Single Status Update
Good morning everyone!
I could not let this hiccup continue, so I came back to try and finish what I had started. What ever the problem was before, it was no longer there. So the triple update is complete. Thank you all for your patience.
What do you get if you send the Godfather to law school?
An offer you can't understand.
A game warden came upon a duck hunter who had
bagged 3 ducks and decided to "enforce the laws
He stopped the hunter, flashed his badge and said,
"Looks like you've had a pretty good day. Mind if I
inspect your kill?"
The hunter shrugged and handed the ducks to the
The warden took one of the ducks, inserted his finger
into the duck's rectum, pulled it out, sniffed it, and
said, "This here's a Washington state duck. Do you
have a Washington state hunting license?"
The hunter pulled out his wallet and calmly showed
the warden a Washington state hunting license.
The warden took a second duck, inserted his finger in
the bird's rectum, pulled it out, sniffed it, and said,
"This here's an Idaho duck. Do you have an Idaho

The hunter, a bit put out, produced an Idaho state
The warden took a third duck, conducted the same
finger test, and said, "This here's an Oregon state
duck. Do you have an Oregon state hunting license?"
Once again, only this time more aggravated, the
hunter produced the appropriate license.
The warden, a little miffed at having struck out,
handed the ducks back to the hunter and said,
"You've got all of these licenses, just where the hell
are you from?"
The hunter dropped his pants, bent over, and said
"You're so smart, YOU tell ME!"
We got lucky when we heard the old Piedmont Hotel
in Atlanta was getting a face-lift and its beautiful
maple doors became available for sale as salvage
items. We bought several and had them installed
in our 19th-century home.
Showing a friend around the house, I pointed out,
"You know, these doors are from the Piedmont

This woman is about to board a bus, but when she
steps up, she realizes that her skirt is too tight, and
she can't lift her leg to board. So, she reaches around

Skirt's still too tight, so she reaches behind her and
lowers her zipper some more, and tries again. She
still can't get on, so she reaches back and lowers the
zipper a bit more. She tries to step up, and feels two
hands on her butt push her up onto the bus. She
spins around and says, "Sir, I don't know you well
enough for you to do that!"
He says, "Lady, I sure don't know you well enough for
you to lower my zipper three times."
How do you make a pool table laugh?
Put your hand down its pocket and tickle its balls!

This bonsai tree is over 400 years old and that alone makes it special. What is truly
amazing is that this tree survived the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, on

Why is this one called ominous?

WTF fun fact #8416
They force the tree into a form of dwarfism by cutting away part of its root system and repeatedly pruning back its trunk, branch, stem, and foliage. Many of them are also trained into unusual shapes using wires to hold the form as it grows. Fans of the Karate Kid will remember that Mr Miyagi had a collection of Bonsai.
Bonsai is pronounced like the ‘Bon’ in Bon Voyage and ‘sigh’ like the verb.
Banzai, which some people inexplicably confuse it with, is an exclamation or a cheer.
