Leslie's Omnibus

From the Rowdies in the Back of the Bus

I have met the entire cast of characters in this podcast. (It was all Buckaroo Bonsai's fault.) Listen to the whole thing, then go back and listen to the outtakes. Yep. It's just like sitting around their kitchen table -- pretty freakin' hilarious.

Dash has a funny for you here.

Graumagus tells tales on his son.

Michelle has a duck tale for you.

Denny has the worst Monday Pun EVER. And also this tasteful little number.

Overheard in the Office...

From Elizabeth: Why It's Great To Be A Guy!

A 5 day vacation requires only one suitcase.

Bathroom lines are 80% shorter.

We can open all our own jars.

Phone conversations last 30 seconds.

We know useful stuff about tanks and airplanes.

Old friends don't care if we've lost or gained weight.

When surfing channels, we don't have to stop on every shot of someone crying.

Our last name stays put.

We can leave a hotel room bed unmade.

We can kill our own food.

The garage is all ours.

We get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

We never have to clean the toilet.

We can be showered and ready in 10 minutes.

If someone forgets to invite us to something, they can still be our friend.

Our underwear costs $6.50 for a pack of 3.

None of our co-workers have the power to make us cry.

We don't have to shave below our neck.

If we're 34 and single, no one notices.

Chocolate is just another snack.

Where and when we pee doesn't effect our emotional well-being.

We can quietly enjoy a car ride from the passenger seat.

Flowers & duct tape - and we can fix everything.

We never have to worry about other's feelings.

Three pair of shoes are more than enough.

We can say anything and not worry about what people think.

We can whip our shirt off on a hot day.

Car mechanics tell us the truth.

We don't give a flip if someone doesn't notice our new haircut.

We can watch a game in silence for hours without our buddy thinking "He must be mad at me."

One mood, all the time. We can admire Clint Eastwood without having to starve ourselves to look like him.

Same work. More pay.

Gray hair and wrinkles add character.

Wedding dress; $2000, Tux rental; 100 bucks.

We don't care if someone is talking behind our back.

We don't pass on the dessert and then mooch off someone else's.

If we retain water, it is in a canteen.

The remote is all ours.

We need not pretend we're "freshening up" to use the bathroom.

We can go to the bathroom alone.

If we don't call our buddy when we said we would, he won't tell our friends I've changed.

If another guy shows up at the party in the same outfit, we might become lifelong buddies.

The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected.

If something mechanical didn't work, we can bash it with a hammer and throw it across the room.

New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle our feet.

From Freddy:

An ugly man walks into a pub wearing a big grin on his face.

"Why the big smile?" asks the bartender.

"Well, I'll tell you," replies the ugly man. "You know I live by the railroad tracks and on my way home last night, I noticed a young woman tied to the tracks, so like in the movies, I, of course, went and cut her free and took her back to my place. Anyway, to make a long story short, I scored big time! We made love all night all over the house. We did everything, me on top, sometimes her on top!"

"Fantastic!" exclaimed the bartender. "You lucky man. Was she pretty?"

"Dunno...never found the head."

From Donna, who's always got my back:

Three contractors were touring the White House on the same day. One was from Chicago, another from Missouri, and the third from Florida.

At the end of their White House tour, the guard asked them what they did for a living. When they each replied that they were contractors the guard said "Hey, we need one of the rear fences redone. Why don't you guys look at it and give me a bid."

So to the back fence they went.

First up was the Florida contractor. He took out his tape measure and pencil, did some measuring and said, "Well I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me."

Next was the Missouri contractor. He also took out his tape measure and pencil, did some quick figuring and said, "Looks like I can do this Job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me."

Then the guard asks the Chicago contractor how much.

Without so much as moving the contractor says, $2700."

The guard, incredulous, looks at him and says "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

"Easy" says the contractor from Chicago, "$1,000 for me, $1,000 for you and we hire the guy from Missouri."

Another Freddy special:

Two alligators were sitting at the side of the swamp. The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said, "I cain't unnerstand how you kin be so much bigger 'n me. We're the same age, we was the same size as kids...I just don't get it."

"Well," said the big 'gator, "what you been eatin', boy?"

"Lawyers, same as you," replied the small 'gator.

"Hmm. Well, where do y'all catch 'em?"

"Down at 'tother side of the swamp near the parkin' lot of that law firm."

"Same here. Hmmm. How do you catch 'em?"

"Well, I crawls up under one of them Lexus and wait fer someone to unlock the door. Then I jump out, grab 'em on the leg, shake the shit out of 'em, and eat 'em!"

"Ah!" says the big alligator. "I think I see your problem. You ain't gettin' any real nourishment. See, by the time you get done shakin' the shit out of a lawyer, there ain't nothin' left but two lips and a briefcase."

Barrie sent me this a long time ago:

With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.

With WorldCom, you would have less than $5 left.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 10-cent deposit( in certain states), you would have $214.

Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. This is my new retirement program.

I call it my 401Keg program.
