all else, keep your balance around the steep dropoffs!” The second guide had never been on such a long hike and, despite the warnings, tumbled off one of the high cliffs and rolled into a valley. The second guide’s spine was broken in the fall. The man and the first guide watched the fall, shrugged, and moved on. Why did they offer no help or concern?
