Good morning, GN! It’s lovely to see you all! This next joke is brought to you from BrendaK and Fatwa’s Comedy Factory.

What goes ‘quack-thump quack-thump quack-thump’ and ends in a whine?

Barack Obama’s 2nd term!

Thank yew, thank yew. I’ll be here all week! Try the veal!

G’morning from brisk, sunny and Happy Larryville, GN.

We’re headed out to teh ClanK ancestral compound later this morning; guess I probably ought to shave today. Which strongly suggests moar coffee prior to applying a blade to my face…

Thank goodness for these:

So much classier than bits of “bath tissue” stuck to my face. As a kid, I thought that was a stupid euphemism as it was quite apparent turlet paper would be completely useless for drying-off after a bath.

But the FCC regs said you couldn’t say “toilet” on teevee until some time in the late ’60s. I suspect some of you recall the first ad to do so; can’t recall the brand, but it featured a cute old lady concluding the spot saying, “It doesn’t feel like [*whispers*] toilet paper.”

That was some risqué sh¡t back then. 😉

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
This weekend has been warm -- upper 80’s warm, with only a slight bit of cooling predicted. Time to break out the shorts and get some color on these legs so I don’t scare the children.

What’s wrong with that? Keep the little monsters off your lawn.

You need well-marbled fat kids like we have here; they’re pork-rind fed.

No, Fatwa, you may not barbeque the children.

(Yes, I know, you’re being stiffled.)

Elena was laughing.

It seems her mother had quite the reputation for deadly aim.

I’m delighted Elena enjoyed it. Plus, it tickles me that your MiL was known (and feared) for her accuracy.

Wish I had some video or even a pic of my Dad glaring; that was a very effective deterrent for his two boys. And delightful to watch…when it wasn’t directed at me.

Even more amusing (as it was used exclusively on serious malefactors) was the way that man could radiate 50,000 watts of menace. (I’m certain it also had a salutary effect on sales of Fruit-of-the-Loom and Hanes products.) 😉
