Time for some fun, I heard these on the radio today.


1) During a heavy snowfall, how do snowplow operators make it to work?


2) How do you call in sick when you work at a hospital?


3) Why is it that you can get undressed in front of your wife or your girlfriend with no problems, but when both are in the room at the same time, you feel uncomfortable?


4) Why does the end cap on a BIC pen have a hole in it? (the breathing hole in a BIC pen is in the side).


5) If sales of hotcakes are doing well at the local IHOP, what do you call that?


6) How come Rosie O'Donnell has a career?


7) What do Asians call their good plates?

Sorry, can actually answer #4

The pen lid has a hole because regulations state that the design of a pen lid must either allow airflow of a certain quantity (typically around a clip - the clip would be designed to allow free flow of air around it) or that it must have a hole in the pen cap to allow that minimum quantity of air. This is in case a small child swallows it and it gets stuck - it might not be fatal with that much airflow allowed.

or are you talking about the bit that inserts at the back end? That is there so that you can look like a doofus when the ink comes out all over your teeth

I always see trucks with canoes on the top. Just once I'd like to see a canoe floating down a river with an upside down toyota tied on top of it.

What is "gruntled" and why haven't I ever met anyone who was gruntled?


I've met plenty of DISgruntled people, though.



Along the same vein, what's "combobulated"? Discombobulated, I've heard of many times, though.

Disgruntled is what happens when your pig loses his voice.


As for other other missing words:


We have nonchalant and nonplussed. Where are chalant and plussed?


And the infamous "near-miss". Doesn't nearly missing imply hitting?


I've heard of the Hessians; Where the hell is Hessia?


Why do we stack a bunch of homes into one building, and then call them apartments?


Cheese fondon't for cheese fondue haters?

Hessia could be a state in Germany northern to Bavaria.


What about "I will come tomorrow" ?

What does he want to morrow, or whom?

Does he want to morrow me or does he want to morrow you?

What is all this morrowing about?

Off the Off Topic, but why does it seem that crt people have a better sense of humour than dlp/lcd people?

Hehehe...

I spent a good portion of the last two non-productive workdays laughing at crt posts. I don't think I ever laughed at a dpj post. The first page of the 10'+ thread was hilarious.
